Mobile app development has been at the forefront of application development for quite some time now. The age of smartphones is the reason that this domain is flourishing at a level that is quite beyond anyone’s imagination. Since more than 50% of the users in the world prefer smartphones over other devices for their daily uses.

With the increase in technological innovation there has been a simultaneous upgradation in the number of languages for both the Android and iOS. Apart from these two, there has also been an increase in hybrid application development compatible for both of them, and it is also termed as cross platform app development.

We would be taking a comprehensive look on some of the best mobile app development tools in 2019 and they are as follows,


One of the most widely used frameworks for Hybrid application development. It is a preferable for many of the app developers, since it is free of cost and easy to use as compared to the other frameworks. Ionic is a client-side framework and it is used for building native apps pertaining to HTML, CSS and JavaScript as well. It is also compatible with the latest versions of the smartphones which contributes in creating an application that is flexible and robust before its release. In terms of developing applications that are progressive and versatile, Ionic is the choice that everyone goes with.


There has been a surge among the app developers to learn this framework from its launch back in 2013. Social media giant Facebook launched this with the intention of having a popular cross-platform framework with a tantalizing amount of flexibility and transparency. React Native is again free to use and it again provides a good amount of support for the IDEs and other development tools. It has been created with a singular focus of it being compatible with JavaScript framework for both Android and iOS.


Another cross-platform mobile development framework that is widely encouraged by industry experts and veteran app developers around the world. It was introduced in 2011 by Microsoft owned San Francisco based software company called Xamarin. The framework runs with C# and it is applicable on all three of the platforms namely, Android, iOS and Windows. It also provides a unique functionality of sharing your code with others which helps the app developers saving up a lot of time. Over one and a half million developers across the world are using Xamarin as per the official estimates of the company.


Formerly called PhoneGap, Cordova was originally created by Nitobi which was then acquired by Adobe Inc. It is used for building mobile applications compliant with HTML, CSS3 and JavaScript to be used for all three of the mobile platforms. Therefore, this makes it a favourable choice of app developers for creating hybrid applications. The main advantage of Cordova is that it offers a performance range that is second to none, and it functions with no hardware complications. You can also customize and create your own plugins by adding functionality that is much more than necessary.


This is a newly released application that has taken the industry by storm and it could prove to be a major dark horse in this domain. Flutter is a Google product and they released their stable Software Development Kit framework just last month in 2018. The platform has been written using Dart and it has been given additional advantages of rendering your application before releasing them.
