React Native: Mobile Development Trend

Mobile phones tend to be an indispensable part of our daily life. So it also means that mobile app development has dominated a large scale when it comes to the IT industry. As a result, mobile app trends make businesses pay more attention to this firm to offer their customer a more superlative User Interface (UI) and satisfied User Experience (UX). Traditionally, developing an app that is compatible with multi Operation systems (OS) is used to be a barrier. Hence, React Native is created to tackle that problem and accelerate the programming process.

 

React Native is a gift to help you create real and exciting mobile apps. But first, to have a thorough look at React Native, let’s find out what is Native App, the predecessor of React Native.

 

Native app

A native application is a software program developed for a particular Operating System, platform, or device.

For example, in IOS, we have some of its native apps such as Appstore, iTunes Store, Safari,... with Android, we got CH Play, Android Auto, Tasker,... Or more familiar, each of our phones all have at least some native apps like Camera, Photo, Music, Message, Calendar,...

There are two main mobile OS platforms that every business or developer refers to use for programming include iOS (Apple) and Android (Google). However, each Native app is developed in the code required for a particular OS. For example, iOS is written with Objective-C or Swift, while Android-native apps are developed in Java.

 

For that reason, React Native appears to be a solution for a tool that helps developers program both Operating Systems but in one coding language and workspace.


 

React Native

React Native is a popular mobile app development framework that allows you to build natively-rendered mobile apps for both iOS and Android OS on the Javascript codebase. 

 

React Native was just released by Facebook as an open-source project in 2015. But in just a couple of years, React Native has become one of the best mobile app development solutions. For example, we can take a look at some outstanding apps that have React Native base.

 

Facebook

Facebook might be the most popular React Native app because it is the creator of this programming and is the main force behind its development.

Facebook has its single product development team and used it to develop both iOS and Android versions. Also, React Native can come into virtual reality due to the new relation of Facebook’s Metaverse.

Skype 

In 2017, Skype announced that they completely use React Native for building their mobile app and also desktop app. This is a proper change because Skype used to suffer from a few errors and issues on the older platform. Skype now has a more stable system and more amazing conversation sections than ever.

Instagram 

It is not surprising to us, because Instagram is an app owned by Facebook. But a large number of users on this platform show us that React Native is such an effective framework that contributes to the success of this well-known social media.

Why React Native is a trend in the App Development Industry?

 

Convenience

Thanks to React Native, developers now just have to program on the only one code language that adapts on both Android and iOS. So that also means that they will take less time and budget on developing a second app for another OS. We can say that React Native is like a bridge that connects the application world.

 

Use the language you already know

React Native uses JavaScript as its code library, which already got a popular position in the app development language field.

So in case, a developer has never used React Native before, with some self-education and base JavaScript knowledge they can catch up with React Native quickly. Or even if they have learned JavaScript before, this might be an easier path for them than tradition, because JavaScript has a large community, which we will mention upcoming.

 

Large developer community 

JavaScript is a coding language that has taken a prominent place in programming languages. From that, if any developer gets a problem while developing an app, then they can look for support in this mature community. There will always be someone who’ll be able to help us, but if your issue is a big burden that can be fixed, we believe after a period, it can be a different story.


 

Is React Native good for your project?

After discovering some of React Native's benefits, we have just witnessed how Reactive Native helps other businesses get success. But how React Native can help our app development project?

 

Save time and money

This is one of the first reasons to mention when we talk about its first benefit. And as we mentioned above, this also is the reason that proves why this framework became so popular. If you need to develop an app for both iOS and Android, React Native is the best choice to short out the programming stage. It can save you time and money for a second app with several open-source libraries that your developers will not need long to get to grips with it.

 

Create ideal mobile apps

React Native is an ideal development direction for mobile apps due to its responsive user interface and stable system. The quality and its function are clear because of its prominent position on the application market, many app developers utilize this platform to build an app as a required tool.

 

Add third-party plugins

React Native also allows you to easily add third-party plug-ins and APIs, including maps and payment systems. This creates more extended options and a better experience.

 

React Native Vision

“React Native vision will reach beyond the imagination. The new partnership with desktop and VR teams at Facebook are the best examples of looking at React Native’s expanding reach. The framework has the benefit of reaching new goals and objectives as per the changing demands.” [Source: reactnative.dev ]
