Working in mobile security over the last 5 years I often hear some combination or variant the following questions:
Sooooo, if you’re not a mobile developer this all may sound like alphabet soup to you. Well, don’t worry you’re not alone. As I said, I get these questions all the time. And tbh, it was confusing to me at first as well, and I live and breathe mobile!).
In this article, I’ll break down the difference between native, non-native, hybrid, cross-platform and progressive web apps — and explain a bit about why those differences exist.
Quick note: this is by no means intended to be a hard-core technical definitional document. Nor am I proclaiming that this is an ‘exhaustive’ list (ie: my goal is not to define all the ways that there are to make apps). Nor is this a proclamation of which is ‘better’. Quite frankly, the answer to that question is: you guessed it: it depends.
So read this blog if you want a quick and simple way to understand the basic differences between native and non-native apps.
Ok here goes!

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?
In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.
Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.
Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.
The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:
Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.
React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:
Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

Every year, the world is expanding with the launch of new smartphones and other gadgets available in the market. According to Statista, more than 50% of the population will be using smartphones by the end of 2021.
Hence, businesses worldwide have understood the importance of smartphones and are joining the mobile industry by launching native apps.
Apart from native apps, progressive web apps is another technology that is gaining a lot of attention among businesses. Moreover, various leading companies worldwide have openly accepted PWA and built progressive web apps.
Now, the question arises, how is PWA different from the native apps? Read More

In the world of overrated terms “web development”, a mobile app wireframe design is one of the most underrated terms. The design of wireframes is considered when people look for the bigger picture.
While designing the UI-UX, people forget the simple norm of general to specific shifting. As the complexity increases and so does the approach become more difficult, this is where the designing of the wireframes comes in handy.
Before diving into the “How to”, let’s first see why we need them in the first place.
Wireframes are the skeletal layouts of an application or a website that is being designed. The specificity comes into play, the elements and the features have to be placed at specific locations. Take a building, in the process of making it, first the foundation is laid and then pieces are fitted together from the skeleton structure on a piece of paper, wireframes do the same for the website or application structure such as a smart home application.
The designing of wireframes is commonly known as wireframing. For the construction of a building, the framework or the skeletal structure is important while designing a web application or mobile application, wireframing is important to make it user-friendly. This entirely and solely works to make the journey smooth and destination easy to reach.
As for the building, the layers of cementing and painting is done later to increase the visual appeal, the visual contents and appealing stuff are added after wireframing. The simpler it sounds after the definition, the complex it gets when it is being done.
It is a very goal-oriented procedure, one has to keep in mind is the goal of the product or the destination of the service. The main focus should be on UX. The arrangement of the elements and their interaction with each other and with the user is the utmost important task in mobile app wireframing.
One has to keep in mind that skipping this entirely can lead to the failure of the entire process of web and mobile app development at the end.
Again taking the example of the construction of a building, the foundation must be laid first based on the skeletal framework that has been prepared, then only you can jump to beautify your building, as a designer one has to understand and follow the steps where designing the mobile app wireframe comes first and then the visually appealing content is added next not the other way round.
For the most part, people do not understand the importance and come up with some trashy design of wireframes and the main foundation becomes faulty, hence the entire designing at later stages becomes faulty. If one wants to skip the reworking part, mobile app wireframing must never be ignored.
