Build better, faster, and smarter with React Native
[React Native Development Services]
iOS. Android. Single Codebase.
The days of needing a separate codebase for each mobile OS you’re developing for are over.
With React Native, we implement a single codebase for both the iOS and Android platforms. The benefits of cross-platform development include rapid deployment, quick rendering, component-based architecture, better code organization...and, of course, only one code set to manage.
Go to market faster than ever. Scale, iterate and grow at a pace that works for you.
A React Native Development Company like Makers' Den can even leverage the same code for web apps if you're developing for the web simultaneously. Watch your budget dollars go farther than ever before.
One codebase, many options.
[Why React Native]
Beyond the App Store
The beauty of using a platform like React Native is that it allows you to push front-end updates to your app without resubmitting the changes to any app store. This means you can adjust to user feedback on-the-fly and spend hours - not days - getting app enhancements out to the world.
By working with a React Native Agency like Makers' Den you can experience the power, efficiency and cost savings of React Native.
Some major companies that use React Native for their mobile apps:
[Why Makers' Den]
You’ve got a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a mobile app developer. What you’ll get with Maker’s Den is an unmatched passion and commitment to your project that you won’t find anywhere else. We revel in technology advances and keep our skills sharp at all costs. What we really take pride in is our dedication to building bespoke, quality, bullet-proof apps that make an impact on your business.
Development, design, and project management for your mobile app project to ensure it runs smoothly, but, more importantly, our React Native experts help provide strategic direction for your ideas and guarantee that you go live without compromise.
Around 90% of mobile apps, and 99% of B2B mobile apps should be React Native apps. There's very little reason to do native iOS/Android dev.
Single dev team, faster Iteration, cross-platform dev, re-usable components, instant updates, community support.
It's a game changer.

Now’s the Time to Develop for the Future
Of course, you can go with platform native apps, but be aware of the disadvantages:
You will end up with multiple codebases, doubling development and maintenance costs.
You will have a team per platform, increasing coordination efforts.
You will lose feature parity between apps as one team is scrambling to catch up with the other.
You won't benefit from the rich community and ecosystem offered by React Native.
What about alternatives like Flutter?
We've experimented with it, and although it looks good on paper, the realities are that Flutter is still immature in 2023, its ecosystem is lacking and adding a weird language like Dart adds more complexity.
We’re grateful for the incredible companies we get to work with. We share a passion for quality with our clients and look forward to the opportunity to call you one soon.
Makers' Den created our web application to digitize the process of license management in the health sector. They delivered UX/design and development and are still maintaining it after launch. They've been with us throughout the whole process and are still improving it as we sign new customers and receive more feedback.

[Frequently Asked Questions]
The important thing is to
never stop questioning
Why should I choose React Native for my mobile app?
Cross-platform compatibility: React Native allows you to build apps for both iOS and Android using a single codebase, which can save development time and reduce maintenance costs.
Reusable components: React Native's component-based architecture allows developers to reuse components across different parts of an app, making development more efficient and consistent.
Large community and ecosystem: React Native has a large and active community, providing extensive resources such as libraries, tools, and tutorials. This support network can make it easier to find solutions to problems and accelerate development.
Improved performance: React Native apps have near-native performance due to their ability to access native components and APIs, resulting in a more responsive and smoother user experience compared to traditional hybrid apps.
Hot reloading: React Native's hot-reloading feature allows developers to see changes in their code without needing to rebuild the entire app, speeding up the development process and making iteration faster.
Integration with existing apps: React Native can be integrated into existing native apps, allowing developers to gradually transition to the framework without having to rewrite the entire app from scratch.
Regular updates and improvements: React Native is maintained by Facebook and is constantly updated with new features, improvements, and bug fixes, ensuring that the framework stays relevant and up-to-date.
Cost-effective: Since React Native allows you to develop apps for both iOS and Android with a single codebase, it can save time and resources compared to developing separate native apps for each platform.
Strong corporate backing: React Native is backed by Facebook, which adds credibility to the framework and ensures long-term support and stability.
Why is React Native better than Flutter, Ionic/Cordova or Xamarin?
Ecosystem: React Native has a larger ecosystem, with more libraries and third-party integrations available.
Integration with existing apps: React Native can be more easily integrated into existing native apps, allowing for a gradual transition to the framework.
Flutter is still very immature and you will hit far more problems unless you're developing something within the blessed set of features.
React Native vs Cordova/Ionic (WebView-based hybrid frameworks):
Performance: React Native offers better performance than Cordova/Ionic, as it uses native components and APIs instead of a WebView, resulting in a more responsive user experience.
React Native vs Xamarin (C#):
Ecosystem: React Native has a larger ecosystem and community support compared to Xamarin, providing more resources such as libraries and tools.
Microsoft has announced end of Support for Xamarin, so it is officially a sinking ship.
I want to keep my idea confidential. Will you sign an NDA with me?
Yes, we sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) always when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning before we discuss your project's details, or at another stage of the process - it's up to you.
Do I own the intellectual property rights of my application?
Yes, you are the owner of Intellectual Property rights at all times.
Where is your development team located?
We are fully remote. So while we were founded and are still based in Berlin, most developers will be remote from a central European location.
What is the pricing model?
You work with us on a Time & Materials basis. The total cost depends on the actual time the team spends on the development. You are in charge of the project’s scope and set priorities for the development team.
Time & Materials allows flexibility for you to set the direction of development depending on the users’ feedback, market situation, or opportunities that arise during the development.
For more about how we create estimates read how to estimate software projects.
What would my development team look like?
We adjust the team depending on your needs. Our speciality is low overhead teams, where every member is contributing concretely towards customer facing features. That means everyone is either doing development or design.
Roles like Project Manager, Business Analyst and QA are responsibilities which are shouldered by our business oriented developers or designers.
You may take the role of a Product Owner, making decisions on priority and scope.
Can you work as an amendment to our in-house team?
Yes. We can adapt to your tools and processes. I.e. fully integrate into your existing team.
How does the company ensure code quality and maintainability?
We follow best practices, perform code reviews, implement automated testing and continuous integration to ensure code quality and maintainability. All projects are not equal though and the level of automated QA will be determined on your need for quick feedback from the market.
Can you hand the code over to another team?
Yes. We create easily understandable and maintainable code using well known frameworks which don’t require niche knowledge.
The runtime environments we can set up in your ownership from the get-go.
What is the experience level of my team?
Every team has a partner involved in the project. Our developers have a proven track record of outsized throughput. Our culture is one of delivering features every day. That's why we prefer senior developers, but not seniors that are from slow moving enterprise environments.
How am I kept up-to-date of development?
We have fixed length iterations (usually 1 week), at the end of which you will be demoed the current progress. You will have access to team members through Slack, email and video calls and our regular meetings. In addition to this you will have access to our project management tools (Jira or Asana), which we update daily.
Why hire us?
We love what we do and only employ people with a similar mindset. You ship faster by working with a small team where each developer is a focused on your business goals. With us you get direct access to everyone. This keeps overhead low and output high.
You are in control. We offer full transparency of progress and potential problems. We keep you informed and present options, but you make the decisions.
We value our client relationships and their product visions. Meet with us to see if we share the same conviction. We might be a good fit.
