Mobile app development simplified

React Native continues to gain popularity as an innovative development framework that helps you build mobile apps faster and reduces overall cost of ownership. Easier than ever before, companies can now quickly build a mobile app that’s fast, intuitive and consistent across platforms.


Facebook developers created React Native and some of the world’s biggest brands now use it to make development and deployment easier for its mobile apps. These include the likes of Airbnb, Tesla, Walmart, Instagram, Skype and Uber. This framework takes JavaScript code and turns it into native mobile applications for iOS and Android. It fundamentally changes the time, effort, and cost of developing rich mobile applications, because it allows code re-use across Web, Android and iOS. Those familiar with using JavaScript can upskill quickly without the investment of learning a complete new language like Swift or Java.


Bluegrass Digital managing director Nick Durrant says React Native is an incredible technology platform and most mobile app projects could use it successfully. “Maintaining and updating an app using React Native is more consistent, efficient, and cost-effective than using native code.”

Furthermore, React and React Native appeals to companies that embrace the latest web and mobile technologies to reach tech-savvy consumers. They expect innovative products that offer convenient solutions when shopping, travelling and performing daily tasks, and delivering mobile apps to meet those expectations can be done at a much faster pace without massive investment in product development.


“Using React Native to build mobile apps means you only have to build your mobile app once, effectively cutting development time significantly. This allows you to deploy directly to iOS, Android and Windows platforms, and still maintaining native performance, quality and features,” he explains.


“More importantly, fewer developers are needed when building out an app for iOS and Android as you are building the app using JavaScript, a familiar web development language, along with React,” he adds.


Today, developers want to work as agile as possible and create apps that offer satisfactory user experiences. React Native offers the same features and performance of native apps, but the coding allows for constant improvements without any delays in the usual process of separate codebase managment, development, quality assurance and roll-out.


Experts say React Native brings better app performance, DOM abstraction, and simplified programming methods to hybrid mobile development. It is no wonder that React Native is quickly being adopted as a popular technology of choice by the development community.


Durrant says that since our first commercial success a few years ago using React Native on a mobile app for start-up Names and Faces, we have continued to invest further in our skills development. It has also been one of the the key reasons Bluegrass Digital has been working with leading financial services companies that have selected React Native over other technologies as their chosen mobile development framework.
