Google has created a simple way to develop mobile applications, it has packaged the most common interface solutions such as navigation, buttons, animations, typography, icons, etc. in widgets that can be reused for very fast prototyping. That is the concept behind Flutter.
To get technical, Flutter is an SDK (Software Development Kit) for multi-platform mobile application development, that is, with the same source code you can create apps for Android and iOS. And these applications are 100% native, not hybrid, not pseudo-native, but apps that are compiled directly for the device's processor. To develop with Flutter, you must use the Dart programming language.
Widgets are prebuilt interface solutions, so you can quickly create interfaces using widgets instead of writing them from scratch. In addition, Flutter has a feature called Hot Reload that allows you to see changes "hot" without having to wait to recompile. So instead of waiting up to two minutes for change, we can see them instantly.
Flutter widgets allow you to build interfaces very quickly, and they are highly customizable and include exclusive widgets for Material Design (Android) and Cupertino Style (iOS).
Widgets add customizations for iOS and Android such as navigation, scrolling, icons, fonts etc. So you don't have to worry about the peculiarities of each system, Flutter does it for you. It also compiles to the native code of the processor offering the best experience to the users.
Flutter is Google's mobile app SDK for creating high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is free and open source.
First of all, we are going to start by looking at the advantages of Flutter and why it can be an interesting option.
This is the great advantage of hybrid applications. We only need to develop a single project, a single code base, to have the application ready for both Android and iOS.
The great advantage of this point is that it allows us to keep a single team or person, depending on the size of the project, in charge of both applications. At the same time, this translates into lower development time and cost.
One of the big downsides of mobile development is the time that developers lose every time they make changes. Every time code is changed to fix a bug or introduce new functionality, developers typically have to wait a few minutes.
Although this may seem little, if we make any changes during the day, this ends up being lost hours waiting for the project to recreate itself.
Flutter has a feature called Hot Reload that allows you to speed up this entire process. Convert this wait of a few minutes into as little as 3-4 seconds. The result is more productive scheduling with fewer waits.
Perhaps it is one of the great advantages of Flutter over many other hybrid technologies.
Flutter is not simply a hybrid to native code translator. Flutter generates its own code that the mobile device understands. This point is what allows applications made with Flutter to have a quality on par with native applications. It is almost impossible to differentiate a native application from an application made with Flutter since the fluidity of both is the same.
If it is true that to access certain features of the mobile such as the camera, GPS or other sensors and components of the Flutter system uses a series of "translators" called plugins, but the speed of execution and the result is very similar to that of a native app.
Another interesting point about Flutter is that its default interface is attractive and beautiful for the user.
All the components of Flutter are based on the so-called Material Design. A design language created by Google that adapts very well to current times.
Flutter is easier to customize than the native technologies themselves. It is much easier to translate a completely custom design into a real application. Furthermore, Flutter is an open-source framework, which means that it is easily accessible and modifiable by anyone to adapt it to their needs.
Hyperlink InfoSystem has been building beautiful apps on the Flutter platform since the framework's launch in 2017. We develop user-centric Flutter apps that match your organization's growth requirements and drive ROI.
As an app agency, we have developed a variety of apps to cater to well-established startups, businesses and brands. We create high-grade Flutter apps that users love to interact with and help businesses improve sales and revenue. We are continually expanding our horizons and operating from different locations.
Through a rigorous analysis of the needs of your company, we develop tools in your mobile application in order to save time and money in all processes.
If you have a successful app, periodic maintenance is necessary to debug that data saturation that takes away the performance of mobile devices.
After the development and production of your app, new needs may arise that is accompanied by the growth of your company. We are always available to implement the necessary updates.
We have a team of experts in Native and Hybrid development, using languages such as Swift, Kotlin, PhoneGap, Ionic, Xamarin, and so on to give the best performance of mobile applications in their different variants such as iOS and Android.
We carry out a usability study for the design and development of your mobile application in such a way that the user experience is much more practical and intuitive. UX (User Experience) + UI (User Interface) Design.
