    It's build using Appcelerator (Titanium, like said before in this thread).

    Maybe it doesn't feel "natural" if compared to Material Design apps, but I don't see it as unnatural, once DevRant's app has its own unique design.

    Btw, Appcelerator uses all the native iOS and Android's API to create apps and behavior, so I think it is just a matter of design. :)

    Right, @dfox?

    @felipebhz thanks for the info. yeah i noticed that when I turned on layout boundary from developer settings, every components have its bound. so im just confused of whether or not this has been built natively or hybrid.

    @aimanb It is hybrid, but, Appcelerator "converts" every code to native ones. You write like 70% of 'platform-neutral' code and the others 30% are definitions for each platform. They use Javascript and then compile it to native code for each platform.
