React Native – What is it?

React Native is a cross platform user interface framework developed by Facebook that provides us the ability to utilize the best from the React framework along with the native platform capabilities in your existing project or in a completely fresh one.

This sounds good, but why do we use it?

1. Time–saving and great performance

With React Native you no longer need to choose which version of your app you want to build and launch first. Because this is a cross-platform, meaning it is compatible with both Android and iOS, we only really need to build one app. In addition of being time saving, natively written code also enable s it to function the same way on both platforms with no lags at all.

2. Flexibility

If at some point in the future you desire to move the app to another development framework we don’t need to start over. We can easily export the app from React Native and move it into Android Studio or Xcode and continue from there. It also offers a feature called hot reloading which enables us to immediately view the changes we’ve made to the code which comes in handy when experimenting with the app’s features.

3. Fast updates

With React Native both of your apps can be updated at the same time and the whole process is much simpler. Improvements can be updated even as users are using the app and there is no longer need to wait for your apps to be manually approved by Apple and Android. This ultimately saves time and makes the process much more seamless.
