As the world tries to make sense of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and ensuing social and economic crisis, developers in the Ionic community are leading the charge to inform and help the public. In the last few weeks, we’ve been made aware of many efforts across the world by Ionic developers to build useful […]

Long before joining Ionic, I built web-based apps (using jQuery and Knockout.js!) and deployed them to iOS and Android using Cordova.

Note: In this post, I’m using “Mobile First” to refer to the business concept of launching an app before a web experience, not the responsive web design use of the term. For app startups, nothing is more critical than user adoption. Unfortunately, today’s app stores are hyper competitive places, and it’s nearly impossible to stand […]

With the launch of Ionic React a few weeks back, the reception from the community has been incredible. We’re thrilled that so many of you are excited to use Ionic React, and I myself was excited to try React a bit more. Given that I spend most of my time with Angular, it was fun […]

Hey folks! I wanted to take a moment and share some comments/thoughts about a recently released update from Apple regarding web apps and the iOS App Store. Recently developers were sent out an email from Apple about Web Based Apps (noted as HTML5 Apps) in the App store. Before we jump into the post, let […]
