Do you know what apps like Instagram, Skype, and Uber have in common? They all use the popular, JavaScript based, React Native framework.

THE 3 REASONS WHY REACT NATIVE IS THE BEST OPTION FOR YOUR MOBILE APP

The focus of React Native is front-end development for mobile apps. The idea is to give production-ready capabilities, in an easy-to-use package.

1. It Has Cross-Platform Abilities: Created distinctively for mobile applications, it allows the developer to write code that is compatible with both iOS and Android, making it extremely time-saving and versatile. Hence why, in just a short amount of time, some of the world's leading mobile apps adopted this powerful framework to build their user interfaces.

Being able to use code more than once is the biggest advantage of using React Native, as it saves monumental amounts of effort, plus it involves the ability to run apps on different platforms, utilizing almost the same process. The apps are rendered natively in both Android and iOS from the same codebase. In addition, the framework gives structure to the user interface using components, essentially the building blocks that assemble the website. The result of those two attributes is a performance superior to almost any other cross-platform solution.

The architecture of React Native is very well tailored to mobile devices, with an emphasis on GPU usage rather than CPU usage. Load times are considerably shorter and the overall responsiveness of the interface is better.

2. It is Easy to Use and Upgrade: Regarding the user interface, React Native is better than its competitors —which includes Flutter, the Google-born equivalent— mainly because it runs in native views and components. Moreover, understanding how to use it is much simpler, due to it working on JavaScript, rather than in a complex programming language.

This set of tools was first created and implemented by Facebook —nowadays called Meta— around 2015. From the start, it was built on top of the JavaScript library React, which was already very popular. As this new framework was modular and intuitive, it made a flexible alternative for developer teams tired of cross-platform issues.

Due to React´s nature, it is less complicated to create updates for web applications, with the added possibility to see changes made in real-time, thanks to a tool called live reloading, this will give the team of developers the power to solve problems on the go and understand exactly how changes modify the UI. In addition, one of the perks included is the elegant and smooth animations supported by React Native, many UI designers will appreciate this functionality. There is a large community behind this open-source tool, which gives a great deal of material and an array of solutions for developers, just in case they encounter a mysterious and hard-to-solve bug.

3. It Saves a Lot of Time and Resources: There is also support for third-party libraries, which gives the developer a whole array of personalized functions to apply in difficult cases. This completes the idea of having a strong community providing open-source content to secure the future of the framework.

It is considered that 90% of the code can be shared between iOS and Android, eliminating the need to hire two teams of people for each operating system, this reduces the development costs considerably. In the same order, adapting pre-existing applications to React Native is less complicated than with other tools. So, if you are looking to reduce costs, you will hardly find a better solution.
