Flutter Beta Arrives with New Way to Create Native Mobile Apps

Flutter has come quite a ways since then, however it is still focusing heavily on responsiveness and ease of development, with the goal of enabling the eventual development of apps designed for 120 Hz displays from the ground up.

As a cross-platform SDK, Flutter apps work on iOS and Android. Well, developing apps that support multiple platforms and for different devices can be a pain for developers.

While Flutter was unveiled in its current form as an Alpha build at Google I/O 2017, some of you may remember Flutter from the original Sky demo at the Dart developer summit in 2015. Flutter has been used in production apps with millions of installs, apps built with Flutter have been featured in the App Store and Play Store (for example, Hamilton: "The Musical), and startups and agencies have been successful with Flutter".

They comfortably overcame Girona at the Nou Camp on Sunday thanks to a hat-trick from Luis Suarez and a brace from Lionel Messi . Karim played very well and he deserved to score as he contributed so much in our build-up play", Zidane told a news conference.

Flutter is what makes Fuchsia possible, and as they tell us in 9to5Google and some developers have been using it successfully to create applications for both Android and iOS, because the apps and interfaces created with Flutter use the same code base for both platforms. It also has the ability to transform the experience from platform to another by changing the scrolling behaviour, buttons, sliders, dialogue boxes, and switches among others from Android's Material Design standards to iOS' Cupertino ones. Flutter apps run via natively compiled code so they perform better than apps run via interpreter and Flutter has been created to deliver a "constant 60fps". So an app built with Flutter will provide full native capabilities on both platforms.

What's more, Flutter has a limited amount of C and C++ code. For the most part, that means better tooling, like support for Android Studio and Visual Studio Code for writing Flutter apps. I can not imagine a stronger endorsement of an SDK from Google than to use it to power your multibillion dollar ad-platform UI. With Flutter's package library reaching over 1000 packages, many commonly required tools are available, and more are being added frequently. On Android, you can take a peek behind the scenes with the Flutter Gallery demo app. When developers are writing Flutter apps for Android and iOS, they're also technically writing Fuchsia apps, or at least code that will carry over to Fuchsia very easily. The Flutter beta also works with pre-release of Dart 2. Developers can check out the issue tracker and Getting Started guide for more information. New devices like the iPhone X and operating systems like iOS 11 are supported as well. The biggest challenge for new operating systems is attracting a critical mass of software, so that's important.

The update to Google's Dart programming language is fully integrated with the beta, bringing support for new tools that help remove boilerplate and speed up the development process.
