Mobile application development, whenever we hear this 3 phase keyword there comes two major ecosystems, Android, and iOS. To develop an application in both the technologies Andriod and iOS, we need skillful experts in Swift or Objective-C, Java, Android SDK, Cocoa Touch. However, along with libraries and other testing tools the above-mentioned list keeps growing.

Mobile application developers managing two codebase on these two platforms and developing world-class application experiences on both these platforms and adding up new features to the product effectively, in a defined timeline and Optimizing the Product in-line with latest SDK releases of both the ecosystems. It takes a long time period to develop the application.

So let’s simply do have a look at the promising features of React Native and how it is going to reduce our complexity in two types of the codebase and the React native ways to develop mobile applications easier and faster ways.

Build Mobile Applications That’s Indistinguishable From An App

By making use of React Native, we build a real mobile application that’s indistinguishable from an app using Objective-C or Java. React Native uses exact iOS and Android UI Components and just put those UI Components together using JavaScript and React. React Native apps are gracious and responsive.

World-Class Application Experiences On Both Ios And Android

React Native enables us to build world-class application experiences on both iOS and Android platforms using a consistent experience only in JavaScript and React. Under the hood, React Native uses JavaScript engine of the mobile environment and execute our JavaScript there.






Faster Updation

Everyone might go through these days, where we need to update our App with new features or bug fixes instantly. Especially with iOS there comes review process which may take at least two days. Recently, Apple has allowed us to update the app over the air using JavaScriptCore without going through the App Store review process again. So using CodePush, we can deploy our App new features directly to user devices.

Reusability

With React Native enable us to share Application logic across the two platforms which means, we can nearly reuse 70% of code between iOS and Android. It’s worth mentioning, that Facebook stated that their Ad Manager application has 87% of code reuse across the two platforms.

Native Module

At One point of time for some module in your app, if you intended to write platform-specific code in order to make use of platform-specific API, you can simply and just do that too in React Native by writing “native module” a bridging between the host platform and your JavaScript code. It’s very simple to write a native module. Facebook has clearly documented on this.

Wrapping Up

We are well established IT consulting firm with 85+ geeks who are always seeking for the latest technology in the market. We at Bacancy Technology have React Native (+Redux) developers with 1+ year of experience on iOS and Android (since the launch Oct 2015).

We have already published React Native apps to the stores (iOS & Android both). Used a single repo for React Native and React for the web with common Redux Reducer for both the parts. So, what are you waiting for? We are happily ready to serve you, whether there is any query or any doubts we are always beside you.
