Native apps (applications) are specific to a platform such as Android or iOS and sit at the opposite end to web apps. They are downloaded from online stores such as the Apple App store, Android Marketplace or Amazon. The assets and code for native apps generally live on the phone then talk to the web when requests are activated while using the application.
