So there have been mutterings in the developer world lately that hybrid apps are the way of the future as they offer a faster and more flexible approach to multi-platform mobile app development. Who am I kidding here, they are screaming this from the rooftops.
So what’s my interest in all of this? Well I recently got involved in building a hybrid app for a client (check out the projects section of my main site). We used Ionic which is a front-end framework built on top of Cordova. All I can say is, I was blown away. I have been thinking of getting up to speed with Swift for some time but having worked with Ionic, I just don’t see the point. Hybrid is the future! In my next post I’m going to talk specifically about Ionic, so stay tuned and hit me up on Twitter for any further discussion.
