As a React developer I think that learning React Native would be the obvious choice if i wanted to create mobile apps. However i keep thinking that writing native code would be better in the long run. You going to make many cool apps using that stack?

Hi Andrew,
I will definitely learn iOS and Android native development as that knowledge would be useful anyway if I were only using React Native.
Once I am confident with those platforms, I may switch to the native development, but I would prefer to ship something before with my already familiar technology stack.

I agree with you. But sometimes is easier to develop a mobile app with React native and deliver an MVP, to validate the product.
