What is difference between Ionic and Android?

What is Ionic?

Ionic is an HTML5 mobile app development framework targeted at building hybrid mobile apps. Hybrid apps are essentially small websites running in a browser shell in an app that have access to the native platform layer. Hybrid apps have many benefits over pure native apps, specifically in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code.Unlike a responsive framework, Ionic comes with very native-styled mobile UI elements and layouts that you’d get with a native SDK on iOS or Android but didn’t really exist before on the web. Ionic also gives you some opinionated but powerful ways to build mobile applications that eclipse existing HTML5 development frameworks.

What is Android?

Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android’s default user interface is mainly based on direct manipulation, using touch inputs that loosely correspond to real-world actions, like swiping, tapping, pinching, and reverse pinching to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard. Game controllers and full-size physical keyboards are supported via Bluetooth or USB. The response to user input is designed to be immediate and provides a fluid touch interface, often using the vibration capabilities of the device to provide haptic feedback to the user.

Difference between Ionic and Android

Ionic is dependent on Angular and PhoneGap. As such it runs in A WebView. The development of the “Angular” part is practically same for both Android and iOS. However Ionic uses cordova/Phonegap to access native APIs. These plugins provide similar but not exactly same functionality.

There is a difference between Android and iOS. Take the example of file plugin. Android and iOS store data at different locations. Or the Camera plugin. The default location of captured image might be different on different platforms. Or the Status bar plugin. iOS has more features for status bar and some features are available for single platforms only (3D Touch or Keychain). Also both are deployed on different WebViews. Android uses Chromium or Android System WebView. There will be subtle WebView differences which you might notice as you code. Since the native code of iOS and Android are different , there might be a case when your code works good in iOS but throws errors on Android and vice versa. Some plugins have issues with each other. It’s handy to have a basic knowledge of how iOS and Android Apps/Platform function internally.

Getting a job in a large company might be easier with Android SDK/Java development. Start ups are increasingly using cross platform tools, but many are still using native tools. If you’re creating your own apps, writing it once seems a clear win over doing it twice.

Why Software Development Tools are used in making a software?

A software development tool is a computer program that software developers use to create, debug, maintain, or otherwise support other programs and applications. The term usually refers to relatively simple programs, that can be combined together to accomplish a task, much as one might use multiple hand tools to fix a physical object. The most basic tools are a source code editor and a compiler or interpreter, which are used everywhere and continuously. Other tools are used more or less depending on the language, development methodology, and individual engineer, and are often used for a discrete task, like a debugger or profiler. Tools may be discrete programs, executed separately – often from the command line – or may be parts of a single large program, called an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). In many cases, particularly for simpler use, simple ad hoc techniques are used instead of a tool, such as print debugging instead of using a debugger, manual timing (of overall program or section of code) instead of a profiler, or tracking bugs in a text file or spreadsheet instead of a bug tracking system.

Uses of Software Development Tools

  • Translating from human to computer language

Modern computers are very complex and in order to productively program them, various abstractions are needed. For example, rather than writing down a program’s binary representation a programmer will write a program in a programming language like C, Java or Python. Programming tools like assemblers, compilers and linkers translate a program from a human writeable and readable source language into the bits and bytes that can be executed by a computer. Interpreters interpret the program on the fly to produce the desired behaviour.

  • Making program information available for humans

Because of the high complexity of software, it is not possible to understand most programs at a single glance even for the most experienced software developer. The abstractions provided by high-level programming languages also make it harder to understand the connection between the source code written by a programmer and the actual program’s behaviour. In order to find bugs in programs and to prevent creating new bugs when extending a program, a software developer uses some programming tools to visualize all kinds of information about programs.

What is an IDE?

Integrated development environments combine the features of many tools into one package. They for example make it easier to do specific tasks, such as searching for content only in files in a particular project. IDEs may for example be used for development of enterprise-level applications.

What is the need of graphic designing in business?

What is a graphic designer?

A graphic designer is a professional within the graphic design and graphic arts industry who combines together images, typography, or motion graphics to create a piece of design. A graphic designer creates the graphics primarily for published, printed or electronic media, such as brochures (sometimes) and advertising.

What is the role of a graphic designer?

Graphic designers create visual concepts using computer software, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. They develop the overall layout and production design for advertisements, brochures, magazines, and corporate reports.

What is the Importance of Graphic design for Business?

“A picture speaks a thousand words”. And rightfully so; communication is a vital part of any business. If your audience or your potential client does not understand what business your company is doing it will fail to generate leads or drive growth. Of course there are other ways of conveying your information through words, phrases and content.

But a visual means is the most striking way to hit the audience’s mind so that the message remains etched in the viewer’s memory. It is here where a graphic design plays a very important role to convey a message with a dash of innovation. The process of graphic designing involves combining technological, aesthetics and creative thinking to generate graphically communicative ideas.

What is the purpose of a graphic designer?

Graphic design is art with a purpose. It involves a creative and systematic plan to solve a problem or achieve certain objectives, with the use of images, symbols or even words. It is visual communication and the aesthetic expression of concepts and ideas using various graphic elements and tools.

Confused about which app to choose among native, hybrid and web for your business?

Developing an app for your business but confused in native, hybrid and web applications. Business, branding, technical, design, marketing all of these have a crucial impact towards the success of your app. They also carry consequences in case you make the wrong decision. The most expensive ones in app development are certainly the technical ones.

Points to consider before choosing an app type?

To develop an app for your business one must first consider the target audience and the type of app which will depend on many factors. Before we get to these let’s first cover some of the key differentiation between native, hybrid and web applications:

  1. Programming languages they are built in. This can vary from native device languages such as Switch and Java, to web based technologies with HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
  2. Access to native device APIs. This implies the ability of the app to use the device’s native features and other available APIs.
  3. Distribution method. This defines the channel through which the app will be findable – app stores or web.
  4. Multi-platform support. This simply means that different app types have different abilities to run on iOS and Android.

Now lets see what is the general difference between native, hybrid and web applications.

Native apps

The simplest definition for native apps is that they are developed for specific devices, in a platform-specific programming language – meaning that an app developed for iOS won’t exist in the Google Play Store or work on an Android phone.

Hybrid apps

Hybrid mobile apps sit exactly between native apps and web apps. They have a feel of a native app because they are downloadable from an app store and live on your home screen, but they rely on rendering in a browser that’s embedded inside the app.

Web apps

Web apps are simply websites that ‘feel’ like an app because of their interactivity and functionality. They are served through the internet, they run in browsers and cannot be downloaded to a mobile device like native apps can.

Conclusion

These three app types each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and your decision will impact the growth of your business. That’s why the key of this process is understanding your assets and limitations and to use them in order to take the best output in the form of your app.

And after you’ve considered your options and made your decision, it’s crucial you work with developers that can visualize your idea and bring it to life on your budget and according to the core goal of your business. It is important to work with a team that is knowledgeable and experienced in the exact technology that supports your choice so your app can achieve its full potential.
