Native mobile apps are built specifically for a particular mobile operating system (such as iOS or Android) using programming languages and development tools that are supported by that platform. A native app is designed and optimized to run natively on the device and take advantage of its specific hardware and software features. Native apps are installed directly on the device, accessed from the home screen, and can work without an internet connection.
The main difference between the two is that native apps are built specifically for one platform and can provide better performance, while hybrid apps can work across multiple platforms with the same codebase, reducing development costs and time-to-market. However, hybrid apps may suffer from performance issues and have limited access to device-specific features compared to native apps.
