Mobile app development: hybrid vs native

Mobile App Development is a huge opportunity for all developers, but language and platform differences can make it difficult to know where to start. Does it make sense to invest time and resources to develop native apps that are specialized for a particular platform or are you better served by creating a web app that can be used more generically across multiple platforms? Here, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages to each approach as well as demonstrate a potential real world application using each scenario. We will guide you through building the same application using both Objective C and hybrid web technology to highlight the similarities, differences, and benefits of each approach.
