In this chapter, we learned about handling images in our React Native applications. Images in a native application are just as important in a native mobile context as they are in a web context – they improve the user experience.
We learned about the different approaches to loading images, as well as how to resize them. We also learned how to implement a lazy image, which displays a placeholder image while the actual image is being loading in. Finally, we learned how to use icons in a React Native app.
In the next chapter, we'll learn about local storage in React Native, which is handy when our app goes offline.
