React Native Performance Roadmap

React Native Performance Roadmap

As Developers, we want to build apps that customers will love and spread with the world. To achieve that, a significant part of the app development community often chooses to develop their apps using React Native because they can deliver beautiful, high-quality, and multi-platform mobile apps.

React Native naturally offers a lot of optimization for designing high-performing applications out of the box. However, frequently you might face performance issues mostly related to your codebase structure. Slow apps or crashes will give your users a poor experience, and they will eventually uninstall it.

When talking about performance issues, people usually jump to the tips and trick optimization part, but we need to be aware of the tradeoff in terms of budget, time, effort, etc. The purpose of this article is to give you a clearer idea of what is essential to have in mind before starting a React Native project and to guide you on how to identify improvement opportunities for your App. We are not to encourage you to pick what is hip and trendy.
