What is Hybrid App Development?

Hybrid app development is to create a single app single codebase but run on multiple platforms. The app will run on Android and iOS and the code can also be reused for web apps and desktop apps.
Many platforms in which a hybrid app can be created, e.g. React Native, Ionic Framework, Xamarian, Flutter, etc...

Why choose Flutter?

Flutter is a software development kit (SDK) with prewritten code, customizable widgets, as well as libraries, tools, and documentation that together serve to build cross-platform apps. It is an open-source development framework developed by Google.
The first version of Flutter was known as codeName ‘Sky’ and ran on the Android operating system.
Flutter apps use the Dart programming language for creating an app.
Below is a list of some of the features and qualities that make you think of choosing for a flutter.

1. Cross-Platform Development
2. Fast Development
3. Beautiful UI
4. Good Documentation
5. Hot Reload & Hot Restart

1. Cross-Platform Development:

Flutter uses the single codebase to develop mobile apps and run on both android and iOS platforms.
Flutter has exclusive widgets and a unique design that makes it possible to develop applications for different platforms.
Developers do not need extra coding time for an app that works on a single platform.

2. Fast Development:

Flutter is the cross-platform framework for fast application development. The basic codes of the flutter and ‘Hot reloading’ or ‘hot restart’ features allow developers to see code changes in a second, so developers can write more code in less time.

3. Beautiful UI:

Flutter SDK is a UI toolkit for building beautiful.
It provides a good user interface framework for building native apps for mobile, web, and desktop.
Flutter uses customized widgets for iOS and Android and provides a native feel to users.

5. Hot Reload & Hot Restart:

Flutter’s hot reload feature helps you quickly and easily experiment, create UIs, add features, and fix bugs.
Only flutter apps in debug mode can be hot reloaded.
Hot Reload will rebuild all existing widgets. Only rebuilding widgets code is automatically re-executed. It doesn't re-executed main() and initState() methods.
Hot reload feature work with the press r key on the terminal.
Hot restart features destroy state values and set state defaults.
Hot restart feature works with press R (Shift + r) key on the terminal.
