About Mionic

Mionic App Builder makes it easy to build, ship, and manage cross-platform mobile and tablet apps without any coding required.

Mionic is an Open Source Content Management System that helps agencies and individuals build their own web and mobile apps using visual design tools and customizable templates. Over 400 users and enterprise clients are using Mionic from MemicAppFactory to generate their own iOS, Android, and web applications, all without having to work in native code. The company also offers a marketplace of 3rd party applications and services that users can plug in to their applications to extend their capabilities.  Mionic App Builder decided to build their entire mobile application stack on top of Ionic Framework, to leverage the cross-platform capabilities and web-based nature of Ionic. 

The use of common web tools like HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, played a big part in choosing Ionic over native code. From the start we focused on not building the CMS on native languages because we wanted to have a larger community of developers who were speaking the same language. It was clear to us from the start we needed web languages not native. “We determined that building the CMS on Ionic Framework saves us 60% development time vs native coding, and 80% savings on maintenance vs maintaining native code. We can also hire developers in half the time.

Mionic App Builder leverages Ionic Framework components for features, such as booking or m-commerce functions, along with mobile-optimized graphics and navigation. Mionic App Builder makes it simple to add common display components to applications without extensive technical knowledge – and without having to worry about compatibility across platforms.  Because Ionic Framework UI components are already tested to make sure they look great on Android and iOS platforms, Mionic users can quickly and easily generate apps with consistent brand and user experience across platforms. 

A big advantage of Mionic is its flexibility to customize. We really wanted the client to be able to make each application look unique. We did a lot of work to provide different templates and layouts, each one individually, highly customizable. Every color is based on the library of colors from Ionic. And each color is directly linked from our Mionic color management page to the Ionic look and feel components. So users are free to pick different colors and this helps them know directly what they will modify or edit.” 

Our developer team and community add four to five new functional features every month, in addition to a constant drumbeat of new layouts, templates and icons. New functionality includes advanced calendaring and booking, and a unique feature to lock content and make it available only to certain users or groups.
