Dynamic applications are in some way reliant on an online server or database. When connected these apps are loaded from a central server so that any iterative changes to development, design or functionality are rolled out across all devices simultaneously.
First we’ll look at some of the pros and cons of building a static mobile application.
Static apps are by their nature self contained, and therefore their development is often comparatively simple. As a result development costs are usually lower than a dynamic build, as there are no complex external databases to manage.
The fact that all the necessary data is bundled in the installation file also makes static apps easy to scale. As the app is attained through a simple download link, it can be distributed to millions of users without ever facing the problem of server overload.
However, for the same reason, the process of updating a static app is at the discretion of the user. In order to improve the user experience, your user base must actively choose to install your latest iteration. This exposes one crucial flaw: security.
With dynamic applications, it is easy to bring new features online as development objects are not restricted by predetermined variables. New features can be added often without the need for software update, and when update is required, it can be mandatory across all devices.
