French future

Salut tout le monde!

I have a quick question for all of you francophones! :) My French is pretty good, but I've never been able to grasp the difference between using the future tense and using aller+infinitive. Can they be used interchangeably, or are there subtle differences?

To clarify:

"Je vais essayer d'y aller."
"J'essayerai d'y aller."

Is there a difference? Or,

"Je vais manger, et puis j'irai chez mon ami."

Can you use both forms in the same sentence, or is it weird?


Thanks in advance for your input! :)

Cheers,
Rissa
