Mobile application development is taking a huge leap forward with new tools and technologies continuously infiltrating the technological world. Choosing the right software tools can be a tough call for a business owner planning to start a business online. Native mobile applications and hybrid applications equally dominate the modern technological industry.

Built to incorporate the responsiveness of web apps to hybrid app development, React Native has been rapidly picking up steam among developers and business owners alike. Developed by Facebook in 2015, React Native is the first open-source cross-platform JavaScript framework for building and developing hybrid iOS and Android applications using declarative React components and a single code base without compromising on UI/UX experience. The framework is based on Facebook’s JavaScript library, React, and allows developers to create apps for both Android and iOS simultaneously with a near-native interface instead of creating two different apps from scratch.

Features of React native

React Native apps are created using a mixture of JavaScript and XML, creating a language extension known as JSX. Developers create user interfaces using React’s JavaScript UI which then connects native platforms with JavaScript and React code by using the bridge function. This assists developers in reusing native code in the React Native framework, allowing for an efficient coding process, saving you the client time and money.


With tech giants like Facebook, Instagram, Discord and Walmart using React Native for their app development process, let us explain why they prefer it:


React Native is open-source which means that it is accessible for anyone to learn and adopt the framework. Developers are encouraged to contribute and provide recommendations to improve and upgrade the framework. Such a massive community forum also provides a great learning experience for developers wanting to learn more about the React Native framework and best coding practices.

React Native has one of Github’s fastest growing communities, and is also the reason for the formation of developer communities on platforms like Reactiflux, Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. These communities help developers all around the world to help identify problems, find quick solutions for their issues and provide recommendations to enhance the React Native framework. Furthermore, React Native releases regular updates to optimize the framework making it a reliable choice for app development.

Open source
Cross-platform, Flexible and Easy Maintenance
Cross platform

One of the main reasons the technological world is inclined towards React Native development is that React Native apps are scalable and low-maintenance, making apps extraordinarily flexible and easy to maintain. Using a declarative UI paradigm with JavaScript, ReactJS integrates with the native UI library and native APIs, allowing the iOS and Android app to share the same code.

Saves Development Time and Cost

Prior to the release of React Native, you would need a SWIFT developer and a Java developer to create apps for the App Store and Google Play. However with React Native, you no longer need multiple language specialists, saving both time and cost. All that you require is a JavaScript developer who is well-versed in API integration, UI libraries and hybrid app development models to help you develop apps that compile down to native code. Furthermore, you do not need to recode two codebases (Swift and Java) when updating the apps because both operating systems can run on the same code base.

App Stability
App Stability

Apps built using React Native framework are stable because React Native uses the simplified binding feature. This means that you will need to modify the state of the object you wish to change before updating it. Moreover, the use of native APIs results in apps performing more efficiently.

Fast Performance

React Native uses native mobile UI components, not WebView components, providing a more optimized user experience. The code and elements are already on the device, as opposed to a WebView where they need to be fetched every time using an HTTP request.

Native application processors are typically central processing units (CPU) but React Native apps align with graphic processing units (GPU) to integrate user interface smoothly. Compared to other cross-platform mobile frameworks, the code compiles quickly and applications load and run faster.

Fast Performance

React Native uses Facebook’s React JavaScript library for user interfaces therefore allowing for the high performance feature of React to be incorporated into React Native as well. Additionally, React Native can easily integrate 3rd party plugins with your mobile apps without putting too much pressure on the main memory. Such efficient integration makes mobile apps fast and responsible since most of the code is used during runtime.

Code Readability

For those who are new to React Native, rest assured that React’s strength is in its easy readability. It does not have a long list of specific concepts that developers need to familiarize with and is easy to learn even for a junior developer.

Code Reusability

By using React Native, developers can essentially use the same code for deployment on both Android and iOS, increasing efficiency and reducing the time and cost of the development process while providing the complete benefits of a native application. React Native does not force developers to work in Xcode for iOS or Android studio for Android; it allows developers to use whichever text editor they prefer.

Developing mobile apps with React Native significantly reduces development and lifecycle costs. According to estimates, 90% of the code is reused between Android and iOS. Research estimates that design time is reduced by approximately 30% while using React Native.

Code Reusability
Live Reload

React Native has significantly improved itself over the years compared to native programming languages such as Swift and Kotlin. The framework has a feature which allows developers to see code changes while they’re making them without having to schedule a deployment on iTunes Connect or Google Play Store after every modification. The framework permits the upgrade of specific parts, while keeping the rest of the app unchanged.

Furthermore, many organizations are switching to React Native because the framework can push app updates to the user’s phone directly, rather than going into the update cycle of the app store.


React Native uses Flexbox to create design layouts for apps. Flexbox enables developers to create the exact same layout for all platforms without having to go through the inconvenience of having to create the same layout procedure for different platforms.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, React Native also uses debugging tools and error reporting for a faster and more efficient testing process.
