Progressive Web App vs. Flutter
• Description – The apps in Flutter have been written using the Dart language and use many advanced features of the language as well. In the case of PWA, the website comes with app-like features as well as an interface.
• Installation – The app, in the case of Flutter, is installed on a device directly. The installation entails flutter SDK, system requirements, platform setup, Xcode installation, and android or iOS setup. However, when it comes to PWA, the application is not set up on a device. Instead, users must visit the site and include it on the home screen for launching an application.
• Alibaba, Google Ads, Birch Finance, and Reflectly make use of apps created with Flutter. On the contrary, Twitter, Uber, Telegram, Android Messages, and Tinder are those companies that use the apps built with PWA.
• Update delivery – The update, when it comes to Flutter, is delivered promptly to the users when the present version is compared to the fresh version stored on Firebase. In the case of PWA, automatic update for the users without any approval from an App Store.
Which one to choose: PWA versus Flutter

One can consider them to be substituted for one another to some extent. Both of them are becoming quite popular right now, and it is quite difficult to predict whether one of them will displace the other.

Flutter is an open-source UI toolkit for mobile developers, so they can use it to build native-looking** Android and iOS** applications from the same code base for both platforms. Flutter is also working to make Flutter apps for Web, PWA (progressive Web-App) and Desktop platform (Windows,macOS,Linux).
Flutter was officially released in December 2018. Since then, it has gone a much stronger flutter community.
There has been much increase in flutter developers, flutter packages, youtube tutorials, blogs, flutter examples apps, official and private events, and more. Flutter is now on top software repos based and trending on GitHub.
What is Flutter? this question comes to many new developer’s mind.
Flutter means flying wings quickly, and lightly but obviously, this doesn’t apply in our SDK.
So Flutter was one of the companies that were acquired by **Google **for around $40 million. That company was based on providing gesture detection and recognition from a standard webcam. But later when the Flutter was going to release in alpha version for developer it’s name was Sky, but since Google already owned Flutter name, so they rename it to Flutter.
Flutter is used in many startup companies nowadays, and even some MNCs are also adopting Flutter as a mobile development framework. Many top famous companies are using their apps in Flutter. Some of them here are
and many more other apps. Mobile development companies also adopted Flutter as a service for their clients. Even I was one of them who developed flutter apps as a freelancer and later as an IT company for mobile apps.
