In this chapter, you learned about handling images in your 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.

You learned the different approaches to loading images, and then how to resize them. You also learned how to implement a lazy image that uses a placeholder image to display while the actual image is loading. Finally, you learned how to use icons in a React Native app.

In the next chapter, we'll take a look at local storage in React Native, which is handy in offline scenarios.
