In this blog, we will discuss two top-rank frameworks i.e. React Native and Flutter. Earlier we needed time, money, and skills to develop cross-platform applications. But nowadays companies need the fastest way to develop native apps. To develop native apps, we must know JAVA for android and SWIFT for ios which waste our time. React native and flutter give us the advantage to write a single code and deploy it to various platforms.
From a single codebase in a flutter, we create natively-compiled apps for mobile and desktop. Google has recently developed cross-platform mobile app development. Dart is the programming language used by flutter. It enables the creation of expressive and flexible user interfaces with native performance.
React native uses hot reloading or live reloading. When a user makes any changes in the code, changes will be visible to the developer immediately which is the main advantage to seeing the real-time changes in the application.
If we already have an app and we want to improve that app. We don’t need to re-create that app. By using React Native, we can add components that we had to create in our app. It saves our time and money.
React-native makes it easy for developers to pick up where someone left the work and start coding. It increases the flexibility of developers and improves the performance of mobile applications.
React native creates a vulnerability in the security of the system. If you are creating finance and banking apps you don’t need to choose to react-native because for the banking app the data is confidential and we need security for confidential data.
Flutter provides fast reloading after changes are made in the application.
Flutter is open-source and free to use. They provide substantial documentation and a large community that helps you to solve any problem you might run into.
You may utilize the same code base for your iOS and Android apps because Flutter is cross-platform. This will undoubtedly save you time and money.
Since widgets are the part of flutter app. That’s why we will experience fewer compatibility issues on different operating systems which saves time.
Browsers do not currently support Flutter-based applications. This implies you won’t be able to use any web applications. It also does not support watchOS and tvOS.
Dart is a lesser-known programming language, yet it is necessary to master it to work with Flutter.
It does not support 3rd party libraries which increases the programming tasks.
flutter app size is larger than 5MB.

Firstly, open a terminal and run these commands:
$ flutter create my_app
$ flutter analyze
$ flutter test
$ flutter run lib/main.dart
Firstly, open terminal and run these commands:
$ npx react-native init new_project
$ cd new_project
$ react-native run-android
