Native or Web mobile app?


Native apps versus mobile web — it’s still a hot debate, regardless of the fact that it’s been going on for a good couple of years at this point.

How can you scrape off the layers of hype and FUD to find what’s really best for your startup, your budget, and your team’s skill set?

Personally, I side with mobile web. Most programmers can handle the technologies behind it, and there are more tools every week for building and monitoring web apps on phones and tablets. And the cost of building mobile web apps versus hiring staff or an agency to build two or three or four native apps is pretty compelling.

Here’s a chart to decide whether to build a native or web mobile app:
