There are n number of frameworks available for designing User Interface(UI) to develop hybrid mobile applications. These frameworks offer a collection of mobile-optimized elements of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as tools for developing highly interactive applications.

When it comes to the development of a hybrid mobile application, smooth User Experience(UX) with flexible transformation and quick response is very important. It is considered that the single-page applications are help to deliver smooth interactions. Hence, AngularJS is a good choice for mobile application development.

There are many UI frameworks that are designed on top of AngularJS. These frameworks deliver good methods for developers to design effective UI/UX designs for hybrid mobile applications. Below are some UI frameworks which are a top choice for many mobile application developers.

Ionic

The Ionic is an HTML5 application framework that comes with native-styled mobile UI components. Even though Ionic is a new framework, it's becoming a very trendy framework with a fast-growing group of developers. Ionic app development framework includes documented markup CSS as well as JavaScript design patterns to develop apps with similar concepts to iOS and Android.

Ionic offers a collection of well designed UI elements, animations, and layout. These factors are very crucial for the easy and rapid hybrid applications development.

Apart from this, Ionic enable developers for minimal Data Object Model(DOM) manipulations and quick hardware transformation for faster working of mobile applications. Ionic is equipped with Software as a Service(SaaS) as well as Apache Cordova features which allow easy customizations and integration of UI with native services of devices.

Except for all the powerful integral features like a infinite scroll and pull-to-refresh, Ionic offers robust Command-Line Interface(CLI) that takes hybrid app development to a new level. CLI allows developers to design, test, and install the application onto any platform.

Ionic Lab feature that allows developing and testing Android and iOS versions side-by-side. Whenever there is a change in the source code, a LiveReload feature quickly updates application every time, even if the application is running on a mobile device. Hence, developers do not need to reprogram the source code for a specific platform every time.

The Ionic framework provides a great documentation and an icon library which features over 400 icons. Besides this, the Ionic team have built the Ionic View application that allows allotting the application to testers and developers instead of to go through app stores.

The Ionic lets developers design hybrid mobile applications with simple drag-and-drop components. The Ionic framework has recently revealed the Ionic Push service, which enables Ionic applications to send native push notifications to devices on any platform.

There are still more features that Ionic framework provides to the developers. Ionic Analytics provides insights into your application while Ionic Deploy allows developers to update and test application while coding it. And finally Ionic Market is a marketplace for add-ons, themes, and plugins.

Famo.us


Famo.us framework uses a different method for developing mobile applications as it completely focuses on the rendering engine of the browser. Because by coding typical HTML/CSS, developers have to create class in Javascript objects. This causes a lot of redundancy in event processing because DOM management is heavy in terms of event inheritance. When there is a long list of rendered objects it results in lagging UI.

Hence Famo.us is designed to tackle the UI lagging problems. Famo.us considered as an excellent framework for mobile application when it comes to performance factor. Though it is a little bit difficult to understand it delivers a hybrid mobile application with high-quality services.

Famo.us framework completely coded in JavaScript. It includes an open source 3D layout engine. 3D physics animation engine of this framework allows smooth UI and 3D games to be built. With Famo.us developers are able to build UIs that are simultaneously richer and faster. The application developed with this framework do not require to install any plugins.

Onsen UI


Onsen UI is also built on top of AngularJS and is considered as a competitor of the Ionic framework. Onsen UI framework is used to develop both the hybrid mobile apps and web apps.

Onsen framework provides a set of UI elements that allows developers to concentrate on the business logic of an application. If compare with Ionic framework, there are some small differences in both the frameworks.

Onsen UI utilises responsive layouts for classic web development while Ionic lacks support for classic web development. Onsen UI framework can be used with Cordova/PhoneGap command line for development of the hybrid mobile application.

Monaca IDE is a cloud HTML5 platform that can be implemented along with Onsen UI. It provides developers with an option to develop a hybrid mobile app and deploy them on multiple platforms.

Conclusion


All the platforms discussed above provide viable solutions for the development of hybrid mobile applications. But among all three frameworks, Ionic app development framework is a top choice for many application developers. Because Ionic UI offers a collection of UI layout components are specially designed for the rapid development of hybrid mobile applications.
