Hi,


I wanted to know what is the future scope of flutter for mobile app development? Currently we are using React Native for cross platform mobile app development and thinking to explore flutter as well.


Anyone has used Flutter before? How complex it is with compared to React Native?

No I have not. I think you are talking about the web that should work with mobile devices as well. But I was asking for the Mobile application.

I've not used Flutter or React Native. But have you considered Progressive Web Apps? Just a thought..

Actually, PWAs can look and feel like native apps. You can even add it to your home screen with an app icon as if it's an app on your phone. That means you don't have to write two different native apps for iOS and android.

Got it but it will run in a browser, right?

Yes.. It runs on a browser. But if you save it to your home screen, I think the address bar disappears. So you actually feel like you're in an app. You can try flipkart.com, it's a PWA.
