The biggest problem faced by businesses while making a smartphone application is the high cost of building a native application across different platforms. Therefore various expert front-end developers have tweaked into the development of several hybrid applications that promise to help address this issue using, Ionic Framework.
Hybrid apps have several benefits over pure native apps, precisely in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code. Moreover the Hybrid apps could be built without having to learn the native programming languages like Objective-C, Java, etc.
Two-way data binding, interaction with backend services and APIs make AngularJS a mobile developer’s common choice. By the upcoming release of AngularJS 2.0, focused on mobile, it’s sure to gain even more popularity.
Ionic provides you with a UI framework that imitates the native UI. This means that you don’t have to worry about implementing a native-like UI and debugging all the quirks between web view implementations on different platforms. Ionic presently supports Windows 10, iOS 8 and above and Android 4.1 and above.
In a nutshell Ionic Framework consists of 3 main components:
2.Ionic is UI framework based on SASS, build and improved for mobile UIs.
Being a free and open source app development framework Ionic offers various amazing features and functionality and some of which are enumerated below:
For any mobile application speed is very important. Ionic is built to behave and perform great on the latest mobile devices. It makes mobile apps to run very fast and smooth on every mobile device.
The combination is very powerful. Ionic uses Angular for developing rich and robust applications.
Because of the fact that Ionic is based on popular native mobile development SDK, it is easy to understand by developers who have already built native apps for Android and iOS.
Simple, clean and practical. Ionic is designed to display and work perfectly on all current mobile devices. The presence of loads of popular mobile components, gorgeous themes, typography, interactive paradigms makes it a wonder technology for building apps.
Ionic framework is helpful in building best quality hybrid native apps and mobile web apps using open source web technologies. The same technology the people around the world has been using for decades to build mobile and tablet apps, desktop applications, and websites. The Ionic framework is obsessive about performance and great design, and work on multiple platforms without changing a thing.
Now it will become easier to create web apps using Ionic because team IONIC is planning to soon introduce an easier way to create IONIC apps with IONIC creator. The presence of drag and drop functionality will ease the process of app development.
