“Anyone interested in developing Flutter applications for Android or iOS should have a copy of this book on their desk.” – Amazon 5* Review Lauded as the ‘Flutter bible’ for new and experienced mobile app developers, this recipe-based guide will teach you the best practices for robust app development, as well as how to solve cross-platform development issues. From setting up and customizing your development environment to error handling and debugging, The Flutter Cookbook covers the how-tos as well as the principles behind them. As you progress, the recipes in this book will get you up to speed with the main tasks involved in app development, such as user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design, API design, and creating animations. Later chapters will focus on routing, retrieving data from web services, and persisting data locally. A dedicated section also covers Firebase and its machine learning capabilities. The last chapter is specifically designed to help you create apps for the web and desktop (Windows, Mac, and Linux).

Google Analytics for Firebase can give you invaluable information on how your users behave in your app. The great news is that when using Firebase, if you enable Analytics, several statistics are generated automatically for you. These are called Default Events and include logging errors, sessions (when your app starts), notifications, and several others.

If you get to the Analytics dashboard from the Firebase console, you can see a lot of information about your app and its users, without any action on your part.


It may require up to 24 hours before seeing an event logged in the Analytics dashboard. Use DebugView to see data in real time.
