What I have tried:

I tried to google info about this with little luck so far.

I assume you've seen this.

Thanks, I was perhaps hoping that someone with cross platform experience could share some insights how ReactNative / Flutter might handle airtag development for both Apple / Android. One stone, two birds =)

Seems Flutter does not have airtag support either - so it would be platform specific development either way

If in doubt, start with the official documents - Google has a basic "startup" tutorial which shoudl work: Write Your First Client Application  |  Over The Air API  |  Google for Developers[^]

Hello, if you have checked the first steps Write Your First Client Application  |  Over The Air API  |  Google for Developers[^] on how to build an Android app and would like to check out cross platform development you can also consider writing a Flutter / React Native app.

However, There is no way to develop cross platform airtag projects. Here is some information related to ReactNative / Flutter:

a) React Native
you can code AirTag features in a React Native application, but it requires some additional steps and libraries. React Native itself does not have built-in support for interacting directly with AirTags, as AirTags communicate using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology.

To integrate AirTag features in a React Native app, you would typically use Native Modules: React Native allows you to write native code (Swift for iOS and Java/Kotlin for Android) and expose it to your JavaScript code.

b) Flutter

Flutter does not have airtag support either - so it would be platform specific development also in this case

Good luck on your next airtag project! =)
