How developing in Flutter cuts costs
Why Flutter makes testing easier and UI more beautiful
In which cases you should not go with Flutter
Why should I choose cross-platform development?
Cross-platform app development allows you to create apps for iOS and Android simultaneously, which, in result, saves you time, money, and resources. It’s also easier to maintain; once you find a bug, you can solve it for both platforms simultaneously. However, there are of course some drawbacks. Cross-platform frameworks give less freedom to your developers to customize certain elements. In such cases you might want to go with native mobile app development. As you can see it all depends on the project.
What are other popular cross-platform app development frameworks?
React Native—created by Facebook. It allows developers to create a mobile app that works on iOS and Android, while still getting great speed, efficiency, and overall look and feel of the app. Xamarin—created by Microsoft, it’s a .NET developer platform made up of tools, programming languages, and libraries for building Android, iOS and Windows apps. Ionic—an SDK for hybrid mobile app development based on HTML5 programming language. It focuses mainly on the look and feel, and UI interaction of the mobile app. Together with Xamarin, they are way less known to developers than React Native and Flutter.
What is better: React Native or Flutter?
It’s a difficult question to answer in just a few words. Generally, go with React Native if you already have a strong web team, your mobile app is porting a web app, is a content browser, and doesn’t process a lot of data.
You already have a mobile team, your app doesn’t depend too heavily on one platform’s features (e.g. AR/VR), you need a beautiful UI, and you care about performance but don’t want to spend too much money on development? Go with Flutter.
