React Native is a framework designed by Facebook to accelerate the development of their mobile applications. Applications developed with Native React have the “look and feel” of native applications while retaining the advantages of web development. The applications can be deployed on Android and iOS faster without sacrificing performance and ergonomics.
In practice this means that developers work on a single code base. The development of the application is faster.
Who is using React Native? Apart obviously from Facebook apps (Facebook Ads Manager, Facebook Groups), the latest versions of the Instagram, Airbnb and Gyroscope mobile apps have been built with React Native.
