Yes! We are the best and newest!
You are right, we are discussing the Ionic framework, which has taken the mobile application development space by storm. The Ionic Framework, with a gamut of high-quality web and native app components, help build highly interactive native and hybrid web apps.
Must-Have Features of Ionic Mobile App Development Framework
Free and Open Source
Ionic Framework is available for free and its open source approach further attracts developers. It has been licensed under MIT, with a promise to the developer community to remain free for use always.
The platform helps build progressive web and native mobile apps. It can be put on any major app store. The aesthetics of the Ionic Framework makes every app look beautiful.
Premier Native Plug-ins
This platform is capable of using more than 120 native device features such as HealthKit, Bluetooth Finger, Print Auth, Cordova/PhoneGap plugins and TypeScript extensions.
The documentation is elaborate. It includes real app examples, component demos, user guides and suggestions to help the app run faster.
Benefits to Look Out For
Keen Focus to Maximize Performance
Ionic Framework ensures that the app runs with proper speed. It’s efficient hardware accelerated transitions and touch-optimized gestures make this possible. It is just to impress the users.
The framework is precise, simple and high performance oriented. Developing an app with the Ionic framework makes the app look beautiful on all mobile devices and platforms. The components are in-built. Additionally, there is a gorgeous beautiful yet extensible base theme that can be easily adapted to every platform. Thus, build the app in style.
Native and web optimized
Ionic imitates native app UI guidelines and employs the native SDKs to build an app. it uses Cordova or PhoneGap for native deployment. It also runs in the browser as a Progressive Web App.
Building Blocks of Ionic Framework
Components are an integral part of Ionic apps, commonly viewed as building blocks. These components help in prompt creation of an interface for your app. The common components of the Ionic Framework include modals, pop-ups, and cards. You can even customize each of these components to derive better results.
- Action Sheets: Action Sheets tend to glide up from the corner edge of the mobile device screen and the user can view a range of options, indicating its ability to confirm or cancel an action. These Action Sheets are also viewed as a substitute to menus, but beware that they must not be used for navigation.
- Alerts: Alerts does a stupendous job in offering the user the capacity to select an explicit action or even a list of actions. Alerts also give useful information to the user and even help them to make a decision (or even multiple decisions).
- Badges: Badges are relatively smaller components in the Ionic Framework. It typically communicates a numerical value to the user, which are used within an item.
- Cards: Cards bear important pieces of content, and are being increasingly used as a core design pattern for apps these days. It helps to hold the information correctly and also organize them in a proper manner. Cards also set up predictable expectations for the user, a characteristic which is difficult to find. Cards have become the preferred design pattern for many companies across companies such as Google, Twitter, and Spotify.
In a short span, the Ionic Framework has gathered huge momentum. Currently, there are millions of Ionic developers globally. Such mobile application development platforms will soon rule the digital world and drive growth.
