Startups Who Built Apps In React Native

5 Min Read

When the likes of Walmart and Uber start using React Native for their apps, you pay attention. No longer does React Native serve only basic apps, no, this javascript framework is being used for everything from integrating old code with new, to re-writing hugely popular apps from scratch with 95% code shared between Android and iOS.

We’ve picked out an example for each kind of use case, so you can see whether your startup or digital transformation project could also ride the React Native rocket ship:
