A cross-platform mobile programming framework was launched by Google in 2017. Flutter’s quick refresh feature makes it ideal for trying out new features and correcting minor issues. It allows developers to quickly test changes made by recent updates without having to relaunch the app after making changes to the source code.

Progressive Web Apps are not frameworks in and of themselves but rather a strategy to create cross-platform mobile experiences. They have a more natural feel than ordinary web pages, and you can add them to the device’s home screen with a personalised icon and push notifications. PWAs can also be used on an offline device. These, on the other hand, are best suited to very simple (read-only) programs. It’s important to remember that PWA apps can’t be published on the Apple App Store.
- More rapid development
- Code that may be repurposed
- Cost savings
- Consistency of platform
- A larger audience
- Because cross-platform programs must be responsive to a variety of devices and platforms, development becomes more difficult. Developers will have to create exceptions for different devices and platforms to accommodate for the variations, which will add to their workload – especially when it comes to more complicated features.
- Every time a new feature for Android or iOS is released, it takes some time to update both applications to incorporate the new function. Updates are sent more quickly to native apps.
- To achieve great performance, additional knowledge is required. It’s a prevalent misconception that cross-platform apps operate worse than native apps. Flutter and React Native, for example, aspire to run at 60 frames per second. Cross-platform applications may, in most situations, function to the same level as native apps if the developers have sufficient talent and experience.
