Please provide the following:
- SDK Version: 43
- Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android
- Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.
Replace this section with as much relevant information as possible and any relevant code along with your question.
I’m developing a cab booking app ( rider app / driver app ).
It’s been developed since expo SDK 38 , managed workflow .
The main things I use for the app are :
1- background location.
2- push notifications .
-The background location has always crashed my app until SDK 42 . But again on SDK 43 which doesn’t make sense.
- push notifications response not firing when app is killed since SDK 38 , sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t , couldn’t figure it out.
The thing is that I’ve waited for SDK 43 to fix a bug related to Image picker that restarted the application upon selecting an image.
As soon as I upgraded to SDK 43 I noticed crashing again on background location , giving me no choice but downgrade to SDK 42 .
I thought that expo build is being deprecated so all the focus is on EAS build. So I gave it a try :
I noticed many differences on my builds , to name few :
Lot of display bugs , black squares covering the navigator .
App launch Is a little weird .
closing and launching the app immediately ignores splash screen.
Without digging much more I went back to expo build : SDK 42 .
So I couldn’t benefit from reducing my app size as well as fixing my previously mentioned issues .
Why does EAS build behave differently ?
And why don’t you expend Beta Period to make sure things go right .
