Getting App Version with Expo and React Native (Updated)
February 8, 2022
Hey! Just a note, this has been pulled from my old site so, while this site is being built, some things may not work correctly or look right during the migration.
A while ago you may have seen that I made a post called Get the current App Version with Expo and React Native. I made that post when I could only build and run on Android which it seemed to work perfectly fine on however, recently, I noticed that this doesn't seem to work correctly now but I have found a solution!
The solution lies within expo-application. This includes information about the app itself, natively, on the platform. Using nativeApplicationVersion you can get the App Version that's native on the platform.
Rather than posting individual steps, I made a snack! And I don't mean that in the food snack, sadly. I mean an Expo Snack! You can see all the code in the neat box just below this text!
Thanks for having a read, hopefully, this helped you. If it did, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-Fi at https://ko-fi.com/rhyce.
