Pros
I loved it, it takes time to learn, but what doesn't. It allows you to create whatever you want without a single line of code. And the learning part, they got you covered with a tutorial library that will facilitare your understanding of the tools.

Cons
The things that I disliked were because I didn't understand them, just have patience and you'll learn how to use each tools, even a person like me with no previous tech or coding training can manage.

Perfect tool for non-coders who want to build complex apps

Review Source: Capterra

There's a steep learning curve, but it's WAY worth it. To set yourself up for success, be sure that you've figured out what you want your core design elements to look like. I was discouraged at first when I dragged in some elements and it looked like crap. But then I put in my brand colors, decided what size I wanted my buttons, etc. Now, things look good by default and just need to have the spacing adjusted. Putting in the effort to make my components look good up front made it easier to be excited about the process (=put in more development hours). Also, you MUST use the forums at forums.appgyver.com. It's such a sophisticated tool that you simply won't be able to figure out every nuance on your own. When you have a question, first search the forums to see if someone else already came up with an answer. If not, then post the question. The project manager for Composer is the primary responder, and he or one of the team members usually respond within 24 hours. (Don't hesitate to post a reply on a thread if you didn't get a reply--squeaky wheel gets the grease.) My project is so complex that even with AppGyver, I have paid a developer $20K to build out the back end and insert some custom code into AppGyver to handle the data accordingly. Without AppGyver, this project would have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars and simply not been possible for me. But because I could do the majority of the work myself--and then iterate quickly--I actually have a shot at success.

Pros
Before a colleague recommended AppGyver, I had looked into more than 50 chat bots and tried to use a half dozen no-code app builders. AppGyver is the only tool I came across that was sophisticated enough to do what I needed and had a pleasant user interface so I wouldn't want to kill myself at the end of every day. (I'm super glad that was one of my prerequisites because who knows how many hundreds of hours I have spent in AppGyver. If it had been as bad as the others, I would have given up on the project a long time ago.)

Cons
There is a bug that makes it so some spinners don't disappear in the final build files--works fine in the previewer, but not the app itself. I lost the better part of a week to trying to work around that. Rumor has it that's a React Native bug though, and not an AppGyver bug, though rumor also has it that the next AppGyver update might have a way to work around that. Otherwise, I couldn't be more pleased.

AppGyver, no-code approach for real mobile apps

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-09-25
Review Source: Capterra

There is an initial learning curv e, but if you go in understanding that, you can start small and then use their forum, tutorials and documentation to quickly build a base of knowledge that enables you to build a real mobile app. If you think AppGyver is missing a feature or capability, take a moment to check out their forum, docs, and youtube channel. Almost everytime I have found what I need. If you don't they have the ability to submit new feature requests and vote on them.

Pros
The breadth of features and capabilities that AppGyver has was what won me over. Most of the no-code/low-code platforms don't have a rich set of capabilities. AppGyver has sensor data and device functionality that you can access for your mobile app (i.e. accelerometer, gyroscope, geolocation, camera, files, photo library,...). These are the things you need to create a mobile app that meets a user's expectations. Without those features you are just building a web app, at best. The AppGyver team (and their community) is very responsive and helpful. You definitely have to look into Mevi's Youtube tutorials!

Cons
More control over the fine-tuning of the UI, such as more control over the screen transition animations would be nice. AppGyver has transition animations that are used by default, but having choices will be great when that becomes available.

JAS is now in the mobile world thanks to AppGyver

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

AppGyver, their toolset and team were able to bring JAS to the mobile world. Composer2 is extremely simple and intuitive to use and the learning curve really short. The support provided by the company at all levels made and continue making the difference. Their technology is improving everyday and the team is committed to give the best to their customers. I am happy to use the tool and to have a good relationship with the company. JAS forwarding is just happy to use their services. In less than a week JAS was able to design , develop and deploy the two applications, the Google and Apple approval took longer than the actual development. To summarize in a few words, efficiency, perfection, success.

Pros
Easy to use, intuitive, constantly improving, good support team, price competitive.
