After having analysed types of Apps for movies let us see How to Choose the Best Approach for Mobile App Development:

Undauntedly mobile apps are very dominating devices in today’s techo-whaco existence.  Today success has a different definition. Success rate of an organization today is measured by the revenue generation ability through the usage of Apps. Organisations are subject to upward surge in terms of revenue trends; when technically innovative and interactive apps are involved very crucial in winning new customers. Using proper adaption and penetrative techniques as strategies to lure more customers retain old and existing customers as also attracting new customers are in constant use. This subjects companies into a dilemma while choosing right technique because of constant influx of new technologies that are being developed day in and day out. Since mobile app development is a complicated field and having multifarious options available; it therefore asks for keeping in mind certain strategic points while making mobile application development. Viz. App be targeted across all platforms, does the app need a uniform UX for the app across all platforms, what is EOL of apps etc. However, the needs of applications are different and differ from one organization to the other. However, the environment of development will mostly depend on the budget, amount of content, target audience, functionalities as well as requirement of the organization. Therefore, it becomes very pertinent here to note that in order to make a selection of the best platform for mobile app development, it is very essential to analyze each of these platforms and determine pros and cons of them significantly.


Native apps are built for two systems - iOS and Android. A need to create an application for a single platform, native app is chosen. It is a bit expensive and may vary in terms of cost depending on the framework to be used. However, due to constant introduction and influx of new gadgets, this may not prove as cost effective. For the reasons of better ensuring of digital content and the ability of the features of the application to translate easily across the devices, different networks and operating systems many people are resorting to HTML5 for mobile app development. Another big advantage of using HTML-5 is that any content be it in Word, Flash, PDF or any other format can be easily converted into HTML content base. Legacy browsers can be supported if the applications are built using this platform.  However, native apps have proved to be better choice because of its good performance and better look.


Another effective method of mobile app development is the hybrid solution. After being built into HTML-5, this fascinating app is wrapped up and enclosed in a native container. One of the significant advantages of “low coding” is that, it has allowed business organizations and various other units to create mobile apps in spite of having limited access to developers and programmers. Incidentally, for creating better hybrid apps, quality ionic framework and phone gaps are used. Since different companies have different needs of a mobile app, companies must therefore ensure, they use that kind of solution where companies have the flexibility to employ good team of content technologists, programmers and developers who are not only specialists but are also effective and efficient in formulating mobile app platforms and techniques respectively.


Technique in mobile phone is obviously different from DSLR in many ways. However, in many ways it can be treated as same.
