When it comes to creating apps, here at Van Ons, we have extensive experience. We’ve made apps for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital and recently launched the WielerFlits app. We use React Native.

Rapid development with React Native

Developing apps in React Native has many advantages. The apps are instantly programmed in Javascript and can be published as an Apple or Android app. Two separate apps should be written with purely native development.

As a result, development is faster and the time-to-market significantly shortened.

The larger corporates such as Instagram, Skype and Tesla also use React Native, an indication that this technique is growing.

Many libraries are available for React Native, simplifying and accelerating development of new functionalities. Facebook (the creator of React Native) will continue to provide resources ensuring further development of this framework.

React Native – high performance

One of the most important things with websites and apps is speed. You don’t want an app to be slower when built in React Native than native. Fortunately, this doesn’t appear to be the case. Testing done by programmers shows that an app built in React Native is by no means inferior to a native app. In fact, in some areas an app in React Native performs a little better.
