Is it good idea to dive into Flutter/Dart or using Kotlin for mobile apps?

    personally prefer kotlin

    if you wanna do iOS dev (as implied by the tags), you can forget Kotlin

    for Android though... idk, i personally still use Java there, the Android framework is kinda awkward to use with Kotlin imo

    haven't tried Flutter, though I've looked at a couple of their examples and didn't exactly like it, but i might give it a try at some point

    Flutter is amazing.

    That being said, last time I used it (a week after release), it was still missing some native features like camera support. That has probably been fixed though

    @Krokoklemme There is a beta of Kotlin Native, that also supports compiling to iOS apps, have not tried it tbh as I don't give a shit about this nonsense, true saves time writing, but good luck supporting platform specific features ...

    Cross-Platform dev is not mature yet.. and I find it more away to be a stable for important App using

    It depends on what you want to create. If it requires complex stuff, definitely stick with Android and iOS, though for simple apps fetching data etc., Flutter is REALLY nice.

    I know it's not the question but we use Xamarin. Business Logic is shared. UI is platform specific. It's a good trade-off.

    What do you work in usually broooooo. If your doing web apps like 80% of us then use react/vue/angular native. Then watch a know, you’ll have an expertise over an architecture that will do it all. I’ve looked for dart jobs on indeed, I think there might be two in all the USA. I kid but seriously, protect yourself in this market and use the tried and true

    @gitpush yeah, ik but i wouldn't really recommend Kotlin/Native to anyone as of now as it's still highly experimental
