Mobile App Development with React Native & its Advantages
What Is React Native?
In addition to that, since most of the code that you write can be shared between various platforms, React Native makes it easy to develop applications for both Android and iOS at the same time.
The framework presently supports both iOS and Android, and has the ability to expand to future platforms as well. In this write-up, we’ll briefly touch on both iOS and android React Native app development along with its advantages for developers.
Benefits of React Native Development
On the other hand, React Native actually translates your markup to real, native UI elements, utilizing existing means of rendering views on whichever platform you are working with. Also, React works differently from the main UI thread, so your mobile application can maintain its high performance without any sacrifice on capability.
Another note-worthy feature is that the update cycle for React Native is the same as in React: when props or state change, React Native re-renders the views.
The major difference between React Native and React is that during React Native mobile app development, the platform does the re-rendering by leveraging the UI libraries of its host platform, rather than using HTML and CSS markup.
For developers who are accustomed to working on the Web with React, this translates to the fact that you can easily write mobile apps with the performance, look and feel of a native application, while using tools that are already familiar. React Native is quite an improvement over normal mobile development in two other fields as well:
- Developer Experience
- Cross-Platform Development
These are just some of the basic advantages of using React Native for mobile application development. There are quite a few more that we will touch upon later. If you’re looking for a mobile app development company, please contact us.
