  • Same app quality: This might not mean anything to some of you, but apps developed in React Native vs. apps developed in Kotlin feel the same.

  • A few years ago, Facebook officially announced React Native, a powerful framework with the promise of cross-platform compatibility.
  • The major selling point of React Native is shorter development time.
  • Facebook puts a lot of resources to ensure React Native’s reliability and also to guarantee a constant development of the platform.
