Benefits of this technology
Unlike hybrid cross-platform frameworks such as PhoneGap, which renders code via WebView, React Native does it using native APIs.
- Renders some code components with native APIs
- Active and supportive community of developers, Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native.
- Facebook, Instagram, Airbnb, UberEats are just a few apps taking advantage of React Native possibilities
React Native is now a proven technology used by large companies as well as small startups. It gives you option to concurrently create apps that will work on different platforms, significantly reducing time and cost needed for development and maintenance.
Where we would not use it
For applications requiring heavy computation, you’re better off sticking to native development. Some of the most up to date APIs may be unavailable as it takes a while for React Native to fully synchronise with iOS or Android SDKs updates.
