Customer focused tech

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, Softr is doing the right things in adding features that the community is asking for. Every time I have had a question or needed help with something, the Softr team has been quick to assist with meaningful replies to solve the issue.

Pros

- The best feature is the live read and write to your Airtable database. - Very user friendly - Great customer support

Cons

- the learning curve may be difficult for a newbie. - sometimes autosave gets confused when making updates to your app.

It's THE BEST No-Code Web/App Builder right now!

Reviewed 2 years ago

- I was able to build my site prototype and main website within a week after taking feedback from others. - Ticks all the necessary checkboxes.

Pros

- Product is sadistically simple to use. - The plug n' play content blocks available within the dashboard save a ton of time conceptualising a website experience. - Small thing, but they way CTA buttons just magically adjust to the size of text is a superstar feature. - if you're a marketer or entrepreneur, Softr helps you get your MVP up and running super fast. - Biggest of them all, it reduces dependency on the multiple teams required to build you a website.

Cons

- Now that they've made desktop so easy, begs the question - How CAN THIS HAPPEN FOR MOBILE TOO? Maybe we're asking for too much but if Softr achieves this seamlessness for mobile devices, it would render so many other apps useless! - Maybe consider adding a place where we can source and customise illustrations as well.

Softr

Reviewed 2 years ago

I can't say Softr is the best website builder out there, but at the moment it's the one that best integrates with Airtable. For my use case with landing pages and Airtable and little visual and functional improvisations here and there, it works fine. Softr however recently raised money and I'm sure in the next few months it is going to improve a lot on the platform in terms of functionality and performance.

Pros

The Simplicity of creating a website, deploying, and making updates in real-time. This is all very smooth. I use Softr for making landing pages that are sent to specific user groups in my Airtable. Softr working smoothly with Airtable makes this a piece of cake for me.

Cons

Softr comes with pre-built blocks, and it's impossible to add additional functions to these blocks. You will find yourself improvising a lot with blocks to make up for its shortcomings in functionality. You may want to add a button within a "Hero block" to have two buttons leading to different parts of your website, but the block has one button and that's it! There's no way around it basically! It can be very frustrating but I guess that comes with most site-builders.

A good balance between functionality and ease of use in a no-code product

Reviewed 2 years ago

I got a fully function and relatively complex user front-end for our Airtable data fully built and configured within a couple days with zero coding, that's just incredible!

Pros

Flexible enough to design almost all front end interfaces you'd need for your data to be accessed by external users

Cons

There are still few rough edges, but as it's a new and fast growing company I expect they will be ironed out

Very good product to quickly create apps and website

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great software to work with, very good value/price ratio. Very easy to learn and integrate with other tools (Airtable, Stripe). The support team is super reactive and helpful.

Pros

It helped me build an MVP in a matter of hours, I only invested a small amount of time. The native Airtable integration is a killer feature compared to many other website/app builders. The user management is awesome as well, as this really gave me the opportunity to create a different app for my 2 types of users.

Cons

There could be improvement on the UX of the product, as some times this not really easy to navigate into the different pages of your app.

The Perfect No Code Front End for your No Code Back End!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall this is the best No Code Front end website builder for your No Code Airtable Backend.

Pros

If you remove the fact that it solves the number one problem I have with AirTable, and that my entire trucking company uses the website I built with Softr.io, the team at Softr.io has insanely rapid new feature/functionality deployment and borderline instant customer service response time.

Cons

When I first started using Softr.io it was very limited on functionality, however the whole No Code movement was new and so there was lack of support and resources on all software. Even though there were other option to choose from, I'm glad I went with Softr.io because they have really started develop fantastic tools.

The best and most convenient tool for making tools

Reviewed a year ago

One of the most straightforward no-code solutions I have found that is tidy, professional, and fits my needs out of the many I have tested. Creating unique tools and procedures is a great way to avoid utilising several, pricey off-the-shelf tools. I don't need to write any code in order to build specialised user portals for my customers.

Pros

In roughly the same amount of time it takes to watch a YouTube tutorial from another no-code provider, Softr gives you the ability to quickly put together an application. With many advanced use cases, they are quick to deploy, simple to use, and still have a good learning curve. In terms of the support I've received on Softr, despite using hundreds of SaaS platforms and products, none of them even come close. If you're working with Airtable and want to create a front-end connection to it, look no further than Softr.

Cons

Several of the design components don't function properly. Several of the blocks I utilise for the desktop version are not particularly well optimised for mobile. There are certain functional and aesthetic restrictions, but in the little time I've been using it, they've incorporated regular updates and enhancements to make the user experience better.

Fast MVP development with Airtable (display & editing user information)

Reviewed 2 years ago

well, It saved my life as I need to get a new version of an existing app within a couple of weeks! And we did it! It's worth mentionning customer support (thanks [SENSITIVE CONTENT]!): (1) extremely reactive: within minutes, one hour at most, (2) and always very helpful, sometimes even hands on fixing issues I run into. Really thank u!!

Pros

Softr works hand in hand with Airtable. With these tools combined we build product that allows clients to submit requests online and follow their status in real time. It enable effortlessly to enable editing on part (or all) of the data in Airtable, and to manage access to that data.

Cons

Softr works with predesigned blocks. So implementing your product will be very fast but a bit constrained by the existing design. You can however rely on custom code to add a few blocks or features as needed.

Incredible site builder and front-end for your Airtable data!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've seen a lot of no-code tools. Softr gives me the best of both worlds... It's a drag-and-drop builder with built-in templates for each section of a website (similar to a customizable Wordpress template), yet all the capabilities for displaying data in multiple ways are incredible.

Pros

The design capabilities are incredible. I'm usually a 'template' girl, but the drag-and-drop blocks are so easy-to-use and versatile. The design capabilities are endless! There are so many ways to display data - it's incredible. This is my tool from now on and will eventually replace Wordpress for me.

Cons

There was a learning curve for me using and configuring Airtable so I could display the data... (configuring columns and rows or creating formulas to turn 1 row into multiple columns, so I could display data properly.) I'm looking forward to upgraded forms with conditional logic and upgraded tables.

A versatile, flexible & reliable tool to create a startup in few minutes.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Softr is built on a database: Airtable. If you like excel sheets and relational tables, you can build powerful apps and processes. That's exactly what we did on Bookzdoctor Inc. We track clients' performance, checking, and have been rising very high in SEO. The flexibility and the powerful blocks with various designs allow you to create what is in your mind, without any technical barrier. The Team behind Softr, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and others are very down to earth, and always willing to help.

The easiest no-code tool to use with the best customer service.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Very easy to use + the customer service is alaways here for you, extremely fast to answer. The more you ask for help the more you want to give them feedback, lol.

Pros

Extremely simple to use + the customer service is excellent + excellent product management (every new feature is absolutely clean and perfect. There are new features every month)

Cons

For now, softr is limited to build real web apps. But it will change within 2 months with CRUD Operations release. The graphic design possibilities are also limited but this is not a problem, as the final result always looks beautiful (i think it's impossible to create ugly products with softr)

First time app developer, I love Softr

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Softr is intuitive for a non-coder to be able to get up and running quickly with an app that can be customized. The integration with Airtable is amazing. I have lots of experience with building a Squarespace site, which allowed me to be familiar with blocks and adding little bits of custom code, which was helpful but not necessary. Softr has opened up a world of possibilities for creating a front-end interface for my team, my clients, and my partners. It will take time to build it all out but the end product I envision will provide my company with improved tools with a designed interface instead of spreadsheets and databases.

Cons

The limitation to Softr is the speed with which they are able to create new blocks that can be used to drop in. The Softr team works incredibly fast so it's hard to complain, but more blocks would be helpful for continued customization of my own tools and apps.

I created an employee portal for my custom Airtable CRM in just a few hours. Super easy to use and intuitive. Excellent customer service went above and beyond when I got stuck. My staff can now easily edit the complete Airtable record from an easy to navigate front-end.

Cons

I had trouble getting the user edit feature to work, but that was because I hadn't set permissions in the settings! The Softr support team helped me sort it out via chat.

Best tool to get going in the no-code space

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is hands-down the easiest way to start and test a marketplace.

Pros

I absolutely love the way Softr can so easily take an Airtable sheet and turn it into a beautiful web app. The software is so cool, so easy to use, and I'm hooked. I absolutely love it.

Cons

My only gripe is that the design of many of the app-design flows is basic from a UI standpoint, so either one of two things will happen. One, I will eventually switch to something more robust like a Webflow or Bubble (unlikely), or two, the Softr team will continue to upgrade their product and help with the design layouts. New blocks are being added all the time so I'm curious what will be in the future.

Softr makes nocode accessible

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I literally created an account on softr on a whim and within 10 minutes I was already building my web app. The templates they provide (complete with an Airtable base) make it really easy to get started right away. I think this was the single biggest reason why I was able to progress so quickly on this platform. Their customer support agent [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been amazing! Although the platform is very intuitive, when I did get stuck, he's helped me solve all my problems.

Cons

So far, nothing, but I've only used Softr and Airtable. I haven't used the other integrations yet.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

We were impressed with how well Softr meets our needs. We needed to build a prototype of a community, however with quite unique features. The integration with Airtable is great and gives us a lot of flexibility to show data in different formats to different types of users.

Cons

We would love a bit more flexibility in the frontend, especially in how to display elements. We would also love the possibility to select multiple elements on a page to change e.g. the visibility (for instance, in some cases we need only certain elements on a page to be visible to non-logged in users).

We are setting up several tools, so businesses can first find out if the app or website will work. Because you are able to set this up quite quick, the cost for this is low for companies.

You are able to set up websites and apps within a day. It really looks very nice The real data retrieval from Airtable is great. The competitors are not able to at the moment.
