Fantastic post, we've been using React Native for about a year as well, with a lot of similar takeaways.

Great reading your article. 1 question. I don't have any experiences on Swift/Object-C or Java. Have Javascript on my belt (mid-level). Would using React Native and 100% depend on Javascript good enough?

If native is a must, then why bother learning React Native? I could just focus picking & building it natively which is much faster and better quality?

Thanks so much for offering your advices :) it's pure gold

Mind sharing your custom List renderer, I'm also having problems with it from a large set of data. Maybe open sourcing it as a module would be good :)

I'm really looking forward to that :)

Great.. I'm even developing apps with Ionic and planning to move to Native script or react native for performance.

Thanks for the great post! Can I ask why you suggest JPEG images?

In older versions of React Native, PNG downsampling was disabled since it was an experimental feature in Fresco. It looks like they have enabled it in the latest versions of React Native.

React Native Android depends on Fresco for loading and displaying images. Currently we have disabled downsampling because it is experimental, so you may run into memory issues when loading large PNG images.
