Overall Satisfaction with Flutter, by Google

We are utilizing Flutter for the development of a cross-platform app dedicated to scheduling the student courses, timetables, mobile file reader, and simple communication server-client interaction. Also, it is used for the implementation of some specific platform-based application development such as electromagnetic pulse detector for iOS, Android OS and MacOS platforms.
  • Cross-platform support and development
  • Native Features Access (for instance, reuse of Kotlin and Swift in development)
  • Instant changes in the app
  • Smooth performance, especially for UX
  • Minimizing the code size (in MBytes), compared to Kotlin and Swift
  • Future support of web apps
  • High entry level - learning Dart language (not very popular one)
  • Cross-platform support and development
  • Fast deployment of changes made in the app
  • Great UI widgets and built-in tools
  • It has increased the velocity (in terms of Sprint in Scrum)
  • It has decreased the SDLC time
  • The fast deployment of MVP app allowed to attract seed venture investments in less time than expected
Flutter is a bit different from Android Studio, the latter one being an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) while Flutter itself is a Cross-Platform Mobile Development SDK (Software Development Kit). Flutter provides the access to the native features and built-in plugins and other SDKs as it allows you to use and reuse previously developed codebase on JavaScript, Swift, and Kotlin.

Yes

Did implementation of Flutter by Google go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Flutter by Google again?

Yes

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.
