Starting Phase with Flutter development:
Now how we started as Flutter development. Once Google released Flutter SDK in 2017 we got to know about the Flutter with their features. Before that we are already building hybrid and cross platform apps with Ionic, React and other technologies. But we saw the release by Google and checked their feature that is really driving us to start learning Flutter development.
So we put our developer to start learning Flutter and play around and even we hired 3 new developer guys and put on learn Flutter development and they put hours and hours to learn and experiment with Flutter development. I really thank our team. They do a really great job and we came up with the first Flutter app name as Flutter TODO app and we found the great result with their feature like Cross-platform, Single codebase, hard reload, native behavior over the iOS and Android both. And it saves our development time as well development engagement during the app development.
You can check the Flutter TODO app demo below that we built first:
Note: We kept our app as open-source because till then Flutter was in the beta phase so we can’t use it as a production app.
Time to Building Production app with Flutter:
Once Google releases a stable version for Mobile app development with more features then we start building flutter apps for real business that will go on product and/or real marketplace. Since we build our own App marketplace we are starting to build Flutter app for our own marketplace and we build the first app for product is known as Flutter Restaurant app and it surprises all of us. It reduces our 50% development time. We got a flawless UI that will work flawless on iOS and Android both.
Now that was our first product app for real business after we never look back and start building app on real business apps and start uploading on our App Marketplace you can check our all Flutter app demos here:
Here we built apps for the Food industries, Grocery and Retails business, Mobile Technologies and Delivery system. Once we start getting a good response from the market and our users we think we should go a long way with Flutter development. Then we start planning to build some big projects for a full saas solution. Then we planned first our Saas application for the Food ordering system just like Ubereats, Swiggy.
Time to Building Big Project/Saas app with Flutter:
Once after planning we keep getting updates from Flutter and it becomes easier to build nice apps that really help users to build online business with less cost. So we started building a complete SAAS solution for food delivery industries and we built the first readymade Saas solution for the Food delivery system and released it on our marketplace. And we got a good response from users as well as the market that gave us a boost to now we can build any kind of mobile app with Flutter. If you would like to check our First Flutter saas solution demos then please check our Flutter Food Ordering System. And we keep going to build realtime apps for real businesses.
Time to building enterprise app with Flutter SDK:
Now, After successfully building our Saas application and launching it in the market we are more confident to go with enterprise app development with Flutter. After that we got a huge opportunity to work with Airteltigo for their mobile app development from scratch, Now we approach to build with Flutter and they agreed on that then we start planning to build the app. And after 6 Month of continuous work we come with a complete Enterprise solution app that is built with Futter and users loved the app interface and they are happy with the result. Still we are working on maintaining and updating apps based on requirements. After that we start building max apps on Flutter and our clients are very happy. Because it saves almost 40% time as well as cost too.
After successfully building our enterprise solution we start building other enterprise apps and almost deliver more than 10 apps for enterprise, we start thinking to give something back to our Flutter community.
Time to building the open-source for Flutter Dev Community:
Now this time we start building Open-Source UI Library for Flutter to help Flutter developers to build awesome UI and decrease their development team. So I planned and started developing Flutter UI Library. And after continuous work of 2 Month we release our first version of open-source UI Library called GetFlutter and we keep updating our features. And we are very thankful to all Flutter dev communities who give a very good response to us. And it was the first Open-Source UI library of Flutter and one of the biggest UI libraries on Flutter.
But here the challenges came, when we are building open-source we never think about the Trademark and name things after we start getting engagement we got a legal notice with Flutter and Google team regarding our name and we can’t use Flutter name anymore on our open source enven they reported everywhere and we lose every social platform account and our domain. And we lost our social media channels as well as our root domain getflutter.dev.
Time to changing open-source name due to legal issue:
Once we got a n number of pages regarding legal notice to takedown our open-source we start migrated our open-source GetFlutter with the name of GetWidget, Now our GetFlutter open-source become a GetWidget and thank again to all Flutter dev community to keep providing same support and let us encourage to keep building something awesome things.
Time to keep going with Flutter Development:
Now, keep going with Flutter development and build realtime apps using Flutter to provide better experience to our users. Our Recently launched app is Readymade Grocery Shopping and Delivery app - All in one solution and coming with a SaaS solution on Flutter and our project name is Grocery Shopping and Delivery SaaS Solution. It is already in the Testing phase and we are going to release ASAP.
