Instant performance.

Even with the similar props as the React Native FlatList, FlashList recycles components under the hood to maximize performance.

  renderItem={({ item }) => {
    return <TweetCell item={item} />;

Memory efficient scrolling

Some libraries allocate more items in memory to achieve good performance. FlashList does not recreate items as a user scrolls, making it noticeably more memory efficient.

Developer friendly

FlashList is especially easy-to-use thanks to FlatList's API. Simply change the name of your component and you are good to go.

Snappy on all platforms

On iOS, other lists perform well, but on Android, they fall short. FlashList performs well even on low-end Android devices.
