Or you could write a native app and provide a better experience for everyone :D

 

This. Oh how many times have people proven themselves wrong when choosing some of these quasi native solutions. Native is still the winner here.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

Right tool for the right job. I've built with native, hybrid, pwa ... there is a lot more that goes into this than just one factor. To name a few:

Team skills (and company skills)
Target audience and their devices
Features required
Company maintenance plans (who supports it)
Update policies at your company
...

Point being that even though developing a native app is a great way to get an awesome experience, it is not true to say developing with the other techniques is NOT going to give you that.

My personal take: I love and use Swift with iOS, PWA, React Native, and Ionic.
