Mobile applications are no longer just the apps for the Smartphones! With the evolution of Internet of Technology (IoT), the same applications can now run on smart watch, smart TV, wrist bands and many other such platforms. Because of this recent revolution, mobile applications have become the cornerstone of the whole cognitive ecosystem. But as it is said that every coin has two sides, on one end where the reach of the mobile applications and its access is increasing, there is also an arising need that the applications cater smooth navigation amongst all the platforms and devices and have seamless front-end User Interface for satisfactory User Experience.
Also, with the ever evolving tech domain, it is essential for an organisation to keep the innovative drive on and get the true advantage of faster go-to market initiatives. For that to happen, it is essential that the development of the mobile apps is fast, effective and continuous. Also, it is essential to choose a mobile app development framework that evolves with the dynamic market demands so that the organisation can explore the true scale of the mobile application and can minimise the risk of obsolete technologies.
Because of such a paradigm shift in the nature and purpose of the mobile app development, there arose a need of a framework that is fast, effective and which evolved with the growing market demands. And as it is said that necessity is the mother of invention, there are front-end development framework that has been making rounds amongst the developers because of its single codebase for all phenomenon. We are talking about Google’s recent prodigy project, Flutter. It helps people to build ‘Beautiful Native Apps in Record Time’. And with their latest announcement in Google I/O 2019, they have already released Flutter 1.5 for early adopters and now Flutter’s portable UI kit not only works for mobile applications, but also for the web, desktops and embedded screens.
Imagine reaching all the target audience on all the possible screens with interactive and attractive UI in matter of days and not months. Also save huge costs with development, deployment and change management. This fact itself proves that Flutter is here to stay, sustain and evolve as a platform with growing market demands. Even if we do not take this point in consideration, Flutter app development is the best framework for mobile applications alone as well!
To back our words, we are stating below 5 Features of Flutter app development (It being TOTALLY OPEN SOURCE is not even one of the reasons!):
Features to Vouch for Dominance of Flutter App Development:
- Integration, Flexibility and Scalability Capabilities
Because of it’s easy to access and easy to integrate framework, Google’s Flutter provides enhanced flexibility, integration and scalability capabilities. Whether you are reengineering a legacy application to match the current and future market needs or you need to build a quick wireframe to present to the investors, Flutter can be integrated for both the purposes.
- Hot Reload
Conventionally, mobile developers had to wait a few minutes for a change to the code to reflect on their screen. But, with Flutter app development, there is a feature called Hot Reload which allows developers to render change in sub-seconds. In the long haul, it saves time, money and efforts – everything.
While applying change, the Dart Virtual Machine also makes a widget tree thus only the code that has the relevance with the change will be affected while the current state of the application will be preserved in the virtual server. So, developers can view the effect of the change without the fear of the change affecting any of the emulators, simulators, and hardware.
- One Stop Solution
Instead of creating havoc by using different platforms and frameworks for different purposes, Flutter app development provides one stop solution to develop, deploy and manage change. It means that you can build effective UIs, deploy them in the system and if there are any bugs or changes, they can be observed as well as fixed easily from Flutter.
Apart from that, Flutter app development framework also allows the developers to loop in all the non-technical personnel and let them contribute and supervise the development.

- Native Performance and Internationalised Flutter Libraries
When you opt for Flutter app development, you get access to widgets that are based on the platform differences of Android, iOS and Google Fuchsia. Thus, when you use Flutter app development as a framework for UI development, you can get to use widgets that can integrate all the platform based functionalities of the application such as scrolling, navigation, icons and fonts.
And for those who are looking for enterprise applications to be built for their internal organisation’s ecosystem or an application build specially for a specific geographic region, Flutter app development provides effective native experience based on the platform i.e. android or iOS and it also aids in developing standardised and effective UIs based on the geographic locations.
When you build an application for a specific geographic location, Flutter allows you to build and modify the UIs of the application based on the preferred Language, Text as well as the Layout of the targeted location.
- Huge Widget Library
When a developer works on Flutter app development framework, the reason why they can build applications faster is because of its impeccable ready to use widget collection. Along with a huge collection of widgets, it also has animations that can be selected to make your application interactive and effective. You can select widgets based on the platform, nature of the applications as well as the geographical locations where the application will be deployed.
Also, the widgets entered in the Flutter’s Library are not some random additions, they are standardised based on the preferences of the users and thus it not only gives you the pace in mobile app development, but it also helps in making your application, more acceptable for your target audience.
Also, if you are planning a MVP where you only develop a native application to penetrate the market and then expand to the web platform once you have a stable financial and use base, Flutter is the best choice for you. Because of the single codebase and cross platform functionality of Flutter, you can easily use the same code to expand your products any time in the future. This can not only save your time and money; it can also help you ensure that the user experience is seamless across all the platforms.
Because of such amazing features of Flutter, even the Tech Giants like Google, Alibaba, Hamilton, Tencent and many other such elite organisations have built their mesmerising UI using the Flutter’s UI toolkit. So, the question that truly remains here is, are you ready to add your name to this list?
