Hey @henrymoulton,

Would you mind creating a Snack that replicates the issue so I can test this on my end?


Hey Adam,

Creating a Snack might not be the best reproduction as I’m using vanilla React Native CLI with Unimodules.

Do you think an example repository would be better?

Hey @adamjnav,

I think this issue is related: https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/1948

I’m putting together an example repo with unimodules now.
