Pros of Flutter app development


The best possible time-to-market, lower development costs, and awesome look & feel

Impressive time-to-market

Flutter offers more dynamic – and faster – app development. Thanks to Hot Reload feature, developers can make changes to the codebase on-the-fly, and see them immediately reflected in the app. It helps them fix bugs, add features, and experiment with new ideas in an instant.

1 codebase, 2 apps

Developers write just one codebase for two apps – covering both iOS and Android platforms. Flutter has its own widgets and designs, which means you can have the exact same app on two platforms, while if you want to differentiate your apps that’s just as easily achieved.

Faster apps

Flutter apps perform smoothly and fast, without ever hanging or cutting while scrolling. It’s because Dart – Flutter’s language – compiles into native code directly, without any additional “bridge”. Besides, the framework doesn't communicate with OEM widgets, as it uses its own. Flutter UI delivers 60fps.

Up to 50% less testing

Given you have the same app on both platforms, you test less. We write roughly 50% fewer automated tests because we can create the same tests to run on both platforms, reducing the demands on our QA team.

Designs your users will love

Thanks to rich, beautiful, and customizable widgets, Flutter apps look and feel great. You can create your own custom app design, but also use readily available UI elements following specific platforms’ guidelines.

Same app UI, even on older devices

Your new app will look the same, even on old versions of Android and iOS systems. There are no additional costs for supporting older devices. Flutter runs on Android Jelly Bean or newer, as well as iOS 8 or newer.

What is Flutter and who built it?

Flutter is a portable UI toolkit. In other words, it’s a comprehensive app Software Development Kit (SDK), complete with widgets and tools.

It was built by the Google team. But as an open-source project, both Google and the developers’ community contribute to its development.

What’s Flutter for?

Flutter enables cross-platform app development.

It gives developers an easy way to build and deploy visually attractive, natively-compiled applications for both Android and iOS, using a single codebase.

What’s more:

  • It’s free and open-source;
  • It’s based on Dart – a fast, object-oriented programming language; Dart focuses on front-end development, and you can use it to create mobile and web applications;
  • Flutter architecture is based on the very popular reactive programming (it follows the same style as React);
  • It provides its own widgets, drawn from its own high-performance rendering engine – these are fast, attractive and customizable;
  • Thanks to the widget experience, Flutter apps have a great look and feel (while you can still create your own custom app design using readily-available UI elements that follow specific platform guidelines).

What are the main benefits of using Flutter in mobile app development?

Delivering projects on time is one of the most critical aspects of mobile and web app development. The cross-platform nature of Flutter reduces the app’s time-to-market and its development costs. Other pros of Flutter are:

1. Hot Reload = fast coding

Developers can make changes to the codebase on-the-fly, and see them immediately reflected in the app. This is the so-called Hot reload feature which helps teams add features, fix bugs, and experiment with new ideas in an instant. It makes the app development process much more dynamic and faster.

2. Excellent performance

Flutter apps perform fast and smoothly – without ever hanging or cutting while scrolling. Why? Because Flutter uses the Skia Graphics Library. Flutter UI is smooth and delivers 60 or 120 fps(frames per second) performance on devices capable of 120Hz screen refresh rates. It enables building very responsive and user-friendly apps.

3.  Great look and feel thanks to rich widgets

Flutter apps have a particularly user-friendly UI, they stand out with super-attentiveness to the visual details. Flutter was created so that you could easily create your own widgets, or simply customize an existing widget.

4. Same app UI, even on older devices

Even new apps look the same on older iOS or Android systems, so you never have to worry about supporting older devices.

5. Perfect for MVPs

If you need to build an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) for your mobile app – say, as a showcase for potential investors – Flutter is the perfect option, especially if time is short.

6. Up to 50% less testing

Given you have the same application on both platforms, your Quality Assurance process will be much faster as you can test less. That said, you’ll still have to run manual testing at a similar level as with native programming – as your QA specialists will have to check both apps on each platform, by hand.

7. A rapidly growing community and popularity

8. Excellent documentation

Great documentation with strong support from the Flutter team which makes it easy to start developing with Flutter.

9. Improving Flutter for Web

offering the potential for one codebase across mobile and web platforms

UIFlutter apps look as good on the up-to-date operating systems as they do on older versions.

Since they only have one codebase, the apps look and behave similarly across iOS and Android – but thanks to Material Design and Cupertino widgets, they can also imitate the platform design itself. How’s that possible?

Flutter contains two sets of widgets which conform to specific design languages: Material Design widgets implement Google’s design language of the same name; Cupertino widgets imitate Apple’s iOS design.

This means that your Flutter app will look and behave naturally on each platform, imitating their native components. 

Application components look just like native ones (e.g. a button on an iOS device looks just like a native iOS button, and the same on Android).

The fact React Native uses native components under the hood should give you confidence that, after any OS UI update, your app’s components will be instantly upgraded as well.

That said, this can break the app’s UI but it happens very rarely.

If you want your app to look near-identical across platforms – as well as on older versions of an operating system (as Flutter achieves) – then consider using third-party libraries (like this one). They will enable you to use Material Design components, in place of native ones.

Sharing codeCurrently on iOS and Androidbut the long-term vision for Flutter is to offer an integrated solution that allows developers to write one code for both desktop & mobile, and for the web.

Flutter for Web support is available as a tech preview but still, this isn’t an alpha channel yet.

When it comes to developing desktop apps with Flutter, APIs are in their early stages of development and so will be probably released, just further down the line.

iOS and Android – but there are select libraries that allow you to use the same code to build iOS, Android, web, and Windows10 apps.

You can also extract shared code in mobile, desktop, and web apps, to a separate repository; treat it as a separate project; then inject it in the same way as another dependency.

This allows a developer to focus on writing code for a specific platform without having to consider compatibility with another one.

Time-to-marketTypically much faster than native development.Possibly as fast as development with Flutter.

However…

React Native uses bridge and native elements, so it may require separate optimization for each platform – a problem that widget-based Flutter doesn’t run into. It may make the app development with React Native longer.

When it is not the best fitIf…

• Your app needs to support 3D Touch (for now, Flutter doesn’t support 3D – but it features on the Flutter team’s long-term roadmap)

The design of your app is platform-specific

• Your app requires multiple interactions with an OS; or requires rare, little-known native libraries

• You need a minimalistic UI, but rely on significant use of the phone hardware (e.g. an application that plays music, or only takes pictures)

• You want to create an instant app (small-sized app)

If your app sounds like any of the above, it’s probably better you choose native app development.

Read more about these cases here >>

If…

• Your app needs to handle less common, or ultra-specific tasks (like calculations) in the background

• You require custom communication via Bluetooth (which can be tricky to implement using React Native)

• You want to create an app for Android only

In truth, if you want to build an iOS app and you know JavaScript, consider React Native – but if you want an Android-only app, it’s likely better to build natively with another team. Why? Right now, iOS has better support than Android.

If your app sounds like any of the above, it’s probably better you consider choosing native app development.

What companies should decide on Flutter app development?

Flutter can be used in many types of mobile projects. And especially it will be a good choice if:

  • you care about the quick release of your app
  • you want to verify your idea and quickly build a Minimum Viable Product (MPV)
  • you care about great look and feel of your app
  • you want to provide your app’s users with a similar experience on both Android and iOS
  • your company doesn’t depend on native API functions
  • your company doesn’t have its own backend
