Experience the speed & reliability of React Native development

React Native is a framework based on JSX (an extension to JavaScript), ES6 based syntax, state and props. It is a JavaScript framework for writing real, natively rendering mobile apps for platforms such as iOS and Android. It is based on React which is Facebook’s JavaScript library for building user interfaces, but it targets mobile platforms instead of targeting the browser. The fundamental process of React Native is to put together UI building blocks with the help of JavaScript and React to create a react app for mobiles.

React Native allows to you build cross-platform, stable applications for iOS and Android with efficiency and speed.

React Native App Development

Features

Community-driven

The development of the React Native framework actually started as a hackathon effort in 2013, responding to the need of the developer community: it was looking for a mobile alternative that would combine the advantages of mobile app development with the power and agility of the native React environment. This resulted in React Native, a framework created by Facebook, and supported and continuously pushed forward by the development community. There are considerable advantages to using such a community-driven environment like the availability of a huge team of enthusiastic JS and native developers willing to share their knowledge and expertise and huge catalogues of available components.

Maximum code reuse & cost reduction

By using React Native, you can use the same code for deployment on iOS as well as on Android. This means substantial savings in development time and cost. According to recent calculations, about 90% of the code can be reused between Android and iOS.

Live reload

React Native features an interesting extra that you will not find in native frameworks: the ‘live reload’ feature, enabling you to immediately see the result of the latest change that you have made to the code. If you have two windows opened – one containing the code and the other showing a mobile screen as a result of the code – you can immediately see the effect of what you have changed in one screen, on the other screen.

Strong performance for mobile environments

React Native architecture is very well tuned to mobile devices. It makes use of the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), while native platforms are more ‘CPU (Central Processing Unit) intensive’. Compared to hybrid technologies – which was the only option for cross-platform in the past – React Native is superfast.

Modular and intuitive architecture similar to React

The modular and intuitive interface makes it very easy for other developers to delve into someone else’s project and build upon it. This increases flexibility within a development team, and makes it easier to create updates and upgrades to applications. Additionally, testers will need less time to understand the programming logic and build appropriate testing scenarios.

Known for Optimal Performance

Undeniably, React Native is a real asset when it comes to improving performance through native control and modules.
