Mobile: WAP vs. Native Application Development (Apps)

 

There are development platform options to consider when building a mobile application. Here is a comparison of WAP vs. Native platform solutions (Apps). This includes areas to consider not only upon initial deployment but post launch.

WAP vs. Native Application Decision (Apps)
Apps Advantages:
  • Library update
  • Direct technical support
  • User has more control
  • App store and device portal solution
  • Can apply existing User Interface (UI) standard for mobile users
  • Better UI design result, can take full advantage of each platform
  • Data persistent – data could be available even with no network connection; more option on data cached

WAP Advantages:

  • Open Source solution
  • One programming language or solution could be applied for different browsers
  • Centralized – more control – easy to update
  • UI design takes less time and code to implement
  • Fast development
  • No code size and memory limitations
  • Better integrated tracking
Apps Disadvantage:
  • Frequent library updates – Fluid technology
  • Not all are Open Source solution
  • Different programming languages
  • Different UI design pattern
  • Slow development time
  • Code size and memory limitation
  • Update depends on the app store or user to update

WAP Disadvantage:

  • Library update could be slow from time to time
  • Limited direct technical support
  • Library is still limited to utilize the native features
  • Browser rending issue for different version and browsers
  • Data persistent – limited option and fewer data space can be cached

Excellent post!!Android kernel uses kernel versions from 3.4, 3.10 or 3.18. Android kernel must be in-between these versions. Android is simple to use and very attractive to view. Some of latest android versions are marshmallow but recently a version of android 7 is released and its product name is nougat. Android is completely open source software which was developed by everyone.Thank you..!!
