JavaScript Required

We're sorry, but we doesn't work properly without JavaScript enabled.

We are heading into an era where we are witnessing the technological advancements at a rapid pace and making the things extremely easy and effortless for human life. This task has been headed by the top industry players who are striving hard to take things to the next level. Keeping this in context, the search engine giant Google and social networking giant Facebook have launched Flutter and React Native respectively. The primary objective behind the launch was to narrow the bridge in the development of hybrid and native apps. Both of these are playing a key role but have significant differences between them.


Let us Know 7 crucial differences which Flutter and React Native offers to introduce high-level programming

Choice of Tools and IDE

When you are working on your project and developing something, then having a preferred development environment is the key for any developer. It also simplifies the use of tools that are needed while accessing the app by the native users. This is the premium reason to use a framework that will enable the use of the preferred platform and tools for the development purpose. When it comes to choosing the ideal platform, React is preferred over Flutter.


Time of Development

The time of completion of the project is a key parameter and it becomes more crucial when you have a strict timeline. This is a crucial factor when the time is the main essence. Flutter is popular for its feature of fast development because of their feature of quick customization and fast reloading of the pages. It allows to write the code of the native apps within minutes. Although, React brings some components that are pre-built and ready to use. This makes the process of development easy and smooth.



Documentation is one of the most important segments whenever any app is being developed. The documentation of Flutter is well structured and easy to understand. It is easy to read and carry a simple style. The information is provided in a good manner whenever searched within Flutter. Whereas, the documentation of React Native is a bit difficult and less structured and is highly dependent upon external kits.


Client Use

The major parameter to be successful in the field of app development is that you develop what people love. You use those platforms that are mostly used by the clients and they are comfortable with. Both React as well as Flutters have a major difference when it comes to the adaptation for the clients. React has been very popular among the developers and it has been used widely. It was released back in 2015 and since then it has been used on a large scale including some of the top names from the industry such as Skype, Uber, and Pinterest etc. It has a vast number of features which make it easy to work on and thus build apps for the work of clients.

Programming Language

An excellent platform becomes a handful when it gets the support of the best programming language. Though each programming language has its own features and pros and cons, but still choosing the best language to develop your application is a key part. Selecting a language that is easy to work on and whose complexity is less is one major challenge. Google's Flutter and Facebook's React are distinct in supporting their programming language. On one hand, the Flutter supports the Dart language by Google whereas, on React, the programmers can easily work on the JavaScript. According to a report by IEEE, JavaScript is one of the top 50 programming languages in the year 2018 and is used by more than 80% developers.


User Interface

UI plays one of the prominent roles in deciding the difference between a good app and an amazing app. The UI for both the Flutter and React carry distinct differences. When the primary need is about focusing on the customization of the application, then Flutter is the one that is going to provide a variety of options. Its UI can be made flexible. Additionally, it provides simple, naturally scrolling motion API's and animations that make the task of developers very easy. On the other hand, React enables the developer to choose from the list of extensive options from the external development kits to enhance the UI.



The most important segment that any app should carry - its performance. Flutter edges ahead than React when it comes to giving excellent performance. Flutter has a better performance rate than React because of its speed of 60 FPS (Frames per second). While React also carry such kind of capability but its performance, reduces because it needs to bridge the gap of interfaces when it works with JavaScript.


These are the major differences between Flutter and React and how they are becoming crucial in mobile app development industry.
