[_] React Native vs Native

Hi Folks,

some old friends of mine are looking to build a utility app for a financial
Apple & Android. It has to be slick. Think Revolut in terms of utility /
production values.

Their likely options are either

- Agile iOS native build with Android dev following rapidly behind as
sections get completed/locked down
- React Native

Can anyone share any experience on the React Native side? How well does it
deliver on the promise of 'build once for both platforms'? How much
additional build pain is there?
