I guess my question is whether or not you use the Android or iOS simulator to work with React Native apps. I have a MacBook pro that I’ve been using for a couple of years now (like 4 years give or take) and running the iOS simulator seems like a pain, it’s way too slow.
react-native run-ios to start the simulator for the development process takes forever, like 15 minutes or more. Then after it’s finally up, my MacBook feels slow, it’s very annoying. I’m using xcode for the simulator BTW.
I was wondering if anyone here has experienced the same and found a better way to work with React Native.
Would it be just better to use my Iphone instead of the simulator? Is this related to launching the xcode app by any chance?, is Android simulator lighter?
