Hybrid development has been growing in popularity over the years. This methodology relies on web technology Javascript

With a hybrid app, you can write the code just once and deploy it on multiple platforms. Unlike low-level coding, you won't necessarily need to hire more than one developer. Any web developer who knows how to write Javascript should be able to create a hybrid app.

The same code can be used to deploy your app on Android, iOS, and other platforms.

React Native, Cordova on PhoneGap, lonic, and Titanium from Appcelerator are some of the most popular hybrid development tools on the market today.

You'll still have lots of custom control over your app with a hybrid build. But since you're using Javascript instead of native code, the performance will be slightly below low-level coding. Again, this won't matter for most apps. But if you're building a game or a similar type of app, hybrid development might not be the best choice for you.

Due to the low cost, quick development time, and flexibility of these apps, hybrid development is very appealing to businesses and entrepreneurs who want to get their app to market as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.
