When Google releases something, it automatically grabs media attention whether it is related to their search empire or something that has nothing to do with it. Google Flutter was no exception. Launched with a core purpose of transforming mobile app development, Google Flutter is a user interface framework for creating mobile applications. Should you switch to Google Flutter just because it has a Google moniker on it? or you are better off sticking to your current mobile app development framework.
This article will convince you that Google Flutter is the future of mobile app development. Read on to find out more.
#1. App Development in Record Time
The official Flutter page says, “Build beautiful native apps in record time” and as an app developer, you immediately start setting high expectations. Thankfully, it does not disappoint. With shorter app development cycles, hot reload feature, customizable widgets, you can create a fully functional mobile application in no time. Moreover, app developers don’t have to worry about losing sight of the emulators, current state and hardware when they are using Flutter. In short, Google’s UI framework will supercharge your mobile app development.
#2. Easy to Master
One of the first thing most app developers consider before switching to a new mobile user interface framework and I don’t blame them. Leaving your current framework, which you have mastered after years of hard work and migrating to a completely new app development environment is not easy. App developers will have to start from scratch like a beginner. Thankfully, flutter has a small learning curve, which makes it easier for app developers to get the hang of Google’s mobile UI framework.
#3. Massive Library of Plug-ins
Mobile app developers clearly know the importance of plug-ins as it takes the hassle out of mobile app development process. Most app developers consider mobile app development frameworks that offer the wide variety of plugins. If you go by that criteria, then Google Flutters wins the race hands down. Google Flutter has a massive library of plugins, widgets, tools, and packages to make app development a breeze. Additionally, app developers can customize those widgets according to their needs. If that is not enough to convince you then the access to Apple’s Cupertino and Android’s Material framework will surely persuade you to check Flutter out. Google Flutter gives you more liberty to play around with plugins.
#4. Blazing Fast Performance
#5. Multi-Platform Support
Which mobile app development platform you want to develop your mobile app for? This is the question that will impact the platform you will choose to develop the application. With Google’s Flutter, you don’t have to worry about the platform because it is platform independent framework. This means that you can create mobile applications for any platform by using Flutter.
With a dedicated native feature built in, creating native apps won’t be a problem with Google Flutter. With hundreds of powerful widgets loaded with all the functionality such as navigation to scrolling, icons to fonts, you can easily create apps for multiple platforms without worrying about the differences.
If you factor in some of the perks of using Google Flutter, you can clearly see its dominance over older, more established mobile application development framework. Although it is too early to say whether Google Flutter can become the king of the mobile app development framework, it is safe to say that it is moving in that direction.
