What is React Native?
React Native Applications
React Native is very well suited for creating applications that require extended functionalities, such as:
- Pedometers (precise geolocation)
- Banking apps (biometric authorization)
- Device fingerprinting
These companies chose React Native:
Afterpay chose React Native because it wanted to offer new in-store payment options to their clients; customers could now settle their in-store bills using codes generated by Afterpay. The quick, dual-platform development of this application attracted vast numbers of new customers; within 48 hours of its launch, the app ranked first in every local app store, was downloaded 15 million times, and received a rating of 4.9/5.0. Since April 2020, Afterpay’s iOS and Android apps have had over 6 million active users each month.
Bloomberg used React Native to quickly roll out new functionalities and improve customers’ in-app experience. The company especially wanted to implement more interactive content: using image parallax in the news channel, sharing articles via headline dragging and adding articles to browser tabs.
