This is an annoying issue because is particularly hard to debug. My app looks perfect on expo client, in simulator or device. However, when I build for IOS and push to AppStore, final app looks very different. Particularly, images are not resized, all icons are wrong size. Also the colors look slightly different between the final app and app running in expo client. Colors on the standalone app look slightly darker
The issue turned out to be from using resizeMode="center". For some reason that I cannot figure out the center on iOS standalone app works like “contain”. I changed all the resizeModes in the app and it looks fine now.
For the color difference I have no explanation, but future build didn’t have the color issue.
