Flutter is the open source mobile app SDK by Google which is used to build native mobile apps for iOS and Android with a single codebase. It also the primary method of creating an application for Google Fuchsia. It was released on December 4th, 2018, Flutter 1.0 at the Flutter Live event, denoting the first “stable” version of the Framework.
Google Flutter is not based on JAVA or Kotlin. You need to learn Dart Programming Language to develop a mobile application. You can also use Dart language for web programming.
Why should you choose Flutter?
A few months ago I was on a point that I have to choose the best framework with which I can build a great app for both Android and iOS with a single codebase. Primarily I had the plan to make a fully robust mobile app with beautiful UI. I tried other native frameworks, but now I’m developing mobiles app with flutter. Here are some reasons that make me choose flutter.
Cross-Platform: By using the same framework, libraries, and renderer, you can make a fully functioning mobile application with a beautiful user interface for both iOS and Android. It provides widget design according to Cupertino for iOS and Material design guidelines for Android devices. You can also find lots of other platforms specific services and APIs.
Performance: Flutter provides 60 frames per second (fps) performance or 120 fps performance on devices capable of 120Hz updates due to which your app UI animations will be fast as well smooth.
Hot Reload: One of best feature that I like about flutter is that you can reload your App with new changes on emulator during developing by hot reload feature due to which you don’t have to wait for long to build your App for every single time for testing. It will increase the rate of development.
Flutter is new on the market, but the community is growing rapidly, you can start developing Android and iOS App with flutter from today without any worrying for enough features and widgets. Once try building an app with it, you will find how powerful and beautiful Flutter is. I wish you for happy coding with Flutter.
