Do you think React Native is a good starting point for someone who is a beginner in mobile apps development i.e. never touched Android studio, Java or Kotlin & Objective C or Swift for iOS; but has web development experience?
If so, do you think one would miss out on anything say difficulty in debugging or finding out root cause of a certain issue reported by users should one not having any experience in pure mobile apps development?
It’s absolutely a good starting place! I started in the same situation apart from knowning java at the time.
Debugging I guess can be a bit slower than web depending on what you’re dealing with(e.g native level crashes), having said that the tooling is still very good. For debugging issues faced by users, using a combination of crashlytics and source maps can work really well.
