It’s generally accepted nowadays in Android that the exit dialog is an anti-pattern. Here’s a post from way back in 2012 making that case: https://www.androiddesignpatterns.com/2012/08/exit-application-dialogs-are-evil-dont.html. If the user presses back at the top of an app’s navigation stack, the expected behavior is to simply exit the app (i.e. finish the top activity).
Glad you liked the article. I haven’t considered creating my own
MainReactPackage but that’s an interesting idea I’ll have to research further. The OkHttp version issue I mentioned in my post hasn’t been an issue recently, but I included it to highlight the possibility of similar conflicts in the future.
Yep, I’ve been playing with Flutter lately. I love how well it integrates with Android Studio. Like React Native, it was easy to get some basic UI features working pretty quickly. I’m looking forward to seeing it refined further and more third party libraries.
