1. Rapid App Development
Agility, speedier app development and providing an overall good user experience are the notable advantages offered by React Native. It provides users a native experience. The same code can be easily used for deployment on both iOS and Android platforms, leading to the shortening of the development cycle. This consequently reduces the time and cost of development. The use of React Native brings down the development efforts to a considerable extent without affecting the app’s quality or productivity. Also, the need to hire additional developers gets significantly reduced It is no surprise that cross-platform development is faster that native, considering that you essentially develop 2 or more applications by writing a shared codebase.
In some cases, apps can share as much as up to 99% of their code between the most commonly developed Android and iOS applications. Which, especially for startups, could be a tremendous advantage both time- and budget-wise. You no longer need to decide whether to start with an iOS or an Android app, since you can start with either and then release the second platform in a matter of weeks. That’s what happened with bussr, one of the clients we developed an Android app for. After the MVP finally went live, we were then able to deploye the iOS version within 2 weeks, which wouldn’t have been possible had they decided to develop Kotlin app for Android instead of RN
2.CAN BE COMBINED WITH NATIVE CODE
Developing with React Native is not limited to building separate applications too. Many companies combine it with native code to augment the existing experience for its current users without the need to rebuild already functional mobile applications. Often, companies start re-writing their application from native to cross-platform technology by changing their application piece by piece. And sometimes, companies like Facebook, use React Native to simply enhance their native application with screens written in RN that bring together the best of both worlds.
