What is a native app?

Native apps are those apps that have been created or developed in a specific programming language or, in other words, for a specific operating system. Generally these operating systems are IOS or Android. Native apps are 100% adapted to the platform or operating system for which they have been created, so they are fast and allow access to the hardware functions of mobile phones. The only drawback of this type of app development is that it is more expensive, since an app has to be created for each platform.
