5 Reasons React Native is Most Preferred App Dev Framework

It’s no unknown secret that Mobile Apps enable businesses to engage with their customers in the best possible manner and that too 24×7. So, just having an app now is no more a huge competitive advantage, as by all possibility your competitors will also have one of their own. So, the real question is how do you gain back this competitive advantage and take your business to the next level. The answer is” THROUGH DIGITAL INNOVATION”.

With technology evolving at a break-neck speed, it’s imperative for smart businesses to adapt to the most modern and cutting technologies and stay ahead of their competitors. One such technology is React Native when it comes to app development. A product of Facebook, React Native was created with the vision of empowering businesses either be it big or small, to publish robust and seamless mobile app experiences for their customers.

Let’s have a quick snapshot of the biggest companies and unicorns that leverages React Native for powering their mobile apps.

So why is that React Native is on such high demand despite being a Hybrid Framework and not a native one. Let’s dive into the specifics.

1. A great Technology

With the support of Facebook and a huge open-source community, it happens to be a great technology, to begin with. Based on several pieces of research conducted by R&D departments of top tech companies, when compared with native technology React Native has almost equal performance in 3 very important technical aspects of an app.

a. Allocated memory.

b. CPU usage.

c. Energy impact.

And with the ever-growing open source community, the best react native developer minds will only make it even better and powerful.

2. It has great Credibility

Being backed by Facebook to be licensed by MIT, some of the best tech minds have worked on this technology which only increases its appeal. Not to mention some big corporations and unicorns are also using React Native to power their mobile apps. To name a few:





• Gyroscope

Facebook Ads Manager


3. It significantly reduces Development Time

As compared to native apps where you need to write two separate code bases, React Native saves development time by a whopping 30%-35%. It’s a single code base for both the platforms and then compiled into separate Android and iOS apps.

4. It reduces costs and helps to improve the bottom line

The huge savings in development time only leads to a significant reduction in expenditure when it comes to app development. Also, having a single code base makes it more economical to maintain and scale the application. Not only does this reduce costs, but it also enables businesses to invest the savings in other critical areas.

5. It offers wonderful and Native like User Experience

One of the biggest factors for the success of React Native is that does all the above while ensuring, the apps powered by it offers robust and seamless user experience like Native Apps. In fact, many technology companies are using React Native framework to power their app UI’s on top of native technologies like swift.

So, is it the right call?

While there are no major differences in React Native and Native app technologies in performance and user experience, many tech minds also believe that for more complex apps Native technologies like Swift and Android is the preferred option. However, one huge aspect which goes in favor of React Native is that almost saves 30%-35% budget in comparison to native apps, which is a big saving.
