Cross-platform Mobile App Development Made Easy

Flutter is Google's mobile app software development kit (SDK) made to build cross-platform applications. It's a complete environment with a framework, widgets, and tools, which gives you the opportunity to develop mobile apps efficiently. Thanks to rich widgets, Flutter apps look and feel great. You can create your own custom app design or use ready UI elements following specific platforms’ guidelines.

Flutter includes a modern React-style framework where apps are written in Dart. Thanks to its rich documentation even a novice developer can quickly build a prototype with it. Google engineers tried hard to deliver as many competitive advantages as possible, which makes the mobile app development process smooth while reducing the cost of app production at the same time.

Get native UX with a single cross-platform code base

Flutter is an open source software, so everyone has access to the source code and can use it for free. The SDK uses a C++ rendering engine and is based on the Dart programming language.

Flutter provides widgets out of the box, and its architecture is based on reactive programming, which means it's asynchronous, with data streams and propagation of change. This makes the app responsive and gives perfect usability to the user. Flutter also has some significant advantages over other Android and iOS SDKs.

Customizable UI widgets

 

The development model is based on objects. In Flutter, each object - button or a font - is a widget. Widgets are at the core of the Flutter concept: using them is a lot like building with blocks. At the same time, your Flutter development team gets access to the lowest level of the code, where they can create new widgets - designed for your needs. They will do so using the same tools the Flutter team used to build the default widgets.

01

Easy to learn

 

When choosing a technology, 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 the 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, the young technology is growing rapidly. This means that there are more and more young engineers using this technology,  making it more accessible to businesses.

01

Dart is modern and effective

 

The language behind Flutter is similar to C++ and Java. Dart is accessible even for beginners thanks to its unsurprising object orientation and syntax. Additionally, it combines both ahead-of-time (AOT) and just-in-time (JIT) compilation, which gives you high performance of the app. Unlike the languages used in native Android development, Dart does not need separate XML files from the layout, which means faster and easier development.

01

Cross-cultural accessibility

 

With Flutter you don't have to worry about internationalization: Flutter supports 24 languages. Apart from this, it has built-in currencies, dates, units of measure, as well as layout options adapted to the languages that are not written from left to right. You have all this included in the Dart intl package. Moreover, Flutter is fully accessible by providing large fonts, enhanced contrast, and screen readers for users who need it.

01

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 Google's supervision the young technology is growing very fast. Flutter has clear and well-written documentation and there are valuable tutorials available online. This means that there are more and more young engineers using this technology,  making it more accessible to businesses.

What are the main benefits of using Flutter?

Fast development
You get a universal set of UI building blocks you may assemble using a clear layered architecture. Additionally hot reload allows you to experiment freely, add features, and remove bugs in no time, which is perfect for your MVP.
Flexible UI
The widgets are adaptable and make your UI flexible, so you can reuse the modules and whole sets of components in different layout configurations. Flutter also brings to the table an ability for real-time UI iteration, which enables flexible customization.
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 let you build very responsive and user-friendly apps.
Hot Reload
With Hot Reload you can see every change you make immediately in the app. Every feature or fix is applied there within seconds. It makes a big difference for software developers as immediate feedback makes coding much easier, faster, and more precise. 
Less code
While React Native allows you to share over 90% of the code between the Android and iOS apps, in 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, network, 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.

The differences between Flutter and React Native?

If you want to deliver a product for both Android and iOS users, you have two options. You can either make two separate native applications or use hybrid development and write a codebase that can be shared by both operating systems. This is what React Native and Flutter do. Both environments are open-source and free to use. So what are the differences?

JavaScript vs. Dart

From the inside - it's one of the biggest differences. The popularity of React Native is powered by JavaScript, which is the most frequently used software development technology at the moment. However, Google wanted to come up with something equally good, making Dart easy to learn for the developers.

Widgets vs. direct communication with iOS and Android

Talking about flexibility and customization, Flutter offers a rich set of customized widgets to build beautiful experiences. React Native, on the other side, offers seamless user experience by directly communicating with the native platforms.

External packages

Both Flutter and React Native have many third-party packages, however React Native offers more ready-to-use modules. Flutter was only officially launched in May 2017, so its packages aren't that numerous. However, this should change with time.

Established vs. fast-growing community

React Native was the first hybrid development framework and it uses JavaScript - the most dominant technology for building mobile and web applications. This is enough to gather an impressive community of professionals around it. Ultimately, many solutions to common problems are already in place. On the other hand, Google consistently promotes its solution and Flutter is winning over developers.

Code recycling and styling

With Flutter you can overwrite the code you previously used. This feature is very useful when you want to reuse some of the code for another purpose. In React Native recycling is restricted only to a handful of basic components, which is why in most cases it takes a lot of time to style apps and platforms built with React Native.

New vs. Old

At the moment, React Native is the go-to hybrid development toolkit. There are more libraries, use cases, and community resources for React Native. On the other hand, Flutter (and Dart) were designed using all the hybrid app development experience. It addresses the main issues, which are the compatibility of platform-specific modules and UI elements with the hybrid solution. It may take some time, but Flutter should catch up. With more than 30,000 Github stars already, Flutter is quickly cutting the distance to React Native, which has 65,000 stars.

For which applications flutter is a good solution?

From the business point of view, Flutter has two main advantages - it's very fast to build with and it works great on both Android and iOS. If you need a prototype or an MVP fast, want to target both Android and iOS users, deliver a beautiful experience similar to native apps, and at the same time be able to quickly adjust to feedback from users - you should definitely consider building your product with Flutter.
