As per a software engineer working at AirBnB, there are about 50 to 60 members working on a regular basis on the React Native technology closely with the application development team. The React Native framework makes it possible to write code that can be reused in a particular compatible language that is supported by multiple platforms.

In an online food ordering app, it is a must to have a dashboard for different restaurants with a range of features like push notification, analytics, and other functionalities.
