Ionic is indicated for which types of applications?


Is the Ionic Framework indicated for which types of applications? I've been doing some research on cordova plugins, it seems to give a lot of trouble in multiplatform development, some plugins do not work well for iOS and Windows Phone ? The best option is to go to the native?

Ionic is widely used for applications that do not require much animation or graphics processing. I use a lot for applications like virtual store, chat, portifolio, catalog, etc. I know several companies that are migrating from native development to hybrid platforms. First for its ease in maintenance and development, second for its maturity and reliability these days.

Some native mobile features are not yet available in the Cordova Apache libraries, if your project does not make use of any background. Super recommend it! As for performance, I have nothing to complain about! There is a crosswalk library that promises to improve perfomance of android phones from 4 to 4.4 I make use of them.

An important information is that some libraries have different implementations for each platform so you should have heard that someone had a problem with this or that Mobile OS, but in the way of rules, consult the documentation that has no error.

Good luck!

Ionic is suitable for relatively simpler applications. For example, if you try to create something like an Instagram or Facebook, you will have performance problems on Ionic because of the various import required among others.
