Mortenson admitted that the switch from HTML5 to React Native has been a challenge. He said, “It was a really big shift we had to make. We decided the phones were not yet powerful enough to have a really awesome, first-class experience for iOS and Android (News - Alert), so we bit the bullet.”
Enter Facebook Infer, a tool intended to detect bugs in Android and iOS apps before they ship. Mortenson said, “We haven’t had as much success open-sourcing Android projects to date, but Infer is one of the projects that we’ve released this year that has a very strong Android resonance.” It is a static analysis tool that can produce a list of potential bugs if you supply it with Objective-C, Java, or C code. Mortenson also announced that Facebook would be open-sourcing Infer.
