These days I find android apps very fascinating and learning it is my next target. As a web developer, I thought picking up React Native would be a great idea as it is based on my favorite library React. In this blog, I will be providing my opinions on React Native.
React Native is a framework that is built on React for the development of android and ios apps for native look and feel. It was released in 2015 and is being used by major companies since then. It can be used to build both ios and android apps. But it has its own shortcomings.
Flutter is similar to React Native but is released 2 years after it. It is quite new to the app development world but has gained its popularity soon after its introduction. It is written in dart which leads to the learning of a completely new language rather than using the existing languages. It's said that it is better than React Native because it overcomes various shortcomings that are being faced by React Native.
As a react developer I obviously like React Native as I can build android apps with my current skill set. But in the future, I would like to work on Flutter and also the native languages. I am happy that the development community is rising very fast to provide us the most interesting technologies around and I would like to explore more in the future.
