Flutter is Google’s technology for developing applications for Android and iOS devices simultaneously. Written in Dart language, mobile apps look and behave almost 100% identical on both systems with performance similar to native apps. Flutter’s ecosystem is quite advanced, making the time required to create a mobile app shorter.
Flutter has 2 main components: the framework needed to make applications work and the required SDK to create and build them. Developing in Flutter approximates native programming over other competing options for writing a hybrid application for multiple platforms. Features such as hot-reloading (application reloading with state retention in a few hundred milliseconds), interface composition with aesthetic and well-designed components (widgets), and reactive programming style focus attract companies and developers who want to provide aesthetic and consistent solutions for the two leading mobile platforms.
Flutter also stands out from the competition in that some of the code can be written in Kotlin, Java, or Swift; developers are not limited to Flutter’s SDK ecosystem alone. You can take advantage of the possibilities offered by the iOS or Android platform.
