Getting better as a developer means you stop using StackOverflow

I don't think this is true. StackOverflow is still a valuable source of information.

I tend to skim answers to see if I can find what I'm looking for. I rarely even read the question in full.

Yes, I strongly disagree with this first conclusion.

I saw that it depends on which language or framework you use. There is more information on Android and say PHP on StackOverflow, while newer stuff like React Native isn't represented as much on there.

That's actually a good point! I usually do find myself referencing the official docs for React.
