We all know when it comes to Cross-Platform Mobile App Development, React Native is really Popular. But Since Flutter came into the market, there have been many problems deciding which to use.

Well, each one has its own pros and cons and use cases. So it's up to you to decide which will be good for the type of App you are going to develop. So to help decide here is some quick and to-the-point difference between Fluter and React-Native that will help you to determine which is best for your app. But before that let's have a quick introduction of both.

So, now that we know some general stuff about both of them, let's go through some questions and their answers, that will help you decide what to use for your app.

1) If you want your App to be Cross-Platform (Android & IOS)?

Ans: Both Flutter or React Native can be used.

2) If you want your App to work on Mobile (iOS, Android), Web, and desktop with a single Codebase?
