Mobile app development is rapidly increasing in today’s world. After the COVID-90 outbreak, life all around the world was changed. So the demand for a mobile app for specific lifestyle and communication apps rose. But developing apps for both the OS like iOS and Android has two different teams and different skill sets. The solution for that is Cross-Platform Mobile applications like Facebook’s React Native and Google’s Flutter. Each one has its own uniqueness and differentiability. We have reviewed different apps made with these platforms and compared the functionalities. But first, here’s quick information about Flutter and React Native features.

What is Flutter?

Flutter is a reactive, open-source cross-platform mobile development framework. Flutter uses the Dart programming language. The Google-developed both Dart and Flutter. The development team uses the frameworks depending on the application features. The initial phase called alpha released in May 2017. However, Google has released the new version in May 2021.

Apps developed with Flutter

Pros and Cons of Flutter

Pros:

  • The development is quick and easy using the same codebase
  • Hot Reload makes both experimentation and bug fixation simpler
  • Layered software architecture reduces the customization abilities
  • Better documentation
  • Different UI prevent errors
  • Design is user-friendly

Cons:

  • Some common issues that aren’t easily fixed
  • Long time to download
  • Takes a lot of space
  • Regularly updated the Dart language
  • Libraries and support are not productive

Flutter used in

  • Small budgets projects
  • Short development time periods
  • UI-centered apps

What is React Native?

Facebook’s React Native is the most renowned it comes to cross-platform mobile development. The react native started as an internal project of a hackathon at Facebook on 2013. And it is released in 2015. The React library is built by a JavaScript framework. React Native helps to ship both iOS and Android applications within a single code base.

Apps developed with React Native

  • Instagram
  • Walmart
  • Tesla
  • Facebook
  • Boomerang
  • Wix

Pros and Cons of React Native

Pros:

  • Extensive code base package because of JS language
  • Have one code base – developers can easily develop apps for multiple devices
  • Developers can have freedom for code reuse and cost-saving
  • Easy to learn for the React developers

Cons:

  • Still needs native developers
  • Performance is bad compared to Flutter
  • Debugging issues are very high
  • Lots of not usable packages and libraries
  • Fragile UI
  • Apps are bigger than native ones

React Native Uses in

  • Big budget projects
  • Complicated apps
  • Reusing code for both mobile and desktop

We know that React Native & Flutter have their own pros and cons. Some industries use Flutter for mobile app development. But React Native is king in most impressive applications like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
