Flutter vs React Native – What to Choose?

by Harish Dev Digital Marketer

As mobile hardware is progressing, the demand for mobile apps has started increasing. Software developers were looking for a platform that could make mobile apps fast.

Today we are going to talk about React-Native and Flutter.


Flutter is an open source UI (SDK) created by Google. The first version of Flutter was known as codename “Sky”. Flutter framework written in C, C++, and Dart Language. Flutter used to develop mobile app, desktop app and web app. flutter initial release was Alpha(v0.0.6)/May 2017 and now currently stable version of Flutter is (v1.17.0)/May 6 2020. Flutter uses single codebase for Android and iOS platforms.

Features of Flutter

  1. Flutter is for developers that want a faster way to build beautiful apps, or a way to reach more users with a single investment.
  2. Flutter is also for designers that want their original design visions delivered consistently, with high fidelity, to all users. In fact, CodePen now supports Flutter.
  3. Flutter is approachable to programmers familiar with object-oriented concepts (classes, methods, variables, etc) and imperative programming concepts (loops, conditionals, etc).

You can build full-featured apps with Flutter, including camera, geolocation, network, storage, 3rd-party SDKs, and more.

What makes Flutter unique

Flutter is different than most other options for building mobile apps because Flutter uses neither WebView nor the OEM widgets that shipped with the device. Instead, Flutter uses its own high-performance rendering engine to draw widgets.

Flutter is different because it only has a thin layer of C/C++ code. Flutter implements most of its system (compositing, gestures, animation, framework, widgets, etc.) in Dart (a modern, concise, object-oriented language) that developers can easily approach read, change, replace, or remove.

React Native

React Native is an open-source JavaScript framework developed by Facebook in 2015. It is used for developing a real, native mobile application for both Android and iOS platforms. It is a JavaScript framework that builds upon the React library to create mobile apps with a single codebase.
