Why React Native?

React native is “learn once, write anywhere” type of framework. It allows developers to build cross-platform mobile apps using JavaScript. Thanks to React Native, they can deliver high-quality applications for Android and iOS using one code base. React Native is lightweight and offers great performance, especially for rapidly changing data. What is more, make native development and maintenance more cost-effective and save development time.


React Native developers value the capabilities of this framework primarily for the ability to improve the development process and fast implementation of the application. React Native apps are delivered in a shorter time by using ready-made components that speed up the process.


This also means benefits for React Native development companies. A smaller team of developers is involved in their creation. In fact, JavaScript programmer who can write one code for iOS and Android platform can work on one project. This means you can deliver more, new apps to the market in shorten the time and increase your ROI.


In addition, applications made in React Native technology also provide a simplified user interface design. They have a fast loading time and great responsiveness, runs smoother and takes less space in the device’s memory.
