Top 10 Reasons To Choose React Native For Hybrid Apps

In this digital era, technology changes with a blink of an eye. When it comes to apps, we are very much aware of the notifications. Here we’ll discuss about the React Native for Hybrid app development. Previously, biggest challenges that app developers faced was before developing apps that work well on various platforms like iOS and Android. But now with the react native app development, one can create separate apps for ios and android both. React native framework is a rising mobile solution and has the ability to build high-performance future proof native mobile app for your business.

Why React Native For Hybrid App Development?

Previously, for app development, one must adopt for either building a hybrid app with HTML5 or coding for two different native apps that perform the same tasks in Android and iOS. But, now, things are not same. After launching of React Native, all things become simple and convenient. And hence the following reasons justify why React Native is better for Hybrid app development.

React Native is an open source framework developed by Facebook which introduced the concept of web development into mobile app building by using Javascript. They don’t differ from apps built on Java, Objective-C or Swift and they use the same UI building blocks as native iOS or Android apps. But with React Native, building mobile app is more faster and less expensive. Let us see some features of React Native that makes it best for mobile app development.

Top 10 Reasons To Choose React Native For Hybrid Apps-

1. Improved UI/UX-
React Native is about mobile UI. Comparing React Ntive with AngularJS or MeteorJS, it has been found that it looks more like a Javascript library than a framework. As React native does not have UI components library of its own, it uses third-party libraries. React native material design, react native elements, native base and Shoutem are some similar UI libraries that are available for user. Also, user interfaces designed in React Native are more responsive, reduces load time and provide smoother feel.

2. Cross-Platform-
Component describes its own appearance in react and it handles the rendering for you. Clean abstraction layer separates these two functions. To render web components, React uses standard HTML tags. This abstraction layer call as “bridge”, that allows React Native to invoke the actual rendering APIs on iOS and Android. On iOS, that implies your React Native components render to real UI Views, while on Android, they’ll render to native Views. Rather than compiling down to native code, React Native takes your app and runs it using host platform’s Javascript engine, without blocking main UI thread. One can get the benefits of native performance, animations and behavior without need to write Objective-C or Java. Other cross-platform frameworks like Cordova or Titanium, can never match this level of native performance or appearance.

3. Performance-
Comparing native versus react performance the mobile applications made on Swift versus React-Native were practically indistinguishable in their UI somehow swift found little edge over react native. Estimating both of the application’s CPU, GPU, and Memory during the tasks, the applications are also almost identical in how they perform. Native won in CPU category, React native won in GPU category and React native won in Memory category. Native makes use of CPU more efficiently than React-Native. React native uses GPU slightly more effectively than Native, and that React native uses memory more effectively than Native does. React native wins in two of three categories.
