#1 Facebook & React Native
Originally, Facebook only developed React Native to support iOS. However, with it’s recent support of the Android operating system, the library can now provide mobile UIs for both platforms. Facebook used React Native to develop its own Ads Manager app, creating both an iOS and an Android version. Both versions were created by the same team of developers.
Facebook also made React Native open-source, with the idea that compatibility with other platforms like Windows or tvOS could be operated on by the development community, so stay tuned.
#2 Skype & React Native
One of the largest React Native applications in the world with hundreds of millions of users and major parts being developed in Prague.
#3 Instagram & React Native
Instagram accepted the challenge to integrate React Native into their existing native app beginning from the simplest view you can imagine: the Push Notification view which was basically implemented as the WebView. It did not require building navigation infrastructure, as UI was quite simple.
The dev team at Instagram faced a few problems on the way, but they substantially improved developer velocity. 85% to 99% of code was shared between Android and iOS apps, depending on products, thus the team was able to deliver the app much faster than they would have with a native solution.
#4 AirBnb & React Native
“We have built an incredibly strong integration into our apps to enable complex native features such as shared element transitions, parallax, and geo-fencing as well as bridges to our existing native infrastructure such as networking, experimentation, and internationalization.”
ReactNative brought these advantages to AirBnB development team:
- Allow us to move faster as an organization.
- Maintain the quality bar set by the native.
- Write product code once for mobile instead of twice.
- Improve upon the developer experience.
#5 Tesla & React Native
Tesla app is another application written in React Native. This React Native product is designed for users of Tesla vehicles and Powerwall. There is no difference whether you use an Android-based gadget or its Apple competitor since all functions to control and monitor your Tesla items such as the charger, lights, horn, locks, or the panoramic roof, are available with equal facility on both platforms.
