Difference Between Hybrid app and Native app
I'm new to SAP Mobility, and I have just started exploring about it. I know you can develop apps in different ways using SUP. Now I read at many places that Hybrid App's cannot be a complete offline App at the same time it is stated that they can do synchronization by storing events in a queue.
Can some one tell me what this means? What is a complete offline app? why cant it be build as a Hybrid app?
Thanks and Regards,

Check this thread Native App vs Hybrid App.
HWC applications are meant only for developing small scale applications(like approval scenarios) so they cannot be a complete offline app.
where Native applications are meant for Large scale applications.
SUP 2.2 version allows us to store data on device cache in HWC apps as shown in blog
