Specific use-cases can warrant the need for native mobile apps. Before the building phase, we discuss the goal you aim to achieve with the software and then rule out the possibility of a web app or desktop app.
Typically, the need for a native mobile app arises when the convenience and feature-richness of smartphones are more suitable than web or desktop apps.
Naturally, there are potential downsides to using a mobile app. The end-user needs to devote time to download the app, allocate memory for the app to live on the device and contend with regular updates or compatibility issues. Therefore, it's imperative to evaluate how the app will be used and how it will complement your business goals. In some cases, it may be necessary to build a mobile app and a web app or a hybrid that functions as both.
