Developing Mobile-specific Features with Flutter

by Federico Mestrone

Flutter is a great framework for mobile/web/desktop cross-platform development. This course will focus on mobile apps and will teach you how to integrate your app with phone calls, messaging, and audio/video, and how to exploit geolocation features.

What you'll learn

Flutter enables cross-platform development targeting mobile, web, and desktop platforms, but in order to make the most of the capabilities of mobile devices, packages beyond the core ones may be needed. In this course, Developing Mobile-specific Features with Flutter, you’ll learn to use a number of Flutter plugins aimed mainly at Android and iOS. First, you’ll explore how to add audio and videos to your apps, and how to display web pages directly within them. Next, you’ll discover the use of the URL launcher to place calls, send messages, and open the browser from your apps. Finally, you’ll learn how to use the geolocation capabilities of your mobile device. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of mobile development needed to create apps that can target both Android and iOS from a single code base.
