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
