In the past couple of years, mobile application development has transformed into a blasting industry. Nearly 3.5 billion people in the world are using smartphones and applications to carry out everyday tasks. Today, for online business mobile app development is necessary. If you want to increase your sales with technology then app development is genuinely suggested for everyone.

A decade ago, you could build a native application. The main drawback of this was- you had to spend twice the development cost to make applications for iOS and Android platforms. But now, with the availability of broad cross-platform development options, developing two applications using a single codebase become more popular. There are some competing mobile app cross-platform tools available. Other than PWA and Hybrid, Google’s Flutter and Facebook’s React Native are among the most notable ones. The two main advantages of cross-platform application development is a rapid development process and reduced cost. As there are a lot of frameworks available to build cross platform apps, most of the entrepreneurs get confused about choosing the best between Flutter and PWA. Before making the comparison, let us understand the basics of both frameworks.

What Is Flutter?
Flutter is an open-source mobile app development framework to develop high-performance, high fidelity mobile apps for both android and ios platforms. Flutter apps are written in Dart language which can be compiled to JavaScript. The major components of Flutter are Dart platform, Flutter engine, Foundation library, and Design-specific widgets. Using Flutter framework, you can easily build user interfaces that smoothly react in your application as it reduces the code required to synchronize and update you application’s view. Within a short time, Flutter has become very popular on GitHub and has gathered plenty of stars.

Features Of Flutter-
It includes modern react-style framework, instant gadgets, and development tools.
It has huge support for developing customized interfaces with unique themes and priorities as per your needs.
Flutter has a new feature called “Hot Reload”. With this tool, you can access a wide range of widgets along with working on a dynamic interface with ease.
It has a high effective portable GPU delivering UI power that allows it to work on the most recent interfaces.
Pros of Flutter-
Easily learnable
It gives access to native features.
It is hot reload which means that the developers can see all the changes they’ve made to the code.
Perfect for an MVP.
It improves overall performance as well as app startup time.
Cons of Flutter-
Few issues in integrating with native external libraries.
It isn’t supported by web browsers as it only mobile applications.
Lack of third-party libraries. Using Flutter, the developer has to build these libraries themselves which is very time-consuming.
