When you start a new project, one of the main concerns is development time. After all, your market is changing all the time, and the longer you wait, the bigger the likelihood that someone else will implement the idea before you, thus getting the competitive advantage. But if you have a working version of your product, either to show to investors or to gain traction of your business, you can get ahead of your competition. Many companies also start with an MVP to get to know the real needs of the users. In this article, we’d like to check if using Flutter for MVP hybrid app development is a good idea.

In this blogpost we’ll try to figure out how to choose the right architecture for mobile app development.

Mobile applications have been with us for more than 10 years. Within that time, the mobile development market has significantly changed. At the beginning developers were limited to native platform-specific applications which were not able to work on different systems. The growing demand for mobile apps brought new ideas for shortening development time. And that’s how cross-platform development was born. Near-native platforms, such as React Native or Flutter, are gaining ground and offering better opportunities to build native-like experiences. Today, we want to discuss the pros and cons of such solutions.

Before the release of iOS 12, if your app offered a specific category of service (e.g. messaging or payments), it could integrate Siri to let the user perform certain actions (intents) in response to spoken commands.
