React Native is a framework created to enable native building native applications for Android and iOS. with a single JavaScript code base. A native app is one that is built for a specific platform or operating system. A hybrid application, on the other hand, is an application made with HTML, CSS or JavaScript (in case of React Native). Thanks to this solution you can have a web application, an iOS application and Android application that share the majority of the code.
