What is Flutter app development?

Flutter is an open source single codebase technology for developing mobile, desktop and web apps for usability on multiple platforms. It’s developed by Google and by far a complete SDK solution despite the fact that the technology is relatively new in comparison to the already existing ones like React Native.

Clients often ask what’s the budget friendly way of developing an app (either mobile or desktop)? Well, depending upon the project requirements, answers may vary. Flutter app development is trending and hot, that’s a constant not variable.

So, why not develop Android and iOS apps at the same time with none other than Flutter app development tool?

Many say, Flutter is ideal for cross-platform app development because it’s not a library or a framework, rather a software development kit (SDK).

We often see that Flutter is compared with related technologies like React Native, Xamarin, and Kotlin. Sure, you develop an app by looking into the tech stack however, getting to know what’s trending is vital. You can read about mobile app development trends here.

Flutter vs React Native: which one should I choose?

Just like Flutter, React Native is the next choice for building cross-platform apps. React Native is based on the popular Javascript language and developers are quite familiar with it. The Hot reload function makes the development faster.

When we look into stats, Statista uncovers that 42% developers chose React Native for development whereas 39% preferred working on Flutter.

39% is still a staggering number keeping in mind that Flutter is new and still growing.

Stackflow survey 2020, 68.8% developers used Flutter whereas 57.9% used React Native for programming.

While some figures may appear not ‘so true’ to you. In such a case, contact an experienced Flutter mobile app developer in choosing the right technology stack.

Can I convert my existing app into Flutter?

Yes, there is a possibility. However, we recommend having a Flutter app code rather than converting the old one.

Step 1 – Install Flutter as a library or a module. The given module must be responsible for handling the user interface.

Step 2 – Create another module, using the same one.

Step 3 – This exercise will start a new project with a different structure. Divide the main code with the Flutter code.

Step 4 – The created module is like a 3rd party dependency for making changes.

Confused? Or afraid that you may mess up with the old code? We can help.  

Final verdict

If you are following the hiring trends, then we advise going for outsourcing a dedicated flutter app development team. Don’t go blindly into outsourcing dedicated teams, if you have a long term project, get a team from offshore or nearshore. Else, for short term projects you can always opt for a time and material outsourcing model.

Your choices, your decisions, requirements, timeline, app type/category, and business goals must be aligned. Companies like Phaedra can help you through the hiring process, share an idea and find the best talent pool.
