Times have really changed and it is basic for any business to rapidly adjust with the most recent innovative improvements. According to 2016 research, 49 percent of the enterprise workforce identifies mobility as a significant part of their work style.

Mobile is fast becoming the most popular and profitable channel. But mobile is also set to change the bricks-and-mortar retail landscape. It is important to understand that consumers now see mobile as providing instant access to the information about products and services that help them reach a purchasing decision.

Types of Mobile Applications:
Native Apps:  These apps have been developed for a particular platform. They are coded in a specific programming language like C, Java or iOS and so they have high degree of reliability. Native app installed from application store like Android’s Google play and Apple App Store. The application which can be installed into your devices and run are known as native application.

A native application (native app) is an application program that has been developed for use on a particular platform or device. Because native apps are written for a specific platform, they can interact with and take advantage of operating system features and other software that is typically installed on that platform.

Hybrid Apps: These apps are similar to native apps and are written with web technologies. Hybrid applications are web applications (or web pages) in the native browser, such as UIWebView in iOS and WebView in Android (not Safari or Chrome). Hybrid apps are developed using HTML, CSS and Javascript, and then wrapped in a native application using platforms like Cordova.

A web-to-native abstraction layer enables access to devise capabilities that are not accessible in Mobile Web applications, such as the accelerometer, camera and local storage.

Web Apps: These apps are not really apps. They are really websites that look like native applications. These are stored on a remote server. Web applications runs from mobile web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc using mobile network or Wi-Fi.

Every startup begins with an idea hoping to generate profits in the future. You don’t need to have an exceptional mind to have lots of ideas, all you need is to know and ensure what people want, what they need and how you can deliver it to them. Just like any other field, app industry needs to have innovative ideas to start with. If you want to develop your app, all you want is to know what people are expecting from the app or in other words – a unique app idea.

For any business, customer is a king. Engaging customers leads to more profits in your business, this task can be finished with less effort by developing a mobile app. Mobile apps are the perfect ways to engage customers without any risks, this is the latest trick using by all startups. 

With the mobile industry thriving like it is at the moment, it is worthwhile for every business to invest in mobile app development. If your business is not mobile and not thinking about investing in mobile app development, then you are already behind your competitors. Even if your competitors are not mobile, they soon will be.
