Technology comes in and goes out day by day. iT brings with it many kinds of innovation and facilities that developers and programmers can use. Businesses and companies are looking forward to developing new and able apps. The growing consumer market has put on a lot of demand on companies and businesses to produce apps that are able to provide value to consumers. because of this reason there are many Technologies that are coming up in support of cross platform app development as well as hybrid app development. These two Technologies offer a combination similar to native technologies as well as new and improved versions of facilities that were otherwise not present in native apps.

 In recent times to Technologies have long dominated the market of cross platform apps as both these technologies are able to produce feature rich apps that can entice consumers.

 These technologies are flutter and react native.

In this article we will have a look at which is the best technology to design apps and as far as cross platform app development is concerned

Flutter vs React Native- Similarities

 Both the frameworks have been designed from the ground up to solve the same set of problems, so there would plenty of similarities which we will be outlining here

  •  Both the Technologies are created by stall words in their respective fields, Facebook and Google. Facebook has created react native, Google has created flutter. Because they are highly from popular tech Giants supporting these Technologies, the support that will be provided for this technology is also immense in nature

  • Both the technologies are based on open source standards. And there will be no problem getting the support needed for developers and designers as a form of constant updates and improvements done to the framework, these updates are released in the form of small patches that will help developers and designers to fix bugs and use new features.

  • Both the technologies are able to provide great UI experience for users, in the form of their respective components for react native, as well as widgets for flutter. The UI produced by both these technologies are seamless and efficient as far as the user interface is concerned.

  • Both these technologies provide a feature called as hot reload, which enables changes to be made to the apps User Interface in real time as well as this change is shown to the developer on an immediate basis. 

  • Both the technologies offer easy configuration in setup features, so any developer or programmer will have no problem setting up the environment to use any of the two technologies.

Flutter vs React Native- Differences.

There are many multiple differences that can be pointed out when using any of these two Technologies.


React native technology is based on the JavaScript language. and as we all know that JavaScript is the number one language for programmers and Developers according to a recent stackoverflow survey that was done this decade. 

Programmers and Developers who are experienced in JavaScript will face no problem or difficulties in mastering react native in order to create rich and flowable apps for consumers and users alike. 

On the other hand when we compare flutter, it is based on the Dart programming language, and it still is a natural language as it has not been time tested as efficiently as JavaScript. programmers and Developers will find the language to be a bit immature as far as the flexibility is concerned. It is no problem to master the language what time will only tell if programmers and Developers will be able to do it.


The engine used by flutter for the development of the language Framework is C + +, which is the direct derivative of c, therefore the speed and flexibility that C has to offer, is the same speed and flexibility that you will experience because of the uses of C++ at its Core. 

 The performance wise comparison that can be done for flutter based apps, we seem to notice that it was adequate performance and responsiveness as far as the performance objective is concerned. Users will have no problem in getting the AAP to respond and achieve the users objectives. 

On the other hand react native using JavaScript Bridge to connect to the JSON components and translate the React native into its release event JavaScript code, therefore the speed will be based on what JavaScript is able to provide. This does not mean it is less performant in nature, 

it only means in terms of share performance, flutter wins this round hands down.

APIs and UI:

In this comparison, flutter has the maximum number of points because of that shared compatibility with many different API and UI, Flutter provides a richer set of possibilities and opportunities. 

On the other hand react native has to use third party libraries to provide integration of the features and functions. Flutter has built-in rendering for components, Dedicated tools for testing purposes, navigation, and many more


In the document comparison scenario, Flutter has a richer set of documentation that is uniquely defined and detailed, programmers or developers will be able to master it and gain knowledge from it. 

On the other hand react native documentation is still immature in nature, as it is assumed that developers already know JavaScript, and the concepts and examples as well as the illustrations are explained in JavaScript. So we must assume that developers are familiar with JavaScript in order to master them thoroughly.


 We have made detailed comparisons that will help you to choose the best framework as far as cross platform development is concerned. It all depends upon which Framework you prefer and what features do you want your hybrid app to have, that will decide the Framework that you will be using.
