Many developers were skeptical of the “new kid” when React was announced in 2011. However, it has proven to be an extremely successful library, with more and more companies, such as Airbnb, Uber, Netflix and Twitter, adopting it for their own products. It became so popular, in fact, that the framework was extended to the mobile universe with React Native.
So What Is React Native?
The fact that React Native has the ability to reuse code allows it to create apps that can run on multiple platforms; it also includes pre-developed components, which speeds up development time and improves cost efficiency. Its reactive UI and component-based approach leads to very enjoyable user experiences; apps can have both simple and complex designs.
Ultimately, despite these few flaws, React Native is a popular framework and one which many developers (and companies) find highly successful in meeting their needs when developing mobile apps.
