In a startup, it's natural to be monitoring the market trends to keep up with competition and to scale up the success ladder. Besides being a trending development framework in recent years, the reason for its preference lies in cross-platform quality maintenance.
So what does React native bring to the table in terms of features and capabilities?
1. Cross-platform development
Ever wondered why tech giants are able to cater to a diverse audience across all platforms? The key to reaching a wider audience lies in providing accessibility through different platforms. As a startup, reaching out can help filter your target audience and acquire more customers. In this category, React Native is undoubtedly a saviour.
For startups that plan on releasing their pre-MVP or MVP to an Android and iOS audience, React Native can enable your team to write a single script and reuse it for cross-platform usage. Rather than deploy and monitor results from a single platform, React Native lets you use your funding in a cost-effective manner.
2. Faster development and deployment with hot reloading
Compared to other approaches, React Native can get your application up and running in the market, faster than other development methods. In the era of faster development cycles and the race towards user feedback, spending years on an MVP to create an application may not work out in the case of startups. With competition around, features of React Native such as code reusability makes the development process seamless and cost-effective.
An additional feature that supports the maintenance of the application, as well as a seamless user experience, is hot reloading. It enables developers to make instant changes in the application code even when it's running. With the option of tracking a history of changes, React Native automatically reloads the application whenever the code changes.

4. User Experience
Did you know that around 50% of installers make their decision based on the first impression of your application? Whenever an application is launched in the market, user impressions matter the most. React Native not only offers a seamless user experience, but keeps the experience consistent across Android and iOS platforms, mimicking the look and feel of a Native app, but with lesser cost and development efforts. With a fully responsive mobile User Interface with a good user experience, React Native can be a worthy investment for your startup.
5. Compatibility with third-party plugins
While creating an application designed exclusively for a platform, adding specific functionalities later on in the development process can prove to be a hassle for native developers. Being an open-source platform, React Native supports the integration of third-party plugins for application development to create a scalable, reliable and feature-rich solution at a lower cost and minimized hassle.
