Technology is changing very fast if we talk about in context of smart & hybrid mobile application development and we well aware about this fact that outdated apps are constantly updated with more advanced ones. So apparently, all tech companies are doing their best efforts to follow the latest IT technologies and solutions serve perfectly to their customer’s market requirements and needs.
Today we are going to introduce you all about Flutter, Google’s mobile app SDK, how it works, how to use it and what are the benefits of using it. Flutter apps are becoming more popular these days as it provides best cross platform development solutions to developers.
What Is Google Flutter?
Google flutter is an open source mobile application SDK multi platform technology to develop android & iOS mobile apps with same application source code. It does not use native widgets and web views as like other cross platform technologies i.e. React Native & Xamarin, which gives it unique identity in the race of other competitive frameworks. Cross platform development solves the many issues of developers by focusing on several mobile platforms at once in which they use third party programming languages that can be easily complied into each native mobile application and ultimately boosts the development process. Developing flutter cross platform mobile applications reduces the developing man power costs. Flutter is purposely built advanced technology, aimed at to achieve the top notch mobile app services and now we will be discussing the usage of flutter’s advantages.
Key Benefits of Using Flutter
- One Code Source For Android & iOS:
Developers just write one source code of apps for two different platforms i.e. android & iOS because it is platform independent which gives the features of its own widgets & designs. And you have the same app on two different platforms.
- Fast Development Time:
Flutter gives fast & more dynamic mobile app development environment to developers that mean they can do manipulation in their source code and see them straight away in the application, which is its most hottest feature, called Hot Relaod which takes only few seconds and help all team mates to add innovative features & fixs the bugs faster & complete their experiments easily fast.
- Stunning User Interface:
Flutter is basically introduced by google for developers to design their own customized widgets or alter existing widgets of apps. The new app will look stunning & same user interface throughout the all mobile devices even on older versions of android and iOS. Older versions don’t charge anything for support purposes.
- Prospective Bright Future:
Flutter has a bright and promising future of app development as experts say Google is planning soon to swap the native android application development.
- Technical Architecture:
Although Flutter and Android are being developed at Google, the technical architecture of both platforms is completely different. Flutter uses Dart as the programming language, while native Android development uses Java or Kotlin. Flutter uses the Dart framework and often does not require the bridge to communicate with the native modules.
- Code-interdependent User Interface:
The programming language in which you make the application also plays its role in creating the interface. As you remember, when you build Flutter apps, user interface is associated with the code and is part of it. So, it is possible to change the app interface with simplicity and elegance, focusing on the situation and the state of the program, the flow of data, etc.
Finally, it has been proved that developing applications in flutter is much faster than native and hence google is actively promoting flutter technology as it can able to push back other multi platform development tools.
