This is an iOS Messages app clone I created in React Native. It should be quite simular to the real thing.
$ git clone https://github.com/marcusfrdk/messages-clone.git messages && cd messages
$ yarn install
Development with an iOS simulator:
$ yarn ios
$ yarn android
$ yarn start
Then follow instructions in the new tab in your web-browser.
The only API I am currently using is https://randomuser.me.
Why did you create this?
Mostly for fun, but also to learn more about React Native and what is possible. I will be adding features I think Apple should implement as well.
How do I use this?
It will be a close copy from the real thing. Meaning if you already know the app, it should be fairly intuitive.
Can I contribute?
Of course, feel free to add your own features to it, that would only be fun! Make a PR and I will add it.
Can I use it for Android?
It works, but is not optimized. It’s neither created for the Android platform visually. Logically it works fine though.
