Can I access platform services and APIs like sensors and local storage?

Posted by Andre Scott | Updated on

Yes. Flutter gives developers out-of-the-box access to some platform-specific services and APIs from the operating system. However, we want to avoid the “lowest common denominator” problem with most cross-platform APIs, so we don’t intend to build cross-platform APIs for all native services and APIs.

A number of platform services and APIs have ready-made packages available on pub.dev. Using an existing package is easy.
