In the earlier blog, we have already discussed the existence of React Native, both React as well as React Native consists of respective benefits then why we should choose React Native instead of React? To answer this question, let’s have a bit of discussion about the key benefits of React Native.
Some of the key benefits of React Native are as follows:
Originally developed by Facebook, React Native is used to designing the interfaces of the application. At the initial phase, React Native was accessible only with the iOS platform but now it is able to render mobile UIs for Android platform as well. It uses native components that compile directly to the machine language of its own device. Rather than the awkward and slow user experience, it provides all the benefits of Native application.
Code Reuse and Code Saving
With the help of React Native, one can use the same code for the deployment process on iOS as well as on Android. This result in a huge saving of development time, cost and even the efforts can be cut by half. Based on the recent calculation it has been found that 90% of the code can be reused between Android and iOS. Hence, React Native is way far better than React.
Being a next big step after React, React Native enables us to create powerful mobile applications. It has come up with an amazing feature of live reload where you can immediately see the result of the latest change that you have made in the code. If you have two windows opened at the same time, you will be able to immediately see the effect of the modification that you have done.
React Native architecture is the best suited for mobile devices where it makes use of the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) while on the other hand native platforms are more CPU intensive. On comparing it with hybrid technologies, React Native is the best option for the selection.
An advantage that had been mentioned earlier for React can also be discussed here too. There is a common advantage of both the platforms where the intuitive and modular interface makes it look so simple for the developers to combine it with another project. As a result, this increases the flexibility within the team where the developers can perform the necessary upgrades and updates to web applications. As far as the testing is concerned, testers require less duration to understand the programming logic for building the appropriate testing scenarios. Hence, this leads to saving a valuable duration of time.
In the above section, we have discussed certain key benefits of React Native. Being a technology with innumerable advantages, we can’t discuss all the possible benefits in a one go. There are many advantages which are left to be mentioned. If you are eager to know about all the benefits of React Native, you may reach out to us at [email protected].
