Native Mobile apps built on the Mendix platform differ from Hybrid Apps in that they are not rendered inside a web view. PhoneGap, which was earlier used by Mendix to build Hybrid Apps internally, was earlier used by Mendix to build Hybrid Apps internally used Apache Cordova to render UI elements inside a web view. But with native Mobile apps, Mendix utilizes React Native framework in which all the UI elements are rendered natively on Android and iOS platforms, and this translates to fast performance, smoother animations such as swipe gestures, and enhanced access to low-level devices capabilities.
Mendix Native Mobile Apps render the same Native components such as Text View, Scroll View, Image View which is available on Android and iOS Platforms. The React Native Bridge takes care of translating the components into platform-specific native components and generates different artifacts.
