Flutter comes with a rich set of numerous widgets. These widgets are fully customizable. It means that you have the complete freedom of customizing it according to your business demands and then you can easily create native interfaces within minutes. 

Flutter’s hot reload allows you to experiment, build UIs, add features, and fix bugs at a faster pace. With this amazing framework Flutter, you experience sub-second reload times for iOS as well as Android.   

Expressive and Flexible UI

Flutter provides you the opportunity to delight your users with its inbuilt beautiful material design and Cupertino (iOS- flavor) widgets, rich motion APIs, smooth natural scrolling, and platform awareness. 

Moreover, you can create beautiful apps faster with Flutter’s collection of visual, structural, platform, and interactive widgets. Additionally, browsing widgets by category, you can also see all the widgets in the widget index.

With Flutter, you get customizable widgets for accessibility, animation, and motion, assets, images & icons, Async, Cupertino, interaction models, painting effects, styling, etc. 

Native Performance

With Flutter, you get widgets that have inbuilt critical platform differences such as scrolling, navigation, icons, and fonts, and your Flutter code is compiled to native ARM machine code using Dart native compilers.    

Hence, Flutter offers you entire native performance on both the platforms – iOS and Android. 

The Same Codebase for Various Platforms 

Being a cross-stage structure, it has a dart-based codebase that would help you to create portable applications for both iOS and Android without any delay. 

So, with certain advancements, you get a solitary application that can be utilized effectively on numerous stages. However in case, you’re planning to create one application not the same as the other, it’s totally possible to do that also. 

Supports Mobile, Web as well as Desktop Application

This framework has the ability to make beautiful, natively compiled applications for mobile,          

web, and desktop from a single codebase. It uses the basics of HTML, javascript, and is written in a dart to compile for the client or the user. 

A Well Structured and Simple to Comprehend Documentation 

Documentation of Google’s Flutter is quite simple and easy to comprehend. Having good documentation for its users is really a distinctive feature of Flutter that makes it highly recognizable among its community and entrepreneurs.

  • It is quite cheaper to create a mobile application with Flutter because you do not need to create and maintain mobile apps for iOS and Android separately. 
  • You need only a single developer to create a minimum viable product.
  • It has a good performance. You cannot notice a native application and a flutter app
  • It is attractive. You have multiple widgets offered by Flutter. You can customize it in your way to create a valuable UI for your customers

Little Coding 

Flutter comes with a big relax for the developers as it asks them to write less code. It ultimately results in lesser bugs. Moreover, the entire code is shared between Android and iOS apps which make it quite simple to code easily and smoothly. 

Integration with Famous Development Tools

Android Studio, IntelliJ, Visual Studio, and Swift are some of the popular development tools with which Flutter has an inbuilt integration. So, dart developers can easily edit codes in their favorite tools.                             

Simple to Install and Setup   

Flutter has the ability to operate on low-end machines smoothly. Hence, with Flutter, you can easily create a mobile app on a normal machine having 2GB RAM and a dual-core processor. However, it is impossible to run the Android Studio on this machine.

It’s an open-source mobile UI framework. You can create a native mobile application for different platforms such as iOS and Android with only one codebase. Moreover, it consists of two important parts:

  • A Software Development Kit: It is basically a set of tools that help in creating native applications. It includes various tools to compile your code into native machine code (code for iOS and Android)
  • A framework (UI library based on widgets): A collection of reusable UI elements (buttons, text inputs, sliders, etc.)
