Hello friends ,
using Ionic framework its really easy and faster to develop mobile application for multiple platforms like ios and android. some performance issue is there with device feature access but if your application is not using much of device features and only database access than its really great to use Ionic framework for mobile application development.
from last week I stared making my hands dirty with ionic framework :). I faced many problems during ionic installation , creation of application and deployment to android device. still ionic installation and application creation is easy but deployment to android device is tricky. I referred many YouTube videos, blogs and tips and tricks to make it possible to deploy my test application to android device.
