4. Easy testing:
With the Ionic system, Mobile App testing gets simpler on a mobile browser or on safari in iOS devices. An Ionic developer can test the application on the work area program and direct test system testing for Android and iOS applications with the help of Cordova commands. The attempt to create a mobile app based on the Ionic framework is infrequently a failure with such a significant number of testing services.
5. Full Utilization of Cordova Plugins:
In the Ionic App Development framework, plugins play a major role. The features of Cordova plugins are used for native support. It help developers to easily test and deploy applications built with AngularJS.

The ionic based mobile app is powered up by Angular JS. By extending the HTML Syntax, Angular JS offers a robust structure to the developers to make codes more manageable. To create browser-based applications, the Ionic framework utilizes Angular JS to develop these mobile applications with higher performance by building their app structure. Angular JS offers a bunch of center functionalities to the designers.
7. Widget development:
Ionic frameworks allow the creation of widgets for often used apps on the home screen that enables the user to trigger the application from the home screen itself.
8. Enhanced development:
According to the statistics, 4+ million developers are using the Ionic framework and about 2+ million applications are built on the same.
Ionic makes the tasks of creating splash icons and screens comparatively easier than others.
