What exactly is React Native?

Much attention is given to react native, right? But what is react native, let’s find it out:

React native is a mobile app development platform which is open-source and developed by Facebook. It uses our all time favorite language JavaScript. In those days Facebook was struggling to maintain separate code bases for iOS and Android and it was becoming tiring as the workload was doubled. What started as an internal hackathon project in 2013, became one of the most widely used mobile app development frameworks.

Some popular apps developed using react native.

With its ever rising popularity, following are some of the most famous apps built with react native:

What makes React Native a good fit for developing your mobile app?

React Native market’s share is on a continuous increase. According to statista, React Native is the most popular cross-platform mobile app development framework and 42% of the app developers choose react native. 

Why so many developers and people use react native over other technologies? Some of the reasons are as follows:

  • No need to maintain separate code bases:
    In react native, you create one code base and it works for both the Android and iOS apps. This means no more worries to maintain separate code bases, to have separate developers and no tension about synchronization.
  • Less costly and time saving:
    As the code base is reduced to a great extent, it saves a lot of time to develop the mobile apps. And with the saving of times comes the saving of the cost. Also, as only a single development team is required, the cost is reduced further.
  • A huge community:
    React Native maintains a big community of developers who share their experiences and solutions within the community members. With such a large number of contributors, any problem isn’t left unsolved.
  • Reusable fragments of code:

Business logics and some fragments of code can be shared between the mobile and web, provided you have the web developed with React js. Therefore, it is always recommended to go with React js web if your app is developed with react native.

  • Performance almost like a native app:

Although react native uses JavaScript which is not a mobile app native language but it provides performance almost the same as of the native apps. It also provides benefits such as easy and faster development with an increase in productivity.


If you are thinking of developing an MVP before actually launching an app and are tight on budget and timeline, react native is the best option to go with. With it, your MVP will provide almost equal performance in a much lesser budget and duration. Besides this, react native is ever-growing and until now there is no sign of its stoppage. With all these advantages, we, being a development agency, will highly prefer the utilization of react-native for your app development.
