Aggressive Caching of Expo Application During Development

I’m working on an app that isn’t updating on my Android phone even though I’ve changed the actual code.

Just to be clear, I’m not talking about “Live Reload” or “Hot Reloading”. I’m talking about things like removing debugger statements in code. Shaking the phone to bring up the developer menu, and then pressing “Reload” so the application restarts. However, the application still stops at where the debugger was previously, and I can see that the debugger statement still exists in the Chrome debugger UI.

The only way I’ve been able to get around this is by going to the list of applications on my Android Phones (Motorola Nexus 6 and OnePlus 5), force closing the application, and manually pressing the “Clear Cache” button under storage.

I’m using Visual Studio Code with auto-save turned on, so I’m pretty sure the files are updating.

Did anything happen to caching in the most recent XDE update?
