As most businesses require some kind of mobile app these days, app development is an important role to play. By using Flutter, by Google, one can develop native apps quickly and easily. If you are having experienced team to develop both Android and iOS apps differently, then Flutter, by Google might not be useful for you, however, in all other cases, Flutter might help you directly or indirectly.

You might not find Flutter suitable for your job, if you are building a single platform solution, like only an android app or iOS app. On the other hand, if you are building multiple apps for different platforms, then you should consider Flutter as one of your top choices, it would be saving you time & money.

Flutter is well known for native app development, if you have android studio installed on your system, you can quickly start using it. This might not be the best choice for you if you do not wish to learn a new language, i.e. Dart and you do not know it already.

If you do not hesitate to learn a new programming language, like Dart, then you can surely give it a try. Flutter is one of the best solutions to build cross-platform native apps. It works well in the case of Android Mobile apps along with iOS-based mobile apps.

If someone is finding a native solution for the development of their app, flutter might be a good choice. Dart language is also similar to JS, however we can't say that it is copy of JS, so one has to learn Dart to build their first project. If someone wants to save their time by not building two different apps for android and ios, then flutter might be a good choice.

From experience I would recommend to use the Flutter SDK when you want to transform your designs into actual mobile applications. Especially in cases in which you have to deal with different platforms (iOS, Windows, Android) and devices (phone, tablet, desktop) I can recommend Flutter. It saves so much time to only develop once.

If you, however, want to build quick prototypes I would not recommend it. You really have to consider that this is a development framework already. Thus, keep in mind which stage of your development you are in. If you want to prototype there might be faster and quicker alternatives. This obviously depends on your proficiency with the tool but I think in most cases you should only switch to actual development and Flutter if you have your designs and requirements ready.

We are using Flutter to create mobile applications. Flutter saves lots of time of development by which we can develop android and ios applications with the same codebase. Also, the user interface of the application created by flutter is well designed with compare to a normal app. For some of the web apps, we are using Flutter.

Flutter is totally the best application development toolkit for developing iOS and Android-based apps. It supports cross-platform development and is convenient for any developer irrespective of his or her experience in application development. You can use a single code base to develop both the applications, which is crucial for new-age media companies who want to sustain their omnichannel presence in both the stores with likewise UI and UX. It's a much better choice than Kotlin if you're considering it for your application development needs.

- Well suited for POCs.
- Well suited for most applications, where you fetch data over the network and display it on the UI.
- Best if you want your iOS and Android to be in sync with design and spec.
- Tough to get talent and maintain it further, and take the product to extreme use cases and latest styles.

Flutter is well suited when you have to work on a small/basic application that is not too complex. Although Flutter can handle complex logic, it is preferred to use Flutter for simple and small projects. Flutter is also suitable when you want to save time but create your application for multiple platforms (like Android, iOS, macOS, or web applications).

You never know if your great app idea will live on and become popular in the App Store, really ask yourself if the one-minute performance boost you get from Is the initial build worth the slow development and updates, as well as the increased cost of hiring or finding app developers? With Flutter, development speed is essentially halved because you can build both iOS and Android builds with a single codebase and it gets your ideas out there faster. If your app fails and performance becomes an issue, great, build the super optimized native app you intend to build from the ground up.

Flutter has been used at our company because it is an open source project, which gives us greater input from more sources. We use it to build applications almost like a combination of Ikea and Lego's. We are given templates like Ikea furniture but are able to customize it like with Lego's. Sometimes integration is not the best.

Flutter is allowing to build apps in an effective and efficient manner with increased velocity speed (in terms of Sprint in Scrum). It is a cross-platform SDK with numerous UI widgets and building tools to be used and implemented. Moreover, it allows the development of apps with complex and intuitive UI without losing in performance.

Flutter is great to build things quickly. It's good for displaying information, changing settings, and social media apps. It performs well in most cases, but lacks in the following:
  • Gaming (particularly with 3d rendering. Use a game engine!)
  • Apps with lots of custom components.
  • Web-first development. If you need an application, flutter is great. If you need a website, use React, Next, Angular, or something else. :)

You can use it everywhere, on the web, in mobile applications for both Android and iOS cellphones, and recently the Google team presented the latest version where they showed that it is also suitable for developing Windows desktop applications; so for me, it is a go for almost any new project that should be done quickly. The Dart language is not too far away from any strongly typed language so it shouldn´t be a drawback. If you are already familiar with java, C# or any other strongly-typed language, you will be writing Dart code in no time!

If you want to make a fast, performant, and high-quality (but not perfect) iOS and Android app while drastically cutting down on development and testing time, Flutter is for you. Flutter is perfect for 95% of cross-platform mobile app use-cases - the 5% of use-cases where Flutter will not work are:

1. When you are looking to achieve a perfect native in-app experience (Flutter feels incredibly close to apps built with native iOS or Android tools, but there are a few areas you can notice the differences).
2. If you require a vast amount of native code to be written (in which case, you can still use Flutter for the UI, but its time-saving benefits drops considerably).
3. If you are only building a single-platform (iOS or Android) app.

* Flutter is a cross-platform developing tool, and it's used for Web, Android, and iOS app development.
* Flutter allows us to deliver projects to clients quickly and saves money in development to code once and produce various apps for platforms and in maintenance.
* If you want to keep your app size small then it is not recommended but it's not a big issue nowadays.

Flutter makes it very easy to build frontend apps for all major platforms, from a single code base, with very few, if any, drawbacks. This is a game-changer, especially if you're a small team or a sole developer without the resources to manage multiple implementations. If you're starting work on a new app and need to target multiple platforms, I believe you won't currently find another solution that will get you up and running as quickly as Flutter does.

If you need to integrate a graphical framework with an existing C/C++/Java/Python project, then Flutter is likely not the solution for you because of its strong ties to Dart. For example, it may make more sense to use something like Qt for your C++ and Python apps. However, if you ever get the chance to re-write it, Flutter will seem like bliss in comparison.
