Ionic app framework is the easiest to learn and the quickest to get a simple working app out. You can learn Ionic app framework by going through their tutorial on their website. For ionic, it is best that you have web development knowledge before proceeding as it runs mostly in web development programming languages such as HTML, CSS, JS.

Creating And Running An App
You can also create an app, either by looking for an app development company or creating it by yourself. You can also look for freelancers who are much cheaper app developers as compared to local companies. With these apps, you can run ads on them, and when people view those ads, you get paid a certain amount of money. What really matters is how many users use your app on a daily basis. With more people using your app, comes more revenue for your app.
Another way to make money from your app is by transaction fees. You can use app development to create an app that your users will transact for, getting a commission out of it. Some examples of these transactions are services such as home services.
