Why React Native??

My journey in mobile development began with native Android development, which I initially believed to be the most technically sound approach to building Android apps. However, as I observed a growing preference among clients for a single codebase, I decided to explore Flutter, which, in my opinion, offered an excellent compromise. Eventually, I also ventured into React Native, driven by its widespread demand among clients. But have you ever wondered why this preference exists? In this article, I will share some insights on React Native based on my experiences. I'm eager to hear your thoughts on my reasoning.

Behind the Scenes of Android TV Development

The era of the Smart TV is firmly upon us, with Android TV emerging as a key player. It's versatile, appearing on a wide range of devices such as smart TVs, Chromecast, and TV boxes compatible with older TVs. Typically, Smart TVs are equipped with browsers that can access streaming services.

An installed app grants complete control over the user experience. This means fewer sign-ins (a relief considering the complexity of typing secure passwords via remote), the option of easier sign-in methods like QR codes, and better management of issues such as poor connectivity. But, is developing an Android TV app as daunting as it seems? Not in the slightest! The Android TV ecosystem mirrors that of Android apps, Android Auto, and Android Wear, simplifying the search for skilled developers. As a demonstration, I've developed a simple Proof of Concept (PoC) Android TV app focusing on a critical feature: Internet-based video streaming.
