It’s not about the developers.
Read my paragraph toward the end. It’s not about the developers.
Max Lynch

Well, the wording is only for the developers, because end users don’t know what native means, or hybrid, or web technologies. Developers do, and they need a way to distinguish different solutions to problems, especially if they get emails like “the textarea in your app doesn’t work like in this other app I have”.

Hence, devs must know the difference (and limitations) of hybrid apps and native apps. No gain in calling them the same, when they clearly aren’t — capability-wise. And Ionic does have its limits compared to native apps.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
