How to use Ionic 2 with Backand

Posted by on May 31, 2016

This is a guest post by Simon Reimler, Author and Developer of Devdactic. Simon helps mobile application developers to be successful and build hybrid apps without native skills.

Ionic 2 is rising and will be stable towards the end of this year. This means, we can use our Backand inside an Angular 2 application, which changes the way we do things a bit. Additionally, we are now able to use Typescript which also brings some changes to our code. Have no fear, all those changes are for the better!

Mobile App Development: Native vs. Hybrid

Posted by on May 23, 2016

Developing your mobile application for multiple platforms is a process involving many trade-offs. While writing your application as a pure web app using HTML5 or similar technology is a quick-and-easy way to gain superficial cross-platform support, it doesn’t allow you to leverage native functionality to create a device-consistent user experience. Below we’ll look at two ways of adding native support to your application – hybrid and native development – and evaluate how to choose which is right for your application.

Angular 2 NativeScript Vs. React Native

Posted by on May 20, 2016

Cross-platform apps face a crucial choice in their development planning phase – should the application be developed as a native app, or should it be developed as a hybrid or web-based application? This question used to impact the amount of work to be done – namely, until recently, choosing to pursue a native approach for your application meant consigning your development team to simultaneously developing functionality in Objective C/Swift (for iOS) or Java (for Android). However, this is no longer a consideration when it comes to creating a native app experience. Below we’ll look at using JavaScript to create a cross-platform native app experience by examining React Native and the combination of AngularJS 2 and NativeScript. We’ll look at what each has to offer, then compare the two to provide a heuristic for making the right choice for your application.

Choosing a Parse Alternative

Posted by on Jan 30, 2016

You’ve probably heard that Parse is closing its doors. While they will keep the lights on until January 2017, if you use Parse, you probably want to replace it with a new Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) provider ASAP. Below we’ll look at the features offered by Parse, and how both Firebase and Backand stack up. We’ll explain what Parse had to offer, then look at the features in-depth to see why they matter for a BaaS provider.
