I haven’t read your whole comment, but….

Just kidding. You make a good point, I wasn’t intending to be misleading about React Native. I lumped it in, because it falls under alternative methods of building apps. You’re correct — it’s not hybrid in the sense that a pure native app is created, but you do use JavaScript instead of “official” languages like Swift/Java, etc. As for the appropriateness of the approach — in the end, the technology doesn’t matter. Creating value for people and businesses does. If an app can run in a browser and a native app in the App Store, well… that results in a wider audience reached.
