:rocket: Publish

Now you can publish, save, and share your app with others! And when you publish, we generate a unique URL to your app so you can easily show off your progress. No installation required!

:athletic_shoe: External Actions

We’ve added new actions that enable you to open a website in-app and externally link outside of your app with any Button or Touchable in a project. If you want to open a browser inside your app, use WebBrowser. If you want to leave the app, use Linking. Linking allows you to open any of the following:

  • Email: Use mailto://joe@example.com to open an email using the default email client.
  • Telephone: Use tel://+12222222222 to initiate a call.
  • SMS: Use sms://+12222222222 to open a new sms message.
  • Web: Use https://example.com to open a website in the device’s default browser.
  • Maps: Use maps:// to open maps
  • Any other app: (You just need to google for the URL schema).
