Android or React Native?

  • I am a proficient iOS/Swift developer and I am keen to develop an app on the Android platform.
  • I am also a realist and I know that the time available to me is limited.
  • Q : Will my time be better spent learning React-Native – or – Android Java/Kotlin?

I’m a proficient iOS / Swift developer and I want to have a go at developing on the Android platform. How should I do that?

Skype is testing a new Android app with a new design, reaction feature, and Bing integration

  • The software giant recently released a new Skype Preview app on Android, for those part of the Skype Insiders program.
  • If you have used the new Skype Preview app on Windows 10, you’ll notice that the icons on the new Android app are exactly like the ones on the Windows 10 app which is pretty great to see as it improves the consistency of the service’s design — which, to be honest, is still lacking on some Microsoft services unfortunately.
  • As for the features of the new Skype, you will get almost all of the features that are on the old Skype app — but Microsoft has added some neat new features to the new Skype app.
  • Microsoft says the company will be adding more tools like this in the near-future — which you’ll presumably be able to activate if you want:

    As you can see in one of the screenshots above, Microsoft has also added a new “react” feature that essentially lets you react to a message in a conversation.

  • The new Skype app for Android is looking really good at the moment, and it’ll likely get rolled out to more users in the coming months.

Skype’s Android app is a fairly well-designed app with a bunch of features that is pretty great…when it works. Skype apps across different platforms have some issues, although Microsoft has done a pretty good job at fixing some of the issues when the company moved to a modern infrastructure. The Skype UWP app on Windows 10 is a good example of the “modern Skype” that works pretty great for the most part, but it isn’t full-featured just yet. And now, it looks like Microsoft is working on a similar reboot for the Skype app on Android.

I want to research about Hybrid Mobile App. Which one do you prefer between Ionic and React Native? And let me know the reason.

Should you go for #ReactJS Native or Ionic when building a mobile app?

  • React native apps aren’t hybrid apps.
  • No comparison between Ionic and RN -> Go for RN
  • The reason is that React Native is used by Facebook, Airbnb and a lot of other big tech actors.
  • The community is growing day by day and the result at the end is quite the same as a Swift or Android app.
  • Receive notifications when there are new responses to this question .

I want to research about Hybrid Mobile App. Which one do you prefer between Ionic and React Native? And let me know the reason.. Ionic VS React Native.
