Flutter is a mobile app SDK (Software Development Kit) and a framework created by Google. It is used to easily develop cross-platform apps. Flutter took the cross-platform app development to the whole new level. It allows developers to create apps with no sacrifice. The framework enables development teams to craft high-performance, secure apps with consistent design, providing native experience.
Above all, Flutter allows developers to share the code between iOS and Android, in most cases by 100%. No other cross-platform framework provides that. Developers write one code and then easily share it between iOS and Android. That’s one reason why development with Flutter is faster.
What is more, the SDK offers features like Hot Reload that facilitates the development, because it allows developers to see changes in the code quickly. It means immediate bug fixing and testing various solutions. One code instead of two also equals less testing. Moreover, Flutter development teams don’t need to adjust the apps to older versions of iOS and Android – they look and act perfectly on them. No need to test the app on older devices contributes to cutting the testing time even more. All these things result in reduced app development cost. As a consequence, Flutter app development is a massive opportunity for startups with limited budgets.
