Here's how Google describes them: " These apps are new to the scene and quietly building a fanbase - from newcomers on the brink of getting big to our favorite niche platforms".

Google is aiming to ease cross-platform mobile application development with the Tuesday release of the Flutter toolkit, representing yet another attempt to create a standard to address all possible use cases.

It's the time of the year again when search giant Google comes up with the "best of" or "top 10" in different categories.

The Flutter 1.0 release today is the result of all of that testing and playing around, and brings about some new features including a new version of Dart.

Recently bumped up to Dart 2.1, Google's open source language is characterized by the company as having clear and concise syntax, simple tooling, fast performance enabled by ahead-of-time compilation, suitability for reactive programming, familiar object orientation syntax and structure, and portability (can compile to ARM and x86 code, or JavaScript for the Web).

According to Google, the most popular song of the year turned out to be Taki Taki, followed by Mere Naam Tu (From "Zero"), It's definitely you, Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and Dilbar (From "Satyameva Jayate"). With Flutter, Google could see similar dynamics, as developers building their apps on Flutter might be more inclined to choose Google Cloud to power their infrastructure.

Flutter, he added, will "enable designers to deliver their full creative vision without being forced to water it down due to limitations of the underlying framework". So Google also announced a new feature "Add to App", that makes it easier for developers to add codes to the existing apps. A great example of this is Square, which showed off a plugin that allows other apps to easily accept payment with a Flutter app.

In recent years Google have separated a lot of their apps from their devices and made them available for all on the Play Store.

"I was blown away by the speed of all the animations and transitions in production builds". They include the application used to promote the musical "Hamilton" as well as Egypt's Suez Canal Authority app, and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.'s new photo app. Google's developer teams have used Flutter themselves to create new apps for the AdWords platform and the Google Shopping Express service.
