Mobile app development as an industry is expected to generate $188.9 billion revenue across the globe in 2020 through app stores and in-app advertising. Users are now hoping for faster, better and more innovative apps. While designing quality native apps is a highly time-consuming job, developing cross-platform apps can happen quickly, when the quality can be compromised a bit. React Native is today a popular platform for developing brilliant apps that can rapidly transform the world of mobile.
Understanding React Native
Jeff Meyerson, the champion of the podcast Software Engineering Daily, says React Native will easily overtake the survive the most competitive mobile app development niche and continue to take over a bigger share of the mobile ecosystem. Here we discuss the reasons why React Native can become the future of mobile app development.
Unique advantages of React Native
React Native is highly cross-platform compatible. Though originally developed foriOS, it was extended to support Android as well. Today the majority of React Native APIs are cross-platform enabling the developers build both iOS and Android apps on this platform.
Amazing native functionality
Live updates instantly
The developers can push the updates directly to the user’s phones instead of routing them through the app store update cycle. Hence the users can enjoy the advantages of the updated versions rather immediately and need not deal with the problems connected to the older versions.
Highly user friendly
Incredible developer experience
React Native can assure a robust developing environment assuring a great experience for the developers. For beginners, it enables modifications and implementations possible even when the app is running without the need to restart it.
Support by Facebook
Facebook engineering assures great support to React Native. There is a massive developing community behind React Native. This community is continuously improving the framework by setting futuristic goals and promising a bettering technology.
