Most of the complexity comes from having to deal with ReactNative dependencies during packaging. They tend to change every week dramatically which is making it difficult to write a good guide. I’m talking to Alex a lot about it and we are trying to find a way to at least give some extra guidance. Some people deployed the apps successfully and we do this as a service, but it is indeed not a very simple process.
Yes, we just hide the template switcher in the app. Just thinking that it makes for a more predictable behaviour - some templates may not be particularly suitable for an app, so it best to stick to one.
