This image has top three hybrid framework for app development i.e is Xamarin, react native and flutter.

Introduction: What do you mean by hybrid frameworks?

When it comes to delivering a high-quality mobile experience to your browsers, native app development isn't the only option. Where a few developers vote for cross-platform development, others consider Hybrid frameworks to build native-like mobile apps. One reason is that it reduces the time to market while offering native-like experiences.

But that's not it. There's more to the idea than what meets the eye. To help you understand hybrid frameworks and how they help create native-like apps, we have designed the article given below.

Top Three Hybrid Frameworks for App Development Flutter

One of the best Hybrid frameworks, Flutter is developed by Google and accounts for the design/deployment of hybrid applications without any hassle. Moreover, the framework allows the creation of apps with a native-like look and feel. 

As an open-source app development SDK, flutter reduces the time taken to build an app, one that can run on any platform. From Android to iOS, and web, Flutter helps create stunning apps for all.

React Native

React Native is a Facebook product and launched in 2015. It is one of the oldest and renowned frameworks in the hybrid development space. React Native has huge community support and most of the top companies use React as their front-end framework. 

Major offerings include a hot reload feature, a single code base for both Android/iOS platforms, reduced development time, and optimized cost.


Leveraging C# and .NET libraries, Xamarin is another hybrid framework facilitating the development of iOS/Android apps. In addition to this, Xamarin is one of the frameworks that allow developers to reuse 90% of the code. 

With a community of 1.4mn developers, Xamarin is backed by Microsoft. It uses C# as it's a programming language and the fact that it is compiled natively, it accounts for the creation of apps that have the look and feel of native Android/iOS apps.

What advantage does a hybrid framework have over native ones?

Having said the above, it is clear that there are tons of hybrid app development frameworks, each of which possesses unique features, helping them stand out as an app development framework.

Let's walk down the advantages one has while choosing a hybrid framework over native ones.

A single code handle:

Considering the fact that hybrid frameworks make use of a single codebase for the development of apps, developers need not build different codes to run the application on separate platforms. 

When a bug would mandate you to work on Android/iOS code in a standalone environment, hybrid development requires a single change, and the code is modified for all platforms.

A single team can work on both iOS/android development:

A single code for all of the platforms means that a single team can undertake the job of building the same. You need not hire an Android development team and/or iOS development team. Above all, you can have one that excels in hybrid app development.

Reduces time to market:

With reduced code for development, the time taken to build the app reduces. It cuts down the total time, thereby reducing the time to market.

Reduced development cost:

In conclusion, the cost associated with app development is less. For one, you have a single codebase, one time, and the app developed in lesser time. For this reason, the cost is less as compared to native app development.


Even though the decision of which framework to use largely depends on the project requirements, a hybrid framework seems to be a better option when you are looking for ways to build feature-rich apps swiftly and quickly. Since startups are limited in budget and seek the development of apps in lesser time, hybrid is the ideal choice for app development.
