The mobile application development sector is growing by leaps and bounds, and as of now the concept behind developing an app, imagination is limitless. We are in the last quarter of 2018, and the app economy has received a phenomenal response, with several trends redefining the digital landscape. Technology is brimming with innovations, the application of which will take your business to new heights.
Applications have taken off in a big way unfolding on many fronts. Now when we are talking about writing software for small, wireless devices- a set of processes and procedures must be adhered to and that’s what an application is all about. Long days, even longer nights and investment of accounted money are behind you when you are developing an app, be it for iOS or Android. And all you have to do is wait for a long run hoping that one day your app will be a major hit across the globe. But the table has turned these days;development procedures have almost become a cakewalk- thanks to all the emerging unprecedented innovations. Above all, you don’t require to be a certified developerto come up with an interesting app all you require doing is pick a relevant framework and you are on!
A framework is a software library that lays the platform for the development of the app. In simple words, it is the stepping stone or the foundation on which the app settles. Further below I would like to mention a list of top Android frameworks that can get you an app under your belt without much hassle.
3. Corona SDK-
Created in 2009, Corona SDK is another framework used to build apps for iOS, Android, MacOS, tvOS, Android TV, and Kindle Fire. When compared with other frameworks, this one, in particular, speeds up the development process real fast. In addition to this, you can also update your code, save the changes, and instantly see the results in our instant-update Simulator. Numerous plugins, Lua-base framework, is lightweight and fast, develop apps for multiple platforms with just one code base are key benefits of Corona SDK. And the most important of all the apps are automatically compiled at build time, streamlined for performance and stability because of its competency to perform at every core level.
4. JQuery Mobile-
This one is my favorite. The touch-optimized framework was initially developed to create a framework that gels well with a myriad of smartphones and tablet computers. As a result, it turns out that apart from smartphones and tablets the framework is compatible with other frameworks such as PhoneGap and Worklight. It features a lightweight code which is built with progressive enhancement, coupled with easily themeable design empowering professional to create custom theme based applications for Android, iOS, Blackberry, WebOS, and Symbian operating systems. Built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation, Jquery offers Ajax navigation with page transitions, touch events, and various widgets.
The free and open-source framework is licensed under the MIT license. Right from the whole library of components to gestures, and tools, Iconic offers everything. It allows you to develop progressive web and native apps for every major app store — all with a single codebase. Due to LiveDeploy, the developer can deliver code updates, A/B test, content changes, and space to fix bugs before and after the app is developed. Performance and optimization are what Iconic is all about. So are you ready to build high-fidelity apps in no time?
The cross-platform app creator allows its users to create apps for Android, iPhone, iPad and HTML Web apps with no coding knowledge or need. The framework, under the label of White label apps development, might seem more comfortable and effective to use but has various limitations when it comes to beat the present day Native apps.
Irrespective of which framework you choose, I am betting on no particular order. Cross-platform frameworks are extremely volatile, agree? Their fundamental purpose is to help you rapidly turn a vague idea into a well- functioning app, a polished product. At the end of the day, all that matters is how you accomplish this goal whether its by using the latest state-of-the-art framework that everyone talks about or by using an established framework that is starting to collect dust.
