What is Flutter?
It is Google’s mobile app SDK, having frameworks, widgets, and tools, that furnishes mobile app developers with a simple way to develop and deploy visually attractive and robust mobile applications for Android and iOS platforms. Flutter facilitates a stable and secure cross-platform mobile app development and most importantly, it cuts down substantial app development costs.
What makes Flutter the right choice among app developers and app owners
One code for two platforms
The work of the application developers gets reduced as they have to write one codebase for both the apps- Android and iOS platforms. Since Flutter has its widgets and designs, it doesn’t depend on the platform, which means you have the same app on both platforms.
The same app is on both the platforms, which means you require testing once which in turn makes the quality assurance process faster. Developers have to check the app just once and write automatic tests only once as it has one codebase. Less testing will fasten the development process, which is a positive aspect for app owners and developers.
UI which your users will admire
Flutter is designed in such a way that it focuses on native end-user experiences. The layered architecture enables complete customization, which results in incredibly quick rendering and robust and compliant designs.
Apps made on Flutter perform smoothly and in a quick way, without hanging while scrolling. From the technical point of view, the development process gets minimized as one codebase is used for both the platforms.
