Flutter App Development
Flutter belongs to the area of our expertise and we have handled several projects with various requirements and implemented Flutter wherever it is necessary.
In one of our projects, the client was looking for an expert developer who can take their video app across the finish line. They needed to connect the mobile app front-end (built with Expo.io) to their WordPress back-end. They built the first version of the app in Expo.io as their MVP. The last piece they needed was to set up Wordpress as the backend, connect the app to it to sync the two, and set up app authentication using Wordpress API.
We were comfortable with either expo.io or Flutter. We develop Flutter using Dart language. We asked the client to share the code repo with us so that we can review the state of the code and advise what would be a faster/economical way forward. Post to this, the process went really smoothly and we delivered exactly what the client was looking for.
Another project was about an app for iPhone and Android that had to be engaging and secure for the users.
We got good experience with native as well as cross-platform app development. We suggested the client consider getting this application done in a Cross-Platform framework, "Flutter". 2 advantage of the same will be :
- Cost-effective - Creating an app on Flutter using Dart language means fewer development hours than creating two native applications i.e. iOS and Android. With FLutter in use, we can have both iOS and Android apps developed in a more cost-effective way.
- Any future updates in-app means involvement of a single Flutter developer hence less time taking and again more cost-efficient.
We have a team of both Native and Cross-Platform app developers, so we won't be having any issue with the choice of tool you like to go with.
In another project, the client needed someone to create a Flutter app with Dart based on an iOS app. The app consisted of a main page with a Map, it was connected to Firebase to read and write data including images. Some other notable frameworks included Lottie. This Flutter app must be consistent across Android and iOS. Functionality must be identical except in the iOS version it loads all pins from Firebase, this version should ONLY pull pins from Firebase if the location was visible on the screen.
Based on our understanding we summed up what needed to be done for meet the client’s expectations:
- Create a custom App bar
- Home screen with map integration
- Fetch data from firebase and populate it in the application based upon the location.
- Integrate Lottie package for implementation of animations within the application.
Having hands-on experience in the flutter framework in Dart language and numerous cross-platform applications we addressed this issue with efficiency.
We used cloud firestore and real-time database functions, as well as their APIs provided by firebase. We have also integrated native device features such as camera, maps, location, internet connectivity in a few applications.
Our objective was to prioritize our clients’ complete satisfaction and we don’t rest until we achieve that. Project understanding comes right after that on which our first objective solely depends on. Following Agile methodology, we welcome changes and try to reflect that successfully on the SDLC and SMLC and well-designed version controls.
