What competitive app developers do is create something that is going to be usable for many years to come. I mean, who doesn’t want to create their own brand that people will love, right? In order for you to develop an mobile application company, you must use a development framework. And, there are plenty of them out there, making it hard for you to choose the best ones. Fortunately for you, I have narrowed down the selection to just 4 development frameworks that you should consider using in 2018. Let’s start with…
1. Framework 7
Let’s kick things off with a rather simple yet intuitive framework to use. The aptly named Framework 7 utilizes HTML, CSS, and Java to create an application. The best thing that I can say about this is that it doesn’t require external dependencies, which means that you can easily start creating an app without having to download more resources. In other words, everything is set up right out of the box. That being said, this framework lets you code on an intuitive and really nice interface. It allows you to include attention-grabbing animations and the best part is that you do not need to put convoluted lines of code for things to work. If you’re looking for an easy solution when it comes to app development, complete with a nice interface, then you should definitely check this out.
2. Native Script
Another great app development framework you could use is Native Script. This framework allows you to add functions to your application with the use of Java- a popular programming language. However, the biggest downside to using this framework is that you will need to have anextensive knowledge of Java in order for you to fully utilize what it gives. I would still recommend this, though, because once you’ve properly used the lines of code needed for an app to work, all of those can be implemented for use in all of the mobile operating systems (this being the Windows platform, Android, and iOS).
3. React Native
This framework is mainly used by developers to create Native apps; which is sadly one of its downsides. You see, the aforementioned frameworks allow you to code for applications simultaneously, regardless of what platform it is. However, with React Native, you can only work on an app one at a time which can, well, take a long time for you if you want to create an application with cross-platform support. Still, with its built-in libraries, React Native is still a good choice for app developers to use.
4. jQuery Mobile
This framework is suitable for use on personal and business applications. One of the oldest ones out there, the jQuery Mobile allows you to create mobile apps with seamless integration with the world’s well-known browsers. If you want to integrate both your website and your application, then you definitely have to choose jQuery Mobile.
There are plenty of tools you can use to develop an app. The good thing is that the ones that are on this list are pretty easy to get and utilize. Prior knowledge of the popular programming languages is a must, though. But if you already know it, creating an app is like a dream using any of the above mentioned frameworks.
