10 Best Hybrid Mobile App UI Frameworks: HTML5, CSS and JS

Native developers love working with native code but that doesn’t always go well with the business case or result in effective use of effort and time. We often see scenarios where developers end up building same mobile app for android, iOS, windows and other mobile platforms using native APIs and libraries of individual platform.

HTML5 mobile UI frameworks like Ionic let you create cross platform hybrid mobile apps with native look and feel by using the technology that you already know i.e. HTM5, CSS and JavaScript. Whether you are a web developer planning to pitch into mobile apps development, or an experienced native apps developer, hybrid mobile apps development is the easiest way to start building cross platform mobile apps. You do not need to learn anything more than what you already know and yet create enterprise grade mobile applications.

The biggest reason for hybrid apps growth is that you write the hybrid mobile app once and run it on every platform without putting in any extra efforts. You design the app as a regular web app, a responsive web app that fits different screen sizes by using the components provided by mobile HTML5 UI frameworks. The access to native hardware components like Camera or accelerometer is achieved by native JavaScript APIs like the ones that Cordova (PhoneGap) offers. Your app is then compiled into platform specific native packages, ready to be deployed on your mobile device or on app stores.

Over the last few weeks, I have been busy evaluating the HTML5 mobile UI/UX frameworks. There are way too many frameworks out there now so i decided to cover the best of mobile app frameworks available in the market as of today.
