There is a reason that why corporate behemoths are utilizing such a bunch of technologies to develop their apps and websites and get optimum results. And looking at the current trend one can say that Javascript is going to be the hot favorite language for the upcoming years too. Gaining highest amount of popularity as front-end language, JavaScript frameworks holds its significance even when people are shifting towards Ajax based application development, two-way data binding, event handling, and access cross-browser support.

What JavaScript frameworks have to do with mobile app development?

With the rise in mobile apps, we have become capable enough to pay bills by using fingers, do shopping, book online tickets or perform any other activity. And there is no doubt in the fact that smartphone revolution has brought numerous challenges in front of developers as there has been a great paradigm shift in the field of development.

Mobile apps, be it for iOS, Android or windows are created by coding using different programming languages. For an iOS app uses Objective-C, an Android app is coded with Java, while a Windows Phone application uses .NET. Having a decent knowledge of programming languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, one can easily build a cross-platform mobile application. And you know this is when JavaScript frameworks can be taken into consideration. Down below I would like to mention a few JavaScript frameworks that can provide a great help in deploying cross-platform mobile apps like never before.
  • PhoneGap- Being a Cordova based open source framework, PhoneGap is quite popular when it comes to developing high-end mobile applications. Created to develop mobile apps for all mobile OS platforms like iOS, Android, Windows, the platform even allows you to create apps that can be available either offline or online. Professionals simply require making use of standard APIs in order to make their app functional on all major mobile operating systems. In addition to this, one can even convert their website into the app using PhoneGap. All you need to do is upload the data contents on your website and the platform automatically converts it into various app files.
  • Titanium- Being an open, extendable mobile app development, Appcelerator Titanium helps professionals to create bold, beautiful and transformative applications. Apps created using this framework can run on different mobile devices as well operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, etc. Speaking at its core, it comprises of an open source SDK with more than 500 APIs, Alloy, an Apache-licensed, Titanium-based model–view–controller framework, and Titanium Studio, providing ready-to-use mobile backend. Most of us consider the platform as an awkward winning environment that helps businesses to market 60% faster and attains a significant competitive advantage.
  • jQuery- Being a small, fast and feature-rich JavaScript library, jQuery is the best option when it comes to creating custom themes and easily integrate them with third-party or other technologies. The easy-to-use APIs works across multiple browsers and makes several tasks like event handling, document transversal & manipulation, animation, and Ajax. Now there are two ways to make use of jQuery- one is a local installation by which you can download jQuery library on your local machine. Second, CDN Based Version – You can include your jQuery library into your HTML code directly from CDN.
  • Mobile Angular UI- Much like jQuery, Mobile Angular UI offers multiple development components like switches, absolutely positioned top and bottom navbars that don’t bounce on scroll, overlays, sidebars, scrollable areas. In fact, one can also bring their website to the mobile phones in the form of an app. HTML is best when it’s about declaring static documents, but at the same time, it wavers when someone tries to make use of it for declaring dynamic views in web apps. And maybe that’s why Angular JS is considered as the best option that allows you to expand HTML vocabulary for your app. The environment being extremely communicative, readable and quick to develop. AngularJs is a toolset used for building the framework appropriate for application development. Being highly expandable, it works well with other libraries. Now each and every aspect of this framework can be tailored or changed to suit your unique development workflow and characteristic requirements.
  • Sencha Touch- It is the leading HTML5 and JavaScript based cross-platform mobile & web application framework used to create universal range of mobile apps. Its controls hardware acceleration techniques offering high-performance UI components for mobile devices. With more than 50 built-in UI components and native looking themes, one can easily create impressive bunch of apps that work well on iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows phone and so more. In addition to this, there are several other features that include a novel and adaptive layout engine, fluid animations, and smooth scrolling that allow developers to build an application that responds to user actions right away. So this is all for now! Your decisions should be based on functionality of the framework. And if still confused feel free to connect with an iOS app development company in town.
