10 Amazing Apps Built With React Native

What is React Native?

React Native is an open-source JavaScript framework for developing mobile applications that can run natively on both iOS and Android. Developed by Facebook, it is based on ReactJS and offers the ability to share libraries and re-use code between operating systems, thereby dramatically simplifying the app development process.


By using React Native, developers can build web apps that can share the same logic as mobile apps, creating a seamless user experience. With React Native, there is no need to maintain multiple codebases or hire developers that are proficient in both Android and iOS; the framework allows a team of JavaScript developers to work on a single codebase.


What are the advantages?


Unlike Cordova or Iconic, React Native uses the host platform’s set of native UI elements instead of a combination of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS—which is a method that requires a lot of effort to fine-tune in terms of look and feel, and becomes outdated too easily. React Native translates markup into mobile native UI elements and maintains high performance by working separately from the main UI, so that capability is never sacrificed.

Also, the React Native update cycle is the same as React’s, so when changes are made, all views are re-rendered seamlessly.
