The development of the color list application continues in this lesson by Alex Banks. Students incorporate the AsyncStore into the Color List app and save the colors that are added by the user. The AsyncStore allows data to persist within native applications.
- [Instructor] So far we've worked…with React Native components that affect the user interface.…React Native also comes with a bunch of native components…that allow you to interact with the core APIs available…on each device.…In this next chapter,…we will take a look at how we can interact with these APIs…to enhance our applications.…The first API component that we will look at…is called AsyncStorage.…You can use this component to save data on your device.…AsyncStorage automatically handles…persisting the data natively.…In iOS, AsyncStorage uses the dictionary…and sometimes the file system.…
On Android, AsyncStorage uses the SQLite or RocksdDB…depending upon which database is available.…Let's use AsyncStorage to save any colors…that we want to add to the application…that we built in the last chapter.…The color list.…So currently I have the application that we've built…in the last chapter running in the iPhone six simulator.…We have live reload enabled…and I also have the source code loaded in Atom…right next to the simulator.…
