There are only few minor differences between them regarding the sizes and layout of the app. But all of these differences can be managed with CSS. Here is what MarketWatch has to say about the cross-platform framework:
“We picked Ionic because of how heavily it leans on existing technologies that we are familiar with and use regularly, but we wanted something that also didn’t compromise on the app experience. The fact that the framework is so performant only reinforced our decision. We’re incredibly pleased with the outcome and think Ionic has made our app stronger.”
