In an Ionic compound, the electron sharing between two atoms is more like  20% : 80%    to  0% : 100%
   In these compounds the atoms gain  positive and negative charges.

In a covalent bond, the electron sharing is like : 50% : 50% to  35% : 65%.  So the electrons belongs to both atoms to a good extent.  So both atoms are more or less neutral.

In ionic compounds, electropositivity and electronegativity of the two atoms differ a lot.  In covalent compounds, they may not differ a lot.
