Here are the pros and cons of Native App
If these points cannot convince you in adopting Native then here is a live example. Sure all of you who possess a smartphone also have a facebook app. This app has now gone Native instead of using HTML5 as it was planning to do earlier.
The reason as given by a Facebook software engineer and cited by InfoQ.com is, “The biggest issues we’ve been facing here are memory related. Given the size of our content, it’s not uncommon for our application to exhaust the hardware capabilities of the device, causing crashes.”
According to Mark Zuckerberg’s interview to TechCrunch, “The biggest mistake that we made as a company is betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native because it just wasn’t there…since we’ve done the iOS app we’ve seen double the amount of feeds people consume.”
If Facebook, that cannot afford even a single scratch on it’s always growing reputation, can shift to Native then I guess you can too.
Amidst all this, Medium (a blog publishing platform) has just launched its very first app. So now you can use the app to keep updating your blogs as well. The highlight of this news is that even Medium chose to launch the Native Android app.
