GUI

Flutter: The First Choice for Cross-Platform GUI Development

Should Flutter be your first choice for cross-platform GUI development? 

Looking to develop a cross-platform GUI for your product? Have you considered using the Flutter framework?  

Find out why we think the Flutter framework is attractive for developers, and why it is leaving alternatives like React Native and Xamarin in the dust. 

Don’t want to read the whole thing… We’ve pulled out our three key Flutter advantages for developers: 

  • It’s fast.
    Flutter complies with Arm machine code, Intel machine code, and JavaScript. This means that no matter what mobile, desktop, or embedded device you are deploying to, performance is maintained and optimized for speed. 
  • It’s productive.
    With Flutter’s Hot Reload feature, a developer can build and iterate quickly. Code can be updated, and changes reviewed instantly without ever losing state. 
  • It’s flexible.
    With Flutter, developers can control every pixel. This means that they can adapt and customize graphical interfaces that look and feel great no matter the screen size.
