Top 5 Tools For Mobile App Development

Mobile app development has become a multi-million dollar business. Competition and demand for easy to use mobile apps are on the rise. This has put extra pressure on mobile app developers and mobile app development New York companies to innovate to stand out. Here are top 5 mobile app development tools that will simplify mobile app development process and help you to create more apps quickly.

1. Angular

What makes Angular stand out is its rich two way data binding capabilities, which makes code organization a hassle free experience for app developers. When you are using Angular, make sure to use HTML with attributes so that it can automatically bring changes to your application state and make visual rendering smoother. Another big advantage with Angular is that it can work with any library without any hassle.

2. ZURB Foundation

If you are following a rapid prototyping model then, there is no better tool than ZURB foundation. Although, it might not have the comprehensive set of features and controls app developers can get with other offerings but it more than makes up for it with its responsive capabilities. Additionally, you might have to use JavaScript, which means that it inherits jQuery dependency but that is not a big deal if you know how to use it to your advantage.

3. Bootstrap

When it comes to popularity, Bootstrap leads the list. With more than 15,000 forks, it is one of the most popular projects on GitHub. Add to that the massive library of plug-ins, extensions and a supporting community to help app developers, it offers everything you need to create beautiful mobile apps. With a wide variety of UI controls to play with, app developers have all the power. On the downside, all these UI controls add to the overall size. Another negative against bootstrap is that you can not customize through the project itself which makes automating custom builds more of a hassle. On the brighter side, Bootstrap is very active with releases which tries to iron out issues with previous versions.

4. Backbone

One tool that has revolutionized code encapsulation and organization is Backbone. What separate Backbone from other app development tools is that it is very well documented, short and easily readable. Moreover, it suggest an architecture to app developers but does not force you to follow its architecture. You can choose your own composition. On the flip side, it leaves app developers a lot to do and require jQuery to work properly.

5. Ember

One of the newest entrants in the mobile app development market, Ember offers options for every aspect of your mobile app architecture. Ember brings together the positives from Angular and merges it with the simplicity of Backbone to deliver an unmatched app development experience. The only things that could go against Ember is that it forces mobile app developers to follow a formal structure and body of code, which can both be a positive or negative depending on how you look at it.
