Title: Best Mobile App Development Frameworks for 2022

Best Mobile App Development Frameworks for 2022
Walter White once said that there are always two
sides to every story. Well, the same seems to be
the case for the past two years. The last two
years have been both prosperous and a bit
challenging to handle. People confined to their
homes with little, or no social activities was
nothing less than an opportunity for mobile apps
and online
2 business to flourish. There was a significant
increase in the number of mobile apps centred on
the individuals needs. Being on the verge of
ending 2021 and the beginning of the new year
2022, with over 5,000,000 apps in the Google
Play Store and Apple App Store combined, we
cannot underestimate the potential of mobile app
development for businesses and the opportunities
for any ambitious mobile app development company
to attract the target audience and gain
monetization benefits from the apps they
develop. With that said, its no news that
enterprises with an established mobile app or
those looking to create a new mobile phone app
would require in-depth study, comprehensive
planning, and analysis for the current mobile
environment to flourish in todays exceedingly
aggressive digital market. Though you might
already have some knowledge about several mobile
app development frameworks but to help choose
one, we are going to discuss a few! Ready to
read? Lets Begin!
3 1. React Native Framework Do you know Facebook
is the company behind both ReactJS and React
Native? When Facebook was struggling to maintain
its separate iOS Android app, React Native
made the process of maintaining and scaling both
their apps. Interesting, isnt it? React Native
is one of the most preferred mobile app
development frameworks. Utilized by mobile app
industry experts, react a cross-platform app
library embedded with JavaScript codes assist in
building highly responsive and scalable apps with
React library as a component source. React
Native enables a developer to code an app once
in JavaScript and then deploy it both to Android
and iOS, intending to reduce the effort of
writing separate codes for Android iOS from
scratch. Why use React Native? ? Being a
cross-platform Framework, Reach Native helps in
building both iOS Android Apps ? Offers
several open-source libraries of pre-built
components that speed up the development
process. ? Working with React Native doesnt
require any particular language expertise, one
that knows Java can efficiently develop a react
native app. ? The creators of React Native
continuously improve the framework, thus making
it one of the most advanced and tech competent
app development frameworks.
4 ? Its an open-source, community-driven
framework with widely available online
support. What should you watch out for when
using React Native? ? Performance Issues
Planning on building an application with numerous
tabs, navigations, animations or third-party
libraries can be a tedious task with React
Native. It degrades the apps performance and
makes it slow compared to other hybrid
apps. ? Updating UI is a hectic task While
deploying the app, React native offloads
all complex functions to the Javascript initial
thread, which directly leads to a delay in
updating the apps UI. The app stops responding
to user inputs, and ultimately performance starts
lagging. ? OS Specific Limitations While
working with React Native, one of the
most noticed drawbacks is that some of the React
Native libraries and third-party libraries have
platform-specific limitations. Examples of apps
built on react Native Two renowned apps that are
built using React Native are Facebook
Instagram. 2. NativeScript Framework Another
framework that you should know is NativeScript,
an open-source framework used to build apps for
both Android and iOS devices. NativeScript uses
JavaScript and CSS to render the UIs and ensure
a native-like app experience. NativeScript
enables the
5 development of three kinds NativeScript Core,
Angular, and VueJS to pave the way for the
fastest transition from prototype to the final
product. Why use Native Script
Framework? ? NativeScript doesnt use any web
view to render the UI. So you get Native UI, and
therefore better performance when compared to
things like ionic or phone gap. ? It is swift to
get started using NativeScript as it saves Costs
is comparatively easy to adopt by newbies who
know JAVA. ? Deep integration with popular
JavaScript frameworks like Angular or Vue to
minimize the learning curve ? NativeScript has an
extensive repository of plugins to boost the app
development speed. ? Provides a way to split
custom content, including CSS styles, into
separate files per target platform, enabling the
creation of an app with Intuitive UI and a better
user experience. What should you watch out for
when using NativeScript Framework? ? Documentation
Clarity The documentation is not always
accurate due to the many different ways you can
write NativeScript apps (Vanilla JS, TypeScript,
Angular, Vue, Webpack). ? Missing UI Library
There are no ready-made UI collections, so
applications have to be built using the default
UI elements and then styled manually.
6 ? App Size can be a problem NativeScript
includes having a larger app size than native. To
escape this when building the APK/IPA, one should
run WebPack to reduce the size of the
application. Examples of apps built on
NativeScript App industry leaders such as
Workbox, Strudel, BitPoints Wallet are the top
models of Native Script framework users. 3.
JQuery Framework Developed by the jQuery project
team in 2010 and written in JavaScript,
another cross-platform mobile app development
framework used by app developers across the
globe is JQuery Framework. Compatible with all
the latest mobiles, desktop, and tablet screens
of iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows, etc., this
particular framework can ease the development of
highly functional and complex applications using
the features of both jQuery and jQuery UI. Why
JQuery Framework? ? Provides a vast library of UI
components to customize the look of any app ? It
is cross-platform and cross-browser
compatible ? jQuery minimizes the code writing
process and is less complicated to use ? It
offers a lot of plugins to optimize apps and
websites for SEO ? The overall size of the JQuery
Mobile framework is relatively small
7 What should you watch out for when using JQuery
Framework? ? Time-Consuming Combining jQuery
mobile with other mobile app development
frameworks is exceptionally time-consuming and
leads to speed lag in the applications. ? Limited
capabilities Compared to native mobile
applications, JQuery apps are bound with
Framework limitations refraining the users from
leveraging the app features to the
fullest. ? Major Anchor Issues jQuery Mobile
uses Ajax to navigate through pages, leading to
some significant anchor issues while using it for
mobile app development. ? Appearance jQuery
mobile applications arent as impressive as
Native apps. JQuery apps are poor in their visual
appearance and might not function in the same
way as native apps do. Examples of apps built
on JQuery Framework Slideshare, Dodge, Disney
world, WordPress, Google, IBM are the users of
this platform.
4. Meteor Framework Meteor or MeteorJS is another
popular open-source JavaScript mobile
app development framework written in Node.js.
MeteorJS assists in creating cross-platform
mobile applications for Web, Android and iOS.
Mobile app development using Meteor provides
access to competent libraries that turn the
prototyping of challenging
8 applications into an impressive mobile
application by enabling only one language
JavaScript for implementing the front-end,
backend, and database. Meteor as a mobile app
development framework offers a lot out of the box
compared to others and is more like an ecosystem
than a simple framework. Why use Meteor
Framework? ? Single-line code runs on both
front-end and backend to do things differently
with optimistic UI updates. ? Highly efficient,
productive and Easier to Learn framework ? It
offers the facility of deploying and experiencing
Real-Time Applications by Default ? Extensive
support from the online community. What should
you watch out for when using Meteor
Framework? ? Pre-built packages While using
Meteor Framework, developers have to rely on
pre-built packages, which sometimes can conflict
with one another extensively. ? Competence You
cant make a mobile web app run as efficiently as
with Native. ? Lack of control over loading
files Meteor disorganizes the sequence files
sometimes while uploading. Examples of apps
built on Meteor Framework
9 Pintask, Telescope, Reaction Commerce, Wishpool
are the users of Meteor Framework. 5. Xamarin
Framework Another top-rated open-source mobile
app development framework Xamarian, has
various libraries that allow engineers to code
once and use the product across different
operating systems (OS). Compatible for all
platforms, be it macOS, Windows, tvOS, watchOS,
or iOS, this framework is ideal for developing
mobile applications. The only condition to work
exception is for .NET, as for .NET Xamarin
framework needs to be combined with Microsofts
IDE and Visual Studio. Why Xamarin
Framework? ? Can run a single codebase across
multiple platforms saving both valuable time and
money. ? Being natively compiled, it is a go-to
option for developing new-generation apps that
look and feel native. ? Robust, scalable stable
solution without compromising on cost. ? Enables
testing of apps in the Xamarin Test Cloud ? It
offers an incredible collection of UI controls,
themes, charts, graphs, cloud services. What
should you watch out for when using Xamarin
10 ? Time-consuming UI Development It is often
hard to create a portable version of the apps
core UI using Xamarin Framework. ? App File Size
use of Xamarins core libraries and
functionality burdens the app stores with
unjustifiable app file size. ? Lack of community
support Xamarin, a new framework, lacks the
online support community compared to other
well-established online communities of app
development frameworks. ? Sharing Code is
Difficult While developing mobile apps using
the Xamarin framework, developers cant share
codes with other developers or teams using only
Swift, Java and Objective CA code written using
C and Xamarin. Examples of apps built on
Xamarin Framework Captio, CA Mobile, The World
Bank, Fareboom, APX, MRW are the top Xamarin
Mobile Apps built to serve different business
models. 6. Flutter framework Did you know,
according to Statista, Flutter is the second most
popular cross-platform mobile app framework by
developers worldwide? Flutter Googles free
and open-source UI framework is the best
framework for developing mobile applications for
Android, iOS, or both devices. It uses the
programming language Dart and incorporates
Material Design and Cupertino widgets.
11 The primary reason behind Flutter becoming one
of the most preferred Frameworks is its single
codebase that contains widgets, a rendering
engine, debugging and integrating APIs, and
resources to assist developers in creating and
deploying robust cross-platform mobile
applications. Why use Flutter Framework? ? Offers
incredibly customizable ready-made widgets for
fast UI coding ? It is portable and
platform-agnostic that saves both time and
resources. ? Backed up by Google, Flutter apps
work smoothly and fast, without hanging and
cutting while scrolling. ? The hot reload feature
of the framework elevates programmers
productivity, helps with quick iterations and
allows you to experiment without long
delays. What should you watch out for when
using Flutter Framework? ? App Size Flutter
apps are generally deployed into larger file
sizes than other app framework file
sizes. ? Support Libraries Googles support
for Flutter is commendable but still isnt as
productive compared to other Native
frameworks. ? Limited Capabilities Being a
comparatively new mobile app development
framework, there might be a few tools or
functionalities missing that one might encounter.
It will take some time to create tools and expand
functionality. Examples of apps built on
Flutter Framework
12 Alibaba, Cryptograph, Google Ads, Reflectly
are some fantastic apps built with Flutter
Framework 7. Ionic Framework Created in 2013,
Ionic is another open-source mobile application
framework based on Angular and Apache Cordova
that assists web developers in building robust
and feature-rich iOS, Android, and Progressive
Web Apps with one shared codebase centred at
modern web standards. The Ionic Framework
facilitates access to every single native API on
each platform. It can do anything a traditional
native app can do with the integration of UI
elements like list views, filters, forms, action
sheets, navigation menus, etc. Why Ionic
Framework? ? Ionic is platform-independent, thus
can perform amazingly on any OS iOS, Android,
Windows irrespective of the programming
language. ? Once the code is written for any
functionality, it can be utilized across all the
other platforms. ? Strong developers community
to help cater to any query about the app
development framework. ? Complete control over
app building and deployment. ? Equipped with an
entire suite of tools, with native compatibility
13 What should you watch out for when using the
Ionic Framework? ? Performance A graphics-heavy
feature-loaded mobile app might have significant
performance issues when built with Ionic. Ionic
is used to construct a single codebase for all
other platforms, resulting in slow performance
compared to native apps. ? Debugging Debugging
an app built with Ionic can be challenging and
time-consuming. ? Security Security might be
one of the major cons of the Ionic
framework-built apps compared to native app
security solutions. ? Not Suitable for Gaming
apps Examples of apps built on Ionic
Framework Among the brands that have used Ionic
for app development are Nationwide, Amtrak,
NASA, Sworkit, Untappd, Dow Jones MarketWatch,
and McDonalds. Wrapping It Up! With that read,
