Best tool for quicker mobile application development

Reviewed 8 months ago

we have developed 2-3 application for the inhouse employees such as for Sales People, Management People for their day to day activities. Overall experience is very good. Saved lots of $ by developing application in Ionic.

Pros

1. Feel like a native application is one of the key feature Ionic is having. 2. Its feature to code once and deploy multiple times is very useful and saves lots of efforts in terms of money and time. 3. Ready made templates are available

Cons

1. Customize application development is little bit challenge sometimes when you need to build customized controls. 2. Continuous updates are required as new version of ionic and angular is coming very frequently.

web/mobile app development just needs Ionic

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

you can reuse your web development skills to build mobile and web apps. Basically, apps that run everywhere and are very relevant.

Cons

perhaps the docs with the APIs for the components could be better explained, I always feel there is a gap between what the docs say and how I write the code in my apps.

Ionic- A Hybrid app development framework

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

I have used Angular based Ionic framework to develop and release my app in Android play store and iOS app store. Ionic with its libraries and packages and build process has made this very easy to develop.

Cons

App is a hybrid app. It offers near native experience but not exactly native.

Multiplatform Mobile Development

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall I like Ionic. The fact that you can have one code base for multiple platforms is definitely a benefit. Plus when you develop your changes are reflected real time in the browser which is great for UI development.

Pros

The best thing about the Ionic framework is the ability to write for multiple platforms with a familiar project structure. You can initialize your project as an Angular or React project and write code as if you are writing for a web app. With one code base you can deploy to ios and Android. Write an app once and reach any audience.

Cons

What I like least is that the framework automatically puts in a lot of permissions when you use certain components. Once you deploy to a platform, you can remove the permission that aren't being used; however, it's an extra step.
