    If you can program hybrid apps well, it doesn't really make sense to use native unless you need extreme performance increases or you need your app to "feel" native. What I mean by that is that ios apps and android apps have different UI layouts and flows. If that doesn't matter, then just fo hybrid if you are confident in doing so.

    Are you a programmer? If not, you're already at a disadvantage.

    Let's be honest here. Hybrid = web page. This might be the easiest path for you: get a mobile web site built. Then wrapping that web site (with the help of a programmer) into native wrappers.

    They say, "Non-HTML5, native IOS application" but they don't capitalize iOS correctly so I'm highly skeptical about their technical aptitude and honesty.

    Native development will probably take longer, but the most important advantage is that you get complete control over what you're developing.

    I'm facing a similar dillema and i think i'll choose this path:
    1. Do the site for desktop (done)
    2. Make it responsive (in progress)
    3. Wrap it in a mobile app (near term future)

    This seems the easiest path and the one that will require the least amount of redesign to make it all consistent.
