Flutter 2.0.0 | What’s new


Flutter 2.0.0 :

Flutter version 2.0.0 released on march 3rd providing some additional features for development.Till now flutter was used to develop apps for android and iOS devices.

But with the release of flutter version 2.00 it extended it’s services to other platforms like windows, mac, linux and web apps i.e., apps developed to use on browser.

As a developer its very tedious task to work on different platforms with the same project because the logic has to be changed according to the operating system way of adopting it.


How is work’s ?

For example we might notice a simple change in android and iOS regarding data storage options like shared preferences in android is similar to NSUserDefaults in iOS.

In the above scenario as a developer you need to implement both to store data on these devices like android and iOS.

So in flutter we can use shared preferences and can store data on both android and iOS devices as well so here you can save time and get the functionality as well similarly there are other ways where you can save time which makes flutter a key option for developer.
