    Geolocation APIs for React Native

    For location, you can use the [geolocation library](https://github.com/michalchudziak/react-native-geolocation). If for some reason the user blocks this permission, a neat little trick is to call this API, [https://ipapi.co/json/\]([https://ipapi.co/json/](https://ipapi.co/json/)). They will get the users Longitude and Latitude based on the requesting IP. Of course, that will be masked if they have a VPN running. But it is a second attempt at getting a location.
