Ionic was founded in 2012 by developer and designer duo, Max Lynch and Ben Sperry. At the time, using web technologies as a means to build native apps was still in its infancy. We just wanted to create a better way for web developers to use their existing skillsets to build apps.
We’re a web-first company that embraces open standards and the same tools, libraries, and frameworks that are familiar to millions of web developers all over the world. We make it easy to build high-performance mobile and web apps, with a single shared codebase across multiple platforms and devices.
Ionic not only makes app development easier, faster, and more accessible — it makes it more fun. To us, mobile is all about finding new ways to change the way humans interact with the world, and we couldn’t think of anything more fun than that.
