I use Dart because it is a fast, modern language with an intuitive package manager and syntax similar to Java, while less verbose (i.e. public by default,
_ in front of a variable, class, etc. to be private). Dart has an excellent asynchronous syntax making asynchronous calls such as filesystem interaction or HTTP requests simple and concise.
great framework,lots of resources,great community,easy to create UI
We use Ionic as it is an awesome framework to build mobile hybrid apps with nativ access. Also Ionic has a nice community!
Cross-Platform goodness. I am a noob here...learning how to implement Ionic is on the top of my ToDo's
used on a recent project, an internal custom app developed for both ios and android.
