The 10 Popular Expo SDK Snacks

One of the advantages of using Expo SDK  it’s wide of different components that you can include into your project. I prepared a list of some popular modules/components which are commonly used in the most of React Native projects built with Expo. You can easily test most of all these Snacks in the browser. Also, you can test these examples on the device by installing Expo client for Android here and for IOS here.

All examples are provided for Expo SDK v27.0.0. If you need to upgrade your Expo project, you can check the official article in Expo documentation and my previous article.
