6 Hybrid Mobile App Frameworks for UI/UX Designers
Native codes ruled the app development arena, and then there came PhoneGap, AppGyver, Appcelerator, and others to initiate the debate between hybrid and native mobile app framework development. The effectiveness of HTML5 is hard to deny, and with the same reason, the hybrid mobile app development is gaining all sorts of praise.
The total count of mobile applications has exceeded 1.5 million (for Apple’s app store) and 1.6 million apps for Android users, among which hybrid frameworks have formed a greater part. As the demand for the exceptional framework is increasing, developers are looking to offer unique UX to users through their apps’ functionality.
As the technology is boosting at a faster rate, a number of tools and frameworks have already been developed to make the development job easier for the developers and providing a unique experience to users. There are three different types of sub-categories in app development: web, native, and hybrid mobile app development. The hybrid mobile app framework has captured the major share of the market, and as one of the best frameworks to develop a cross-platform application, the hybrid mobile app framework has made its niche position in the industry.
In today’s post, I share six hybrid mobile app frameworks you can use when starting out.

Mobile Angular UI is very much like Sencha Touch. It can be used as an extension to Bootstrap 3, but doesn’t have the dependency on Bootstrap or jQuery. Because Mobile Angular UI has not any dependency on jQuery, all that is needed to create awesome mobile user experience is Angular JS directives. Mobile Angular UI is originally an HTML framework that also makes use of Bootstrap3 and Angular JS for developing interactive, engaging, and exceptional applications for the users. There are more advantages for the users as Mobile Angular UI has been made available for free that can be used under MIT license. The source is easily available at Github.
