Benefits of using React Native Hybrid Mobile App

1. It’s Got iOS And Android Covered

Facebook initially created React Native to support iOS. Of recent, it has supported the Android operating system, making the library render mobile UIs for both platforms. Facebook builds its own Ads Manager app using React Native. With this, it creates both an iOS and an Android version. The same team of developers is responsible for building both versions.
Besides, React Native open-source id developed by Facebook and this is compatible with platforms like Windows or tvOS and could be worked on by the development community.

2. Hybrid Apps Can Render Natively Via Reusable Components

The Web View components of other hybrid mobile apps don’t exist anymore since the React Native’s building blocks are reusable components that compile directly to native.

Every component in iOS or Android has counterparts right in React. This will give you a consistent look and feel.
Furthermore, with the component-based structure, you are able to build more agile and web-style approach apps than typical hybrid frameworks. However, this app contains no web, but has speed, look, and functionality of a native mobile application.


3. With an existing app’s code, apply React Native UI components—without any rewriting at all

Many businesses desire to augment an existing app; however, they are reluctant to overhaul it. The application of React Native UI components to an existing app’s code brings a huge benefit. Alternatively, if your existing hybrid app was built with Cordova and Ionic, reuse that Cordova-based code easily via plugin.

4. It’s One of The Top Mobile Javascript Frameworks Among Developers- And Growing

React Native is a quick pick-up for someone that is very vast in JavaScript. It allows any front-end web developer to become an instant mobile developer. With the knowledge of JavaScript, some native UI elements, platform APIs, and any other platform-specific design patterns, you’re good to go because there is no need anymore to learn iOS’s Swift or Java for Android.

React Native’s library features the following apps: debugging, inline styling and Flexbox CSS styling. The library also supports deploying. These apps can be obtained either on the App Store or Google Play.

React Native is still new. However, its rate of maturity is very rapid. In fact, Facebook has revealed plans to invest in its growth.


5. React Native Is All About The UI

Building a mobile UI is the principal aim of React Native. React Native is UI-focused. This is in comparison with JavaScript frameworks like AngularJS or MeteorJS. The UI really makes it more like a JavaScript library than a framework.
Besides, the resulting UI is highly responsive. With mobile UI, there is quicker load times and a smoother feel than a typical hybrid app.


6. Native App Development Is Much More Efficient

Native app development is characterized by less developer productivity and inefficiency. However, React Native promotes the speed and agility of web app development to the hybrid space.
Facebook’s popular ReactJS UI library for web applications is under React Native’s hood.
React Native features:

  • ReactJS’s better app performance
  • DOM abstraction
  • Simplified programming methods

7. It Offers Third-Party Plugin Compatibility, Less Memory Usage, And A Smoother Experience

With Third-party plugins, you don’t need to rely on a WebView for certain functions. For instance, assuming you want to add Google Maps functionality to your app, React Native will assist you to link the plugin with a native module, to enable you link the map up with the device’s functions like rotate, compass and zoom, while using less memory and loading faster. Older operating systems helps to keep the app running smoothly, however, this will be possible if your app supports them.


There are diverse Mobile App tools you can choose; however, it is very tough to develop them. Besides, in order to reach the largest audience, it is very important for Mobile Apps to support multiple platforms. This is where the Hybrid app framework takes the position.

There is a wide gap between the performance of a native application and the ease of development of a web application. This is what Hybrid app frameworks have come to bridge. In fact, Hybrid Apps have won the hearts of so many app developers.

It is expected that very soon, Hybrid Apps will rule the application development industries across the globe. Obviously, it is a good choice for new developers.
