Your business has decided to create a mobile application, perhaps for sale in the market, perhaps for your business users. You have done your homework and you understand that you need to pick the right development environment for your IT team or, your IT consultant has made a recommendation on the right development tools. But, how do you know whether the decision is right for your business?
In this article, we discuss four of the most popular mobile development frameworks, and provide a summary of the benefits of each and the reasons the development community might choose a particular framework for your project.
Flutter is a Google open-source mobile user interface (UI) SDK framework used to build cross-platform, hybrid mobile application solutions for Android and iOS. Its features enable a multi-platform development process using existing code in Dart language to support mobile application development. Developers like Flutter for hybrid mobile app development, primarily because it leverages a single code base. The Google 2D rendering engine allows developers to create impressive visuals and to perform unit and functionality tests and easily create a user interface. Flutter also includes a rapid development environment, for fast rendering and theme options. Although the mobile application market is not that old, the Flutter product has been around a long time, when compared to other options. It launched in 2017 and is still an open-source environment so it is accessible to all developers. It leverages C, C++ and Dart languages and can support mobile applications for desktop, web and mobile devices. The Flutter community includes several developer support forums and is readily accessible to developers for feedback, support and information about the use of Flutter.
Mobile Angular UI
Mobile Angular UI is designed to operate seamlessly with Angular framework and Bootstrap 3. It includes sidebars, overlays, scrollable areas and switches and allows hybrid mobile application developers to leverage an open-source environment to create HTML5 applications. Mobile Angular UI is best suited for light apps and, in general, is less suitable for complex applications. The combined power of Angular and Bootstrap optimizes the development process and makes mobile application developers more productive. Developers can leverage HTML4 to build mobile applications with great user experience (Ux).
No matter your business need, if your team or your IT consultant is planning to design a mobile application, there are many options for cross-platform, hybrid mobile application development and solutions that will satisfy developer needs and ensure that your developers are productive and that your mobile application is designed for sustainability and easy upgrade.
