  • It is developed by Facebook and an extension of React.JS.
  • It uses the same principles as a Virtual DOM for updating the UI, The changes will happen in the UI background and once those changes are in, It apply in batches.
  • It is cross platform so the same code-base is used to develop applications for both IOS and Android. It wraps around the native code and the logic layer remains the same across all the operating systems.
