Posted by Twain Taylor in MobileMobile Development & Testing

The jury is out on which type of mobile app is the future of mobile computing. The stats point to native being the dominant app type in use. Most of the top 100 apps in the app stores are native, and comScore reports that 50% of all time spent digitally is spent on mobile apps (though it doesn’t give a split between native and hybrid), and just 7% is spent on mobile web apps.

It depends largely on the platform, the type of tests, and the nature of your software. But before we go into details, let's take a quick look at the terminology, which can be a bit uncertain (if not outright confusing) at times. There are three terms that you're likely [...]
