Well if a mobile app developer has the knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS and is developing an application for both the platforms like Android & iOS then they can use frameworks which are available online. All a developer need is to write the code in the programming language preferred by the developer and then integrate the code with the framework and can provide the application a hybrid platform through which an app runs on multiple platforms.

The mobile application industry these days is going through different phases these days when the selection for different mobile frameworks for developers is quite pivotal.

Let’s have a look at some popular mobile application development framework that could become a tool for the developers in 2019.

In ionic App development, this framework uses Angular JS to develop app structure and other features. And the best thing is it makes the use of the syntax extending of HTML for including the elements of the app and data binding at the same time.
  • One Code Base: Ionic 4 framework uses only a single codebase. It means it enables to develop responsive and intuitive apps for all kinds of portable devices. One of the best things is when you build an app on this framework it will work smoothly on any mobile devices.
  • Open Source: It is an open-source Mobile app development frameworks. Where developers can use to develop an enterprise application without any pay or get any license.

Cordova Framework

Cordova Framework which is also called as Phone Gap is a platform to build a native mobile application using HTML5, CSS & JavaScript. It acts as a container for running a web application written in CSS, JS, & HTML. A web application can’t achieve the native device functionality which involves Camera, Accelerometer, Contacts, etc. with Cordova we can achieve this. Also, with this, we can package the web application in the package installer format.
