React Native is a framework for iPhone app development that uses native elements for the user interface and JavaScript to run and define the application logic. The framework exposes a subset of native iOS elements and also allows developers to create new, custom modules to perform actions that are not supported by the framework out of the box. The open source community has created a number of custom modules (icons, image picker, camera, etc.) that can be easily added to any React Native project.
