Types of Android Applications
There are 3 types of Android applications.
- Native Applications
- Web Applications
- Hybrid Applications
Native applications are those that are installed from the .apk files. The calculator that you use on Android is a native application.
Web application is any website that you can view on browser in Android. So all websites that you can access on your mobile phone are web applications from Android perspective.
Hybrid applications are combinations of native applications and web applications. For example – Subway Surfer game is a hybrid application because it allows you to switch to browser mode and access facebook and come back.
