As much as we hate to admit it, we’re living in a world fueled by price pressure and the need to have everything done yesterday in the most cost-effective way possible.
App development isn’t cheap - it takes developers years to master their craft, and they are always in high demand.
Yet there are ways to keep your costs down.
One way of doing that is choosing React Native as your tech stack. Let’s get more into details.
You only need 1 skill-set
Developers are pricey people, so why complicate things by hiring more than one?
If you want your app to work on Android and iOS, you normally have to hire two separate developers as both operating systems require different sets of code.
The great thing about working in React Native is that you only have to develop one piece of code for your app, and not two as mentioned above.
Less maintenance cost
Building on what we mentioned above, having to maintain two separate apps for Android and iOS can prove costly for companies.
Native apps require updates, but these are a lot easier, faster, and more cost-effective, keeping app maintenance costs relatively low.
You’ve got the power to grow
One great thing about native apps is that they can get listed in the AppStore or Play Store.
In comparison with PWA apps, Apple Store won’t allow you to publish this kind of app.
React, reuse & recycle
One thing that developers love about React is that they’re able to reuse and recycle components they’ve already developed and other libraries developed by wide and fast-growing React Native ecosystem
It’s probably stating the obvious, but this will reduce your costs as developers don’t have to work from scratch.
Another great feature of React Native is that it allows developers to share codebases, which means that they can work faster.
React Native is an Open Source framework with a great number of contributors and a huge community.
If you face any development problem, you can count on almost immediate help and be sure that most of the problems you face been already solved out there.
More than that, if you will plan to hire a new developer for your app, it will be not only easy to find him, but also easy to hand over the development and maintenance to him.
Another benefit of React Native is that it can really accelerate your app performance.
It is using native UI elements and it’s compiled into a native app.
Those of you familiar with marketing best-practices will know that consumers are very impatient, and the slightest issue/delay will cause them to abandon ship.
So, by using React Native, you’ll provide a better customer experience which in turn may increase (or at least may not decrease) your sales.
As you can see, developing your app using React Native has many different benefits.
