We have tried many platforms to develop mobile apps in the past, but lately we’ve settled on React Native as our platform of choice. It allows us to build native cross-platform (iOS and Android) mobile applications—all from one codebase. And, because it’s just React under-the-hood, anyone on our staff can contribute without having specialized mobile app expertise. This allows us to quickly build an app prototype and rapidly iterate to complete a production-worthy application, in a fraction of the time it would take to build separate applications for each mobile platform.
