- Native apps are developed specifically for each different OS. These apps can utilize the inbuilt device features, like GPS, Camera etc. These apps are faster and greatly responsive, but they consume time & money, since the code base required, is different for each OS.
- On the other hand, hybrid apps are a cusp of web-based and native apps, because they inherit the uniform functionalities of web-based apps and the ‘native’ code base of native apps. Hybrid apps have various benefits, such as they are economical and take less time to develop; also, these apps can work on various OS without any hassle.

Like any other app platform, Hybrid mobile app also has its own set of restrictions and limitations, which have to be considered, before picking this platform for the app development process. Hybrid apps offer a variety of benefits for the users and the developers, but followed are some of the limitations in Hybrid mobile apps, and these limitations are:

There are certain boundaries, where designers have to take a back-seat and curb and mold their creativity into some different direction when it comes to full-fledged integration of animation within the hybrid mobile app.
- Tools and Debugging
The native app development provides the better tooling to test and debug the work, which makes it into a less time-consuming to find and fix the app bugs, on the flip side, hybrid app do not provide reliable hybrid app development tools to debug and fix the issues, which at times consume a little more tie for the developer to identify and fix the bug.
