Mobile apps development is a hot skill, the demand for it has only increased over the last decade. Though various stats show the web still has a huge lead in terms of user reach than native mobile apps, the richness of the user experience that native mobile apps bring to the table cannot be easily replicated on the web.

In this course, we go deep-dive into React Native. React Native and Flutter are the biggest players in the cross-platform mobile apps development space. Reactive Native was created by Facebook, while Flutter was created by Google. They are both very powerful and both have been used to build big-brand apps. Some of the big brands powered by React Native include Airbnb, Skype, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. So there is no question about its capabilities. Flutter on the other hand has been used to build a few popular brands as well.

A few of the advantages that React Native has over Flutter are more jobs and being javascript-based. Most developers have some familiarities with javascript already, so there is no need to learn a completely new language. It also has almost double of jobs demand by employers than Flutter. At the end of this course, you will have the necessary knowledge and skills to build and distribute professional Android and iOS apps.
