~How are hybrid mobile apps built?
These plug-ins include APIs for accessing the device’s accelerometer, contacts, camera, and more. There is also a number of plug-ins that are built and maintained by the developer community at-large. These can be found in the Apache Cordova Plugins Registry. A curated subset of these plug-ins that have been throughly tested, documented, and extended can also be found at the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace.

- Ionic that uses apache cordova (phonegap) for accessing mobile hardware (api) such as camera, contacts, Accelerometer, Vibration and more.
- Ionic has a beautiful UI Components for mobile applications
