The Leading Frameworks for Hybrid App Development in 2023

Quick Summary:  Hybrid applications are a great way to get an app built and up and running quickly. They are the perfect option for startups and companies who want a presence in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Hybrid applications use web technologies for most of their code — so it’s familiar and easy to get started with, but it still has native user interface components, which provide a better user experience.

Hybrid App Development

The best 8 hybrid app frameworks for your app development are:

Ionic: Ionic is a powerful hybrid app development framework. It is one of the few frameworks to provide HTML, CSS, and JS for front-end and back-end. It can be used for developing mobile apps as well as websites. Ionic provides an ecosystem of products and services that assist developers in the long run. Ionic has huge community support as it has emerged from the strong base of AngularJS (the 2nd most popular framework). The documentation provided by Ionic together with its official blog ensures no developer faces any confusion while learning or working with this platform.

React Native: React Native has become very popular among mobile app developers in the last couple of years. It is a cross-platform framework that can be used to develop hybrid mobile apps. With React Native, web app developers can convert existing web apps to mobile apps without having to leave behind their existing skills and knowledge. This makes React Native a perfect alternative for Ionic Framework according to many experts. 

Flutter: Flutter – is an open-source, cross-platform mobile app development framework written in Dart. Flutter enables developers to create apps with high-productive value. It has a single codebase for Android and iOS which means less time is wasted creating different code for similar apps. It allows you to create highly creative UIs with flexible designs. It makes room to create and try out interactions that lead to the creation of brilliant MVPs (prototypes). That’s why big brands want Flutter to develop their apps, such as Alibaba, Google, Tencent, Ikea, HP, Expedia, Alibaba, etc.

PhoneGap: PhoneGap is a new and popular framework for creating hybrid applications. This means that iOS and Android apps can be built using HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. This reduces the time required to create an application by providing developers with a single codebase that can be deployed across multiple platforms. It is also easy for developers to use Cordova APIs as they are based on JavaScript.

Xamarin: Xamarin has its own separate IDE, which is easy to use. The framework allows the developer to use Android libraries. Also, it includes iOS libraries and SDKs in a manner that you will not find any difference between a native application and the ones that are developed using Xamalin. And it makes no difference to the end user of your application if they’ve downloaded the app via an Android market or Apple store. No extra charges for supporting versions other than Windows is a great advantage point for this framework as compared to its other competitors.

NativeScript: NativeScript is an open-source framework with fully integrated development of mobile applications. It enables the app developer to use JavaScript to build the app for different platforms like iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. This app developer also has access to the powerful features of native CSS, Java, and other coding languages to make the app very responsive.

Kendo UI: Kendo UI is a JavaScript UI framework developed by Telerik. The framework is famous for its elegance in functioning, wide range of features, and support for different frameworks (React, Angular, Vue, jQuery). Kendo UI is used to build mobile apps with HTML5 and works efficiently across all major smartphone platforms. Its advanced design concepts and its sheer simplicity have made it one of the most popular frameworks among app developers.

Framework7: Framework7 is a fast and powerful framework for developing hybrid applications. It’s a top hybrid app development framework for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Web. This is a design-first framework for building mobile apps. Framework7 comes packed with ready-made designs and components that you can fully customize to build your own app.


Frameworks are software development tools that allow for the creation of applications using standardized design patterns, pre-written code, and established best practices. Frameworks help you get your project off the ground by providing pre-written code. They can save time by providing code libraries to handle specific tasks such as user interface (UI) management or database integration. There is no right or wrong framework since each one has its own pros and cons. The framework you choose will depend on your project’s objectives, such as the functionality required and the timeline in which it needs to be completed.
