Looking to scale four brands over multiple platforms, A+E Networks utilized You.i Engine One’s React Native solution to improve their development team’s productivity and gain greater control over their app ecosystem.

Highlights

Built using React Native

A+E Networks was You.i TV’s first entry into the React Native beta program, and the first customer to use You.i Engine One to launch a suite of cross-platform apps running entirely on the Facebook-backed JavaScript framework.

Single Codebase

With a single codebase in place, A+E Networks was able to apply the same UI layout across their A&E, HISTORY, Lifetime, and FYI apps, switching out logos and brand colors for differentiation. By building four individual apps with the same UI, A+E ensured their core fanbase would be able to interact with any of their streaming services without confusion.
