Why Use React Native for your Mobile App?
What is React Native?

React Native is a framework that allows you to build native mobile apps using JavaScript. Normally you'd need to program your mobile app using Java (for Android) and Swift/Obj-C (for iOS). React Native removes that requirement, which allows for a fully functional app on both platforms in much less time and using one code base.

React Native was developed only a few years ago, by a social media company you may know FACEBOOK.

So if you use Facebook you are in fact using an app which utlilizes React Native.

Why use React Native?

For a long time, React Native was considered to be commercially unviable. It wasn't developed or supported enough to produce 'native-like' apps.

But now it has gained increased popularity, also gaining support and gaining more market share. So saying that it is getting easier to code briiliant apps using React Native - and the world is taking notice.

Summary

React Native apps lower your development and maintenance costs, because you don't have to deal with two separate codebases for iOS and Android.

Since React Native is just a wrapper for native components, there's nothing stopping you from adding native Java or Swift code where you need it.

At the end of the day, you're still coding in JavaScript.

React Native is growing fast with no signs of stopping.
