What is a Flutter app?

What is a Flutter app?

A Flutter app is a cross-platform mobile app development technology by Google, a solid, next-generation alternative to other cross-platform frameworks, such as React Native.

A Flutter app has its ready-made environment and a widget-based technology offering your business design-focused solutions.

Flutter apps in Switzerland are increasingly more popular as they feature a single code base, a native-like performance, and outstanding user experience.

What are the advantages of developing a Flutter app?

What are the advantages of developing a Flutter app?

The main advantage of developing a Flutter app for your mobile devices is its improved productivity and modern app designs. This means:

  • Reduced development time and costs, as you need only one code for the two apps
  • High performance, stability, and independence thanks to its own language called Dart
  • Great customization & user experience with ready-made, adaptive and customizable widgets
Flutter vs. React Native  App Development

Flutter vs. React Native App Development

The other leading cross-platform technology is React Native by Meta. Our key preference is Flutter as it outperforms React Native in many ways:

  • Flutter is now the leading cross-platform mobile technology
  • Improved startup time and overall performance
  • Delivers a better user experience
  • More control over the look and feel (user interface) of your mobile app both on iOS and Android platforms

If yet unsure ask yourself the question: would you rather provide your users an app with a technology backed by Google, like Flutter, or a technology powered by Meta?

Flutter Apps vs. Native Apps

Flutter Apps vs. Native Apps

When it comes to Flutter app vs. native mobile apps, limitations should be considered:

  • The lower adoption of Dart makes it more difficult to find a reliable tech partner
  • Can’t immediately react to the latest native changes
  • Less choice and support of third-party libraries and hardware APIs
  • A bigger app size, thus slightly slower at the start
  • The support for iOS is better with native technology, as Flutter is a Google product
  • Not good for larger or more complex solutions (including Bluetooth communication, advanced augmented reality, etc.)
When to develop a Flutter app?

When to develop a Flutter app?

Flutter is a modern, stable and performant technology that has a cost advantage over native app development as you can build your apps from a common code base.

Flutter can be a great solution for the development of low and medium-complexity mobile apps when the budget is an important factor.

Native technology might be a better choice for apps that have complex hardware-related features or where you don’t want to take any risks on performance and maintenance.

We at Swiss Tomato specialize in mobile app development both native and cross-platform. Each technology can be the right choice for developing a mobile application and we’d be happy to discuss your business idea.

Flutter app development timing and processes

Flutter app development timing and processes

A Flutter mobile app takes 3 to 6 months to develop depending on the complexity of your idea.

Discovery & scoping
2-4 weeks
Starting with a series of workshops we help to define the needs of your target audience and the aims of the mobile app, and identify the key functional blocks.

Structuring these functions according to priorities and working out a detailed specification document will become our guide when developing your mobile app.
Show more Show less
Mobile App wireframe & design
4-6 weeks
Based on the specification our experts will create the wireframe of your mobile app. With the help of our team’s go-to prototyping tool, Figma, we can visualize both the creative and functional parts, screen by screen.

Following your brand’s colors and guidelines we design a simple-to-use UX (User Experience) and a UI (User Interface) that can be used across multiple devices.
Show more Show less
Development of the Flutter app
6-12 weeks
Once the planning phase is over and we have the final specifications and wireframes, development can begin.

Our agency will assign a team of Flutter and back-end developers who will create a mobile app that is pixel-perfect and runs smoothly on different devices and operating systems.
Show more Show less
Testing and bug fixing
2-4 weeks
Our team will apply thorough testing methods to prevent any bugs. Testing the mobile app on various devices and operating systems, and following a predefined list of tasks to be performed are essential before handing it over for client testing.

Once the client finished the testing, we will eliminate the last bugs and get everything set for the launch.
Show more Show less
Publication of the Flutter app
Once the test phase is complete, we prepare your Flutter app for release and publish it to the app stores.

We will support you at launch as well: our agency will test the mobile app once more in the live environment and address any potential issues.

After that, your new Flutter mobile app will be ready to impress your users.

What are the costs to expect when developing a Flutter mobile app?

What are the costs to expect when developing a Flutter mobile app?

Though determined by multiple aspects, as a rule of thumb you can count on 300-1’500 work hours. The development cost is calculated by multiplying the number of hours by the hourly rate.

As you need a sizeable team of experts and quality time to create a high-performance mobile app, we formed a pro team based in Switzerland and Hungary to offer you exceptional quality for a fair price.

Since Flutter is a cross-platform technology, you can count on 25-30% fewer hours on front-end development compared to native development.

Development hours based on the complexity of the Flutter app

Development hours based on the complexity of the Flutter app

The complexity of your app will define the working hours needed and hence the budget you need to plan for the development of your Flutter app.

Let us give you some general estimations on the development hours needed based on complexity.

Simple Flutter mobile app
A simple mobile app with an already existing back-end takes 250-350 hours of development time and about 12-14 weeks timeframe.
Medium-complexity mobile app
A medium-complexity app presumes a limited number of functions that need to be developed both on the front-end and the back-end. For such a mobile app expect 350-550 hours and a development time of 14-16 weeks.
High-complexity mobile app
A Flutter app of high-complexity that has several special features – such as in-app payments, user management, complex content management module, integration of 3rd party systems – and an advanced back-end needs 650-1500 development hours and 5-7 months of development.
