In this chapter, you learned how to show your users that something is happening behind the scenes. First, we discussed why showing progress is important for the usability of an application. Then, we implemented a basic screen that indicated progress was being made. After that, we implemented a ProgressBar component, which is used to measure specific progress amounts.
Indicators are good for indeterminate progress. We implemented navigation that showed progress indicators while network calls were pending. In the final section, we implemented a progress bar that showed the user where they were in a predefined number of steps.
In the next chapter, we'll look at React Native maps and geolocation data in action.
