Nice! Just looking at the homepage, that’s quite a value prop, making Android and iOS apps from a single codebase. What are the best parts so far? How about the worst parts?

I’m coming from iOS background and the way of building the interface is much more different than with Flutter (it is like React, with widgets and stuff). I like that way of building the interface. . Concerning the worst parts, I don’t know yet but maybe the lack of “flexibility” because it is not native code.

Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a nice system to work with. I’ll have to check it out, for sure. I haven’t developed a mobile app in about 8 years (!), so if I dive back in, I’m essentially a blank slate. I remember the Activity and Fragment classes on Android, and segues on iOS – that’s about it. Would you recommend Flutter for a newcomer to mobile development? Or is this a tool you should use once you have the native stuff down?

The Declarative way of making UI is a great thing to learn : https://flutter.dev/docs/development/data-and-backend/state-mgmt/declarative

I never tried React Native so I can’t compare. It is an hybrid framework so it will save you development time for sure if you want to develop for both Android and iOS. But I really like native development as well and it might be good to learn both.
