Lunching – a food delivery app developed for iOS and Android

A simple and clear MVP application for iOS and Android brought to life with Flutter

Uber Eats, DoorDash, Delivery Hero, and Lunching.pl – these food delivery apps are changing the way we order our takeaway food.

We decided to build a cross-platform app based on the Flutter framework as an internal project. Food ordering and delivery apps are perfect for Flutter because of the low level of complexity – yet they need to have a beautiful design to present tasty food photos and a quick and user-friendly ordering flow.



Flutter is a very promising cross-platform technology. I was surprised how easily the team could begin working on Flutter applications and how quickly the first results were delivered.

What is Flutter?

Flutter is an open-source SDK developed by Google that enables developers to create high-quality, cross-platform applications with a single codebase. Unlike traditional libraries or frameworks, Flutter is a complete UI software development kit, providing everything you need to build stunning apps for:

  • Android

  • iOS

  • Desktop

  • Web

Flutter’s secret sauce lies in its ability to support non-standard web apps with complex UI/UX, while offering a vast library of UI components (Widgets) that help save on development costs and achieve a fast development cycle, all thanks to the Flutter framework.

The versatility of Flutter is showcased in its ability to run on multiple operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, Linux, and web applications, providing a consistent user interface across platforms. The Flutter team continuously works to improve its features and performance, as seen in the recent release of Flutter 3, which now supports macOS and Linux desktop apps, Firebase integration, native development support for Apple Silicon, and many productivity and performance enhancements.

Notably, Flutter’s hot reload feature impresses many, as it enables developers to:

  • Visualize changes in real-time without restarting the app

  • Speed up the development process

  • Make it easier to experiment with different layouts and designs.

How does Flutter work?

At its core, Flutter uses the Dart programming language, its own rendering engine, and a vast collection of customizable widgets. This powerful combination allows for rapid development, smooth animations, and a consistent look and feel across all platforms.

Flutter widgets are the building blocks of the user interface and are inspired by React. They offer a huge selection of pre-made, customizable UI components, including stateful widgets, which can be combined to create unique and visually appealing layouts. The Dart programming language plays a crucial role in Flutter, as it supports both strong and weak typing styles, making it accessible to newcomers. Additionally, Dart handles both layout and code in one place, as everything in Flutter is a widget, eliminating the need for mediators and making Flutter faster and more efficient than its competitors like React Native.

Some of the cool native device features Flutter offers include access to the camera and geolocation, as well as support for over 30 packages for state management. Furthermore, the hot reload feature enables instantaneous visualization of code changes in an emulator, eliminating the need for app recompilation and relaunch. This makes Flutter an attractive option for developers looking to create high-performance apps with real-time updates and notifications.

Why should you consider Flutter for app development?

Multiple factors make Flutter a compelling choice for app development, including its support for cross platform development. One of the most significant advantages is the ability to use a single codebase for multiple platforms. This means you can create Android, iOS, desktop, and web versions of your app using the same code, saving time and resources. Additionally, Flutter’s native-level performance ensures that your app runs smoothly and efficiently on all platforms, providing a seamless user experience.

Additionally, Flutter’s ability to facilitate faster development cycles is another attractive feature. With its vast library of ready-made widgets and the hot reload feature, developers can quickly prototype, test, and iterate on their app designs, speeding up the development process and reducing costs. Furthermore, the growing ecosystem of libraries and tools available for Flutter makes it easier for developers to enhance their app’s features and boost productivity.

From an enterprise app development perspective, Flutter offers the following benefits:

  • Scalability and robustness, attributed to its hot reload feature and compatibility with large codebases

  • Handy code and UI debugging tools that work on both platforms, ensuring a smooth development process

  • High-quality final product

How do Flutter widgets help in mobile app development

Flutter widgets significantly contribute to mobile app development, offering an extensive assortment of customizable UI components for creating unique and visually captivating layouts. This streamlines the Flutter app development process and ensures a consistent user experience across platforms, making Flutter app development services highly sought after.

Some of the popular widget categories in Flutter include Material Design widgets and Cupertino widgets, which help create a consistent user interface across platforms. These widgets, along with the hot reload feature, contribute to a fast development cycle, allowing developers to quickly prototype, test, and iterate on their app designs.

Nevertheless, employing Flutter widgets for UI coding can pose challenges, especially for large applications that may necessitate up to 10 code layers to create a basic object. As a result, developers need to plan their app structure carefully and consider how to best utilize Flutter widgets when building apps to create visually appealing and efficient layouts.

Easy to learn

When using a new SDK in a project, you should always take a closer look at how many people are using it and how steep the learning curve is. In the case of Flutter, both are very promising. While the main challenge is knowledge of Dart (frameworks like React Native use the more popular JavaScript), even beginner developers can build quick prototypes and apps with Flutter.

Thanks to Google's support and developers contributing to the open source project, Flutter is growing rapidly. This means that there is an increasing number of Flutter developers, making it more accessible to businesses.

Superb documentation

Flutter is easy to learn – while the main challenge is getting to know Dart (React Native uses the more popular JavaScript), even beginner developers can build fast prototypes and apps with Flutter. Thanks to the work of the open source community, and under Google's supervision, Flutter is growing very fast.

Flutter has clear and well-written documentation, and there are valuable tutorials available online, plus it has a growing community of developers around the world who are happy to provide support. This means that there are more and more young developers using Flutter, making it more accessible to businesses.

Hot reload for faster design

Flutter features hot reload, a valuable function that boosts the productivity of developers. Hot reload lets developers see their changes in real time, allowing them to code faster and with greater accuracy.

What is Flutter, and how can it benefit my project?

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions our clients ask about Flutter:
Should my company use Flutter?

Flutter has a range of advantages – here are a few of the types of businesses that can benefit from it:

  • Companies that care about the quick release of applications.
  • Companies that don't have their own backend.
  • Companies that want to verify their idea and quickly build a proof of concept or an MVP.
  • Companies that want to create simple applications using a single code base.
  • Companies that want to provide the users of their app with a similar experience on Android and iOS operating systems.

What are the main benefits of using Flutter?
Excellent performance

Thanks to its architecture and engineering design, Flutter aims to provide 60 or 120 frames per second (fps) performance on devices capable of 120Hz screen refresh rates. It lets you build very responsive and user-friendly apps.

Less code

While React Native allows you to share over 90% of the code between the Android and iOS apps, in the case of Flutter you can practically reuse 100% of the code. This speeds up the development process and makes your product less susceptible to mistakes.

Support for native modules

Flutter can interact with cameras, networks, geolocation, and storage flawlessly. The support for native modules was one of the biggest barriers for hybrid mobile development, and Google's Flutter may have found a way to break through.
What is custom Flutter app development?

Custom-made Flutter apps have the advantage of suiting the’ exact needs of an organization. They can provide a better presentation of products, for example, through 3D interactive models, or take advantage of GPS data to offer better recommendations. They are built with security in mind, which means it’s safe to process sensitive data through them. These features make tailored Flutter apps fantastic tools for employees in the field.

They can also be used on-premises to make processes like packaging and distribution more efficient. There’s an infinite number of possible uses for custom mobile and web applications built with Flutter. It’s no wonder that so many companies are using them to gain a competitive advantage.
