native platform vs cross platform

So now are familiar with what are the types of mobile application development. Now, let’s compare both the platform and then choose which platform is best for you. Both the platforms are evolving day by day and both have their share of Advantages And Disadvantages. Now it’s up on “your requirement” that what should you choose? Both the technologies are better in their own ways.


Native PlatformCross Platform
AudienceNative applications are limited to a specific platform so it limits your Audience to a specific platform only. Native applications are useful when an application is developed for a specific Audience Only.The cross-platform application does not limit your application to a specific platform only. This application is compatible on more than one platform so the cross-platform application does not Limit Your Audience.
Winner : cross-platform application.
Flexibility of codeIn a native application, you can’t copy or reuse the code because you have written new pieces of code for a new platform. So you will be creating two apps for different platforms for the same brand only. Hence Native Application Code Is Not Flexible.In a cross-platform application, as the application is developed on one code you can easily copy or reuse the code. Cross platforms are compatible on more than one platform also. Hence Cross-Platform Application Code Is Flexible.
Winner : cross-platform application.
UpdatesIn the native applications as you have created different apps for different platforms. You have to roll out Different Updates for different platforms. The Bugs Detected are also different for different platforms so it has become a hefty process to roll out Individual Updates.In the cross-platform application as you have created an app on a single code the Updates rolled out are similar on every platform. So you don’t have to roll out Individual Updates for each platform.
Winner : cross-platform application.
Team managementIn native platform as you are developing different apps for different platforms. You have to form Different Teams According To Platforms. So team management is a Bigger Responsibility in native applications.In cross platform application you have developed an app which is compatible across several platforms so in cross platforms only One Team is enough for all the platforms.
Winner : cross-platform application.
PerformanceAs native app uses native app resources of a specific platform Native applications are Great On Performance as compared to cross platform application.As cross platform applications are developed to run across several platforms they are not as great as native applications In Performance. There are more compatibility issues in cross platform applications.
Winner : native application.
BudgetAs you are developing different apps for different platforms, you have to form different teams according to different platforms. This becomes more Costly And Time Consuming. This type of apps are not favorable for “start ups” because the process is very costly and time consuming too.As you are developing an app which can run on more than one platform you don’t have to go through the process of forming different teams, different updates, different bug issues so developing a cross platform application Is Not That Much Costly And Less Time Consuming.
Winner : cross-platform application.
FeaturesAs native applications are developed to use the native resources of the platform. The Features of native applications Run Smoothly on the platform. “One of the great benefits of native applications is offline feature”.Cross platform application can’t use the native resources of the platform because they have limited access to API(application programming integration). Cross platform applications are developed for different devices Varying Its Features. Developers are not sure about running of the features on different platforms.
Winner : native application.


As both the platform has their own share of advantages and disadvantages. It solely depends upon your “Business Requirements” that we strive to focus on at CodeEpsilon. Native applications are beneficial when you want to develop an application which is solely for the purpose of internally use for a specific agenda.

Cross platform applications are all rounder but they also lack some of the things. If you want to Develop An Application Faster and for the vast audience you should opt for cross platform applications.
