With the advent of technology and burgeoning competition, businesses are beginning to realize that being present on a single platform is no longer sufficient. Having a faster, inexpensive and cross-platform presence is crucial to acquire a greater share of the market revenue. This is where app companies come in, as these needs are easily met by investing in the right kind of app most suited for the business. However, according to app companies, businesses often face a dilemma among choosing between the React Native and Flutter cross-platform app development framework.

React Native
According to app development companies, React Native is a JavaScript framework that originated in 2015. It allows developers to build wonderful user interfaces that are natively rendering for Android and iOS. This gives the advantage of utilizing single codebase, code reusability, upgraded code quality, easier app maintenance, and lower app development cost. It has recently been improved up which increases its potential beyond apps like Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Bloomberg, Tesla, Walmart, and Wix.com.

According to app development company, Flutter is an open-source app development framework, first announced in March 2017. It has been created by Google for building apps for Android, iOS and Google Fuchsia. Its recent stable live version 1.0 was recently announced in 2018. This framework has been chosen by various apps like Google Ads, Alibaba, Reflectly, Hamilton Musical, Coach Yourself, etc.

Differences between React Native and Flutter
While both technologies are unique and provide a range of features in their own right, some differences do exist among them, reveal app development companies.

Installation and Set Up
According to app development company, the installation process for Flutter is much more convenient as it offers a valuable tool to inspect system error, called “Flutter doctor”.

Programming Language
React Native’s coding is done in JavaScript which is popular among web developers, making it easier for them to enter the cross-platform mobile market, share app development companies, though because the language is a dynamically typed language, it is not the best choice for building secure applications.

Flutter, on the other hand, uses the Dart programming language, a rarely used and less known language, say app development companies, but it is quite easy to understand, secure and supports most of the Object-oriented concepts, making it a better choice.

Code Structure
According to app development companies, unlike React Native, Flutter does not separate data, style, and templates, preventing the need to introduce any extra templating language like JSX or XML into the process of creating a layout; allowing everything to be done on the same screen, which boosts convenience. Flutter’s features, called Outline View and Flutter Inspector, help developers to simplify the layout building process.

UI Components and APIs
According to app development companies, using React Native results in a dependency on the third-party libraries for delivering an impressive native experience as it provides the developers with just UI rendering and device access APIs. However, the Flutter framework, with its UI components, device API access, navigation, testing management and loads of libraries; removes the requirement to use third-party libraries, reveal app organization.

Lifecycle Management
According to app companies, due to its simplified app lifecycle handling and optimization, React Native has an advantage over the Flutter framework.

With its detailed and managed documentation, Flutter allows developers the freedom to explore and search for any particular element and create a pleasant experience which is not possible while using React Native due to its heavy reliability on external development kits, resulting in developers having to search for documentation of each individual kit on their own, reveal app development organization.

According to app development companies, though React native has been in the market for longer, allows developers to discuss and share their code and create high performing apps, Flutter is receiving increasing popularity because of its easy-to-use features.
