Ionic vs Flutter: Best Platform for Hybrid
App Development
Being part of a world increasingly working on mobile devices, it has
become imperative for companies to have performant cross-platform
2
mobile apps that work seamlessly on all operating systems and
cater to a more significant share of the customer base.
When it comes to cross-platform mobile apps, the two leading
frameworks used in the modern-day tech realm to build
high-performing cross-platform apps are Ionic and Flutter.
Both frameworks are inherently different, despite having the common
goal of developing high-performing mobile apps. And if you think there
will be many similarities between the working process of the leading
cross-platform app development frameworks, you are highly mistaken.
For any enterprise, deciding which one is best for their project can be
tricky. Thus, this article will try to understand and conclude the debate
between Flutter and the Ionic framework to help enterprises decide
the best mobile app development framework for their business
requirements.
3
Flutter: An Overview
Do you know, according to the 2021 developer survey, Flutter is the
most popular cross-platform mobile framework, and 42 percent of
software developers use Flutter for hybrid mobile app development.
Google’s brainchild – Flutter, is a relatively scalable and fast
cross-platform framework that primarily functions as a UI toolkit to
create feature-rich and powerful cross-platform applications.
Developed in 2017, the first version of Flutter was released in 2018
with the support of the ECMA standard.
4
Empowered with an intuitive interface, a library of elements, and
many templates, Flutter support Dart programming language, utilizes
Swift and Objective C for iOS integration and Java for Android.
The framework’s thriving user community with open-source libraries,
resources, and answers to all programming dilemmas is what sets
Flutter framework apart from the rest of mobile app development
frameworks.
Advantages of Flutter
While comparing Flutter vs. Ionic, Flutter has many decent selling
points, including:
● Hot-reload — One of the unique features of Flutter is Hot
Reload. The changes are visible as soon as the flutter app
developer or designer updates the code.
● Rich & Powerful Widgets — Combined with RichWidgets,
the Flutter framework equips mobile app developers with
an extensive library to add rich, layered functionalities in
apps compatible with any operating system.
● Flawless back-end integration — Whether the backend is
in Java supporting Android or Objective C or Swift
5
supporting iOS, Flutter integrates smoothly enough to
make the frontend look as native as the backend.
● Quick iteration — Flutter offers swift iteration cycles that
save coding and quality control hours as testing is needed
for one codebase only.
Disadvantages of Flutter
It is always advised to remember that every tool or technology has its
definite downsides. They may or may not affect the flutter app
development for your business. But here are some common
disadvantages you may experience:
● Immaturity of the platform — Compared to Ionic, Flutter
is competitively a new platform launched less than three
years ago; therefore, one major downside of using flutter
for hybrid mobile app development is the lack of
community-generated tools and libraries.
● Rendering issues — Another downside of flutter app
development that comes into consideration is the plug-ins
rendering issues if you’re using vectored or moving images
while developing a hybrid mobile app.
6
● Platform compatibility — While Flutter offers
cross-platform interoperability, apps like tvOS, Android
Auto, CarPlay and watchOS won’t function flawlessly.
● Updating roadblocks — Flutter makes you work through
its processes every time to post system changes.
When to use Flutter Framework for Hybrid Mobile Application
Development
Flutter can be used for the following purposes:
● Developing Minimally Viable Product (MVPs), utilizing
Flutter’s light construction to make speedy first edition or
proof of concept apps
● Building apps using material design language
● Building Apps having Simple Logic OS Plugins
● High-performance apps featuring Skia rendering engine
● Flexible UI that use brilliant code-dense widgets
● Reactive apps with heavy data integration and user
interaction

The framework’s thriving user community with open-source libraries, resources, and answers to all programming dilemmas is what sets Flutter framework apart from the rest of mobile app development frameworks. Advantages of Flutter While comparing Flutter vs. Ionic, Flutter has many decent selling points, including: ● Hot-reload — One of the unique features of Flutter is Hot Reload. The changes are visible as soon as the flutter app developer or designer updates the code. ● Rich & Powerful Widgets — Combined with RichWidgets, the Flutter framework equips mobile app developers with an extensive library to add rich, layered functionalities in apps compatible with any operating system. ● Flawless back-end integration — Whether the backend is in Java supporting Android or Objective C or Swift
  • 5. 5 supporting iOS, Flutter integrates smoothly enough to make the frontend look as native as the backend. ● Quick iteration — Flutter offers swift iteration cycles that save coding and quality control hours as testing is needed for one codebase only. Disadvantages of Flutter It is always advised to remember that every tool or technology has its definite downsides. They may or may not affect the flutter app development for your business. But here are some common disadvantages you may experience: ● Immaturity of the platform — Compared to Ionic, Flutter is competitively a new platform launched less than three years ago; therefore, one major downside of using flutter for hybrid mobile app development is the lack of community-generated tools and libraries. ● Rendering issues — Another downside of flutter app development that comes into consideration is the plug-ins rendering issues if you’re using vectored or moving images while developing a hybrid mobile app.
  • 6. 6 ● Platform compatibility — While Flutter offers cross-platform interoperability, apps like tvOS, Android Auto, CarPlay and watchOS won’t function flawlessly. ● Updating roadblocks — Flutter makes you work through its processes every time to post system changes. When to use Flutter Framework for Hybrid Mobile Application Development Flutter can be used for the following purposes: ● Developing Minimally Viable Product (MVPs), utilizing Flutter’s light construction to make speedy first edition or proof of concept apps ● Building apps using material design language ● Building Apps having Simple Logic OS Plugins ● High-performance apps featuring Skia rendering engine ● Flexible UI that use brilliant code-dense widgets ● Reactive apps with heavy data integration and user interaction Also Read: Flutter App Development: Common FAQs Answered
  • 7. 7 Ionic: An Overview Do you know, Currently, there are more than 5 million apps built on Ionic available in the market. And approximately 86% of developers prefer using Ionic. The first version of Ionic came into existence in 2013 when three coders named Max Lynch, Adam Bradley and Ben Sperry built an open-source UI toolkit on AngularJS. On 25th July 2019, the latest yet stable version of the Ionic cross-platform app development framework was released, and since then, Ionic has become one of the most popular cross-platform app development frameworks known for providing efficient performance with minimum DOM manipulation. To define, Ionic is a well-integrated, open-source framework and UI toolkit used to build high-performing desktop & mobile applications with well-known languages like HTML, CSS, React Native, Angular, Vue.JS and JavaScript for integration with your backend. The Ionic framework primarily targets to improve the frontend user experience by equipping hybrid app developers with vast libraries of mobile-optimized UI components, tools and gestures to build future-ready mobile apps that reciprocate impact and increase customer engagement.
  • 8. 8 Advantages of Ionic Ionic is the only framework that allows developers to create a single, simple-to-use JavaScript codebase. In addition, here are a few advantages of using Ionic for cross-platform application development. ● Platform-independence — Being a platform-independent framework, Ionic reduces the time, effort, and resources employed to build a cross-platform app with a native look and feel. ● Simplified developer interface — Ionic uses a capacitor that saves development time and creates an easy-to-use interface to access native API and native SDK on platforms. ● Community Support — Ionic is built on top of popular technologies such as Cordova and Angular and has an active community for support. This makes it easy to access quick responses to queries while developing cross-platform apps. ● Easy Testing — Another advantage of Ionic is mobile app testing. It is easier to test on a desktop browser or perform simulator testing for iOS, and Android apps using Cordova commands with Ionic.
  • 9. 9 ● Scalability — Scales efficiently as the number of active users doesn’t affect its performance. Disadvantages of Ionic Now that we’ve covered some of the significant advantages of the Ionic mobile application development framework, now is the time to look at some of the disadvantages. ● Plugin Dependent System — Ionic offers a plethora of plugins, yet it’s imperative for developers to create some highly-specific features. In simpler words, if you’d like to use another plugin that uses other languages/libraries, you may find yourself trying to version them back over to JavaScript on your own. ● Absence of Hot Reloading — Ionic doesn’t accommodate hot reloading and refreshes the whole app whenever the developer changes, slowing down your development speed. ● Security threats — While this isn’t the case on the newer updates of Ionic, using older versions won’t provide code uglification. ● Performance — Using Ionic to build heavy applications makes the app crawl. Thus it isn’t suitable for
