In last year’s business case about Keytrade’s future-proof online banking and trading platform, we put forward React Native as the next step in developing the mobile app version. A year ago, icapps ran a PoC to determine whether React Native was the way to go. Even though the React Native technology was still in its infancy back then, we believed it would be a time- and money-saver. A few months later, React Native has proved its worth: maximum code reuse, live reload (enabling you to immediately see the result of the latest change that you have made to the code), modular and intuitive architecture and it’s superfast. In the case of the Keytrade Bank project, two native apps (Android & iOS) were built over a 6-month period. Inconsistencies between iOS and Android disappeared and maintenance was much more simplified. Thanks to the React Native app, Keytrade Bank is ready to unify the workflow between its different teams, since they can use features covering backend, web and app at the same time. The Keytrade Bank app is the first banking app built with React Native in Belgium. As pioneers, we learned a lot. Let’s highlight 5 lessons we’ve learned on the Keytrade Bank project.
