Native mobile apps as its title might suggest is inherently designed to work on a specific platform or Operating System. The two popular native platforms include Apple's iOS and Google’s Android, these native platforms enable an app to maximize the operational utility of the device i.e. smartphone, which greatly enhances the user experience. Some of the benefits include:
A web-based app has its business logic running on the server-side and minimum memory is occupied on the user device. Typically it's a responsive design that is run by a browser and written in HTML5. This also means that a web app doesn't have to build and maintain apps for separate platforms, thus saving a business time and money.
There is also no need to install them from an application platform store. Because the database is maintained on the internet server, the user device can grab the required data irrespective of the platform. Web apps became more popular with the onset of Android Progressive Web Apps (PWA) and iOS web app for iPhone that delivers a mobile app-like experience via a web browser.
One of the strong arguments in favour of Web apps is that if the app doesn't need to use on-board features like a GPS, accelerometer and complex gestures or camera then the simplicity of a web app is worth considering, especially when it can bypass the app stores and a user can simply save the URL like an app icon on the home screen.
Hybrid apps are faster to build and feel like a native app, however it doesn't have the same access to the mobile OS as a Native does which uses Java for Android and Swift for iOS platforms.
