Developing For iOS and Android At The Same Time
However, there is a limitation. We can’t use React Native to develop an app that is specified to use a certain API that is unique to each operating system.
React Native has been around for 6 years now, the numbers of developers that are well-versed in this framework are numerous. By using a framework that is backed by a strong and solid community, it will make us easier to solve our problems and make things easier. Also, it doesn’t close the opportunity for new API to show up which makes our work undemanding.
This is what makes React Native my choice as a frontend framework. As a UI/UX designer, every time I make a change in the interface, I need to make sure that it also looks the same in the app compared to the prototype. I also need to make sure what my application will look like on multiple devices regardless of size. This feature is by far the most important one and the one I’m going to use the most.
To sum up, getting to know React Native has been kind of fun for me. I also encourage you to get to know other frontend frameworks as well and find the one that suits you the best. Thank you.
