With having experience of developing apps with React Native, Umbrella IT would like to share its outlook on why mobile development with React Native is the future of hybrid app development.
Why React Native
According to Google Trends, demand in React Native development clearly gets higher with time:
There are reasons for it:
The efficiency of the framework is proved by Umbrella IT’s personal experience. For this reason, 42% of Umbrella IT’s cross-platform apps are built using React Native.
As practice shows, React Native is particularly effective when creating Uber-like services. Umbrella IT has already developed a taxi service app where its architecture and users interaction algorithms were one of the main challenges as it is in similar projects. Combined with Socket.io as an additional server-side and mobile client technology, React Native simplified the process of creating native control elements, which reduced the term of development.
How It Works
React Native work can be organized in two ways:
In this case, neither Xcode nor Android Studio is required. The Expo layer is not that flexible as native code so the setup options are limited. Yet this approach is highly effective when a project includes complex graphics.
React Native allows to create a fully-fledged interface that considerably reduces the development time. In case the individual approach to the platform is required, the code can be written separately for each platform.
The second way is quite a common practice. Actually, quite recently Umbrella IT was working on the project for informing users of important events within the certain area. The basic part of the app was written in React Native, but the app also required a highly accurate GPS tracking which could only be ensured through the native modules developed independently for each platform.
If you have any questions left regarding mobile app development or if you are looking for a reliable team to develop a project based on React Native - don’t hesitate, ask Umbrella IT.
