great framework,lots of resources,great community,easy to create UI
React Native is great in that it reduces the overhead of writing native code based on a web app. If written in a good style, Redux part of the app can often just be copied or shared in the Native app - and it just works! What a timesaver.
The framework used to write the mobile apps in this project. I've chosen this because of the "write once run all" (ios and android) mentality.
We use Ionic as it is an awesome framework to build mobile hybrid apps with nativ access. Also Ionic has a nice community!
We are not currently using this product but we have very high interest in learning and using this for mobile apps.
Cross-Platform goodness. I am a noob here...learning how to implement Ionic is on the top of my ToDo's
New features of our app are developed on React Native, so we could maintain a small dev team.
100% of our mobile codebase is shared between iOS and Android. Using along with TypeScript.
used on a recent project, an internal custom app developed for both ios and android.
