Exponent app for React Native developers
Exponent is a fantastic Development Tool that will unleash React Native developer skills by enabling you to develop and test iOS apps without the need for Xcode or even a Mac! Only thing you'll need is React Native and a iOS 8+ device.
Actually, Exponent is so advanced that will let you simulate an iOS device in your browser.
If you were impressed by the React Native Playground now all of that power is a command away from you.
Again, all of this is possible thanks to the Appetize.io's iOS & Android Simulators in the Browser.
With Exponent, you can write React Native experiences with any computer and a text editor and a phone. No need for Xcode or a simulator.
