About Appitized and HTML5

Appitized offer both HTML5 App and hybrid app development to our customers. The choice between a Native, HTML5 or Hybrid approach very much depends on the project and all the various options will be discussed with your project manager in the initial stages of the project.

What’s the difference?
  • Native Apps – An integrated software application written in the native language e.g. Objective C/Swift for iOS or Java for Android
  • HTML5 Apps – Online only HTML5 web application (mobile website)
  • Hybrid Apps – A combination of native and HTML5 usually HTML5 running in a Native “container”
