What is React Native?
React Native Implementation

However, it does not manipulate the DOM (i.e. cross-platform interface that treats an XML or HTML document as a tree structure with nodes and objects). In other words, bridges an app with a target platform. For example, apps consisting of JS code and native by bridging.
Benefits of using React Native
Better User-Interface and Exceptional Performance
React Native is quite effortless to catch up for any developers. Likewise, it is used in both mobile and web application development. To add ice on the cake, most of the codes in framework are sharable. This makes it easier for developers to work on a single project.
Another tempting feature of React Native is Hot-Reloading. This feature saves a lot of time and effort. It allows us to observe all the changes done in the code without needing to refresh the page continually.
Certain Drawbacks of React Native
New to the market
React Native was founded in 2015. It was first launched for iOS and after few months, it was available for Android as well. Since then, it has evolved exceptionally. However, there are still certain rooms rectification.
It is quite difficult to debug in this framework. It adds an extra application layer which makes the process of debugging very complicated.
Developers often time underestimate React Native by considering that a programmer only proficient in JS can handle the nooks and cranny of this framework. However, during certain tough times (like creating plugins and themes), a significant experience in this framework is Crucial.
