Build amazing native and progressive web apps with HTML5

Well, hello there, wonderful people! You may have noticed that we’ve been a bit quiet since the last release of Ionic and may have been wondering where we ventured off to. We’ve been hard at work prepping the Ionic 2 Release Candidate! We’re happy to announce that it’s finally here, along with some major performance […]

Here at Ionic, we believe speed is a requirement, not a feature. We take pride in being performance-obsessed, because we believe speed is key to providing a first-class user experience. Most of the apps at the top of the App Store charts all have one thing in common: They’re all very fast and fluid! Ionic […]

By now, you’ve probably heard that Progressive Web Apps are the future of all mankind.

In the process, they might even push the mobile web forward, bring parity to web and native apps, and […]

Ionic developer North McCormick, who started Ionic Utah, recently talked with us about two personal IoT projects he built last year, using Ionic. “I was super excited that when the time came to work on my IoT projects that I […]

It’s that time of year again, where we reflect on everything that happened in the last year with Ionic and imagine what 2016 might have in store for the Ionic world (See what happened in last year’s update). 2015 was a transformative year for Ionic. We launched Ionic 1.0, broke ground on Ionic 2, added […]

Today, we are excited to announce the soft release of Ionic 1.2. This release comes with over 100 bugs fixed, tons of PRs merged, and some awesome new features that I’ll get to in a second. It also marks the start of our transition into the next generation of Ionic. We are looking for help […]

Since launching Ionic Creator into the wild in July of 2014, over 80,000 developers have used it to rapidly prototype their Ionic apps. While we could not have been happier with the response that Creator received, we knew that there were definitely things that could be improved upon. And many of our awesome early users […]
