High-quality mobile apps with React Native
We love React Native because it allows us to quickly ship mobile apps while maintaining a world class mobile user experience.
Cost savings and faster time-to-market
React Native avoids maintaining repetitive codebases: one for iOS, one for Android. Instead, developers maintain one codebase.
We've achieved 80–90% code sharing across iOS and Android platforms, which translates to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost savings for our clients and a faster time to market.
See our SplitFit case study where we released a cross-platform iOS and Android app in 8 weeks using React Native.
Improved designer-developer workflow
With about 80 designers and developers at thoughtbot who have years of experience building user interfaces for the web, this is a familiar toolchain with a shallow learning curve.
It also means a smaller team can work on the mobile apps, web app, and API to the mobile apps. With more context across the platforms, they can be more productive, and you can lower your costs.
React Native outputs components that run as native views, a major benefit over alternative solutions like PhoneGap or Cordova. We've been pleased with the performance and feel of our final products.
