The most amazing JS/React sandbox app I’ve ever used.

Ive used many mobile IDEs ever since iPad Pro first came out and this is the very first Javascript focused IDE that’s as good as Pythonista is for Python. It looks like no other app out there, with a window manager and desktop-like environment. If you have an idea and just want to start coding, opening this app and starting a RN project is faster than running create-react-native-app on Desktop.

Impressive — just what I needed!

Wow! Thank you 🙏🏽. This app is exactly what I needed to allow me to conveniently experiment with react native without having to fire up my Mac. The editor and DEV environment are extremely functional and user friendly. The documentation is a pleasant bonus. The two together present a very impressive learning and productivity tool. Wow!!!

I normally don’t post reviews

But I felt I kinda had to for this app. The dev designed it to perform exactly as it promised...and wow. Very well executed. I can actually program/build react apps on the fly. Props to the developer for making the UI so smooth and akin to a desktop experience.
