1) What is Onsen UI ? Why we need it?
You might be thinking I already have knowledge of Bootstrap why then I need another framework need to learn for hybrid app development? The question is right you can integrate the boostarp in phonegap very easily , but…
We are making Hybrid apps, not just only web view applications for mobile devices. There are many things rather than just responsiveness for mobile applications. So we need more than the bootstrap, that will make our hybrid apps feels like native ones. So the Onsen UI is front end framework for hybrid mobile app development.
Hybrid Apps are the mobile applications made using the front end web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 & JS. One of the way to make it is using PhoneGap, the PhoneGap is developed by Adobe for hybrid app development. The most beautiful thing about these apps is that they are cross platform, means code once and make app for diffrent platforms like Android . iOS, Windows Mobile.
