The different types of Application Frameworks
Applications can be developed in different ways, using Native or Hybrid Code.
Native apps are built for a specific operating system, such as iOS and Android, this means developers need to write separate code for both Android and iOS. Native apps are more flexible and offer better performance as well as security. They follow particular guidelines to enhance user experience, so developers can leverage all the features of a given operating system.
Hybrid apps, on the other hand, are built to work across any OS and share the same code base. Having a single shared codebase allows the developers to add new functionalities to multiple versions of the app and usually enables .
With that in mind it is your choice to make the choice which fits best the needs of your business taking in account parameters such as time, costs and overall developer resources for maintenance.
Here is the exhaustive list of main Frameworks and Progamming Languages:
Cordova / Ionic
Swift / Objective-C (iOS)
Kotlin / Java (Android)
