So what’s the solution here?
React Native – is the solution. React Native has emerged as a perfect solution to code brilliant apps and has been rapidly transforming the world of mobile.
Here are 6 major reasons why React Native is going to be the future of mobile application development.
Very few of us know that originally React Native was developed for building iOS mobile apps only but looking at its amazing features, Facebook rolled out its Android support too.
Having said this, now React Native has the ability to build mobile apps for both Android & iOS through a single codebase only.
As a result, when you choose React Native, you save a lot on your mobile app development cost.
#2 Native functionality
The mobile apps that are developed using React Native are as good as any native app. Your app developers don’t need to compromise on usability or integrate with any 3rd party solution.
Therefore, we can safely say that React Native is definitely a complete solution to building a robust mobile application.
So, you don’t need to wait for hours or sometimes days to reflect new updates on your applications. It can be done instantly, in the case of React Native.
As a result, your users don’t need to face any issues with the older versions of your application because they can get the live updates seamlessly & instantly.

#5 Simple to Learn
React Native is really easy to learn for newbie developers since it relies on language fundamentals.
#6 Positive Developer Experience
React Native, being developer friendly, receives great support from the app developers.
All the app developers who develop mobile applications using React Native get a positive experience as they don’t need to through the tedious process of re-building and deployment.
Whenever there are any changes made to the application, the developers can check them even while the app is running, thereby eliminating the need to restart.
By using flexbox layout to generate app layouts for both iOS & Android, React Native has minimized the task to learn just one layout engine to develop on both platforms and the web.
