If you wish to create a mobile app that runs on both Android and iOS, then Flutter can be the right option. As experienced Flutter users, we will be happy to assist you in this process.
It can sometimes be a challenge to run a mobile app that has to support both Android and iOS. The reason is that you have to continually manage and adjust each operating system’s codebase differently to make the app work on both devices. Flutter removes this obstacle because the toolkit only has one codebase that covers both Android and iOS from start. Additionally, Flutter still allows you to fully customize and adapt your mobile app to each device. In this way, you are able to take advantage of the functionality of native apps as well as the flexibility and the lower costs that come with hybrid apps. To use Google’s own words, Flutter hereby makes it possible to develop "hybrid apps with native performance".
Below, we have listed some of the main advantages of Flutter.
Reduced development time
As mentioned, you only have to concentrate on one single codebase when working with hybrid apps made in Flutter. Naturally, this saves you a lot of time when developing and maintaining your app for each mobile platform.
In addition to reducing development time, Flutter also lets you edit and update your app instantly. By means of a feature called Hot reload, the Flutter framework automatically checks the code that you have edited and then quickly reloads the app in accordance with the updated code. This makes it a lot easier to experiment with your mobile app.
Being an open-source framework, Flutter gives you the opportunity to both give and gain feedback, including the code, from other Flutter users.
Advanced OS features
Flutter provides advanced OS features like GPS coordinates, sensor data collection, permission handling, Bluetooth, and other features in ready-to-use plugins supported by Google. This further amplifies the native functionality of your Flutter application.
