Add android project for your app
If you either have apps generated with pre-android support or just did that on purpose, you can always add android project to your app.
$ react-native android
This will generate android folder and index.android.js inside your app.
$ react-native log-android
$ react-native log-ios
Start React Native Packager
$ react-native start
On latest version of React Native, no need to run the packager. It will run automatically.
