I must say the whole react-native expo development experience has been quite the challenge and quite the disappointment.
I’ve built an app using create-react-native-app and running on expo. On a IOS device phone, tablet, real device, simulator everything works and I’ve been able to create an app that looks like I want. The app contains video playback at it’s heart and this works fine with the Video package from expo.
Running on Android is a whole other matter. formatting is different, component layout is different, videos don’t play. The cross-platform compatibility seems seriously flawed. The promise of cross-platform development & deployment doesn’t seem like a real thing at all.
Maybe I’m just frustrated because the whole Angular path was much the same.
Any suggestions/tutorials appreciated.
