If It Weren’t For Apple, Hybrid App Development Would Be The Clear Winner Over Native
Sam Delgado

The hybrid app development is with so much irony that half of it would be enough.

It is easy to make a robust Android version, but the performance will be mediocre. It is hard to make a robust iOS version, but the performance will be oh’ so much better until you start running into memory issues.

The WkWebview garbage collector is a piece of ****, and iOS will rather kill your app/webview than let the garbage collector run if your memory consumption spikes at the wrong time.

Also, if Android phone manufacturers started paying attention to single core clock speed and not DPI, hybrid apps would shine on Android.

Hopefully in a couple of years, we’ll stop making Hybrid apps and just build a PWAs (assuming Safari starts supporting SWs)
