Lisa Morgan outlined why you should use mobile app frameworks. If you’re now looking for one, check out these offerings:
Infragistics: Ignite UI enables developers to create an application that looks like a native app for Android phones and tables, iPhones, and iPads, Windows Phone, Windows Surface, and desktop applications. The framework focuses on building applications that run on multiple platforms using one set of source code by sensing the device the code is running on, then changing the UI dynamically for that device. Ignite is included in Infragistics Professional and Ultimate suites, and can also be bought separately.
jQuery: jQuery offers an open-source and touch-optimized framework for smartphones and tablets, jQuery Mobile. The framework is built on top of the popular development tool jQuery and provides a unified, HTML5-based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms. Its emphasis on semantic markup and progressive enhancement makes it easy to use.
Verivo: With Akula, Verivo offers more than a framework, it offers an enterprise mobile application platform. The Akula platform consists of an enterprise server, management console, native client SDKs for Android and iOS, and a hybrid Cordova/PhoneGap SDK that supports Android, iOS, Windows 8 Phone and Windows RT. Akula client SDKs are designed to complement whatever application-development tools and frameworks are best for the user.
Appcelerator: Titanium is Appcelerator’s open, extensible development environment for creating native apps across different mobile devices and OSes including Android, BlackBerry and iOS as well as HTML5 and hybrid. It includes an open-source SDK with more than 5,000 devices and mobile operating system APIs, an MVC framework, an Eclipse-based IDE, and a ready-to-use mobile back end.
Xamarin: Xamarin offers two mobile framework products: Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS. Both frameworks allow developers to create mobile applications using C# and the .NET framework, and provides full access to standard Android or iOS APIs. If an Android developer decides to support iOS in the future (or vice versa), the frameworks allow developers to reuse up to 90% of existing C# code.
