React Native is a Facebook product released in 2015. By the way, you don’t need to go far to get examples of the implemented products – the FB messenger and most of the corporate applications are created with the help of this environment.
6 Reasons to choose React Native
What is React Native
Simplicity and Convenience
An experienced React Native developer will not need much time to master the environment. All he needs to do to get started is to know JS and React. And, of course, the experience of “communicating” with Android and iOS platforms, knowledge of their specific features.
That is, React Native framework will be simple and convenient for the developer who knows what he is doing, and not the first day familiar with mobile development. That’s why our team has no problem creating applications to React Native.
Compared to native development, creating applications on React Native takes less time. Also, the ready-made plugins (modules) provided by the React Native community make it easier for developers to do so.
Creating a mobile application with React Native can be a bit more expensive than using other frameworks for hybrid products. But it will be cheaper and faster than developing native applications for every single platform.
Ideal for fast applications
Products developed on React Native correspond to the native behaviour and appearance, meeting all expectations of the user Android or iOS. This environment is ideal if you need a high-speed application.
But, the framework is not designed for complex products that require large-scale animation (games), complex calculations, work with large amounts of data, etc. In such cases native development is optimal.
All updates to the application created on React Native have performed automatically – there is no need for manual procedure. This eliminates the possibility of problems with earlier versions.
JS-“basis” of the React Native application can be easily combined with parts of native code that are written in Objective-C, Swift (iOS) or Java (Android). Thus, it is possible to easily add native components to finished products and use RN modules for native applications to save time and provide the same function for both platforms at once.
