As flutter requires a single codebase the cost of production of an application reduces. This allows you to try out different ideas at a comparatively low cost.  More idea implementation can help you create a unique and engaging application. 

  • Native Performance

With the help of a Skia engine and compilation of Dart code into native ARM code Flutter provides native performance on both iOS and Android. This gives a unified performance to every user across platforms. 

  • Easy Third-Party Integration

Flutter offers seamless integration options with other platforms such as Google, Microsoft, Twilio,  Stripe, and more that allow you to run business operations smoothly. Additionally, Flutter can also integrate with AR/VR which upscales customer experience in your store.
