The JavaScript framework allows developers to create native mobile apps with Web technologies.

Facebook has released React Native for Android as promised; back in March it launched React Native for iOS and said it would issue an Android version within six months. The tool allows mobile development firms to write native mobile apps using JavaScript.

"React Native brings what developers are used to from React on the Web -- declarative self-contained UI components and fast development cycles -- to the mobile platform, while retaining the speed, fidelity and feel of native applications," blogged Facebook engineers Daniel Witte and Philipp von Weitershausen.

Facebook engineer Tom Occhino added, "We're not chasing the write-once, run-anywhere pipe dream. Instead, what we want to do is chase the learn-once, write-anywhere paradigm."
