Flutter is an open-source mobile application development framework that is created by Google for building high-performance apps for iOS & Android in a single codebase. Flutter provides a fast and expressive way for developers to build native apps. In this blog, we have provided information on Flutter basics.

Here are Flutter basics and why use it for mobile app development?

  • HOT Reload: In flutter, you do not need to run the code every time you did some changes.  Flutter works like a web that allows the framework to automatically rebuild the widget tree. It helps to view the effect of your changes thus saving time and also helps in fast development.
  • High Performance: Flutter doesn’t require a JavaScript bridge and the speed is much faster than others.
  • Native apps for IOS and Android: Flutter has all the facilities that come under the native platforms, like scrolling, navigation, icons fonts, text, List view, etc. that's why apps built with Flutter features on both android and iOS.
  • Develop one code for two platforms: Flutter has its own widgets and designs. Widgets are the elements that control the view and interface of an app. Flutter is independent of platform covering both iOS and Android. So one app can be designed to work on both platforms.

A great piece that sheds much-needed light on Flutter App Development Company and its impact on the business as there are many new details you posted here. Sometimes it is not so easy to build a “Flutter App Development Company” without custom knowledge; here you need proper development skills and experience. However, the details you mention here would be very much helpful for the beginner.

A mobile-first approach is imperative for successful businesses, yet many still are behind in adopting a mobile app strategy. Where mobile web can help raise awareness and increase traffic, mobile apps, on the other hand, allow you to foster customer relationships and increase retention. Without a mobile presence, significant marketing opportunities are missed.

Flutter development is very useful to create native mobile applications and web applications in the single code base. Using the same code, the application can be deployed on the app store, play store and the same code can be used for PWA also. The most important advantage of Flutter is that a single developer can work on the code, and it will be supported for all the platforms.
