Bundle vector-icon with the app for offline access

I used 2 icons with Ionicons from @expo/vector-icons. Is there a way to bundle the 2 icons to the app such that the user would not require internet connection to get the icons rendered?

I have also noticed something strange: https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/icons.html#existing-projects
I didn’t actually have to add those fields to my app.json. The 2 icons i used are ios-checkbox and ios-square-outline. Is that only required for certain icons?

hi @avery5215, unfortunately we dont support bundling assets. wrt to the docs, they are out of date and you are correct that you dont actually have to add those fields to your app.json. sorry for the inconvenience
