Choosing React Native allowed the client to run the same code base for both iOS and Android

Cross-platform development with React Native saved the client up to 80% on effort compared to other technologies

  • The client’s business goals were to grow and extend to new markets, but an outdated mobile app had become an obstacle. It was our top priority to deliver a stable and scalable product within a reasonable time and budget for both iOS and Android platforms.
  • Choosing React Native allowed the client to run the same code base for both platforms. It made it easy to implement changes on the go.

Keeping the development process standardized yet flexible

  • Many decisions regarding functionality were based on user feedback, and plenty of changes took place on the go.
  • To keep the project well-organized, we followed the Airbnb React/JSX Style Guide. It’s the strictest and most complete guideline to date. We checked every piece of code before deployment to see if it matched the standard. This approach resulted in less time needed to implement changes and new features to the product.

Working efficiently by combining React Native existing libraries, native components, and custom elements

  • The project contains complicated business logic and many interconnections.  React Native is the optimal technology for this type of work.
  • Running a single codebase for both platforms means we only had to make changes once rather than separately for both iOS and Android. We also utilized existing libraries to optimize the development process.

Cross-platform development with React Native saved the client up to 80% of the efforts

How do you know when to consider React Native for your next mobile application development project? The first criteria is a straightforward, user-friendly UI that is similar on both platforms. The business logic, in contrast, is rather sophisticated with many interconnections. This is especially true if the logic on the Web (using ReactJS) is the same as on mobile. The most widespread misconception is that a React Web app can be transferred to the React Native mobile app. In truth, only the business logic could be reused. All UI, data processing, and visualization must be developed separately.
