Lower development and support costs

React Native is our default technology of choice for mobile app development. It is a cross-platform development technology - we write one set of code and 'build' it seperately for iOS and Android. You get the following benefits:

  1. Significantly lower development and support costs. We're effectively writing one app for two platforms - so less code to write and lower maintenence costs.
  2. Apps built with React Native look and feel like 'native' apps. Your app on an iPhone feels like a standard iOS app - it will look polished and it will be be very responsive. You'll get the same speed and high quality user experience when we build the app for Android.

React Native is open source technology and it's backed by Facebook. It is the leading mobile app development framework.
