Since the App Store was born and the entire ecosystem of apps for the iPhone, we have been very interested in the design and development of mobile apps.
In fact for us the appearance of the iPhone was a revolution in the world of development. Suddenly it was affordable to create and sell applications in a store, where the user could buy your product from your mobile simply by pressing a button. This now seems like something everyday, was at that time a revolution that made a call for designers and developers to choose this platform to create and distribute their products.
At that time we started to develop applications for iOS and for third parties, and later forming part of other teams in our company. But gradually we felt a need for a framework for mobile development that can let us focus on multiple platforms, product design, conversion-oriented design and related strategy. Hence we chose React.
React and React Native
React is a tool that we found most comfortable. With the knowledge base of React and Cocoa Touch we were encouraged to enter the world of React Native.
React Native facilitates the creation of native applications, fast, easy to use and responsive. It is definitely a good option when you need to develop large-scale applications with data that changes frequently. React Native can help you face the challenge successfully.
It also has a series of advantages that we have listed below and that have made us embrace it for our next apps projects.
1. The development environment
If you have used Xcode this scene will be familiar: you stop the simulator, you make a small modification of the interface, you launch the simulator again to see the changes, compile, compile, continue compiling, and 1 minute later the simulator starts with the small change made.
Working with React Native allows you to compile once, but the rest of the changes are updated in real time when saving the file. This is a real joy, and they make the development much more continuous and fluid. Also unlike Xcode or Android Studio, you can change it by the IDE or the text editor you prefer.
2. Native code
4. Program once, use it everywhere
No doubt knowing Cocoa Touch makes us a better iOS developer but today React Native has become the ideal solution for most of the customers. Additionally when you Hire React Native Developers you do not need to worry about their expertise in Cocoa Touch or Android as it is nowhere required.
