What is a mobile application development framework?

by Appienz Technologies Mobile App Development Company

The progression of technology has led to an evolution in mobile computing devices and operating system, thereby enabling productivity on the go for the users via mobile applications and software. But the real question is, what powers these mobile apps? What are the ingredients of the mobile applications, and what are the processes in mobile application development?

Fundamentally, the Mobile Application Development Framework are software that provides the structure for the mobile app to the mobile app developer. It enables the developer to create the mobile application in any desired platform helping in the reduction of cost, time and consumption of scarce resources. It is mainly executed on a desktop computer, but it will enable the mobile application developer to develop the app on any platform.

Now, let’s discuss about various Mobile Application Development Frameworks

1. React Native

React Native is an open-sourced framework that enables mobile application developers to build a mobile application both on iOS & Android simultaneously. The whole process can be rendered using only JavaScript, which all Mobile Application developers are proficient at. React Native targets mobile platforms rather than browsers. React Native has the potential to expand to all platforms, even tvOS. This platform was developed and launched by Facebook in 2013. This platform enables the developers to build a true native mobile application

Pro’s of React Native

  • Cross-Platform Support
  • Easy Reusing of codes and Knowledge Sharing
  • Advanced and Latest Architecture
  • Abundant resources of third-party plugins

The main drawback of react Native is it is a relatively newer framework, making it prone to bugs and absence of support for many features in iOS & Facebook

2. Flutter

Flutter is another open-sourced platform developed by Google. It uses Dart as its primary programming language. This framework can compile the code, thereby giving the mobile app developers a truly native feel for their mobile application. Flutter is considered as one of the best mobile application development framework, and it is used by many developers.

  • Enables Native performance and helps the developers to build apps for both iOS & Android.

The drawbacks of flutter include,

  • Larger file sizes
  • Dart is not as advanced as other programming languages.
  • Both Flutter and Dart is unstable and is evolving rapidly


Ionic is a free open source software that combines HTML, CSS3 and JavaScript to build Native based apps. This mobile application development framework is being used widely. It provides better efficiency and also has a vast library of Cordova plugins. This framework also enables hybrid app development for the developers, thereby giving them massive flexibility. It can easily integrate with other platforms, or it can perform as a standalone platform.

Ionic framework has a large user base and a community enabling more accessible knowledge share among the community

4.Node JS

Node JS is another open-source platform based on JavaScript. It is used in mobile application development and web application development . It also implemented in creating the Internet of Things(IoT). There is a tremendous demand for Node JS and NodeJS developers. This is one of the fastest and most scalable frameworks in the market.

Applications can be developed rapidly using this Mobile Application Development Framework. NodeJs is easy to understand and manage to make the job of developing much easier. It offers extensive flexibility and long term support enabling you and your business to rely on a single technology

Pro’s of Node JS

  • Outstanding performance and Larger Scalability
  • Wide Range of Application
  • Easier Management of the enterprise through Nord Package Manager
  • Long term support
  • Easy to Adapt and Learn.

The main drawbacks of NodeJs are

  • Lack of Library support and lesser access to knowledge share
