Yesterday (10.06.2015) Ionic announced the Deploy Alpha which enables you to update your app without having to wait for the review & approval.
They say that
Ionic Deploy lets you update your app on demand for any changes that do not require binary modifications.
You can roll back to a previous version of your app, automatically apply updates, and control every aspect of the upgrade.
Also, the features that they list as upcoming are stunning to say the least:
- live A/B tests
- multiple version deployment to certain "Channels"
This is pretty awesome to be honest, and really shows that there is future for Ionic framework and that it's a great time to be a hybrid app developer.
You can learn more about it from the official blog post.
