this.setState({ loading: true });
.then(res => res.json())
.then(res => {
loading: false,
error: res.error || null,
data1: res
()=> {
.catch(error => {
this.setState({ error, loading: false }, () => {

I am trying to access Remote HTTP Api on my local machine. The API is working perfectly on Postmant as well as on Chrome in my local machine. But When make Fetch call using Expo React Native Fetch I am getting the following error:

Finally I solve this issue. The problem is with the networking. My mobile device and the API hosted server was not in the same network.
