When you are aiming to create apps for iOs mobiles, remember that Apple has provided interface through touch-screen, which requires your app to be equipped with objective C, using Xcode, native environment for development of app. For Android mobiles, Java is the language for programming. Compared to Apple’s iOs, options for developing environment are more in Android mobiles, though Eclipse is popular system.
Another method of App Development is the Web App Development. Though it is normally concluded that an app is for mobile devices, there are instances when Web is preferred. As the name suggests a Web app is based on web-access, using a particular digital device. If web app is designed responsively it can take the place of mobile app, serving mobile users like the native or hybrid mobile app.
The advantages of web apps include, no dependence of app stores, which means it can be developed very quickly; as app communicates with only web languages you can design it responsively so that it can be used on mobile systems as well; though the most disadvantageous feature is that web app cannot access storage of local devices and needs a wireless connecting facility.
Let us remember, Mobile App Development depends on what you expect it to perform. When you launch your mobile app, you are launching your private browser.
