Ionic Framework for app development

Ionic framework has been in the talking for mobile application development solutions for quite a long time and has been a blessing for phonegap developers. I personally am a huge fan of Ionic framework for a lot of reasons. Lets break them down one by one.

Ionic is an open source

One of the major benefits of Ionic framework is that it is open source, free to use. A framework, so powerful, that is on top of cordova being available for free to use is a big deal. Good thing is that even though it is free, ionic has never had issues with stability.

Ionic is easy to use

Main development base of ionic is HTML, CSS and javascript which is familiar to almost all the developers. This web approach helps the developer to learn ionic easily and create UI effortlessly. One more good thing about ionic is that you simplistically have to code once and run for all mobile devices. So basically its just one programming language for all mobile Oses.

Ionic is built above Angular

Angular is one of the most powerful frameworks used today and ionic is build on top of angular. Angular by default is embedded in ionic which is great because you can also talk to angular communities in case there are issues in developing app using ionic framework. If developers is familiar with angular, then working with ionic will be a cakewalk.

Ionic has a great UI

Ionic takes care of default major design elements, follows major guidelines which means apps have a their own look & feel on the basis of platform they are running. There are many elements that are pre-designed fantastically well and all set to use which becomes easy for the developers to use. It is smooth and responsive too.

Few disadvantages

Ionic is not the right choice for building heavy apps like 3D or video games or big video manupulations. There are not plugins available readily for everything. You will have to do programming to build something specific. Ionic is difficult to use when your code is heavily dependent on third party apps.

Overall, ionic is a great framework to use. Depending on your requirements, you would like to combine two or more frameworks or can even compose your own framework. If you are looking for a mobile app development company to discuss about your requirement, contact us at info@solutionanalysts.com.
