React Native Benefits
React Native is a young framework created in 2015. Some development tools do not gain as high a level for the long years, when this became one of the most preferred choices among many programmers.
One of the reasons is solving problems that were common before its appearance:
• the iteration period is significantly extended due to code reuse;
• imperative programming has become more intuitive.
More importantly, React Native has become a “clean user interface framework.” It defines the basic components that are needed directly for the UI/UX foundation
In fact, developers around the world have reported that since the advent of React Native, it has become much easier and faster to create mobile applications that are in some way ahead of the demands of modern business.
By offering instant implementation of changes and reducing development costs, it gave more freedom to the programmer. Now a specialist can concentrate more on finding unique approaches than on solving problems of reducing development costs and reducing work time.
Why do companies choose ReactNative
Want a great mobile app? Would you like to get it quickly and not go crazy when you deal with it? Do you need a product for Android and iOS at the same time? Then React Native is required for your company. With it, developers create flexible and productive mobile applications. Here are some advantages of this framework for business:
The App Store and Play Market have more than 2 million applications, indicating a high level of competition. Therefore, one of the factors influencing the choice is the development speed and performance of the application itself.
During development, a specialist can instantly see the changes made. No need to wait for reboot to rebuild the code. Simultaneous development for iOS and Android takes only 10% more time than writing code for only one platform using other frameworks.
The speed of the application itself is also high. This is one of the reasons why Uber or Tesla made their choice in his favor. Cost
Since React Native allows you to develop much faster, you can make a proposal that the cost of the project will be lower. This assumption is true. In addition to the cost of the work itself, with this framework, there are no additional costs for software or license.
Simultaneous development is not the only feature of the framework. With this advantage related the possibility of simultaneous updates. It is important that the same developers can do this, which also reduces costs.
React Native has accessory tools like Code Push. It allows you to update without sending data to the App Store and Play Market, which simplifies the process itself. Also, you can use any back-end language for development like Asp.net
What problems solved React Native
For many years, two platforms have dominated the application development horizon — Android and iOS. Modern companies tend to use the capabilities of both platforms because they have approximately the same number of clients both among Android users and among iOS.
Realization of aspirations was found in hybrid applications. They brought a lot of advantages, reduced development costs, and most importantly - made it possible to reach the audience on various platforms.
But they cannot fully meet all business expectations, especially against the background of the speed of development of current technologies. So, they do not provide sufficient user interaction, can not get the necessary access to hardware and software devices to improve the user experience, and do not meet the requirements of the download speed.
React Native became almost the first framework that solved all these problems at once. User experience
The framework is interface-oriented, compared to other development tools. Thus, applications are more attractive and understandable for any user. Access to devices
Hybrid applications are not designed for a specific operating system, so they cannot access the functionality of the device. React Native can use third-party plug-ins when developing, which solves a similar problem.
This allows you to create applications that have access to a camera, GPS, microphone, contacts, and so on. All this is possible regardless of the device. At the same time, applications load quickly and work stably.
What applications use React Native
One of the best ways to evaluate the capabilities of a development tool is to test projects that already use it. That’s why we made a small list of applications based on React Native.
The purpose of the application is the management of the user's insurance. Target audience is the residents of the UK. With React Native successfully implemented suchfeatures:
• analys is of insurance needs;
• insurance profile check;
• tips on insurance rates;
• storage of insurance documents;
• storing policy information.
This is a tool for organizing work tasks, which has become a good replacement for Excel. With it, all lists can be stored in one place. It combines all the features of spreadsheets, as well as Pinterest visual elements, which makes working with the application more attractive.
React Native helped to organize the main sections of the application, which made it intuitive. Users who chose it as an alternative, today refused of analogs.
Bloomberg provides full access to global business and financial news and market data. The company had a hybrid application, however, after increasing the general interest in the financial market, there were problems with scalability.
React Native helped to realize the analysis of user devices that actively use the application. Thus, the company managed to organize the data flow, eliminating all the “noise” from it.
React Native Efficiency
It is worth mentioning that React Native is an open-source framework. This means that each user can contribute and offer an extension of the functionality of the development environment. Since experienced developers work with React Native, it can provide many unique features for the application.
The framework is easy to combine with native code Java
or Object-C, Swift. If you have an application that needs only refinement, React Native is perfect for this. You do not have to look for a command to write a new application. Enough to hire React Native developers to expand their own.
The Merehead team will help you with setting application requirements. We give a critical assessment of the finished products. It helps to decide whether to develop a new application or just make changes to the existing one. If you are still using hybrid applications or are just starting your business, we are ready to make a contribution to its development.
