What is React Native?
React Native is an open-source framework for mobile app development as well as web app development, introduced by Facebook. Many tech giant companies turned towards React Native for iOS and Android platforms. React Native framework allows the developers to transform the fully developed native mobile app into a react native application with efficiency.
As per a survey by Statista.com, nearly 42% of mobile app developers prefer this open-source framework React Native for developing cross-platform mobile applications.

Minimize Development Time
React Native provides live and hot reload options which will be beneficial to developers at the time of development. In native development, development IDE is not providing this feature. Developers have to just refresh the page and everything works like updated code. In React Native, we have to build apps once that run on multiple platforms. This is one of the biggest advantages of this technology. React Native saves time in developing apps, as said earlier around 70-75% of a codebase can be shared across platforms. Importantly, it brings agility, offers well-organized processing, and delivers a better user experience.
Rich User Interface
The benefit of code reusability offered by React Native helps diminish the costs of app creation to a large extent. Code reusability affects the development time and cost. Cost and time could cut to half of native development. With this framework, developers need not write individual code for iOS and android and can simply code the application in the existing language. This results in the necessity for a tinier team of native developers for all app development businesses and ensures a sharp limiting in project completion time helped by the competence of the React Native community.
Most popular cross-platform framework
The framework is proved to be the most among other frameworks. This is the reason why most companies or tech giants, including Facebook, Instagram, Walmart, and Wix have developed their apps using a React Native. After introducing the open-source library, back in 2015, the social media giant, Facebook itself started using React Native. As this is an open-source library, the developer studied this and grape this technology and created a huge community. Developers can get huge support from the community because of its popularity.
