what is a hybrid app?

I'm trying to figure out what constitutes a hybrid app. I gather it involves using plugins that access native mobile device services. Is that correct?

I'm using the barcode scanner plugin. Does that make my app a hybrid app?

Further, if I choose to download my code and finish the development using, for example, xCode, will the barcode scanner be included in my code?

Thanks for your help!
