Flutter is an open source movable UI toolkit by which we can design and develop Application for the cross platforms (Android + iOS) , web and desktop software as well from a single codebase. Flutter was introduced by Google in December 2018  as a polished platform to generate applications , web apps and software.

Flutter Numbers:

From the date of its launching Flutter is getting popular among the developers below are some of the latest figures on flutter –
  1. As per the statista reports following is the trend for flutter-

Reason for getting popular and adopted by the brands to develop their application –

Redistributed and Modified:
Since Flutter is an open source toolkit, Any developer can post their issues, contribute to the Flutter community and can access the document from open developer forums as well.

User Interface (UI):
Flutter executes two sets of widgets which comply with specific design language –
  1. Material design widgets which executes Google’s design language
  2. Cupertino widgets which executes Apple’s iOS design
In short Flutter application will behave same and natural on both the android and iOS platforms, resembling their native components.

HOT RELOAD:
It is the feature which enables developers to reload the application and confirm the changes in the UI while development in flutter.

One only code base:
On March 2021 as Flutter 2 announced developer can implement the same code base to craft applications on five operating systems-
  1. iOS
  2. Android
  3. Windows
  4. MacOS
  5. Linux
Flutter provided production-quality support for web in its Flutter 2 Announcement by which we can develop the progressive web apps as well by using Flutter.

Time to market:
It will take lesser time as compare to Native applications.

Compatible with older device:
Flutter ensures rendering and functionality of application n Android V 5.1.1 and iOS V 8 and higher from that.

Low Maintenance cost:
When it comes to maintenance cost, Flutter is far cheaper then native android and native iOS platforms because there is lesser workforce required to maintain a single platform as compare to multiple platforms.

CONCLUSION:
Uses of third party library, widgets and ready to use components which makes
  1. Flutter to develop customize applications
  2. Its design more eye catchy
  3. Its functionality more efficient
  4. Speedy Development
  5. Reduced project and maintenance cost
These are the reasons you should consider flutter for Application and web app development.
