“Every second is of infinite value – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe”
If you are already part of the mobile app development industry, you must be aware of the fact that developing a new mobile app by evaluating the idea in complete isolation can bring disastrous results.
Because there are millions of apps available in the market where some are on the top and the remaining are failing miserably. For app success, one must have done a lot of hard work, research and everything required and on the other hand, the failing apps are must be the result of less research, not serving what users want and everything.
Every app development project carries its own set of drawbacks and constraints but the priority always lies in succeeding. To serve exactly what a user wants and what market is showing up at, getting feedback at an early stage is the ultimate solution. Thus, building a Minimum Viable Product can be a savior.
Also, with so many mobile app development frameworks available in the market, it is equally important to figure out which framework will match aptly with MVP. Here at Appventurez, our mobile app developers believe and strongly trust Flutter as one of the most appropriate choices for MVP.
Why what and how must be your next question, so without further ado, let’s get started with MVP, Flutter and Flutter for MVP application development process.
The Necessity of MVP
MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is the simplest and the rough version of your mobile application that can solve several problems like- what does a user wants in the app and its features, why a user is not liking the app, what are the features and functionalities that can be added/removed from the app etc. To understand MVP to the core, check out everything about it in detail here.
Through MVP, it becomes easy to validate a business idea. There is a statistic revealing that 70% of tech startups fail to thrive nearly after 20 months after receiving the first financing. Opting for MVP can make a great difference by preparing businesses to understand the loopholes and other issues.
Here are the characteristics of MVP that defines how it is a savior-
- Simplicity of design
- Limited features
- Cost-effective with faster development
- Small scale integration
When this was all about the characteristics of MVP, there are other benefits lying with it also. With MVP, brands can promote and launch their products earlier in the market compared to their competitors along with reaching potential customers earlier. By reaching the customers, businesses and startups can make changes in the app as per users’ requirements.
If users do not like the app idea, businesses through MVP can save their resources and money by abandoning the project and starting the new one without spending a huge amount on the final product.
Seeing the potential and worthiness of MVP, many well-known brands have incorporated this practice into their business idea. Here is a list of companies that have gone ahead using MVP-
Companies who have launched their MVP version successfully
The names of these high brands are enough to show how MVP is the most effective and efficient tool to make an app go Gangnam style.
Here is the gist showing-
MVP – Why Businesses Should Adopt it
Here is the list of benefits of developing MVP-
- MVP is a need for validating the app idea.
- It helps in confirming the interest of the users and to make further changes accordingly.
- By using MVP, the chances of errors get minimized.
- Businesses will require to spend a limited budget for launching the MVP version of the app.
- It can save the overall development time by adding only the necessary features and functionalities to test the preference of the users.
- Through it, businesses can gather feedback about the application for the improvisation of the app.
- It can save resources, money and time by adding only the prioritize features.
- It can help in finding the early adopters of the app.
Then there are companies that have validated their app idea but failed miserably. Well, the reason lies here-
Because they are unable to figure out-
- Customer’s needs
- Platform Compatibility
- Implementation of the core features
- Matching the current and the most modern technology trends

Apart from customer’s needs, platform compatibility, the need for the right technology still stays on the top. Those who are in the industry know about the technology and those who are just entering should need to know that among many other frameworks, Flutter today tops the chart.
To define what makes Flutter the most prominent and the most desired option for the mobile app development and developers simultaneously, let us understand the core of it.
A Quick Overview Of Flutter
Developed by Google and launched in December 2018, Flutter is a cross-platform development framework for building high-performing native apps for both Android and iOS that too from a single codebase.
The platform comes up with enhanced features, bug fixes, and widgets. Also, being open-source, it fully and functionally complements MVP development.
A few of the reasons for its popularity are:
- It has a community of more than 1000 developers and is backed by tech giant Google.
- Mobile app development companies do not require to spend large amounts of licensing fees during experimentation.
- Flutter speeds up the overall app development process along with simplifying it too.
- By using various features and inbuilt tools available in Flutter, a great UI can be made with it.

The amalgamation of Flutter and MVP is the perfect combination of developing an application, which we here at Appventure follows. Let’s take a closer look at the strength of flutter and MVP.
Flutter and MVP- The Duo For The Mobile App Development
The answer to the question of why choose Flutter for MVP app development is that Flutter being an open-source framework makes it an excellent choice for creating outstanding MVP against other frameworks like Ionic, NativeScript, React Native, etc.
Due to the availability of widgets, developing an app with Flutter becomes easy and efficient along with making developers incorporate the changes seamlessly.
Here is how both Flutter and MVP are the best duo till now or better say Flutter for MVP application development is the best combination ever made-
1 – Cost-Effectiveness
Cost is not an issue anymore for developing applications for both platforms.
As Flutter supports cross-platform app development, developers are required to write one codebase for both the platforms. Along with time, it also saves cost too through-
- Reusable codes
- Maximum number of issues can be fixed in one codebase
- Mobile app developers will be required to know about one language only.
2 – Speedy App Development Process
When we question how can Flutter help in building MVP, the answer lies iFlutter appears with hot reload features that make developers view the changes made to the app coding. Due to immediate and quick changes in the app, the overall app development process accelerates and becomes faster.
Furthermore, the hot reload features enable developers to add new features along with letting them fix bugs within minutes.
3 – Amazing Designs
Flutter is filled with a rich collection of UI features, interactive designs, and the latest technology. Attractive UI and interactive designs do attract a number of users along with increasing the overall app download count.
Its SDK support material design and Cupertino, on the other hand, is an assortment for behavioral, visual and motion-oriented widgets which together in return gives a more compelling look to the applications.
4 – Faster-Go-To Market Apps
Last but not least point point in the category of Flutter for MVP application development is- Flutter is integrated with Firebase. Google’s Firebase results in quicker and easier development of the applications. It is filled with several features like authentication, cloud functions, analytics, crash reporting, cloud storage, real-time database and many more that all together enable to create powerful, secure and scalable apps.
Reading all these points makes it clear why Flutter is the best solution for building MVPs.
Let us quickly go through its summary.
- Flutter app development process can be initiated with a minimum learning curve.
- With Dart, 100% of the code can be shared between Android and iOS apps.
- As Flutter is introduced by Google, it is completely reliable and carries great support from the community itself.
- It does not require a powerful machine.
So, if you are still not convinced about the most powerful due-Flutter and MVP, let us give you another instance to clear your doubts.
