Before comprehending why business giants use React Native for app development, let us first understand what React Native is.
React Native is the most popular cross-platform open-source framework for iOS and Android app development.
It is a versatile cutting edge technology used by many mobile application development company professionals.
In today’s technology-dependent world, the more features that you incorporate in your apps such as a superlative UX or a user-friendly UI, will establish how big a target audience you would achieve.
It has a single code for all apps thereby reducing the cost of development. It simplifies the integration process and helps in quick prototyping.
The React Native app development company mainly caters to front-end development creating a highly customized and responsive UX.
Many industrial giants like Facebook, WalMart, Nike, and Uber Eats are known to use React Native for their app development.
Why are big companies using React Native for App development?
Now let us enumerate some of the benefits of React Native that make it the most favored framework for any mobile app development company.
1. Multiple platform solution
2. Low cost
Today technology is changing at a very fast pace. Therefore, rapid upgradation of your App is necessary, with development-to-market time being a critical factor. Since working with React Native is easy, cross-platform app development professionals can create an app much quicker, thereby reducing the development-to-market time considerably. Quick development-to-market time means quicker market entry, which means more revenue. Also, single coding allows for a 50% reduction in the development cost. Future scalability enables a reduction in maintenance and upgradation cost making React Native the most budget-friendly app development technology.
3. Quick prototyping
Single coding reduces the chances of bugging and malware so a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) can be developed faster. It is best to hire React Native app developers to do repeat testing so that the development of the app can occur fast without compromising on the quality of the product. The quick launching of a prototype reduces the development cost by 50%. Prototyping also allows adding extra features that are low costing instead of full interface development. Iteration quickens the QA phase so the development-to-market time is also reduced, which is reflected in the ROI as well.
4. Responsive UX
5. Easy debugging
The reusability of the codes for the two platforms needs only one update. Bug detection becomes much easier and the single upgrade is applicable for both platforms. It is advisable to hire dedicated developers for a quick search of bugs, which can then be fixed easily with a single decision. Prototyping with minimum features makes the testing process much faster, and bug detection becomes easier and quicker. An updated version with the debugging completed can be created rapidly enabling a bug-free robust app in minimum time.
6. Community support
React Native is intuitive in nature which allows mobile application development company professionals to understand the code easily increasing the flexibility of the team. The addition of extra features is possible without going into the whole building process all over again. CodePush is a plugin that allows the updates to get automatically incorporated and reflected while running the app. A pet scan can also be done but its effect will be visible on the running app so a relaunching would not be required. Because of its high scalability, React Native is widely used for big applications. And since the addition of features is so easy, the platform provides a futuristic solution for app development.
A special case study
Let us now see the benefits that a retail giant observed after hiring a mobile app development company to create an app using React Native:
- 95% of the code is shared and no knowledge sharing is required
- Front-end code can be shared and business logic can be shared with a web application
- Over-the-Air updates can be done and App Store approval is not needed
- Time-to-market is very fast and both platforms can be launched simultaneously
- Performance is similar to native apps and automation can run on all platforms
- Animations can be done very smoothly as the code is first converted to native views
Few final words
React Native is the best framework for cross-platform app development. But the choice depends on the type of app you need.
If you have a budget constraint or you need a quick entry into the market, React Native is the better alternative for your app development.
If you want a user-friendly hybrid app with native features, in that case as well React Native is preferred. With benefits more apparent than limitations, React Native is the most popular framework creating a huge market for itself.
