The mobile apps nowadays come in different shapes and sizes. There is three most prominent type of app in the app stores that you come around often and they are native apps, web apps, and hybrid apps. All these apps are developed at a large scale by the developers and the app type that is getting the most attention these days are the hybrid apps. The hybrid apps are the apps that have the advantages of native apps as well as web apps. The hybrid apps are applications that can run on multiple platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows, etc without effort. And the main advantage of the hybrid app is that the application needs only one codebase with which the application can run on all platforms. But the development of hybrid apps requires cutting edge frameworks and tools to make it compatible with multiple platforms.
The hybrid app framework converts the HTML/JS/CSS codes into a native SDK format which allows the app to run on different platforms. Developers use these frameworks based on the usability and the needs of the application. There are many Mobile App Development Companies in India that are popular for providing superior hybrid app development solution that use frameworks to ensure a better quality of applications. Below given is a list of prominent frameworks that are used by such development companies.
Xamarin is yet another popular framework that is used by developers. It is developed and managed by Microsoft, therefore it is a lot faster and easier to implement. The Xamarin uses C# for coding purposes. It makes the use of common language infrastructure and common language specifications that allows the application to run on multiple platforms. As per a survey, Xamarin is used by over 1.4 million developers around the world. The apps build using these frameworks provide native experience and are rated well in regards to the performance.
The ionic framework is totally open-source SDK for hybrid app development. It has roots in Angular.JS and Apache Cordova that serves as the perfect tool for development. In basic it uses CSS, HTML, and Sass which are the also the tools for developing websites, therefore, it is easy to learn and implement. Ionic performs well with predefined components in the codes. It is also compatible with Cordova-based application packages making it faster to code. Hence Ionic is gaining prominence in the hybrid app development sector.
There are many other frameworks that can also be used for hybrid app development, but the frameworks that are given above are some of the best frameworks that are widely used by many development companies around the world. Different frameworks have different concepts of working that the developer should understand. Therefore the framework that you choose should be based on the usability and the needs of your application.
