      • Ionic Framework is open source.
      • Exposure to Ionic framework is based on Angular JS.
      • Helps to develop an app for Android, iOS, Windows and more.
      • It has many built-in UI components which perfectly suits with many client requirements. Moreover, it reduces the development process too especially when a client wants to develop an app for the different platform.

      • Security features can be easily added using White List plugin.
      • It allows saving the offline data using SQLite.
      • It supports gestures like transitions, tap, swipe etc.

      • If you have limited needs which means you don’t need a complicated app which has tons of features, then a hybrid is perfect for you.

    Challenges With Hybrid Apps

      • Performance is one of the biggest issues with Hybrid apps. The iOS webview is far better than Android webview. So there are many parts where iOS works smoothly but Android’s hybrid app lags too much.
      • Animation makes the apps more live. Now as hybrid apps are designed in CSS and JavaScript, animation integrated within not as smooth as in native apps.
      • If your app needs too many gestures then maybe you don’t want to develop your app in a hybrid. It is not that bad, but obviously, it can’t compete with native apps.
        Hybrid apps don’t have native scrolling. Instead, it depends on Ionic scrolling which is not effective.

    How Developer Help You to Deal With Above Problems?

    • Hybrid apps are much like single page apps which run on the device using webview. To maximize the performance hybrid apps need to as simple as they can.
    • When it comes to animation, page transition, etc. developer prefer to stick with default animation and transitions. If you force them to add customized transitions and animations, then you need to pay for the bad user experience.
    • Ionic supports gestures like tap, swipe, hold and click so developers don’t add their creativity as these basic gestures are enough.
    • As mentions, Ionic has default scrolling which is not effective as native one so to deal with it developers try to show the data on the single screen.
