21 Nov Star Knowledge Guide: Choosing the Latest Mobile App Development Frameworks
21 NOV 2017
The mobile app framework is the base of your future application, making the right choice is of utmost importance. With rising demand and popularity of apps, mobile app development companies are striving to enhance the user experience by opting for the latest technology in app development. However, there are some factors you should consider. A framework is not a narrow-specialized programming solution; it is able to deal with a wide range of problems, but it also can increase the size of an app.
There are three major frameworks for mobile app development: Native, Web and Hybrid. Depending on where you want to take the app, here is what you should know about each framework.
There are 3 types of apps:
- Native apps for iOS on Objective-C or Swift, Android on Java, Windows Phone on Net
- Hybrid apps for all platforms altogether with Xamarin, React Native, Ionic, Angular Mobile Sencha Touch etc.
- Web apps as responsive versions of websites to work on any mobile device.
In this post, let us dive into a list of useful frameworks to help you build great and amazing mobile applications.
Xamarin helps you develop native apps for multiple platforms using a shared C# codebase. With Xamarin, you can do anything in C# that you can build in Objective-C, Swift or Java unlike what is commonly believed. It helps you use the same IDE, language, and APIs everywhere.
The main purpose of this framework is to build native apps, instead of developing hybrid apps which run in a web-view. You can build a high-performance mobile app that is indistinguishable from one that is built using Swift/Objective-C or Java. The latest version of this framework also has support for Android, so now you can also have real cross-platform apps.
Mobile Angular UI
Ionic Framework is a 100% free and completely open-source SDK for hybrid mobile app development. Built on top of Angular.js and Apache Cordova, Ionic provides tools and services for developing hybrid mobile apps using Web technologies like CSS, HTML5, and Sass. You can use over 120 native device features like Bluetooth, Finger Print Auth, and more with Cordova/PhoneGap plugins and TypeScript extensions.
