Random blank screen on expo sdk 36

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 36
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all
export default class AppleEula extends React.Component {
  static navigationOptions = {
      title: 'AppleEula',
      header: null,
      gesturesEnabled: false, // this line

I had this code in my react native app. Navigating to this screen from my App.js would animate the transition and then just travel to a blank white screen. I spent a whole day trying to figure it out. The worst part – this blank thing was happening with some screens and not with other screens. I just figured out what caused the problem. It was that line with the comment.

gesturesEnabled: true (on the screen which I am navigating to) seems to fix the problem.

Another way to fix the problem was to take the navigate() line out of my setTimeOut() method in App.js. But I needed that to be inside setTimeOut() so my animations could play out. Have no idea why this is but I almost broke my production app and my entire sign up process because of this error. It is not mentioned in the docs and has no available solutions. I am posting this just to help others who might face this.

I don’t know how this bug came about, but Expo Team, please please fix this!

Hi. That is rather surprising, but it seems that the React Navigation team might be the best place to report this:

same problem

you can try

gestureResponseDistance: {
horizontal: -9999
