What are Flutter and React Native?
Flutter is Google’s UI toolkit used for building beautiful, natively compiled applications from a single codebase for mobile, web, and desktop known as a cross-platform app; until now only referred to Android and iOS. But late last year Google also announced that Flutter developers will soon be able to target macOS, Windows, and Linux.

Pros and Cons of Flutter and React Native
1. Programming Language
2. Technology Stack
3. Installation Method
4. UI Components
React Native heavily relies on third-party libraries for accessing native modules. Whereas Flutter comes with a rich set of UI rendering components, navigation testing, widgets, stateful management, device API access, and loads of libraries. This allows developers to easily leverage the UI on both platforms. This independence of Flutter on third-party libraries, unlike React Native, makes Flutter the winner.
5. Testing Support
Which Framework would be the best for you?
Other than the conditions discussed above;
Choose React Native when:
- If your app requires multiple interactions with an OS or seldom needs native libraries
- If your app needs minimalistic UI
- If your app design is platform-specific
Choose Flutter when:
- If your app needs to handle less common, or particular tasks.
- If you require custom communication via Bluetooth.
