Hybrid or Native? Which Framework To Get Your App Developed?

  • Native or hybrid, which framework should I choose?

Fifteen years ago no one had an idea how to build an interface in mobile apps. The dream of having one framework that will cover all platforms was with the industry for years. Making that dream come true, however, used to be impossible. We all remember how Symbian looked, and the differences between iOS and Android in the beginning. Back then it was super hard to prepare one framework that somehow would be useful on all other platforms. There were of course frameworks like Xamarin, PhoneGap and bunch of others that did their best to achieve that goal—but none of them was really good.

However a new framework got released in 2015 namely React Native

React Native is the very first framework that allows us to create a mobile app, which work both on iOS and Android when we don’t have to compromise on speed, efficiency and their overall look and feel.

  • A React Native app is a real mobile app?

With React Native, you don’t build a “mobile web app”, an “HTML5 app”, or a “hybrid app”. 

You build a real mobile app that’s indistinguishable from an app built using Objective-C or Java. React Native uses the same fundamental UI building blocks as regular iOS and Android apps. You just put those building blocks together using JavaScript and React.

  • Why Should I go with React Native for my Hybrid App?

The reason why the REACT Native framework has gained popularity in recent years is that the framework helps cater both the platforms at one go and ends the holy war of selecting either iOS or Android development for mobile developers. Hence, giant companies like Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Airbnb, Tesla, Walmart, Baidu Mobile, Bloomberg, UberEATS Vogue and many more have shifted their eyeballs towards it.

  • Is an app built on React Native is a mobile web app?

At the initial stages, ‘hybrid’ or ‘mobile web’ apps were popular for their uncommonness mainly. However, when it comes to performance, the complicated the apps, the more lags it experienced. Hence, REACT Native came into the picture to break the ice! The REACT Native apps are compiled into natively written code, which enables it to not only work on both the operating systems but also functions the same way on both the platforms with no lags at all.Hybrid or Native

Other benefits of using REACT Native Framework include its faster development, ability to reuse components and ease to be maintained. Besides, it is a timesaving process and therefore many industries and even individuals today prefer using React Native along with NodeJS for creating astonishing mobile applications.
