React Native, a framework for the future of Mobile App Development

If you’re looking to build a mobile app, you’ll be debating which technology you should choose. There are several technologies that work with specific mobile operating systems, however, Facebook introduced React Native as the framework that lets you build mobile apps using only JavaScript. It uses the same design as React, letting you compose a rich mobile UI using declarative components.

Thousands of apps are already build using React Native. Big companies like Facebook, Instagram, Tesla, Uber and many more are using React Native to build their cross-platform mobile apps.

The good thing about React Native is that you can build both iOS and Android app through one codebase, and they don’t differ from apps built on Java, Objective-C or Swift as they use the same fundamental UI building blocks as regular iOS and Android apps. It’s simple to add native code if you need to optimize a few parts of your application. You can build part of your app in React Native and part of your app in native code – that’s how the Facebook app is built. Building a mobile app with React Native means a huge saving in development time and cost. Also the use of JavaScript and React for React Native makes it easier for any web developer to transition into a mobile application developer.

React Native enjoys immense support from developing community, which along with Facebook is continuously investing in its growth and expansive popularity.

“Learn once, write everywhere” is the principle of React Native.
