Google Flutter, Developers’ Favorite Tool

1

Mobile users want nothing less than great performance, beautiful designs, and smooth animation. However, to achieve this goal, developers need to create new features without compromising on quality or performance.

This is the reason behind Flutter; flutter is Google’s mobile user interface (UI) framework that provides fast and excellent ways for developers to build native applications on both Androids and IOS. Mobile applications that are made with Flutter are built from a single codebase, compiled directly to native arm code, use GPU and can access platforms APIs and services.

Three ways Flutter can help you create a better app

  • Flutter is engineered for high-quality engineer velocity
  • Stateful hot reload allows you to change your code, and see it comes to life in a blink of an eye, without losing the application.
  • Flutter also ships with a rich set of customizable widget built from Google’s modern reactive framework. In addition, Flutter integrates with popular development tools; this means you can get started faster with IDE or editor of your choice.

Flutter moves the animation, widgets, rendering, and gestures into to framework to give you complete control over every pixel on the screen. With the help of Flutter, developers have the flexibility to create custom designs. The Flutter applications follow platform convention and interface details such as icons, scrolling, navigations, fonts and lots more.

No wonder mobiles apps built with Flutter are featured on both Google playstore and App store.  One of the best parts about Flutter is it is great for both new and experienced mobile app developers. Flutter gives you a fast, fun and modern way to deliver a native app as a new developer. If you are an experienced developer you can add Flutter to your existing workflows and tools to develop new expressive user interfaces. Flutter is free and open source and developers around the world use it including agencies, enterprise, and startups. To know more about the Google Flutter click here
