When developing a mobile phone app, developers need to use software to enable them to do it. Often, for an app, the developers will need to use different platforms depending on the different operating systems such as iOS or Android. However, there's now an alternative to using diverse platforms, and this is through cross-platform development.
React Native is an excellent framework for hybrid mobile app development. The idea is to write mostly the same code (90 percent or more) for every operating system. It saves time and improves control over the project. However, the devil's in the details, and there are some differences in building a React Native app for iOS and Android.

It all depends on the product you are planning to build and the direction where the technology, Apple, and Google will go in the next years. In this post, I'll try to make the decision more comfortable for you.
A native application is built to run on a particular operating system - usually Android or iOS, which own respectively 74.5% and 23% of the global mobile OS market share. Both Google and Apple develop their ecosystems. The apps are distributed through their services: Google Play and App Store.
With the world quickly becoming a hub for online synced activity and mobile devices, it is no surprise that almost all the next big business ideas are related to mobile technology. At the moment, software development is probably the hottest field globally, both as a profession and as an investment opportunity. With the number of dot com billionaires and millionaires growing by the minute, knowing where the potential for investment is can be a big source of financial gain.
