Hybrid apps are prtty decent, but fall apart as the complexity grows. I'm working on integrating custom native video players into a hybrid app. It's not hard to extend features to your javascript SDK, but there is overhead and complexity communicating and syncing state with your javascript runtime, where you'd prefer most of the code to be. Native apps with webviews sprinkled here and there are great, but when native code sits as a second class citizen to html/js (like phonegap), it's a nightmare.
