Ionic is a clever tool which initially created drag & drop solutions to make simple applications using jQuery Mobile and Bootstrap. Seeing the popularity of such solutions, developers decided to create their own framework that allows you to create applications faster and easier – this is how Ionic was created. The main assumption of this interesting framework is the possibility of using typical web code to minimize the effort associated with releasing the application to another platform. In many cases, Ionic will make the “copy-paste” of web application code work in the mobile application. We have already described the advantages and features of this intuitive framework in our other article, if you are interested, click here. In this article, we will focus on another issue related to this framework. Namely, it is about the use of Ionic by enterprise clients and what benefits such clients can get from using this framework.

Before we move on to the description of individual applications and companies that have benefited from Ionic, it is worth repeating the main advantages of using this framework.

The main reason why Ionic is so readily used is that it saves businesses time and resources while building cross-platform apps. Such time saving is achieved by platform adaptation being so convenient and simple. That is why, a single, experienced development team can release an app and swiftly adapt it to run on multiple platforms. It is therefore possible to release one application for both iOS and Android with great resources savings. Therefore, Ionic allows us to create hybrid mobile apps while minimizing adaptation development.

What are the other reasons to use Ionic?

  • The main reason why Ionic is so appreciated is that it is based on well-known web technologies. Therefore, even less experienced programmers will be able to work on this framework and use its simple and intuitive functions.
  • Ionic makes it possible to integrate with most of the plugins, add-ons, and modules for AngularJS and Cordova. A great advantage of this framework is that Angular’s plugin repository currently contains over 2000 modules. Such modules can facilitate the integration of Ionic apps with popular web services, which implement complex UI elements.
  • Ionic is a framework that is under constant development. Available Ionic 2.0 represents a significant enhancement to the first iteration. Ionic 2.0 is based on Angular 2.0, which offers greater efficiency, more convenient functions. What is also very important, Ionic has a clean code structure and has easy to use, built-in modules for mobile apps creation.

Developers admit that Ionic is one of the most favorable choices for hybrid app creation. Developing a mobile app with many functionalities, features and user experience is possible in Ionic. Although there are many benefits of hybrid app development while using Ionic, we listed some practical examples.
