Why we Chose Flutter as One of Our Cross-platform Development Toolkits

“Please, I’ve already heard all the marketing stuff from other agencies. Could you tell me how exactly Flutter can ensure the stability and high performance of my app?” – said the client at the very beginning of our first meeting.

“Please, I’ve already heard all the marketing stuff from other agencies. Could you tell me how exactly Flutter can ensure the stability and high performance of my app?” – said the client at the very beginning of our first meeting.

That was a conversation from two years ago when Google’s Flutter was new in the mobile development world. Sometimes I heard the opinion that Flutter would be just one more “flash in the pan” solution in the cross-platform world. Fortunately, that didn’t happen. 

This article describes why we chose Flutter as one of the cross-platform development toolkits, and what components make it an optimal choice.

Single Codebase for Any OS

Based on my experience, the  cross-platform app development approach is commonly used in three cases:

  1. If it is required to develop an app within a short term. 
  2. If the app logic is frequently being changed. For example, when business requirements are dynamically adapting to the market.
  3. If native app development has any limitations.

As most cross-platform solutions, Flutter allows having a single codebase for all chosen operating systems, but it’s not the principal value. Since everything in Flutter is a widget, the code is a markup. 

We had a case when the client addressed us with the proof of concept solution for iOS and Android. Having no documentation, but a focus group, he aimed to test the app’s concept before building a full-fledged system. We chose Flutter as an optimal solution allowing him to change the app’s logic dynamically.

The cycle was as follows: we built a specific part of the functionality, then the client tested it with the focus group, and got back with the number of changes or next steps. Since the code was changed only in one place for all operational systems, we rapidly reacted to new requirements. Thus, the client got the PoC solution based on users’ needs within four weeks.

Flutter Stability

Flutter’s code is compiled into the ARM code for the CPU. With its own rendering engine, Flutter apps are not affected by any OS update or system customization. They will still look the same in terms of the interface even after an iOS or Android system update.

Version compatibility is another aspect of influencing stability. As a rapidly growing toolkit, Flutter does not change its API and development approaches. The code written two years ago might be reused in newly created apps.
