Many companies recognize the need to develop a mobile app, but not all of them consider the actual requirements they have for such an app.
Creating a native mobile app from scratch is not the only way. For a large number of projects, middle-of-the-road options such as Progressive Web Apps and hybrid mobile apps will be the optimal choice.
Consider your goals and how many functionalities of the mobile device you will need to use. Knowing those, you can decide on the best solution to implement your desired features.

Combining a native wrapper and elements of an existing web app, hybrid mobile apps are a great way to save time and money in the creation of your mobile app.
Hybrids are a versatile solution with one codebase supporting multiple platforms, created using frameworks such as Ionic, Cordova and React Native. They offer more features than a PWA while still being more cost-effective and easier to implement compared to native apps.
