Native apps are developed for the individual OS of the device itself. By being crafted to interface directly with the devices’ OS, native apps can do more than any other style of development. Including controlling just about every feature of the device you’re on. They can use the accelerometer, camera, GPS, notifications, contacts, etc. All this while adding speed and enhanced User Interface control.

Native apps are appropriate when you need to provide a complex or highly polished mobile experience. They support advanced functionalities such as 3d graphics, and make use of phone features like augmented reality, location based services and third-party device integration via technologies such as Bluetooth, WiFi or Near Field Communication (NFC).
These apps can help you to engage more customers, through excellent user experience and exciting, rich features. Turning your idea into a native app will also provide you with simple options to monetise your app. Native mobile apps can be distributed through selected app stores and promoted via mobile ad networks.
