Best Examples of Apps and Websites Using AngularJS Framework

When you are checking Gmail, searching for a ride with Lyft or watching video-courses on Udemy, there is AngularJS making things happen. If you’re still in doubt whether to choose AngularJS for your future project, here’s a set of best AngularJS sites you may use as brand advocates.

What is AngularJS?

Why does it here? What’s its purpose in life? Who uses AngularJS? Who are its main ‘rivals’? What superpowers does AngularJS possess? And other existential question the answers to which could be as long as all open source Angular.js projects ever created.

We’ll try to keep it short and sweet. AngularJS, also known as Angular.js, is an open-source front-end JavaScript framework that is used to build single-page applications and websites.


Websites and web apps based on AngularJS pose one very distinctive feature, speaking more precisely the absence of one feature, which is page reload. Getting new emails, submitting a registration form and many other updates on the screen do not require page reload.

If you’re using a web application and there is no page reloading, this is the right sign that it is an AngularJS app.

Note: Don’t confuse AngularJS and Web Application Platform called Angular. Angular is a complete rewrite from the same team that built AngularJS. While Angular Type-Script is based on the same principles as AngularJS, its main point of interest lies in the development of complex web applications in contrast to single-page apps.


Similar “powers” possess JavaScript library called Backbone.js. One of the Backbone’s great benefits is its light weight (gzip-compressed file of 6.3kB). Sadly, this technology requires additional libraries (Underscore.js and jQuery to enable REST API support) in order to give all the best.

React, another JavaScript library that is used to develop user interfaces developed by Facebook guys. There is a big hype around React these days because of its simplicity compared to React. Still, this technology is ‘under construction’ and not mature enough, which may require a lot of maintenance work after the project delivery. In addition, React and AngularJS can both accomplish the same things, so the choice is just a matter of developer’s taste. As for our team, we’re comfortable to go with AngularJS.


AngularJS was originally developed as a for-profit project but shortly became as an open-source library that is now maintained by Google. It must be acknowledged that Google’s patronage explains why this technology gathered such strong community and became an unnamed standard for development of web based apps.

In fact, Angular became so widely popular that every 12 thousand out of 1 million websites are using it according to Libscore analytics service. You may say that 1,2% Internet penetration rate is not so impressive as for a Google’s protégé, and here’s where we’ll get to Angularjs website examples.

Best AngularJS Examples

First, here are some notable companies using Angularjs on their websites: NBC, Intel, ABC News, Sprint, Walgreens. Next, let’s get a closer look at sites using AngularJS.

The Guardian

British daily newspaper and online edition with more than 300 million monthly visitors had a unique problem: 20 thousands of images that are added to the newspaper’s CMS daily. In order to store, process and display such enormous amount of imagery content The Guardian has developed Grid, image management app.

The Grid system

The system is open-source, available on GitHub and was later adopted by other publishers with the same content management problem. And guess what! Grid is working with AngularJS.


Wix landing page

$290.10 million revenue generatingweb-based platform that allows users create websites. The platform has more than 50 million registered users that build and run their websites based on Wix. Such trust and interest in the platform capabilities is partly due to AngularJS technology that allows Wix platform to build beautiful and fast-working websites.


PayPal Checkout system

This name speaks for itself. PayPal is known for staying on the edge and adoption all new technologies in order to secure their superiority on the market.

Back in 2014 PayPal used AngularJS to rebuild one of its core element, Checkout System, in order to make it faster and safer. At that time we were very pleased to see such change, as long as AngularJS is one of our beloved techs. That is why we know all ins and outs of PayPal integration. To get more info on this matter head to this blogpost.

Nevertheless, next time using PayPal take your time to notice how flawless the payment process goes.


Contract closing

The biggest freelancing platform with 12 million registered freelancers and about 3 million jobs posted annually. Upwork handles all the communication between clients and freelancers through its own messenger. This messenger is integrated into the website and based on AngularJS framework as well as other systems across the platform.


gmail interface

Another great example of AngularJS at work. Gmail is a classic Single Page Application (SPA). Every time you open Google’s mail service your browser loads one single HTML page and dynamically updates the page as you interact with it. Reading email, writing a new one, going to the new tab, all those actions are in fact is displayed within a one single web page thanks to the power of AngularJS.

Bottom Line

AngularJS is by far one of the best front end frameworks for development of dynamic web pages and web application. It has a versatile and elegant set of resources which will come in handy both for development of high-loaded web apps and simple websites.

Moreover, AngularJS is pretty mature technology. This fact eases coding process and allows developers (including us) to implement ready-made solutions, rather than building from scratch. This fact, as well as an active community and Google development team, allows to develop is short terms and lesser costs.
