• The Top 4 UI Frameworks to Build Hybrid Apps

      The App Market is going berserk right now. With every Tom, Dick and Harry developing an App out there, it takes skill to come up with a great App. And while you’re at it, we wouldn’t want you to spend time looking around for a suitable UI Framework.


      So, for your best interests, we list out here the 4 best UI frameworks for building hybrid apps. If this is your first time, congratulations and welcome to the world of hybrid apps. A hybrid app is in reality a mobile optimized website that is written in CSS, JavaScript and HTML running on web-view.

      So, by writing a single application, you can have it run on Android, iOS and Windows – mostly unmodified.

      1. jQuery Mobile

      A senior among the various mobile frameworks in the market today, jQuery Mobile is your best fit if you are trying to create an app with the widest possible reach. Apps built on this platform work and sync equally well across literally all mobile browsers. And this includes Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Phone versions. Super lightweight and easy to learn, it depends solely on jQuery and offers great support. While the PhoneGap/Cordova builder is not included, it is supported.

      2. Framework 7

      Quite literally, the coolest kid on the block, Framework 7 is what is referred to in tech lingo, completely framework agnostic. It has zero external dependencies but can still pull off stunts such as making apps look and feel absolutely native, earmarked with well styled animation and components. If you understand HTML, CSS and JavaScript, using Framework 7, you can create an app without complicated coding. Again, Cordova or PhoneGap is supported though not build in. Framework 7 doesn’t include any tools for emulation or app packaging so you will need to combine it with Cordova or PhoneGap.

      3. Onsen UI

      The Onsen UI is quite the superstar among UIs. It is open source, allows developers to mix and match native looking components to build apps, quite simple to use, offers superb documentation and can work with or without AngularJS. You can go through a series of examples and layouts for common app structures. Lookout for the Material Design support in the next version.

      4. Ionic

      The first choice among most developers. We have put it at the end of the list, saving the best for the last. Pair it with AngularJS and you will have sheer magic on your finger tips. You can even use the CSS portion to create native looking designs. Use the command-line interface and get thrilled with the integrated emulators and much much more!
