Mobile App development: Is React Native worth it?
Short Development phase
React Native mobile app development facilitates the process of developing mobile apps much faster. Being an open source project, it has a lot of components available easily and also has a dedicated developer community who keep supporting React and handle any issues. Statistics have shown that development time decreases by 30% while using open source components. Development times can be drastically decreased using Redux which is a state Management Tool.
Existence of a Vibrant ecosystem
Cross platform flexibility
Most of the React APIs are cross-platform oriented, which means that at least one component will work on either IOS or Android. In certain circumstances, developers need not be platform specific as design implications are different for Android and IOS. During these situations, React provides Platform module and platform specific file extensions. The platform module can easily detect the OS in which the app is running, this can be used later to define platform specific implementations. Platform specific file extensions will allow the developer to define files for specific platforms. React can automatically pick up the correct file depending on the OS the app is running on.
More efficient Native App Development
Native app development is normally associated with lack of efficiency, less productivity and a slower deployment time. React Native development services is more about getting the speed and agility of web app development mixing it up with the hybrid space with native results. Facebook’s React JS UI library for web applications also comes under the React Native’s Hood. React Native makes React JS ‘s app performance and DOM abstraction even better. It’s simplified and easy programming methods have lead to the evolution of hybrid mobile application development.
Faster growth and more preferred among developers
Third party compatibility and Less memory usage
Third party compatibility means developers need not rely on a web view for certain functions. For instance, if you are integrating Google map functionality to your app, React Native will let you link the plugin with a native module. Therefore it’s necessary to link the map up with the device’s functions like zoom, rotate and compass while utilizing less memory and effectively loading faster.
If User interface is your concern, then React Native is the solution
React Native is definitely a boon to the current generation of Java script developers. It’s ease of development, quality of the apps built with it and the abundance of richness in its platform and ecosystem has been favorable for creating mobile apps. The future of mobile app development looks promising under React Native.
