Why hybrid apps is a growing trend for 2015

There is an interesting article on the Universal Mind blog about the upcoming trends in 2015. One of these trends is Hybrid Apps.

In the article the author, Peter Traeg, talks about how the recent updates in the webviews for both Android and iOS have made great steps forward in performance. This with the latest phones be more powerful, mean that hybrid apps are no longer slow, badly performing apps.

This, with the new set of hybrid frameworks, like Ionic, Famo.us, Polymer and TouchstoneJS. Hybrid app development is really growing and becoming a viable option for app development.

As a web developer I am a big fan of hybrid development, being able to use the web skills I’ve been using over the last 16 years I can create fully featured, cross platform apps.
