Overall Satisfaction with Flutter, by Google

We use Flutter for cross-platform building and for building POCs within. It has a little bit of a learning curve, but a very useful tool to have, once you learn it.
- The performance is very good.
- Community support is okay. - New language, and new platform. So, a bit of a learning curve.
- Good for POCs but tough to take it beyond and maintain it for years to come.
- The talent pool is not very wide, so it's tough to get developers.
  • Cross platform building, across iOS and Android.
  • Opinionated, so it's good.
  • Threading and handling of basic use cases is easy and straight forward.
  • New language learning, and a new platform. So, a bit of a learning curve and tough to enter.
  • More resources and docs for even the extreme cases would help take this platform even further
  • Multi platform support, iOS and Android.
  • Resources and online support.
  • Simple opinionated ways to build basic use cases.
  • Helped us test out our assumptions quickly.
  • Helped us build POCs and simple apps quickly.
- Like it better than other solutions, or building native on both platforms.
- React Native has a good advantage with language and amazing web support.
- React Native is easier to jump in for web engineers.
- For basic use cases, and simple apps, flutter is fantastic. Easy to build and more importantly fun!
