React Native - get omni-channel application with (almost) one piece of code

Mobile traffic overtook web traffic in 2014, with the overwhelming majority of mobile traffic coming from apps rather than mobile browsers. Having said that, desktop web traffic is not going out of fashion any time soon - above 70% of internet users still visit their favourites both through their mobile devices and desktop browser. But that doesn’t necessarily mean, that you have to pay full price for the development and maintenance of three independent user interfaces - web, iOS and Android. With React Native we can offer your a significantly cheaper and faster solution.

Why you should make your app in React Native?

Android and iOS at one go

React Native is a JavaScript framework, designed to write native mobile applications for iOS and Android. It’s based on React, the popular JavaScript library for building responsive web user interfaces. To cut long story short: React Native is a JavaScript-based toolbox, that enables web programmers to write mobile interfaces using tools they already know. What’s more, much of the code can be reused from one platform to another - this greatly reduces the time and cost required to produce both applications.  

Native means native

What is most important - React Native mobile apps ARE NOT hybrid apps. Hybrid applications are, basically, web applications embedded in the fullscreen browser. They are relatively cheap, but that solution brings together trade-offs: slower performance and lack of built-in native functions. This is important, since we should remember, that 79% of mobile users report, that they would only retry an app once or twice if it disappointed them the first time. That makes React Native applications are the golden mean. While the app code is written in JavaScript, React Natives bridge triggers the native rendering APIs in Objective-C (for iOS) and Java (Android) respectfully. That means Real Native apps offer final users the delightful native experience they enjoy so much.

Web synergies

React Native gains even more power when our team of developers at 3e Software House use it with the popular web combo React.js+Redux. We vigorously recommend using this environment to create web interfaces. And web interfaces are still very important, regarding the fact, that above 70% of internet users still visit their favourites both through their mobile devices and desktop browser. Whilst using React.js+Redux, Redux retains its role as state container, it stores and “broadcasts” all the changes in your application generated by the user. For example in  an online shopping application - when the user adds a product to the shopping basket, information is stored in Redux. React libraries, that means React.js for the web and React Native for both mobile platforms “listen” to those changes and render changes in the respective GUIs. Following that approach our coders can reuse at least 60% of the application code for all the three platforms.
