Is unreal good for building mobile apps
Hi, unreal is probably good for building mobile games, but I need to make an app for Android and iOS. I was wondering if it has everything for apps. App doesnt need to be too complex, so I need only basic staff. The reason why I want to use unreal or maybe unity is that I need to implement 3d model in app, which will be able to rotate around its center on dragging(showcasing or something like that). And I dont know if its possible anywhere else.

My experience with Unreal on Android was this: If your game is small and really simple, Unreal might not be the best option. The package got way bigger than it needed. You might get a 30mb game while the same game made with another tools might got around 10mb. That's because the Unreal core for Android is already big.
But the packages won't grow much, once you got it work, the additional content will not make your packages grow that much.
Another point is to about your develop itself, since it's quite easy to create wonderful visual effects on Unreal, you may trap yourself on amazing graphics on PC tests that got really slow on mobile devices (I, personally, falled on that WAY too much!)

I am new to Unreal and I have 8 years of experience on Unity.
I have found no documentation whatsoever for mobile development. And I have been stuck for 2 weeks replicating a simple AR app that I already did on Unity in 4 hours.
I am not joking... There is absolutely no documentation for professional AR development.
I will tell you even more... If you want to use the latest ARCore version, you will have to build Unreal from source code! Don't believe me? check for yourself the official ARCore quickstart for Unreal ("QUICK"start lol)... https://developers.google.com/ar/develop/unreal/quickstart
For mobile development, Unity is year-lights ahead of Unreal in terms of documentation. For other platforms, I have no idea.
