The Flutter News Toolkit is a free, prebuilt app template to accelerate application development for news publishers and other content providers who want to reach mobile users without having to design an app from scratch. It includes everything you need to build an article-centric app, with navigation and search, authentication, ad integrations, notifications, profiles and subscriptions, while incorporating best practices from Google News Initiative’s research.
