Overview of this book

If you are a developer looking to create mobile applications with maximized code reusability and minimized cost, React Native is what you need. With this practical guide, you’ll be able to build attractive UIs, tackle common problems in mobile development, and achieve improved performance in mobile environments. This book starts by covering the common techniques for React Native customization and helps you set up your development platforms. Over the course of the book, you’ll work through a wide variety of recipes that help you create, style, and animate your apps with built-in React Native and custom third-party components. You’ll also develop real-world browser-based authentication, build a fully functional audio player, and integrate Google Maps in your apps.

Running multiple animations

In this recipe, we will learn how to use the same animation values in several elements. This way, we can reuse the same values, along with interpolation, to get different values for the remaining elements.

At the center of the screen, we will have a static airplane. We won't add any animation to the airplane, but the moving clouds will make it appear as though the plane is moving.

Getting ready

Let's start this recipe by creating an empty app called multiple-animations.

We are going to use three different images: two clouds...
