Please I have been trying to develop this app for weeks now and each time I run the command expo start, I get this time out error

Could not connect to development server.

Ensure the following:

  • Node server is running and available on the same network - run ‘npm start’ from react-native root
  • Node server URL is correctly set in AppDelegate
  • WiFi is enabled and connected to the same network as the Node Server

I think you should try to provide more information; I have had this error occur when network was down.

Are you developing using a device? Did you make sure both the device and the computer are on the same network?

Yeah both the device and laptop were connected to same network
The app splash screen actually displays then at the bottom it shows updating and stops there
