Well if you are looking for a platform to develop a mobile application, then choose the best framework that suits your project requirement.  Although, it’s a tough choice to select between ios or android and between ionic and react native. With a plethora of options such as Flutter, React Native, Ionic, etc., you can quickly develop your business mobile application with no hurdles.

 However, here we would be making an evaluation between the two most popular platforms; Ionic and React Native. But before we begin with the primary battle, let’s start with a short introduction about both React Native and Ionic and explain you the difference between both the platforms.


The ionic framework was launch in 2015. The framework uses AngularJS and Apache Cordova, which make the platform a favorite choice for developers.  The primary motive to develop this framework is for hybrid Softwares. The platform helps the developer to make default mobile app UI functionalities easily.

The cross-platform app can run on the same code, irrespective of the platform. This is what ionic can do. Let’s understand with an example for supposing you are using a tablet, then the app builds upon ionic customize according to the screen that you are using.

Ionic is one of the widely popular cross-platform app frameworks. Hundreds of applications have been developing with Ionic that can be found in app stores and play store. Few examples are Untappd, Pacifica, McDonald’s Türkiye, etc.

React Native

React Native is a relatively new framework. However, it has already had a sufficient market share and considers being the most popular JavaScript framework for building mobile app development UK. React native platform only use the native component that follows the native behaviors.  Along with this, it allows you to use parts written in native programming languages (Java or Kotlin for Android). The best thing about this platform is that it uses a native component that does not affect the performance of the app positively. 

“React Native vs. Ionic: The battle of frameworks”

If you ask me personally, I would personally give preference to React Native.  React Native provide a friendly programming environment that makes it easier for a developer to learn this language. From a developers perspective, the react constitutional framework delivers the most excellent solutions and removes the hurdles that decrease the speed of the app without degrading the quality of the app.

At last, the framework you choose highly relies on your project requirement. You can’t declare one framework as a winner over others. My advice is to evaluate Ionic and React Native based on your personal criteria, pick one and develop the best app using it.
