Hello, i hope you're doing well today..well, for a while now I've been having such a huge or heavy doubt about touching my Android App Development course on Udemy, reasons being that as a user of many applications on my smart phone i sometimes kindoff worry how much applications one can really handle handle or use.
Maybe I'm not beind clear enough here. Web apps are reusable (lemme just use that word for now) you really do not have them natively in your device, they can be called and discarded, but native apps on the other hand have to live withing your device and with the multitude of apps and people going into native app development, it worries me how much application they think a single human can have and use on their device.
I think the only thing that can solve this problem is the "Shared Economy" business model where a single platform can rent spaces to other service providers and businesses. What i mean is, apps need to be integrated to survive and not isolated. Like I can have my bank app inside of my Facebook app, i think this would help solve the problem for Android and IOS developers and users alike. Unlike web applications, they are passive and we can have a trillion (i bet we do have that much already) web application and a single person can access them all, that cannot be said of native applications as you would have to uninstall and install the other in order to use them.
I'm very concerned and worried as how this market will handle this very challenge as I've seen a lot of growing businesses seeking to develop a native app and without a huge edge in their industry and market, i fear they might be going the wrong way and as someone who desires startups to achieve a high level of success, it worries me that i may develop alot of native apps that may never see the light of day in a fiercely competitive industry.
I'd like to read your thoughts on this too..thank you.
