Lame customer service

2019-11-13

It’s constantly out of date. The owners have to update it and they don’t. No mobility function for responding to customers.

Pros

Easy to use. No experience necessary.

Cons

I’ve had this app for 2 years and won’t be signing for a third. Also, for being “mobile,” there is no option to get into the app while mobile.

Too expensive, never updates your app to latest phones or software.

2018-06-27

None.

Pros

The software is out of date, the features are stale, the customer service is terrible, and they never update the app framework to be compatible with the latest devices.

Cons

This new company totally neutered development and has charged the same bloated price for the past three years without any updates or new features.

Brilliant

2018-11-24

Businesses are easily communicated with their customers with their push notification service, easy to use loyalty programs and the app builder is easy to use.

Pros

My customers love their apps.

Cons

Like anything, it's technology and always things can get better. Maybe you can choose the tiered group in editor to not all show and have a plus sign to show them all.

On first sight of the App Builder it was a no brainer for me to subscribe.

2018-07-12

Pros

I'm a creative person, concepts and design, not a web developer and the only code I understand is dress code, so for a creative like me to be able to build Apps says it all.

Cons

It is a big positive tool to have for my clients, so hopefully the recent restrictions are the last.

Don’t use them! Poor customer service

2019-06-06

The submission process could be a more informative prior to purchasing. The interface doesn’t show you if you have multiple accounts and if it does it’s hidden.

Pros

Functionality until you have to publish the app

Cons

The Apple submission process can be cumbersome if you aren’t on a Mac. The customer service department is very cut throat if you make a billing mistake.

Sadly, You will Need to Look Elsewhere...

2017-11-20

good marketing material

Pros

I loved the user friendly app platform. I liked that I was able to get a hold of someone overtime I called.

Cons

I submitted my app for publishing on September 1st. 1 week later, they sent me an email saying that they are no longer publishing to Apple Store or Google Play, but instead they are now doing PWA's (Progressive Web Apps) which will be available at the end of September.

Links

2018-10-09

Pros

It is a great and easy way of having a app.

Cons

The only thing is that there is no way of adding a phone number or web link so people can press it to take them straight there.

Support Like No Other

2018-09-03

I’m currently a resseler, and the support I get is like no other.

Pros

AppInstitute has the most features of all template app builders out there, catering everybody’s needs.

Cons

The only thing I think is missing with this software is that they have not got 24/7 chat support, otherwise there’s nothing to moan about.

This is an easy to use app for beginners

2017-12-11

Pros

This is an easy to use app for beginners and best part of this you don't need to have core knowledge about coding.

Cons

I don't find any problems with the app so far. To be honest I really can't find any problems in using this app.

Bad Customer Service

2016-07-22

It's a cool idea, but unfortunately the GUI is clunky and doesn't produce a high-quality application. Also, when cancelling with 30 days notice they still charged me an extra month and refuse to refund.

This company is a scam. Apps are useless and customer service is by email only. BUYER BEWARE

2017-10-17

I can't tell you anything I like because I don't understand how it can be considered an app. They took random pieces of information from my company's website and Facebook and threw together something that doesn't work at all for my clients.

Cons

This company purchased my old app company, APPSME, and said my app would be the same.
