Hello,

I'd like to have the experts take on this piece "Stuck between HTML5 and Native App? Let the Experts Decide!"
Is it true that we can't select the development scope of our project and should trust the experts or the app makers in this regard?

Detailed reply on the basis of that article will be very appreciated.

Thanks

Well, @selena let me help you with the Native and HTML5 apps. I know I don't have that developer knowledge but I can help you out in understanding the HTML5 and Native App !

Native app: They are the applications that lives inside your device means there is no need of active data connection, for their functioning !! But the major problem with these application is they are bigger in size means they takes up more of your space. It is mostly used in gaming application development.

HTML5 app: These applications are usually smaller in size because they live over the web, and running such application requires active data connection all the time means if you are in a place where data connection isn't available means you can't use the application.

and the third type is HYBRID app, this type of application posses the quantities of Native as well as HTML5 based application but not the cons of it. the major problem with this type of Application development is they are much more costly.

Well, yes Native apps works well while creating sophisticated apps like GPS, sensor or other...... because as I have previously said that Native apps doesn't require an active data connection for their working rather than the HTML5 app.
