Ionic Overview

Ionic is the only mobile app stack that enables web developers to build apps for all major app stores and the mobile web with a single code base. And with Ionic’s Platform Continuity, your app looks and feels at home on every device. Ionic community has developed more than 4M ionic apps.

  • Free & Open Source — 100% source code on Github
  • Fully Cross-Platform — IOS, Android, Windows, Web, Desktop, PWA
  • Premier Native Plugins — Camera, Bluetooth, Push Notifications
  • First-class Documentation — Clear and Consistent

Progressive Web Apps(PWA) — The mobile future

Progressive Web Apps bring features we expect from native apps to the mobile browser experience. Ionic apps enable developers to get the best of both worlds: cross-platform app store deployment on iOS, Android, and Windows, along with deployment to the mobile web as a Progressive Web App with the same code. See this amazing video to see power of PWA- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxTaDhwJDLg
