Google’s ‘Flutter’ Framework For Making iOS & Android Apps Is Now Ready In Beta
By Yoon Sann Wong, 28 Feb 2018
Google has announced the first beta release of its free and open source ‘Flutter’ framework, which boasts dual-platform capabilities. ‘Flutter’ prides itself on quick development, flexible UI, and native performance to create apps that work on both iOS and Android.
Even though Google already has an existing mobile SDK called ‘Android’, it isn’t leaving mobile app development to a sole solution. Furthermore, despite only being released in beta, Ars Technica highlights that Google is already proudly endorsing the SDK through its own apps, such as AdWords, and its Fuchsia OS.
‘Flutter’ was apparently used to write a large part of Fuchsia’s UI. If the OS even comes into fruition, many of the apps developed through ‘Flutter’ would then technically also become Fuchsia apps, as the code could be easily ported over to the OS.
Learn more about ‘Flutter’ in its promotional video below and via its website.
