A native application is normally built specifically for a mobile device’s exclusive platform (Apples’ iOS, Google’s Android) and until recently was limited to that device’s native language (Java for Android and Objective C for Apple). Native apps can only be accessed by downloading the application directly to the device via the devices App store and are normally accessed by an icon on the phones home screen.

So there you have it, a quick summary of the core differences between web apps and native apps.
