Targeting all platforms, a hybrid mobile app offers a lot to an app owner and makes the work easier for a developer. It enables single shared codebase for Android, iOS, and Windows
The next generation frameworks for hybrid mobile applications have solved some of previous limitations of hybrid apps for developers, including usability, updating SDKs, and access to device APIs to name a few.
The developer must choose the right framework for their hybrid mobile app and maximize its potential to build a smooth and quality hybrid app with less headaches along the way.
I have already written a detailed article on Ionic Framework 4.0. Here’s a list of top 3 hybrid app frameworks that you should try for your next project:
Using the same design as React, React Native allows developers to compose a rich mobile user interface from declarative components. It helps developers build a real mobile application that is identical from a mobile application built using Objective-C or Java as it uses the same fundamental user interface building blocks as regular Android and iOS applications.

Popular among developers across the world, Xamarin is different because it offers a single language C# and runtime that works on three most used mobile platforms i.e. iOS, Android, and Windows.
Backed by Microsoft, Xamarin helps developers build a mobile application which looks and feels completely native. Here developer write one C# code base which will have access to all features and are available for native SDK.
These days, PhoneGap is the most popular hybrid framework for mobile cross-platform app development.
Built by the team behind Apache Cordova, the Adobe PhoneGap framework is an open source distribution of the Cordova framework.
But browsers’ support for HTML5-based device access is not consistent across mobile browsers. To sole this issue, Apache Cordova embeds the HTML5 code inside a native WebView on the device, using a foreign function interface to access the native resources of it.
The Take Away
These were top three picks from the plethora of Hybrid frameworks available. Before choosing one for your next project, read the documentation, get an overview of their features and see if the framework aligns with your project requirement.
