In this year’s Oculus Conference, Facebook released its Rift Core 2.0 which has a multitude of enhancements and upgrades from its previous updates.
Facebook started by launching their revamped Oculus Home. Home, which was a launchpad for Oculus Rift, now has social spaces for you to share with your family and friends. The performance has been improved with physics-based and dynamic lighting.
Also, it gives users the ability to import their 3D objects, models, and other skinned animations. And it has custom developer items to such as trophies, avatar clothing, sculptures, and objects.
Facebook’s Hybrid Apps
One of the biggest highlights is the hybrid app; Facebook states that it “brings the power of your PC into VR.” The new Oculus improvements have a new software development kit, new APIs, and Dash – which is a digital dashboard that allows you to access your computer’s desktop via Rift.
This helps developers load up their traditional 2D applications on VR. The first group to support this was Allegorithmic Labs, who planned to adopt the Substance Painter to the Rift.
Hybrid Mobile Development vs. Native Mobile Development
When creating a hybrid mobile development team, you have to know how the team operates. While you can opt for a native development team, chances are you’ll do better if you try out the hybrid team for a change. And here are some reasons why:
Enhanced User Experience
As soon as you have a phone in your hands, you should check for apps that you can install on your phone. But as our human tendency, if the app doesn’t work to the user’s expectation or doesn’t have any further use, you should decide to install and uninstall the app.
Hybrid mobile development companies are looking for ways to end this cycle of installing and uninstalling apps. UI elements that have features such as untroubled scrolling, gesture recognition, and quantum development for effects and animation, native apps where these features are exposed and highlighted.
- Hybrid apps cost less than native apps. They are of high cost.
- Native apps deliver a higher level of performance where hybrid apps have a moderate performance.
- Native apps have a platform-specific UI, but hybrid apps have a common UI for all platforms.
Hybrid apps are easier to update and maintain web technologies. However, this is not usually seen with Native apps. Native apps require the user to maintain the code bases. Most users don’t upgrade their systems and will continue to work on previous versions of their operating system.
Because of this Native app developers have to see that their upgraded apps are compatible with both the old and new versions.
In the end, you have to care about your hybrid mobile development team. By doing so, you can give them the encouragement needed to complete your apps in a timely manner. Thus, take the time knowing hybrid mobile apps to ensure that your team can
