Benefits of Using React for your Mobile App Development


Selecting a mobile application development framework that suits your business requirements is a challenging task. It is essential for developers to evaluate multiple options and select a framework that fulfills their project requirements as comprehensively as possible. 


Oodles Technologies software developers use React Native framework in creating most of their mobile applications. React Native is an open-source mobile app development framework created by Facebook in the year 2015. It is effective for creating high-performance mobile apps that can serve a large number of users at any given point of time. React Native has risen in popularity among native app development companies to create feature loaded mobile apps for Android and iOS platforms. The platform is effective at building cross-platform applications. 


Let’s explore the benefits of React Native and why it is a popular mobile app development framework.


Reusable Codes and Pre-Developed Components 


One of the biggest advantages React.js provides software developers is code reusability. Codes written in React Native can be reused for developing the same app for the different operating systems. The availability of pre-developed components in the open-source library accelerates the speed of mobile app development. It reduces development time and efforts leading to significant cost reduction. 


Flexible and Efficient


React is a JavaScript library that provides an easy interface to develop web and mobile applications. Native mobile app developers use React Native’s framework to develop single page applications (SPAs) or build innovative app functionalities easily. 


Open Source for Development


React Native is an open source library using which developers can freely contribute and provide valuable suggestions to improve the framework. Developers can also seek suggestions from other community members to create React Native apps.  The framework has the provision for developers to share their experiences and portfolios with community members and refine their skills.  


Comprehensive Development


React Native provides software developers with a single integrated solution for web application development. The framework is compatible with third party plugins and supports efficient development of additional features with zero downtime. It also enables developers to use MVVM (Model View View-Model) patterns, dependency injection, REST actions, data binding, inbuilt templating using HTML and built-in unit testing APIs to build all essential app features.


Simplified UI 


When compared to AngularJS or MeteorJS, this framework appears more like a JavaScript library than a framework. Developers can create sequence of actions with this framework to create responsive and interactive mobile applications. It enables developers to understand the end results of UI by reading JavaScript and HTML components. React’s interactive and flexible interface is effective for customizing pre-built components.  


Enables Live and Hot Reloading 


Live and hot reloading can be made possible with React Native Application Development. In live reloading an application reloads and refreshes when changes are made to it. The process provides new file to the simulator, which automatcally reloads the app directly from the start. 


Hot reloading is based on Hot Module Replacement (HMR). It exclusively refreshes the file without loosing the state of the app. The action can be performed by simply pressing Ctrl + S to save  the changes. The HMR intermediator inserts the updated files into the required place even when the app is in a running state. The advantage of hot reloading is that it enables developers to make changes in the source code without recompiling the app. 


The React.js development framework supports development of data-intensive, real-time web and mobile applications. Developers can reuse codes and pre-designed components to build apps efficiently. It eliminates the need to hire more developers and reduce development cost effectively. High performance, responsiveness, and agility are the key benefits of React.js mobile app development.  It offers effective processing so as to prevent users from facing downtime.
