React Native and Flutter has become one of the most trending technologies for Mobile Application Development in 2019. Both the technologies are built by leading tech giants. Flutter is backed by google and React Native by Facebook.
Due to the increasing usage of mobile applications. app development is becoming a buzz. Almost every tech company need to have mobile app development team to remain competitive among other tech companies. iOS and Android has given native tools. Such as Xcode and Swift for iOS, Android Studio and Kotlin for Android to develop applications for their platform.
However, this requires the developers to learn separate languages to each specific platform and it’s time consuming to develop both applications separately. As a result, tech companies have moved from native development to Cross- Platform development to build apps for both iOS and Android quicker with less time using single code base.
Flutter is Google’s mobile SDK for develop high quality applications on iOS and Android. It’s a reactive, Open Source development framework. Flutter is the primary method to create applications for Google Fuchsia.
Programming Language – Dart Flutter uses Dart programming language to build cross-platform applications.

Here’s the documentation for Dart.
