Hookle is built with Flutter but for iOS, it’s currently available on Test Flight, https://www.hookle.net/.
EDIT: I’m including links to 2 published apps on AppStore below,
1. Newsvoice: https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/newsvoice/id1208421834?mt=8
2. Hamilton: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hamilton-the-official-app/id1255231054?mt=8

I’ll edit the answer to add the other 2 links. Please mark it as solved, if your query is attended.

Start Flutter only curates open source Flutter themes and the objective is to provide a quick start to developers and for learning purposes.
We haven’t worked with any real commercial app so we can’t say anything from personal experience but I’m sure that if or when you face any issue with publishing, you’ll find the solution either existing or with the help of community and Flutter team.
You can actually post this concern on Flutter’s subreddit, https://www.reddit.com/r/FlutterDev/. It’s a very active community of Flutter devs so you’ll get answers from different perspectives.

I really appreciate it. I still wanted to ask-do you plan to post applications-starter flutter in the App Store? Are there any difficulties? Perhaps there are some points that should be envisaged? In my opinion – flutter is a very good and promising platform. :)

Thank You. Here I would like to know specifically – what is the some issue? I now have an app for the Android SDK which you need to clone for iOS. Flutter lets me do it,but if I can’t put it on the App Store, it makes no sense.All I need to do this, the Flutter is now. Everything works well on iOS simulator.

Flutter doesn’t have any such incompatibility issue with App Store. If Flutter in its current state fulfills all features of your app, then there shouldn’t be any reason to worry.
In fact, I just found one more app on AppStore built with Flutter, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hamilton-the-official-app/id1255231054?mt=8.

For Flutter Gallery specifically, I’m quoting Seth Ladd’s comment from a Github issue (https://github.com/flutter/flutter/issues/282) similar to your question,


Hi @sunglim , thanks for the question. We’re working through some issues and features for the Gallery app specifically on iOS. Until those issues and features are addressed, we don’t plan to publish to the App Store. However, we’ve pushed the Gallery app to the App Store via TestFlight, to ensure it’s possible.

Thank You. I really like flutter. I would like to understand why,for example, no flutter gallery on the App Store? What restrictions do not allow this? This is a very critical point when choosing a development tool.

No, that’s not true. It’s just that Flutter is still in development so you can’t publish all kinds of apps yet but if the features you need are already there then you can go for it.
Here, I found one that’s published on AppStore, https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/newsvoice/id1208421834?mt=8.

I know that. I wanted to ask about the App Store, not TestFlight. Can it happen that Apple won’t allow you to share flutter apps on the App Store?
