Flutter App Development for Android and iOS Platforms
Posted By : Khushboo Arora | 15-Sep-2019
The demand for mobile applications has increased rapidly in recent years. Today, Google and Apple host more than two million applications on their respective app stores. Retailers, healthcare institutes, eCommerce companies, banking, and financial institutes are investing in mobile apps to provide on-the-go access to customers. Since an app is the face value of your brand it is essential to concentrate on its performance. Mobile app development plays a significant role in the functioning of an app.
Some of the most famous App Development Frameworks known for improving the performance of an app:
The above listed mobile app development frameworks were designed to improve apps performance and reduce downtime. In this article, we will discuss Google’s Software Development Kit (SDK) “Flutter”.
Flutter has recently gained huge popularity amongst app developers. Let's explore some reasons for the popularity of flutter app development:
Single Code for Multiple Platforms: Flutter’s cross-platform compatibility enables developers to use one codebase to develop apps for both Android and iOS platforms. It also gives a start on developing for Google’s Fuchsia platform which is an all-new experimental OS under construction. Many developers think Fuchsia will replace Android in the near future.
Perfect for an MVP: Flutter is an ideal app development framework to showcase your products to investors at an early stage. Developers can build a flutter mobile application that looks native on both iOS and Android operating systems. With Flutter, app developers can create a minimum viable product (MVP) to show investors how their products will look. For instance, A newly launched eCommerce platform can create MVP to display investors’ how their products will be showcased.
Less Code: Launched in 2015, Flutter is an open-source web application framework that uses Dart, an object-oriented programming language. Dart’s compilation with Just-in-Time (JIT) has improved the development cycles by providing hot reload capability. Dart’s compilation with Ahead-of-Time (AOT) reduces app startup time and improves app performance. With Dart, developers can create smooth animations and transitions that run at 60fps. Flutter app development uses fewer codes to encounter fewer bugs.
Amazing Widgets: widgets are important for an app’s view and interface. Flutter has a rich set of widgets and capabilities to create complex custom widgets. In Flutter, widgets are used for views, entire screens and even for the app itself. Each widget in Flutter is an immutable declaration of part of the UI. Most of the mobile app development frameworks separate view controllers, views, layouts, and other properties. Flutter is different, it has a unified object model with full set of widgets in Google’s material design and Apple’s style with the Cupertinipack. Widget rendering happens in the Skia engine without original equipment manufacturer widgets. It gives a smoother user interface when compared to other cross-platform frameworks.

Access to native features: Flutter gives the feel of developing a native platform to perform functions like camera and geolocation. It enables app developers to reuse the existing Swift, Java, and Objective-C code to access native features and SDKs on iOS and Android.
Direct Support from the Developers : Flutter is Google’s initiative,therefore, app developers can take direct support from their material design team and developers.
