August 06 2019 0 Comment

In mobile app development, native apps take more time and the source code is different for each platform. Building native apps for each platform can be time consuming and costly. That is why many companies choose to have their app build in a hybrid platform.  For doing the needful, there are several hybrid app development frameworks to choose from. Generally speaking, the type of framework to select depends on the kind of app you want to make. 

Let’s discuss about the most commonly used hybrid app development frameworks: 

1. Ionic — Open-Source HTML5 Development Framework 

Ionic is an open-source platform which provides cross-platform mobile application development. Mobile app developers love it! The significant advantage of the Ionic framework is that mobile developers can use a set of default UI elements like forms, filters, action sheets, list views, tab bars, and navigation menu in their design. Thus, it helps them to focus on developing apps instead of concentrating on UI elements. Moreover, if the developers are familiar with CSS, JavaScript, or HTML, then using the Ionic framework becomes much more manageable. 


2. PhoneGap — A Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Framework 

It is also called Apache Cordova that lets mobile programmers develop a mobile application which is installed as a native app across multiple devices. It is one of the widely used technology as a single code base can be used for creating multiple versions of an app. Another big advantage of using PhoneGap is that it supports inbuilt device features like GPS, Camera, Phonebook, Storage, accelerometer and much more. 


3. Xamarin — A Coder’s Delight, Top-Notch Cross-Platform Tool 

Xamarin is an intelligent way to build an app, developers can use C# for Android, iOS, and Universal for Windows apps. It is one of the reliable tools that provide flexible native performance. Backed with Microsoft technology, it has approx. 1.4 million developers of the community. With an excellent native user interface, it not only helps developers to build a native app with ease but also controls the app to give ultimate user experience. 


4. React Native — A Preferred Cross-Platform Solution for iOS and Android App Development 

From Startups to Fortune 500 organizations, React Native is one of the popular frameworks in 2019–20 which is used to build both Android and iOS apps. React Native development allows mobile app developers to build high-performance apps in shorter development cycles and faster deployment times. 

5. jQuery Mobile — Concise Cross-Browser JavaScript Framework 

jQuery is a ready-to-use JavaScript library having various plugins like Image Slider, Content Slider, and Pop-Up Boxes, etc. The jQuery is easier than JavaScript libraries, as less code is written to attain the same features in comparison to other libraries. It makes web pages simpler, interactive and user-friendly. It is completely readable by all search engines and is optimized in terms of SEO. 

6. Appcelerator Titanium — #1 Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Solution
