React Native

React Native is a framework that utilises React for writing mobile Frontend applications in Javascript. React Native compiles code into javascript bundles that can control a phone’s native libraries.

It’s a cross-platform framework that allows us to deliver our Android & iOS apps at a faster pace and involve more of our team since all you need is JavaScript skills.

What is React Native?

React Native is the next generation of React, a Javascript library used by Facebook and Instagram. Mobile developers use it to build native mobile apps, being able to reuse React Native components across multiple platforms.

Why Build in React Native?

To understand why React Native is so useful, one must understand the two basic ways of building mobile apps:

Native Apps

Native apps are apps written in native code – JavaScript for Android and Objective-C or Swift for iOS. They tend to perform best but are expensive to build due to each operating system requiring different code.

Hybrid Apps

Hybrid apps are Phone apps that contain a browser view. They are cheaper to build because they only require one set of code for both iOS and Android. However, hybrid systems use HTML & CSS to simulate native components, resulting in less than optimum performance.

Reasons to Use React Native

Using react native allows developers to build apps for both iOS and Android while using the same code baseline. The React Native code is reusable and easily maintainable. This can prove particularly cost-effective: apps are faster and cheaper to build while performing as well as native apps.

Most of our web developers are familiar with React which makes upskilling our team and finding resources for projects much easier. If you’d like an app that fits perfectly into the feel of an iPhone or Android device, downloadable from their app stores, then it may be a perfect fit for you.
