Why React Native Could Gain Rapid Popularity Along With Credibility?

From commencing as Facebook’s internal hackathon project of 2013 to being one of the most popular frameworks today, React Native has developed and matured very quickly. Backed by support from Facebook, Instagram and enthusiastic developer community, its overall ecosystem is very strong. Hence; continuous research, developments and enhancements are leading it to even better state of soundness as a technology tool. Following are few of the reasons that have made React Native Development a prevailing and well adapted trend.

Learning React Native: Building Native Mobile Apps

[1] A cost effective and time saving framework for high performing apps: Single code base for iOS and Android along with support for hybrid apps

Reusable code

→Cross platform applications: React Native enables you to write efficient code compatible with both iOS and Android as the underlying framework does not differentiate between two of them. As a result, you just write the code for one and get two native apps.

→Moreover there is more than enough resilience for creation of hybrid apps when you need your app to be partially native and partially of mobile web view

→These characteristics make React Native Apps Development a time saving and cost effective process. Up to some extent, they have accelerated React Native’s fast adaption.

→React Native is used by several market leaders including Facebook, Instagram, Airbnb, Walmart and Bloomberg. It adds the credibility and reliability to this open source framework

React Native – Building Mobile Apps with JavaScript

[2] A developer friendly technology: Easy learning curve – JavaScript ecosystem advantage – Reusable code

React Native single code

→When you look forward to build a React Native Apps, the learning curve is comparatively easy due to flexibility of Javascript. Additionally, when you use React based technology platform, there are more possibilities to share code among your web and native apps for API requests, GraphQL queries, state management etc. Therefore you can minimize the irregularities and bugs across applications.

→With React Native you can access JavaScript ecosystem comprised of versatile modules. So it becomes really very simple to add third party modules to the native app without any worrying about additional package managers or target SDK compatibility.

→Flexibility to reuse the code enables developers to create better user interface as well as to explore the possibilities of innovation in a time saving mode

Furthermore, simplified User Interface for mobile applications along with Live Reloading and Hot Reloading functionalities aimed to faster interactions enables the development of high performance React Native Apps

Fully native controls are another attractive part of React Native Mobile App Development leading to effective user experience and smooth operation of the application. Native controls are even more useful when the applications are animation rich. Less memory usage and speedy loading is also amazing attribute.

React Native for iOS Development


The primary phenomenon for React Native was ‘Write Once, Use Everywhere’ and it has been executed very successfully as well. A steadily increasing rise in the number of applications developed using React Native is another evidence of its capabilities. Many well established companies are switching to React Native with positive expectations and their success is inspiring others to switch. Still, it is in the young technology and it has got many surprises of offer in future, I believe.
