Because the bridge acts as an added interface between the app and the mobile's features, hybrid apps tend to run slower than native apps. Hybrid apps can also run equally faster or slower than web apps whose web portion is hosted on a server. Furthermore – when this is the case and unless cached on the mobile – the web content is only accessible when Internet is available. Usually an hybrid app would work partially offline.
If you're looking for a mobile app that needs access to native mobile features, easy to maintain and that can be ported to other platforms without much re-coding efforts then a hybrid mobile app is likely to be what you need.
At Red Flag we've released mobile apps that maximise the mobile user's experience. We have extensive knowledge and experience in covering the full mobile app development project lifecycle from taking the initial requirements and presenting a mockup to deploy the mobile app on the market and closely monitor its performance.
