Fix Android bug

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.
> SDK location not found. Define location with an ANDROID_SDK_ROOT environment variable or by setting the sdk.dir path in your project's local properties file at ‘/YOUR_APP_PATH/android/local.properties'.

SOLUTION: Create a local.properties file in android folder and setting the sdk.dir path: https://prnt.sc/rb6wrw

warn Failed to connect to development server using "adb reverse": spawnSync adb ENOENT

SOLUTION: Type source ~/.bash_profile to load the config into your current shell. Verify that ANDROID_HOME has been added to your path by running echo $PATH.
