Why develop a native iOS application?

In recent years, mobile application development for iPhone is one of the most lucrative businesses. It's not surprising that companies from all over the world have embarked on this adventure. Indeed, the AppStore applications are more profitable and their development is easier and less time consuming. Moreover, iOS users often invest more money in their applications to access premium features.

An unfailing commitment from Apple to its users

The popularity of the platform is unquestionably attributable to Apple's unwavering commitment to giving its customers only the best. In actuality, compared to industry standards, the regulations implemented by Apple are quite strict. A lot of scrutiny must be given to an application before it can be published on the App Store, and this includes strict adherence to the graphical style guide, and technical specifications set forth by Apple. Particularly in regard to the thematic structure, user interface fluidity (UX/IX), and application stability.
