React Navigation is depended on by some of the most respected engineering organizations, well-known brands, and talented startups. It's used by financial services apps like Brex and Coinbase Pro; educational apps like Codecademy Go and DataCamp; consumer apps like Shop from Shopify, Bloomberg, TaskRabbit, and Th3rdwave; entertainment apps like the National Football League (NFL) (in their main app and several others), Cameo, Tracker Network for Fortnite, and the Call of Duty companion app from Activision Blizzard. One of my personal favourite apps using React Navigation is Readwise, I love making my coffee with Single Origin 2, and managing household chores with Sweepy.

We've also seen React Navigation used in apps that help in the fight against COVID-19. Our favourites are How We Feel by Pinterest co-founder and CEO Ben Silbermann and a team from Pinterest in collaboration with leading scientists (article) and COVID Symptom Study by ZOE Global in association with King's College London (article).
