How to Develop a Flutter App with Integrated Data Capture Functionality

May 5, 2022 by Socket Mobile | WEBINARS


Walk through the ins and outs of application development using Flutter and data capture integration with Socket Mobile Software Engineer Matthew Croak. Flutter, an open-source framework created by Google, is designed for building natively compiled, multi-platform applications from a single codebase. Engineered to deploy from mobile, desktop, web, and embedded devices, Flutter has quickly gained popularity since its launch in 2018.

Due to its popularity, Socket Mobile has included support for Flutter in their CaptureSDK. Integrated into thousands of applications, CaptureSDK provides easy-to-use software tools for optimal data capture performance and efficiency. With the addition of Flutter, Socket’s CaptureSDK delivers a new level of control and adaptability for app developers.

Matthew will dive into an interactive walkthrough demonstrating app creation using Flutter, CaptureSDK, and data capture integration. The webinar will also feature LIVE Q&A throughout to answer questions directly from participants. We look forward to having you join us on May 18th!
