React Native Part 2
Last week we talk about react native, that is after I have go through a few days of environment setup and testing out react native.
What I have now
- App runs in Iphone 4S with iOS 7.1
- App gets new bundle file (new UI and feature) asynchronously from remote server
- App as shown on the image above
The real advantage of react native on iOS
React Native are able to release the update quicker than the native apps. It is due to the nature that native app have to go through Apple QA process even for minor upgrades.
WebView App can also do quick update just like for react native, however it cannot utilize the native resource of the phone itself for example Address Book, Camera and Database storage.
The future of mobile development
For the future, the mobile developer will have this 2 major types:
- The developer of react native bridge for react native to communicate with iOS and Android
- The developer that implement the react native language to develop the App.
