One of the most crucial decisions app-based startups will make is how to build their product.

This decision will impact the cost, timeline, functional limitations, and future maintainability of their product. Therefore, this is a decision that requires an in-depth evaluation and should not be taken lightly.

Although other approaches can get extremely close in terms of performance, usability, and interactivity, platform-specific native apps still have the edge. With that being said, this typically marginal difference is rarely worth the significantly increased costs associated with this approach.
The traditional native method requires that iOS and Android apps are built independently. This means the cost to build, test, and maintain the app is nearly doubled. Additionally, it means …
