Introduction

In the thriving world like that of ours, technology is changing and developing every minute. The applications which were previously used have gone obsolete, and new ones are overpowering them

In this world of absolute development, mobile apps play an essential role. Where initially, apps were built natively for iOS and Android, then came the hybrid technology to create apps of both the platforms together. However, both native and hybrid had their pros and cons.

Then came the react-native technology, which changed the map of app development and steered a storm in the market. Here in this blog, we shall talk about how react-native can be better than native and hybrid apps.

What is React Native?

React native is the mobile app development framework, which is used to make both iOS and Android apps in one go. The apps so created are half hybrid and half native, taking the merits of both. Standard code is generated for both the OS by using JavaScript and can be extended with specific codes.

The statistics show that with such a favourability of React Native, it has acquired the third position in the global market after Node.js and TenserFlow having more than 13.1% of the global market share.

Merits of React native

  • Cost of the app development

The cost of mobile app development when it comes to React Native is much lower than when it is being developed with a hybrid framework. The costs incurred are the expenses of the components needed to be developed, the number of developers and the total number of working hours.

When it comes to development with React Native, not only the components to be developed are reduced, there is a decrease in several developers required and gradually brings a reduction in the working hours as well.

Where on the one hand, while developing the native/ hybrid apps, the developers needed to be proficient in many languages, including Java, Swift, C#, etc. But when it comes to React Native, a developer needs to be proficient in JavaScript, making it almost half the hassle.

Ease of finding developers

With time, the developers have understood the need to shift to the language of React Native and hence, since the launch of this framework, the community of the developers is ever increasing. 

With more human resources present in the market, it is pretty easy to choose from, hence providing ease of finding the developers

UI/UX focussed development

    The way the user interacts with the app is fundamental. It creates a long-lasting impression on the mind of the user and decides the fate of the app in the coming future. Hence, the bottom line remains that a useful UI is utterly essential.

    When it comes to React Native, it tops the chart for providing the most interactive and fascinating user interface. It bears a lot of premade libraries and components which offer exquisite minimalist design language. Moreover, as React Native focusses on JavaScript, it is already known for providing the global standard designs for the app development.

    Third-party plugin support

      When it comes to extending the benefits, no one wants a setback. If a framework allows the use of third party extensions, it is just the cherry on the cake. When it comes to React Native, there is a library of extensions for the customisations. The extensions aim at making things better and smoother in all the verticals. 

      Different libraries are available for various tasks across the React Native development cycle. You can get analytics, link wearables, create intuitive UI’s and almost everything which is manly possible to customise in an app’s environment. React Native is among top 6 most used libraries among developers along with the likes of Unity 3D and Node.js.

      Speed of development

        This time has cut-throat competition, and everyone is in the race to win the place. At this time, if the development of the app is slow, it can take you miles back. Hence, the speed of app development is essential.

        When the apps were to be developed natively, the codes had to be generated separately for both the platforms. This not only increased the complexity of the process but also took a lot of time.

        But, with the oncoming of React Native, the app development has gone faster and the time used to develop them has reduced almost to a half. This gives an extent of the market economy’s upper hand to your business.

        Reusability of code

          The most significant advantage of using React Native framework is the reusability of the code. The same code can be reused to make some other similar apps. This not only provides convenience to the development, but also leads to less time usage, and saving of the money.

          Reusability is there in JavaScript, and ReactJS as well.

          Smoother transition from a web app

            If the PWA is made using React, it is elementary to transfer it to a mobile application. The transition so done would be extremely easy and feasible. 

            PWA and React Native have been the two revolutions in the market of web app development and mobile app development, respectively. Merging them into one has proven to provide one of the best results where the former can be changed into the latter with enhanced efficiency and better results.

            With such an ease of transition, React Native has successfully acquired the top position among the number of cross platform mobile frameworks used by the software developers. It holds more than 42% market share under its working.

            Rigorous updates

              The main aim of React Native is the holistic approach towards the improvement. Hence, now and then the apps come with the rigorous updates which improve the efficiency of the app multiple times.

              Where on the one hand this can be as a merit for the application users, some think of it to be extremely displeasing for they have to update the apps again and again. But the end line remains that the app improves and no matter after how much displeasure, they find it joyous while using the updated apps. 

              Conclusion

              The bottom line remains that React Native has been the technology which has revolutionised the concept of mobile app development. Not only does it reduce the cost and time, but it also provides the benefits of SEO, algorithm friendly and out of the box UI/UX.
