Picnic has multiple mobile apps that are of crucial importance to the business. Just to name two of them: the store app allows our customers to do their grocery shopping as conveniently as possible, and the runner app guides our delivery girls and boys through the streets, to make our customers happy with bags full of fresh and tasty products.
At Picnic, we use native and React Native alongside each other. Our android and iOS apps were developed as native apps. More recently, we have started to use React Native where possible. Using cross-platform technologies allows us to do more in the same amount of time and do it better. Like this we deliver more value to our customers, which is what we are all about.
We chose React Native because it is an opt-out technology: it provides an escape hatch to native when necessary. Hence, there is no lock-in. If the framework does not work for us for a specific use case we can use native instead. However enthusiastic we are about the technology, we are not dogmatic about it: we only use React Native where it makes sense. The user experience is our first priority.
