React Native is open-source and is supported by Facebook, which means that it is community driven and a lot of time and effort has been put in developing and enhancing the framework, not just by the core team but by the global development community. It also encourages developers to learn and adopt the framework while providing contributions to enhance the framework. React Native has the largest community on Github and has various communities on other platforms including Reactiflux, Twitter and Reddit.
Many characteristics of React Native have enabled it to become a popular mobile app development framework:
One of the most essential React Native features is simplified binding which ensures that developers will have to change an object’s state before updating it making apps more stable and scalable. Moreover, usage of native APIs also ensures stability.
Instead of using WebView components, React native makes use of native mobile UI components to enhance speed and performance. React Native apps combine with GPUs (Graphic Processing Units) for a smooth user interface integration for a quicker code compilation and a faster application performance.
Integration of 3rd party plugins without using too much memory is also an essential feature of the React Native framework. Furthermore, React is easily readable and reusable, reducing development time and cost by approximately 30%.
React Native has the Live Reload feature by which developers can see changes to their codes while they’re actually making them without having to deploy the code after every change. This permits changing parts of the code without having to make changes to the whole application.
Flexbox is another component of React Native that creates interfaces for mobile apps for all platforms without going through the inconvenience of creating the same layout over and over for multiple platforms. React Native also has debugging tools and error reporting tools so that testing can take place swiftly and effectively.
We have successfully completed over twenty React Native mobile development projects and are always available to offer our expert technical consultation services for mobile development.
The following are some mobile apps we have created using React Native as our go-to framework:
1. Gameworks Mobile Wallet
Gameworks Wallet is a crypto token wallet for the storage and exchange of GWX tokens in the Gameworks ecosystem. It is basically a casino app which has the ability to send and receive EOS, GWX and other EOS-based tokens.
Winterwind’s team designed the app in React Native and the app is available for download on both App Store and Play Store. Developed on a hybrid architecture, it runs on the public EOS network with a unique combination of EOS blockchain data storage and MySQL DB within AWS.
