Most businesses are migrating from websites (web apps) to mobile apps, which is a strategy to reach the audience more quickly. However, the application industry is also going through one of the most competitive phases, in which the correct framework selection, together with the appropriate platform and a development strategy, have become essential. 

Over the years, there has been a steady increase in the number of programming languages for Android and iOS operating systems. In fact, the development of cross-platform (hybrid) applications has also gained momentum and we can certainly credit the frameworks as the cause of this great transformation. For, they play a crucial role in converting an Android app into an app for iOS and vice versa. 

So here are some of the best frameworks for application development in 2019 and beyond. 


Ionic is a widely used framework for mobile app development. What is more interesting to note is that it is free. Generally, it’s a client-side framework that helps you create native applications with a combination of HTML, CSS3, and JavaScript. 

The Ionic framework also supports the latest devices and prepares a robust terrain for applications before they are released. 

The HTML5 element also helps you create hybrid applications. And there is no doubt that it is considered one of the best frameworks for the development of Progressive Web Apps. 

React Native 

It is one of the other popular cross-platform frameworks that was released by the king of social media, Facebook. Although it was created in 2013, it has become one of the preferred options for mobile application developers. 

React Native is basically an open source framework that provides extensive support to IDEs and other application development tools. It’s supposed to be one of the best JavaScript frameworks for building native apps for Android and iOS platforms. There is the option of choosing React for the web and React Native for mobile application development. 


The software giant, Microsoft, introduced Xamarin. Developers who want to make better use of it should learn how to run codebase in C#. There is also the possibility of sharing these codes with the help of Windows and Mac OS platforms. That’s why, once code is shared, developers will save a lot of their time. 

Adobe PhoneGap 

If there is any change in the development of your application, you can instinctively view it with PhoneGap. So if you are thinking about developing applications in JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS this is a great option. In case, if you are planning to develop a hybrid application then it should be at the top of your list. 

This amazing framework not only offers the best performance in the category, but also offers developers the freedom to work without hardware restrictions. Thus, it can develop applications for almost all major operating systems, in addition to Android and iOS. You also have the power to add more functionality to the framework with the addition of plugins. 


Flutter was recently launched by google and is an open source SDK for application development written in Dart language. However, when it comes to the choice of the framework, this is more suitable for the development of hybrid applications. It is much easier to test your project, since you do not have to restart it if there is an error. 


Frameworks are the important tools in creating any application whether for web or mobile devices. Therefore, it should be remembered that each project or application has a different requirement and, therefore, the choice of framework should be made with care, after checking the other essential factors. The year 2019 will see the emergence of many other frameworks, but these presented here will undoubtedly top the list of many developers’ priorities.
