A mobile presence is a crucial factor for survival in today’s marketplace. Brands, both big and otherwise, are investing massively for this. In depth research, strategies, planning, and environmental analysis are happening on a major scale to appropriately fashion a mobile app. According to Grand View Research,

  • The mobile app development market was at a valuation of $170.52 Billion in 2020.
  • By 2027, the market is expected to hit the $366.34 Billion
  • The CAGR expected to be exhibited by the market from 2020 to 2027 is 5%.

These stats alone stand as testimony to the magnificence of the market. In this discussion, we will be touching upon the most efficient frameworks when it comes to mobile app development. These are the frameworks trusted by the best mobile app development companies. But first, let us familiarize ourselves with the kinds of mobile app frameworks out there.




This categorization is based on the functionality. And these are spread across the 3 most popular platforms: Android, iOS, and Windows.


  • Web Apps Frameworks

This includes emails, instant messaging, shopping sales, auctions, and weblogs among others. These are distributed over the web through a browser interface.

  • Native Apps Frameworks

This framework is not platform agnostic. These are specifically designed for individual OS such as Android or iOS. It makes direct use of device features as well such as RAM or GPS. And hence cannot be trusted for cross-platform functionality. However, native apps score high on aesthetics and functionality but compromises on customer engagement.

  • Hybrid Apps Frameworks

Developing hybrid apps are far more economical and ensures better customer engagement when compared to native apps. There maybe minimal compromise on aesthetics or functionality since it is platform agnostic. Hybrid or cross-platform apps usually combines aspects from both native and web apps.

Now that we have touched upon the 3 broad categories of frameworks, let us dive in to the 5 leading frameworks.




We are sticking to native and hybrid app development frameworks for this discussion. All these frameworks cater both to iOS and Android platforms.


React is Facebook’s cross-platform framework. It is used by leading brands such as Tesla, Airbnb, Skype, and Amazon Prime. It facilitates faster development. It also adds to functionality through third-party extensions, reusable elements, and component-based GUIs. React Native had a 42% market share in 2020.


Flutter is open-source and free. It is Google’s framework specifically for iOS and Android app development. It sports a simple code base and has been lauded for its SDK that facilitates the creation of unique native-like applications. Flutter is also characterized by its ability to integrate widgets, its rendering engine, along with integrating APIs and debugging. Fat cats like Google Ads, Alibaba, Birch Finance, and Hookle use this framework. Flutter enjoyed a market share of 30% in 2019 and has shot up to 39% as of now.


Xamarin employs the C# language. This makes it easier to write and deploy the code. It is a cross-platform framework and helps in quickly transferring scripts across multiple systems. Microsoft Xamarin delivers seamless native functionality and is further enhanced by connecting to Microsoft Visual Studio. This makes it the preferred framework for 14% of all developers worldwide. Over 15,000 apps have been developed using this and all of it amounts up to over 2 Billion downloads.


Ionic aids the creation of PWAs as well as hybrid and cross-platform applications. It uses Apache Cordova and Angular for creation of apps. This framework is known for UI components, filtration, input, views, easier navigation, and action sheets. This helps the developers to fashion feature rich and super-functional apps in less time. 3% of all apps use Ionic. The framework had a 28% market share as of 2019. Ionic is taking off recently since PWAs has shot up in popularity. The market value is expected to hit $10.44 Billion by 2027.

  • jQuery MOBILE

jQuery is another platform agnostic framework. It can be used to fashion highly functional and aesthetically appealing apps and portals that work seamlessly across smart phones, PCs and tablets. It uses HTML and JavaScript as the core tech. jQuery version 3 enjoys 39.6% market share. In 2019, jQuery was deployed on 80% of the top 1 Million websites. And in 2021, it is being used by 77.8% of the top 10 Million websites.

And that gets us to the conclusion of that list. These 5 mobile app development frameworks cannot be ignored in 2021 and in the times to come. And without doubt, these are the predominant frameworks being used by the best mobile app development companies in USA as well as in other locations. Let us now conclude.



Having a mobile presence can skyrocket customer engagement and get your brand a boosted reach across demographics. It can also introduce you to newer and more responsive Tas. However, it is important to align the functionality and aesthetics of your mobile ventures with the core philosophy of the brand. And this can be done only after selecting the right framework.
