August 04 10:00 2014 Print This Article

Native and web software products are constantly competing. Their producers combine, improve and adjust divers best practices and techniques in order to create mobile or desktop software with excellent performance, suitable functionality and rich user experience.

Hybrid software products appeared in course of this competition. There are many different kinds of hybrid programs. They are meant to combine benefits of web and native applications and are especially popular on mobile devices. Mobile application testing, desktop testing and web site testing discover strengths and weaknesses of hybrid systems.

Strengths of Mobile Hybrid Programs Are:

  • they provide better and richer user experience than web software products, as they take advantage of built-in features of operation systems, as well as native applications do;
  • they have one code suitable for different platforms, the same as web programs have.

Among frequent problems of hybrid systems that are found during compatibility testing is different appearance of the software in various operation systems, their versions and various browsers.

Performance testing also demonstrates that software products of this kind perform slower than native applications and require more resources, as they must use a web browser for work. Quality of functioning of a hybrid application depends on network connection quality, the same as functioning of a web program.

A software testing company can confirm that hybrid programs are interesting and promising way of technologies combination, though there are still many things to improve.
