A - A native app is an app for a certain mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet, which is installed directly onto that device. Native apps are designed specifically to work with the device they’re developed for. They’re usually downloaded through an online store or marketplace, such as the App Store (for Apple) or the Google Play store (for Android).
A - A mobile web app is Internet-enabled app with specific functionality for mobile devices. They’re accessible through the mobile device’s browser and, unlike native apps, do not need to be downloaded and installed on the device.
