Building Your Dream App? React Native or Flutter?
When building an app the list of questions to be answered is immense. Design, UI, functionality will have a host of questions that come along throughout development. One of the biggest questions to answer right from the beginning is to choose React Native or Flutter when building a cross-platform app. When answering the question it is not a matter about which one is better, rather which will serve your needs the best.
Incredibly Useful Frameworks
In the great react native vs flutter debate what is often overlooked is what they both have in common. Both are capable of coding cross-platform apps while using only one code language base. They both feature hot reloading, great UI, a range of useful tools as well as native features. All of these features combined makes sure that both React Native and Flutter are great tools to have in your arsenal but there are significant differences to consider.
Rate of Adoption
React Native has been around longer than Flutter, meaning that React Native has a clear advantage in terms of adoption. Products like Facebook, Instagram, Uber Eats, Tesla, Bloomberg, and many more use React Native for their mobile apps. This has further led to the popularity of React Native. This is the current reality that results in jobs for React Native being in high demand.
This may not be the case for long though. With Google backing the development of Flutter it has caused quite a stir and garnered significant amounts of attention. Currently, Alibaba and Google Ads have incorporated Flutter into their mobile apps. With such backing Flutter, developers can be expected to have their skills increase in demand.
Currently, we are seeing significant changes in the mobile development landscape. Corporations no longer want to invest in developing apps for a variety of platforms available to consumers. Technology has enabled the development of cross-platform presenting attractive possibilities to business, saving costs.
