Over the last two years, millions of developers from nearly every industry around world have built over 1.2 million mobile apps with Ionic.
When we started Ionic in 2013, we just wanted to make a better way for web developers to use their existing skillsets to build apps for the app stores. Today, Ionic is the world's most popular cross-platform mobile development technology, powering fast growing startups to some of the biggest companies in the world.
But we aren't satisifed with Ionic yet. We think it can be so much more for so many more people. We want to enable not just the current generation of mobile developers, but the millions more that are just realizing they can build for these amazing devices, too.
With Ionic 2, we've gone back to square one and completely rethought how a mobile toolkit should work. We've dramatically improved performance, reduced the complexity of the code you need to write, and made it possible to build completely bespoke apps that compete with the best apps in the world.
Today, we are incredibly excited to announce the first public preview release of Ionic 2. If you'd like to see what we've been putting our heart and soul into for the last year, please give it a try and let us know what you think. Be advised: it's alpha software, and we will be improving it rapidly in the coming weeks and months.
We're pretty confident Ionic 2 will change what you think about mobile apps and the future of the web forever.
