Now a days, mobile apps play a vital role and have changed the focus from what’s on the Websites, to the apps on mobile device. Hybrid application are like any other apps you will find on mobile. They can be installed on your device and you can find them in app stores.

Like the websites on the internet, hybrid mobile apps are built with a combination of technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and then wrapped in a native application using any platforms. The key difference is that hybrid apps are hosted inside a native application that utilizes a mobile platform’s webview. (We can think of webview as a chrome browser that is running in full screen.). Android and iOS, both provide very easy methods to communicate back and forth, so users of app won’t even notice when they go from native to web and back again. Frameworks like Cordova (Phone Gap) or Titanium have made development of hybrid applications much easier.

There is no doubt that each type of application has some pros and cons. Application development is always changing, and hybrid apps development is constantly improving as well. In this post, we will go over some of the pros and cons of hybrid application development.
