Axios’s news site had won legions of fans for their ‘to-the-point’ editing and formatting for the web. But the browser experience wasn’t working for mobile users.

Axios gave themselves a tight deadline to create a new product for iOS and Android. The React Native framework would allow them to build both apps at once, but Axios didn’t have enough in-house capacity to pull it off while also supporting their core infrastructure.
