The rise of cross-platform development

In 2012, Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, already realized the problems with HTML5 as the basis for mobile applications. Performance was a major obstacle in this first wave of hybrid programming, where many companies were forced to rely on expensive native applications for each platform.

Today, however, thanks to technological innovations, it is possible to build platform-agnostic and high-performance applications from a single codebase. This means that the same components and business logic can be reused for Android, iOS and Web applications alike.

Now that performance of these types of applications is no longer an issue, we can look at the other benefits of working from a single technology.

  • Fast time-to-market

    Because multiple platforms can be driven with the same code, applications can be developed and published faster.

  • Cost-efficient

    The reuse of components and business logic translates into less development work and maintenance.

  • Consistency

    The centralized code ensures consistency and interoperability of functionalities across all platforms.

Our building block: React Native

To achieve this, we at Codana choose to work with React Native as our technology, one of the most advanced and versatile frameworks in the industry. React Native uses JavaScript (one of the most popular programming languages) along with React, a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. With React, developers can build UI components that can be efficiently reused and manipulated. 

This allows us to build powerful and dynamic applications with a native look and feel and user experience. Whether it's complex enterprise applications or engaging consumer apps, React Native allows us to deliver customized solutions that meet our customers' unique needs and expectations.
