Different Types of Mobile Apps1:10 with Sarah Parmenter
A mobile app can be made in various ways such as: Web, Native and Hybrid.
Even if you have no interest in learning how to code your app to something fully
functional, it's important that you know the different
methods developers use to make your app work.
Sometimes you might want to build an app using web techniques
rather than the native code that Apple requires you to program in.
You can harness the power of the web on both on advanced user interactions
and capabilities in order to achieve a
similar looking feel to that of native applications.
It won't be available via the App Store which means you can't charge for
it, but where that may perfectly solve
your development issues without having to go native.
Next up, we have native.
This uses objective C and Cocoa programming,
the native programming language of Apple software.
This is a fairly steep learning curve, but Treehouse already have fantastic
resources for this that you can dig into straight after you're done here.
You'll use a program called Xcode, made by Apple.
The hybrid method uses both web and native.
It can include a mixture of elements coded
in Objective C and Cocoa, as well as web views.
non-native mobile development framework such as PhoneGap.
