Not always something that looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, is a duck. Sometimes it's a swan! And React Native is clearly a swan. 

You already know that you want to develop a mobile app for your business, but don't know how to get started? 

When we talk about native applications, each technology has its own needs, We will have two developments, with two different teams, with different technical capabilities and different budgets. So, the questions start to arise: what do I start with, Android or iOS? Or can I do both? How will it affect my customers if I do only one? Will I need a bigger budget if I want both of them? 

With trumpets and fireworks, React Native enters the scene.

What Is React Native?

React Native is an open source platform that allows the development of cross-platform mobile applications. This means that the developed application will be accessible on both Android and iOS with a single development. 

This is possible because, although it looks and feels like a native platform, the code is written in JavaScript. Swan, right?

Platform Benefits

It is clear that the main obvious benefit is to have a mobile application that is accessible from the beginning, for all customers who want to use it, whether they prefer Android or iOS. The good news is that React Native offers, in addition: 

  • Speed in development.
  • Cost efficiency.
  • Easy integration with external plugins on all operating systems.

In addition to the advantages over native Android or iOS applications, it is good to know that React Native also has a good loading speed and that it invests in continuous platform development. 

Most of the time, when we talk about developing a mobile application, React Native is the obvious choice, and now we hope it is clear why.
