Breakthrough release provides development teams with unified application stack that drives code reuse, video-first features
OTTAWA, CANADA – Sept. 12 — You.i TV, the leader in multiscreen application development, has announced the availability of the latest version of its’ cross-platform application framework — You.i Engine One version 5.0 — now supporting React Native. By binding React Native to You.i Engine One, You.i TV has created a unified application stack that scales multiscreen video-first apps — including 10ft platforms like Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and streaming devices like Roku in addition to mobile — with maximal code reuse and unmatched user experience.
You.i TV customers are choosing the React Native app development framework because of its usability, iteration speed, and growing ecosystem and community. You.i Engine One version 5.0 empowers these teams to leverage a familiar toolset and extend their development strategy to create multiscreen apps at scale by providing extensive portability, code-reuse, and video-first capabilities including native player integration and DRM.
Organizations are challenged with creating unified app development strategies across a fragmented device and platform landscape,”
said Jason Flick, CEO and Co-Founder of You.i TV.
“With the combination of You.i Engine One and React Native, in-house development teams can unlock a new level of development velocity in delivering custom multiscreen apps with market-leading user experiences.
You.i TV has worked with developers from some of the world’s most prolific media brands as part of their React Native Early Access program. Working collaboratively through a series of agile sprints, these Early Access program participants helped shape the product being launched today.
