We develop Native mobile apps, particularly for the OS of a particular type. Therefore, it is possible to create native apps for either iOS or Android. You are unable to combine different platforms. It is because its creation is specifically for a single OS. Just for eg, you cannot use a native android app on Windows mobile. You can use a wide number of scripting languages for developing these apps. React Native, Java, Swift, Kotlin, Python, Objective C are some of the languages. Some native apps can operate without the internet.
When compared to other categories of mobile apps, they make better use of the facilities available on the phone. The performance of native mobile apps is reliable. They are quicker, require less storage, and consume less battery life. This is due to the main sole focus of the applications. Native applications take advantage of the UI that is native to the phone, which provides consumers with a better optimal UX.
But, there is also the disadvantage of native apps. Once you begin the development, you have to repeat for each of the OS. This is a significant time and resource waste. It is not possible to duplicate the code that you develop for one platform upon other. This results in an increase in expenses. Additionally, to maintain the codebase and for each update; an amount of work is necessary. Popular apps like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Whatsapp are native mobile apps.
