Why we chose the React Native framework
Since the initial release, there has been a very steady growth of interest in the framework. According to Google search trends, the interest in React Native continues to climb, while interest in iOS and Android development is declining.
Being technology agnostic scale-up we compared our options before committing our development efforts towards React Native. As with any framework, we had a handful of pros and cons for using the framework.
We simply were not able to ignore all the pros below which nudged us towards making React Native our weapon of choice.
Learn once, write anywhere
With React Native, it is possible to do live updates to our mobile app without going through the App Store approval process (same applies to Google Play store). Combine this with our Scrumban development approach and you’ll be receiving new features and updates faster than ever!
The pros list is much longer than what we have just discussed here. It’s also hard not to mention Hot Reloading and acknowledge that React Native has its own cons list as well.
