Looking To Build Mobile Apps? Try These 8 Good Frameworks!

Use these awesome frameworks to build some really awesome mobile apps!

This is the time and age of mobile apps. There are practically so many of these that we can't possibly use them all even if we wanted to do. While some of these might be so amazing that we use them every day, others might just fade away after development. Whatever might be the case, mobile app developers always have both their hands full. Here are 8 good frameworks for mobile app developers.





1.jQueryMobile

jQuery Mobile is a touch-optimised web framework currently being developed by the jQuery project team. The development focuses on creating a framework compatible with a wide variety of smartphones and tablet computers, made necessary by the growing but heterogeneous tablet and smartphone market. The jQuery Mobile framework is compatible with other mobile app frameworks and platforms such as PhoneGap, Worklight and more.

2.Famo.us

Famo.us is a JavaScript platform that enables engineers to build beautiful, cross-platform web apps that perform as well as the very best native apps. It is the only framework that provides an open source 3D layout engine fully integrated with a 3D physics-based animation engine that can render to DOM, Canvas, or WebGL.

3.Jo

The simple open source app framework for HTML5. For iOS, Android, Windows 8, BlackBerry 10, Tizen, Chrome OS and anything else with HTML5. Widgets, lists and scrolling goodness using JavaScript and CSS3. Make native mobile apps or web apps with the same code. Works great with PhoneGap

4.Junior

A front-end framework for building HTML5 mobile apps with a native look and feel.

5.jQT

A Zepto/jQuery plugin for mobile web development on the iPhone, Android, iPod Touch, and other forward-thinking devices.

6.Lungo

A framework based on HTML5 for developers who want to design, build and share cross device Apps. Lungo supports open web standards, such as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. It brings consistent browser environment across mobiles, tvs and desktop devices.

7.Ratchet

Before it became a full fledged framework, Ratchet began as a series of HTML/CSS prototypes of the Twitter for iPhone app. These prototypes became invaluable to the process of testing new feature designs that ended up being shipped as part of the native mobile app.

8.Cordova

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

WhatsApp is illegal, will soon banned in India : Government

WhatsApp could have accidentally entered into troubled waters here in India by enabling its end-to-end encryption for all. The new security feature by WhatsApp is not what is required by the Indian telecom rules and WhatsApp could face a ban, if the rules are not adhered to. But not yet.
In India, companies need to follow the country’s rules and adhere to specific types of encryption, which WhatsApp does not currently use. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption on its chat service means that WhatsApp or anyone else won’t be able to crack open its contents.  Only the sender and the recipient are able to read the encrypted data. WhatsApp uses a 256-bit key for encryption of all chat messages, which is only known to the sender and the recipient.
Why is it not possible for WhatsApp to help decrypt users’ messages? "No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us," WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote on their blog. How…

3 Mega Acquisitions in last week affects the Internet Space of India

Qihoo 360 buys Opera in $1.2 Billion Opera Software intends to accept a $1.2 billion acquisition offer from a group of Chinese companies. The Chinese consortium includes Internet security company Qihoo 360, Internet firm Beijing Kunlun (which invested roughly$93 millioninto Grindr earlier in the year) and investment group Golden Brick and Yonglian. According to Opera, the $1.2 billion is a 56 percent premium over Opera's share price during the last 30 trading days. Despiteclaiming350 million users, the company's browser has struggled in the oversaturated Western market. China could be a profitable arena for Opera, in part because Google's Chrome browserdoes not come preinstalled on Android phones in China like it does elsewhere. In addition, doing business in China without local partners is nigh impossible, but Opera could leverage the networks of Kunlun and Qihoo 360 if the deal goes through.
