Mobile app development is the act or process by which a mobile app is developed for mobile devices. The mobile development process involves creating installable software bundles (code, binaries, assets, etc.) , implementing back-end services such as data access with an API, and testing the application on target devices..
There are four major development approaches when building mobile applications

Native Mobile Applications: Native mobile applications are written in the programming language and frameworks provided by the platform owner and running directly on the operating system of the device such as iOS and Android.
Cross-Platform Native Mobile Applications: Cross-platform native mobile applications can be written in a variety of different programming languages and frameworks, but they are compiled into a native application running directly on the operating system of the device.
Hybrid Mobile Applications: Hybrid mobile applications are built with standard web technologies - such as JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5 - and they are bundled as app installation packages. Contrary to the native apps, hybrid apps work on a 'web container' which provides a browser runtime and a bridge for native device APIs via Apache Cordova.
Progressive Web Applications: PWAs offer an alternative approach to traditional mobile app development by skipping app store delivery and app installations. PWAs are web applications that utilize a set of browser capabilities - such as working offline, running a background process, and adding a link to the device home screen - to provide an 'app like' user experience
Each of these approaches for developing mobile applications has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. When choosing the right development approach for their projects, developers consider the desired user experience, the computing resources and native features required by the app, the development budget, time targets, and resources available to maintain the app.
