Approach

Native or hybrid development?*

Native

Native development allows full access to the devices capabilities, but must be built per OS (iOS and Android)

Hybrid

Hybrid development is easier and can run on any OS (iOS and Android), but allows limited access to the devices capabilities.

FAQ

Is this quote final?

No – it’s to give you an understanding on our pricing structure. Your app project could turn out to cost more or less depending on other functions/features and requirements. If you’re happy with the estimation you’re given, fill out the form and we’ll be in touch to arrange a meeting.

What about hosting and maintenance?

Please note that every app will require hosting and maintenance of some kind (App Store fees, databases etc.). Both of these services are required for your app to be live on the Internet and are most commonly purchased annually. If you want to handle app management yourself, simply let us know during our meeting.

It’s also important to consider how to maintain your app after it is launched, as regular updates, improvements and security patches are essential.

What about project timings?

We ask for expected start and launch dates to help verify if a project is viable or not. Rushing a project for launch is not recommended, but we can work with you to decide how to break down your app into smaller launchable components called an MVP (minimal viable product).

What is the difference between native development and hybrid development?

Native development requires a codebase for each operating system the app runs on, e.g., one set of code for Apple iOS and one set of code for Android. Native allows access to more robust device features and can use heavy processing, graphics and other in-device functions.

Native is best for apps where animations, user experience around movement and interactions and graphical elements are essential.

Hybrid development uses a single codebase to deploy to either Apple iOS, Android or both simultaneously. The code relies on Hybrid coding languages (like Ionic), which are not as stable as Native code. However, the cost is effectively halved due to only requiring one set of code for development. Note: some features may not be possible within a hybrid environment.

Often, the choice of Native or Hybrid comes down to cost, audience and required features.
