Advantages of developing a Flutter application

Flutter is a cross-platform application development technology by Google. Such an application does not differ from the native one, and users save resources on development without compromising the quality. Therefore, Flutter is the only cross-platform technology that we work with.

Advantages of developing a Flutter application:

Cross-platform

The mobile application will work on several platforms at once.

Fewer lines of code

There is no need to develop separate program codes for two platforms: iOS and Android.

Prompt changes

We can make changes to the code and immediately see them in the application.

User interface

The Flutter framework ensures that everything will look the same on the Android and iOS platforms. Flutter has customizable widgets. It supports 24 languages, has built-in currencies, dates, and units of measurement.

Performance improvement

Flutter applications are compiled into machine code that makes them very fast and high-performance. Using Flutter gives a more noticeable increase in performance compared to other cross-platform technologies.

Specific functions: payments, subscriptions, microtransactions

Flutter interacts with cell phone cameras, geolocation. The API allows you to process payments, subscriptions, microtransactions, and configure integrations.

Less development costs

Flutter reduces the cost of development since one code is developed for two platforms at once. Therefore, you can launch a mobile application even with a small budget.

Faster market entry

Flutter requires less time and resources. You can launch your application faster compared to developing native applications.

What stages does the development of mobile applications include?

  • Analytics: The stage involves the collection and analysis of analytical data: information about the target audience, demand, competitors, market analysis, etc.
  • Drawing up a technical specification: The technical specification describes application functions, interface and security requirements, method of implementing these requirements, as well as allocated budget.
  • Engineering and design: An application prototype is developed in the form of separate functional blocks, and then an individual design is created.
  • Development: Flutter, a language for creating cross-platform mobile applications, is used during development. It enables to develop an application for several operating systems at once.
  • Testing: After development, they start testing the application and its functions, and, if necessary, refine the application and fix bugs.
  • Launching in stores: When the application is ready, it is launched in stores: Apple App Store and Google Play Store. And applications can be downloaded.
  • Support: Technical support continues to be provided after the application launch in stores.

FLUTTER OR REACT NATIVE?

Both frameworks are used for the development of mobile applications. In general, React Native has a more extensive native library of UI elements than the Flutter widget library.

However, the advantage of the flatter in this case is that it is not as dependent on third-party element libraries as React Native. Some elements in them are incompatible with specific platforms. We can say that Flutter is more universal and widely applicable in this case.

In addition, Flutter also surpasses React Native in performance, using a completely different approach to rendering. Flutter creates its own widgets and uses the GPU for rendering, rather than borrowing native components from other platforms. The Flutter code written in the Dart language compiles into ARM code directly processed by the processor. Thanks to this, applications created on Flutter work noticeably faster. Whereas the React Native JavaScript bridge, which is used to interpret UI elements and calls the Java API or Objective-C to display iOS and Android components, respectively, can slow down the work of applications.

Technology selection criteria

When choosing a technology stack for developing a mobile application, companies most often pay attention to 4 criteria: cost, development speed, application performance, availability of peripherals, and operating system functions. Cross-platform solutions have always attracted low cost and short development time, but the final performance and implementation limitations allowed using such technologies only in limited cases. Here are some of the disadvantages of cross-platform technologies:

  • speed of operation on devices with poor hardware;
  • problems in implementing a single navigation style on iOS and Android;
  • each of the common functions: internal purchases, working with geolocation, working in the background, access to the periphery — these are third-party wrapper libraries containing additional errors, which leads to the risk of unexpected errors, etc.
    That is why cross-platform technologies were mainly used for prototyping or testing business models without the prospect of support despite the cheap development.

How much does it cost to develop an application?

Popularity of mobile applications

When a business makes a mobile application, it immediately establishes close contact with its customers. Getting on the customer's smartphone, the company gets into their pockets.

High demand

Realizing how important this is for successfully building long-term relationships with customers, brands strive to create their own mobile applications. The demand for services causes a shortage of specialists. There are no ready-made developers on the market, so studios are forced to grow their own personnel.

High salaries

Since there are few specialists on the market, they charge a lot for their work. Mobile app developers have the highest average salary among all developers. COBOL programmers make an exception, but the services of mobile developers are expensive.

Development for two platforms

iOS and Android are completely independent operating systems, so if you need to make an application for both, in fact, you will have to develop two products with identical functionality. The cost of development will proportionally double. Imagine that a website can open on one browser, but for it to work on the second, it would be necessary to develop a new one. It may seem wild and absurd, but this is the reality in mobile development.
