Is Flutter better choice for App development?

Yes, at Dart Innovations our choice is Flutter for the new Apps development especially when come into cross-platform Mobile Apps.

Flutter is Google’s mobile app SDK, complete with a framework, widgets, and tools, that gives developers an easy way to build and deploy visually attractive, fast mobile apps on both Android and iOS platforms. It has all the elements from cross-platform and native development models to build robust applications in minimal time.

Few reasons why Flutter becomes best choice for Mobile App development.

# Single Codebase

Since it is a cross-platform framework, it allows programmers to write code once and they can use it on multiple platforms. This means that a single version of an application runs on both iOS, Android, Web and Desktop. This saves a lot of time and effort in writing code for different platforms, as with native frameworks. This consequently saves a lot on the overall cost of developing and launching the app.

# Open Source

The best thing in Flutter is an open-source code development toolkit by Google. It provides easy posting of issues and access to documentation from open developer forums. It helps Flutter programmers to learn and grow with the ever-changing population of developers who actively contribute to the platform. To increases the efficiency and productivity of the coder and results in less time and cost for the entire project. You can get many templates and scripts from community for free or tiny cost which lets you start your App development quickly.

# Faster Code Writing

For developers, Flutter means faster & more dynamic mobile app development. We can make changes in the code and see them straight away in the app! This is the so-called Hot reload, which usually only takes (milli) seconds and helps teams add features, fix bugs, and experiment faster. Hot reload is very comfortable in Team environment when a designer, developer and testers working together to make quick changes and improve the design or functional spot.

# Customizable Widgets

Flutter contains a comprehensive list of widgets for designing UI interface. The widgets are customizable and are reusable, making it useful for further development. Flutter also contains two sets of widgets: Material Design and Cupertino. The Material Design implements Google’s design and Cupertino implements Apple’s iOS Human interface guidelines. This gives a lot of creative options for developers to build sleek looking apps.

Delight your users by providing expressive, beautiful UIs using Flutter’s built-in Material Design and Cupertino (iOS-flavor) widgets, rich motion APIs, smooth natural scrolling, and platform awareness.

# Native Like Performance

Flutter’s widgets incorporate all critical platform differences such as scrolling, navigation, icons and fonts, and your Flutter code is compiled to native ARM machine code using Dart’s native compilers. This is because it uses Dart programming language, which is fast, simple, and can easily compile into native code. It improves the performance of the application as compared to any other cross-platform app development platform.

# Best for MVP

The MVP (minimum viable product) is the product requiring minimum functionality and features to understand the needs of the target audience while also getting enough validation for further iteration of the product. The MVP prototype expresses the core of the business idea and is designed to carry out the main business goal. MVP is preferred when you want to get your business faster into the market or to show your investors your working prototype. Flutter is perfect to use when building a minimum viable product for your business as it speeds up the development process and adds an attractive UI design layout.

# Growing Flutter Community

The Flutter community is growing, and more developers are collaborating and sharing their ideas on the forum day by day. You can find developers’ contributions to the Flutter library. If you have any doubts or queries, you can share your questions on social media, or submit them in forums.

Flutter has many more advantages for business and development teams. It’s a great choice to build beautiful, high-performance, and outstanding mobile apps that fit your custom needs and requirements. It’s worth considering Flutter, especially if you want a MobileApp both for iOS and Android.
