React Native Hooks

React Native Hooks are a set of functions that allow developers to use state and other React features in functional components. These hooks were introduced in React Native v0.59 to simplify the development process and provide a more efficient way to manage state in functional components.

Some of the commonly used React Native Hooks are:

  • useState
  • useEffect
  • useContext
  • useReducer
  • useCallback
  • useMemo
  • useRef
  • useImperativeHandle
  • useLayoutEffect
  • useDebugValue

Each of these hooks serves a unique purpose, allowing developers to manipulate and manage state, perform side effects, and optimize performance.

Example of using useState hook:

import React, { useState } from 'react';

function Counter() {
  const [count, setCount] = useState(0);

  return (
      <p>You clicked {count} times</p>
      <button onClick={() => setCount(count + 1)}>
        Click me

In the above example, we have used the useState hook to manage the count state. The initial value of count is set to 0 and we have a button that updates the count value on every click.


React Native Hooks provide a more concise and efficient way to manage state and perform side effects in functional components. By using these hooks, developers can reduce the amount of boilerplate code and improve the readability of their code.
