# Flutter web and Google Maps

## Bypass the App Store for your Maps app!

I made an Android app using Flutter and Google Maps and published it to the Google Play Store. Many iPhone users asked for a version for their phones. Building an iOS version and publishing it to the App Store seemed much more complex than building and hosting a web app (and I don’t even own a Mac). So that is what I decided to do. In this post, I will tell you about my experience. In summary, it was more difficult than expected, but I still think I made the right decision, and the iPhone users are happy.

# Three Quick Math Problems

I love these three math problems! The first one requires very little math skill — but it is maybe the most difficult one. The second one only requires basic geometry. For the third one, you need to know elementary algebra.

## Problem 1: The 316 problem

I call this problem “the 316 problem” because 316 is not a solution, but almost! The problem is :

`The 316 problemFind an integer number such that it gets exactly twice as big if you move the last digit first.`

Take 316 for example: If you move the last digit first, you get 631. If you double it, you…

# ML Kit or TensorFlow: Which is best?

You are about to develop a Flutter app with Image Recognition. Which tool should you choose?

This post is a follow-up on my article Build a Dog Camera using Flutter and Tensorflow. The Dog Camera app is similar to the regular Android camera app. But if there is a dog in view, its breed can be displayed. The app was built using TensorFlow. I have now built the same app using ML Kit instead. This post first describes how the new app was built. Then the two approaches are compared.

# Build a Dog Camera using Flutter and Tensorflow

The Dog Camera app is similar to the regular Android camera app. But if there is a dog in view, its breed can be displayed.

When a dog is detected, it gets surrounded by a yellow frame. If the white button is tapped then, a snapshot is taken and saved to the gallery, as with the regular Camera app. But before it is saved, the dog’s breed is written in the image.
