Pros

I liked how their customer service was available whenever I sought their help. Kind explanations were very helpful in addition to their instant replies.
I was very pleased to find a no-coding option to make a simple app. The best part has been whenever I needed support, the virtual chat was immediate and effective.
The customer service went above and beyond to help me when I was super confused about doing all this alone. I wanna thank them for their service because they are totally helpful and amazing.

Pros

I love that you can use a free version that’s extremely capable and buy the paid for version for some extra useful features and integration with other services and software like databases.
It makes the whole process a delight for developers that don't have to care about integrating this tool with some others like builders or version controllers. All is already included here.
Jet Brains makes wonderful IDEs as it is, but IntelliJ IDEA is the best one I've used of theirs and on top of that, its the best IDE for Java that I've used.

Cons

Gets a bit confusing and the fact that we need to pay for images is frustration.
I am skeptical about whether I will use Appy Pie again, mainly because I am ethically opposed to making students pay for a tool that they will only use one time and likely never use again.
This is highly unnerving. As it can have so much of data at risk.

Cons

I commonly have problems with lag if the program has different aspects that make it heavy. Other than that, there’s not much I don’t like.
Sometimes when it lost connection (access token) to github it randomly asks for the password again, without giving proper context.
At this point I don't think there are any features that I think are missing.

Appy Pie Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, it's a good product.

Pros

The no-code feature is a fantastic idea because you can still create the app idea you have even if you have no knowledge of coding. It is also cheaper because you don't have to pay someone t code or build the app for you. You can also get it done faster with the drag and drop feature.

Cons

Some of the settings are a bit limited therefore, limiting what you can do. Persons who can actually code and want to add a feature to make their product stand out might have a challenge in that area.

I have been with them for last 5 months now and have a mix feeling as help is there always but sometime too much time was taken in fixing small things. Over all happy with my app.

Ease of using, multi functions, feature rich software. One can easily create an idea to an app after spending some time learning the platform

Cons

Bit pricy, Some hidden charges their which may surprise you. Tutorials are outdated and confusing.

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with Appy Pie is great! The business problem I solved with Appy Pie is they do the coding for you. I didn't need to code to make an app so it's super easy. I realized that the benefits of using Appy Pie includes less stress. I think coding really is a stressful job so I really find Appy Pie useful.

Pros

The feature that is most impactful is no code because when you use this software, you can make an app even if you're not a programmer. It is easy to use. The integration with my existingbusiness process is easy.

Cons

I think the feature that are missing is advanced option where we can try understanding the underlying coding system to us that has no idea of coding. Though there is no aspects of the product that is hard to use, I think it could improve by a more versatile version like it can be opened on a smart TV to present the idea to audience.

This was able to allow us to connect with our customers on a personal level.

Pros

This software makes creating an app extremely simple. Being able to customize nearly anything on it is not only fun, but it’s a great way to truly represent your brand. I really like the idea that you can test it out with TestFlight on the iPhone before you publish it.

Cons

Honestly, not a lot. I think that it could have just a little bit more of customization, but again, it’s great for a basic app.

Give it a try, at least try the free trial.

Pros

I thought it would be a good idea to give this Software a try because they offered a free trial. I didn't have any specific App in mind that I wanted to create, I was just really curious about how it works. It worked like a dream. I literally built a functioning app in 5 minutes. I was so impressed, i subscribed.

Cons

Really, i can't complain. It does what it says, I just feel it would be good to have more features and options.

Easy to use. Templates are adaptable. Lots of great help for people a click away. I love the look of it and being able to use current website to just add to the template. Also, adding social media within the APP is great.

I am not tech savy but I was able to navigate in the APP although sometimes I got stuck and had to ask for help because I wandered and trying to do something I had no idea what I should have been doing.

BEST OPTION FOR SMALL BUSINESS APP!

I have solved a major problem of customer loss due to COVID. Now my customers are able to shop from home!

Pros

The product is easy to use and affordable! I am always able to get help exactly when I need it at any time day or night! It gives you the opportunity to grow your business and upgrade your product as needed. I love that!

Cons

At first it seemed overwhelming and I was aggravated, but it was because I had no idea what I was doing! I quickly learned so much that I was able to navigate through and make changes that I needed to make. Maybe update some of the instructional videos to make them a little easier to follow for some of us who have no clue whatsoever.

Poor Services

My overall experience was poor. These foreigners act like they know what they are doing but they don't. My app doesn't even work. I've asked to speak to an American and even a Supervisor and Team hung up on me! They can't seem to fix the subscription, in app purchase, so that someone can actually use the app. So obviously your ratings are in fact a lie. I am glad I started with a small idea first because this has allowed me to realize that sometimes paying more means being stress-free.

Pros

Easy to use and a dummy could use the program.

Their inability to make an app workable on the app store and google play. The app doesn't work at all and they lie all the time. Their accent is horrible and they are unable

Hard to use with sparse documentation and weirdly absent features.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have ended up mostly just using the editor page since I can drop code directly in to the page. If I was using the pre-built pages, the tool would be a waste of my time. Also, paying $600 dollars extra a year to remove appy pie branding from the splash page is way too expensive. That should be like a $100 extra charge.

Pros

Ability to use code on the editor page and ease of updating icons and pages without redeploying app.

Cons

Features are weirdly missing. For example, some video types on the video page use the native player while other types launch the website (but only in the app). Videos don't go full screen, but only fill the app frame. You can use the website page to launch external links, but no other page is able to launch a link externally, which is a huge miss. Also, page anchors don't work correctly and, even though the editor page accepts javascript, not all javascript works. The code to jump to an anchor on page-load doesn't work consistently. It's a great idea, but the weird segregation across page features (like deep-linking to other pages only working on some page types) doesn't make sense.
