Compared with other app development frameworks, React native has grown leaps and bounds since its inception.

The day when the social media icon Facebook introduced this framework as a highly competitive cross-platform app development framework, React native is making all necessary updation to maintain its dignity and decorum amongst its peers.

Though React Native is found to be highly impressive and successful being a framework still, it holds its own set of pros and cons that makes it miss the limelight of adoption for apps sometimes.

This article will be projecting both the perks and setbacks of using a React Native framework which is collected from several pro-developers, project managers who worked closely with the implementation of React Native and it also helps the businesses to take self-decision regarding its adoption.

Pros of React Native

a) Saves Time

The first and foremost USP of React Native is its time optimization feature where it consumes low development time due to the sheer presence of several ready to deploy features that help to create any complicated apps. The faster creation of React Native based applications is possible only due to the existence of core base “The JavaScript” which holds more number of developers in its community. Since Facebook is making frequent changes to this framework, and it has the capability of sharing a huge codebase with the operating system, it can easily save more time and money as well.
Saves Time

Tested, for instance, React Native is found to develop an application 33% of time lesser than Swift, and it makes it get deployed across platforms.

Being the leading web development company in Chennai, iStudio Technologies can now create proficient applications using react native easily.

Single Framework Numerous Platforms

b) Single Framework Numerous Platforms

Another striking feature of using React Native framework is its multi-platform deployment where you can reuse the code between platforms. The cross-platform nature of an application is determined based on the total number of native module deployment in the application moreover the huge community of React Native helps to create an equally engaging application in the open source too. The strong support from JavaScript in React native framework helps the developer to create a flawless application both in mobile and web formats.
React Native as a framework maintains the solution stability and brings in the possibility of sharing non-UI code. We create affluent web applications by making complete use of react native to diversified industries according to their needs. Apart from saving the development cost and time, React Native also ensures to bring in the required consistency in the application.

c) Hot Reloading

Hot-reloading is a unique feature prevails in React Native that helps a developer to update the new feature in the application, without disturbing its workability. The developer doesn’t need to rebuild the application instead, they can bring in the required update wherever required.

d) Compact Teams

A developer who is well-versed with React Native can be a great asset for your organization as they eliminate the need for having two different teams for Android and iOS. Their proficiency in Javascript is high enough to create the required cross-platform application. Our experienced React Native developers will help you create best applications without spending much time on team expansion.

e) Fast Running Application

Most of the mediocre developers and amateur React Native users argue that React Native used to decimate their application’s performance but, the actual reality is something entirely different. You can always compare an application developed in React Native and Swift, where they used to give similar performance in terms of speed. Even if you find any lag of time from React Native still, you have the option of transferring all important codes to native modules.

f) Simplified UI

React Native is well-known for providing interactive UI were they use declarative programming were, the order of implementing is completely obsolete which helps in finding bugs and rectifying the same.

Drawbacks of React Native

a) Friction in Navigation

React Native becomes complicated sometimes to use by ejecting few weird issues like handling debugging tools, hot reloading failure and setbacks with compatibility packages. All these issues occur since it prevails in beta version, which may gradually slow down the process of development, particularly for budding developers.

b) Non-Existence of Custom Modules

Yes, there is a specific custom-module deficiency in some use cases when deploying the React Native framework for developing a cross-platform application. The non-existence of these readymade custom modules may force the developers to create one from scratch to handle the situation, which might be highly challenging for aspiring React Native developers.

C) Native Dependency do Exist

The dependency on native app developers still does persist in creating an application based on React Native framework.
There are certain situations where the need for native app developers becomes desperate and miniature teams would certainly struggle at that moment.
Having a backup of any native app developer would heal the situation, and would help to find an immediate solution for the inexperienced team of React Native developers.


Similar to other application development frameworks React Native also faces its own kind of setbacks despite the success it has tasted in the exclusive arena of cross-platform mobile app development.
Native app development like Android application and iOS application are found to be the temproary alternatives for this framework and on the other hand, Google delivers a stiff competition from its end by creating and executing a similar kind of efficient framework named Flutter.
