At Van Ons we have extensive experience in creating apps. We made apps for, among others, Sound and Vision in Hilversum, the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital and we recently launched the WielerFlits app. We use React Native for this.

Develop quickly with React Native

Developing apps in React Native has many advantages. The apps are programmed in JavaScript in one go and can then be published as an Apple or Android app. With purely “native” development, two separate apps would have to be written.

As a result, you can develop faster and the time-to-market is significantly reduced.

The fact that React Native is on the rise is also evident from the fact that this technology is used by large corporates. Instagram, Skype, Tesla and many others use React Native in one way or another.

There are many libraries available for React Native that greatly simplify and accelerate the development of new functionalities. Facebook (the creator of React Native) continues to provide tools and resources that ensure further development of this framework.

React Native has good performance

One of the most important things to pay attention to with both websites and apps is the speed. You don't want an app to be slower when you build it in React Native instead of native. Fortunately, that turns out not to be the case. From tests that programmers do it turns out that an app built in React Native is not inferior in performance compared to a native app. In fact, in some areas an app in React Native even performs slightly better.
