What is React?
In 2015, Facebook released open-source React Native for native development on Android and iOS.
Over 65 thousand respondents of the 2020 Stack Overflow Developer Survey picked Angular and React as the most-wanted frameworks for web development. You need to consider what both powerhouses offer:
Since both frameworks have Open-source MIT licenses, they are free to use, change, and re-sell for personal and commercial use. Both frameworks share key features: components, data binding, and platform-agnostic rendering.
Since Angular and React provide a component-based architecture and an open-world coding environment, developers can swap functions without the need to rebuild the application
Client-side and Server-side rendering are both available, so loading-time optimization is possible regardless of the app’s complexity
Both frameworks have large Communities. There are more than 157 thousand React projects on GitHub, and more than 66 thousand Angular projects.

Fortunately we at Obiltech can work with both frameworks. If you have an application in mind, and you cannot decide which one to use, we can help you. Both Angular and React deliver robust performance and user experience. The factors that need to be considered are: time to adapt, deployment speed, and employer/client business requirements.
Angular has the Ionic framework, and you can create hybrid mobile apps with it. But mobile app development with React Native offers a native UI experience. React is a better choice for mobile development.
