  • However with the Android market share being pretty high, we had to make sure our app worked on both Android and iOS.
  • We wanted the iOS app to look and feel native.That’s where React Native came into the picture.
  • Could React Native pull this off and still look native?A few months down the line, with our iOS and Android app on the respective stores, I can tell you the journey was nothing but spectacular.

Introducing Marketplace: Buy and Sell with Your Local Community

  • Marketplace opens with photos of items that people near you have listed for sale.
  • Selling an item in Marketplace is just as easy as browsing for one.
