React Native App Development

Why do we use React ?

Sovereign, provides React Native app development services. It’s based on React, Facebook’s JavaScript library for building user interfaces, but instead of using it just for browser, it targets mobile platforms too. In other words, developers can write the code only once and make it work on multiple platforms. So how does it affect the user? Well at Sovereign we use React Native so the application we develop will be available on all platforms creating a wider reach

Advantages of React Native


React Native is an open-source platform. Developers can share their experiences and create portfolios, which encourages them to write better code. After learning something new while working with React Native, a developer can share their experience with the GitHub React Native Community, get feedback, and collaborate with other members.

Reusable code

This is probably the most important advantage of React Native. With the convenience of this framework, developers don’t need to build a separate mobile app for each platform, as almost 90 percent of React Native code can be reused between iOS and Android. React Native is a perfect solution that can cut the time and cost in half.

Simplified UI

React Native is all about the mobile UI. If we compare this framework to AngularJS or MeteorJS, we find that it looks more like a JavaScript library than a framework. It’s important to create a sequence of actions when building a mobile app, and React Native makes an implementing order just perfect. Plus, user interfaces designed in React Native are more responsive, less load time, and provide a smoother feel

Third-party plugin support

The React Native framework is still developing, so it might lack some components in the core framework. To fill this void, React Native allows you to link any plugin with a Native or third-party module like JavaScript. The most used third-party plugins for React Native are React Native SelectMe, React Native Vector Icons, React Native Router Flux, React Native Gifted Spinner, React Native ModalBox, and React Native Drawer.

Modular architecture

Modular programming is a software design technique that splits the components of the program into many independent and interchangeable slots called modules. Developers prefer this cause it provides flexibility within the software development team as developers can explore into each other’s projects if needed. It’s also possible to reuse modules that work both with web and mobile APIs.

Live and hot reloading

At Sovereign we use live reloading which reads and compiles a live file in which changes are made and then provides the new file to the simulator, which automatically reloads the app from the starting point. Hot-reloading is based on Hot Module Replacement (HMR). It is basically a Webpack feature that updates your JavaScript, exchanges and adds or removes modules while an application is running without a full browser reload

What is React Native?

React Native is a JavaScript framework for writing and rendering mobile applications for iOS and Android. It’s based on React, Facebook’s JavaScript library for building user interfaces, but instead of using it just for browser, it targets mobile platforms. In other words: web developers can now write mobile applications that look and feel truly “native,” all from the comfort and similarity of a JavaScript library that we already know and love. Also because most of the code you write can be shared between platforms, React Native makes it easy to simultaneously develop for both Android and iOS. React Native puts a stop to the age-old decision that the mobile app developers encounter and offers a better user experience.
