It was the summer of 1983 in Aspen at the International Design Conference when the legendary Steve Jobs predicted that “software would be downloaded over the phone.” It could not have been more prophetic. Applications or apps as it is called, trace back its history to The Psion Organizer and later to the Apple App Store. The iconic mobile phone maker, Apple introduced the first 500 apps in 2008, through its App Store. Since then, we have seen exponential growth in the usage of mobile apps. As per Statista, the total number of mobile application downloads worldwide was as much as 218 billion in 2021.
Top reasons to choose React Native for Mobile App Development
Save time and money
The biggest advantage of React Native is that developers do not need to write codes separately for the iOS and Android platforms, reducing the cost of building applications considerably.
Faster mobile app development
React Native offers a key feature called ‘Hot Reload’, that provides a real-time preview of the codes written by the developers. Any changes in the code have an immediate effect, which also aids in making the app bug-free and taking necessary trouble shooting measures in case you encounter a problem. The feature lets you make selective changes rather than reloading the whole application. Whereas, the ‘Live Reload’ feature reloads the entire app after tweaks are made.
Third-party plug-in support
Large community of React Native Developers
The React Native open library is among the top three most used libraries, which helps the developers keep up with the recent developments and trends. You can seek help from developers on Reddit and StackOverflow, to overcome glitches or simply get guidance on codes.
Most of the popular testing tools like Jest, Enzyme, Chai, and Mocha are available readily that help software engineers to write and test nearly bug-free codes.
Easy user interface
A declarative style of writing codes, which addresses the question of what the program must do instead makes React Native flexible and understandable for developers. The pre-built declarative components, such as Picker, Button, Slider, Switch help you to create an attractive user interface. It also offers the ability to make your own components with TouchableNativeFeedback and TouchableOpacity.
Modular architecture lets you create separate modules for each functionality. The advantage is that different tasks based on functionality can be assigned to team members, and one can view or work on each other’s projects. The intuitive modular architecture is beneficial in quick upgrades and updates as required. In addition, the modular architecture allows you to use APIs (Application Programming Interface) that work both with web and mobile.
Easy to learn
Low memory utilization
The React Native mobile applications generally use very low space on all the platforms due to cross-bridge linking. The cross-bridge linking offers the benefit of executing the codes even during the run time of the application.
All React Native apps provide at par Native experience for the end users. The components of React Native map 1:1 with native development. It helps developers to build interfaces faster and provide a genuine native feel. As the framework uses ReactJS and UI library, it seamlessly transfers virtual DOM thereby improving the performance of the app with a simple programming process.
