Pros

I would not want to go into details but WaveMaker is a great tool if you are interested in creating great applications. It is affordable and their customer services team is amazing.
I am particularly impressed by your support, which is quick and friendly. I am pleased with the entire team.
But so far it seems to be one of the best. It is quite easy to use and the tutorial was helpful.

Pros

Platform is not flawless but it's the best low code platform from which I have had a chance to try with many options and powerful set of customizable components.
The software is a low code solution helping development cycles being 6 - 10 times faster. What i like is that we are able to minimize coding thanks to the visual modeller that ships with the solution.
Awesome platform for creating great (mobile) applications.

Cons

I do not understand why the claimed market leaders OutSystems and Mendix charge so much where as WaveMaker charges only 10% of OutSystems and Mendix.
In the beginning the price and available features were odd. For nearly $10,000 per year you could acquire a Wavemaker license for ONE app.
Developer licence no longer available, $24k per year per application.

Cons

Also mendix academy courses have errors which makes it hard to train newcomers in the technology.
Mendix is a licensed system which make it inaccessible for smaller budgets. Some versions contain annoying bugs.
The mobile app deployment system through PhoneGap is confusing. Native themes are visually slightly outdated.

WaveMaker

The most affordable and capable platform compared to market leaders in RAD space.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

We were tasked with creating some internal applications for our firm, we have tried out many platforms like OutSystems and Mendix which proved to too costly and some tools like KissFlow and Zoho Creator which are no where near the capabilities offered by WaveMaker. There are a lot of other tools which claim that they are alternatives to WaveMaker but that is far from truth. WaveMaker offers a variety...

Cons

There is very little you can think of when you are paying a very small amount. WaveMaker is easily the most affordable platform which has so many capabilities. I do not understand why the claimed market leaders OutSystems and Mendix charge so much where as WaveMaker charges only 10% of OutSystems and Mendix. WaveMaker offers great freedom to move your applications out of their platform but OutSystems and Mendix do not allow users to move application away from their platform. WaveMaker is a great tool but I fail to understand why this is not so popular.

Glad I choose Wavemaker

Reviewed 8 years ago

I've evaluated a lot of RAD tools including Mendix, Outsystems, BettyBlocks and I have been very pleased to have choosen Wavemaker . They demonstrate a committment to constantly improving the product. If there is a problem they are ready to help you overcome. Their support is getting better and better and the tool is really maturing. I have been able to build a 1st class application for my customer because of Wavemaker.
