With Flutter gaining popularity in the market, most businesses that contact us to build cross-platform apps have one question in common:
‘Is Flutter a good platform for app development?’
If you have the same question, we have come up with a list of situations in which you should consider Flutter app development.
When is Flutter beneficial to your business?
- When you need to get your apps up and running quickly.
Two categories of organisations have a pressing need to launch apps more quickly: Startups & Enterprises. For startups, because time is of the Essence for them and for Enterprises because they want to stay ahead of competitors and publish those apps at the earliest.
We propose establishing Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) for any time-sensitive businesses, which may be produced with restricted but important functionality in a shorter time frame. It is for this reason that cross-platform programmes are required.
- When you need to give unique native app performance and user experiences
This one is fairly simple. The Flutter development framework outperforms its competitors in terms of speed. In most cases, a Flutter app developer will spend half the time as compared to the same app developed separately for Android and iOS. Despite the fact that cross-platform app development frameworks claim to give native app experiences, we all know that this isn't the case. Flutter, on the other hand, overcomes all of the problems that cross-platform frameworks have had in the past.
Flutter produces views that make the apps seem nice as well as consistent across all platforms when it comes to exploiting native capabilities such as scrolling, navigation, fonts, and more.
Futter takes into account platform variations and allows developers to create stunning native apps with unique widgets.
- When you want to save money by not having to design two native apps
When businesses used to invest in native app development, the apps had fantastic UX, but the expenses were extremely high, making it impossible to maximise ROI. This is why companies have moved their focus to cross-platform software development. However, the app's user experience and performance were nowhere near those of native apps.
That’s where Flutter comes in.
Each Flutter feature, such as a single codebase, Hot Reload, Material Design, and others, minimises the time it takes to construct two mobile apps. Developers may easily make modifications to the build, such as bug fixes, feature upgrades, and so on, and see the changes in real-time on the emulators. As a result, the overall time to design a mobile app is lowered.
Flutter allows you to build two mobile apps for the price of one. What more can we ask!
So when should Flutter be used?
When you need an awesome, well-performing, and truly scalable native cross-platform app in a short period of time, Flutter is the way to go. However, it is entirely dependent on the Flutter app development company you pick. Here, it's all about talent, experience, and expertise.
