    Pros
    Excellent Cloud access to innovative technologies and great integration with third-party solutions and also for support multiple languages.
    If you are using other elements of the Zoho suite there are good integrations and Creator would be great for adding functionality for the likes of first-line workers in the organisation.
    We have had great success with creator and it has allowed us to come up with our own solution to various issues.
    Cons
    For most users that have no coding background it this can provide limits as DELGUGE can be difficult to learn.
    Form loading goes from seconds to minutes. These are serious problems that made me wish I had stuck to using Zoho strictly as a prototype.
    The limited features working offline or in patchy network areas was a huge problem.

    Building applications without code.

    Reviewed a year ago

    It has helped me to make tests or design paths of applications at a surprising speed, it is suitable for all types of developers: from a junior to a senior.

    Pros

    Its most outstanding functionality is the possibility of creating applications without the need to know programming through codes, thus streamlining processes and adapting to the needs of each company.

    Cons

    It is a good application but it has difficulties in the construction of complex software, besides the security measures required may not be those given by Zoho.

    Good App Making Functionality

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    We needed unique software, and was able to make it happen with Zoho Creator, and integrate it with the other essential apps on their platform. Very happy.

    Pros

    Lots of great and intuitive ways to increase productivity within the Zoho suite of products. If Zoho doesn't provide an app to do what you want, there's a good chance you can use this toolset to make one. It breaks down the functionality used within Zoho, and gives you the customization and power you need to make things work for you.

    Cons

    I would like some more accessible and robust documentation for some of the options, but was otherwise pleased with the generally intuitive nature.

    Great for Prototyping Application, Too Slow for Business Use

    Reviewed 9 years ago

    I started using Zoho as a quick way to prototype an application. It took a few weeks to build an application that would have taken months in .Net and SQL. My customer loved the application and wanted to use the prototype right off the bat. The service generally runs fast, however in the afternoons here in the US, the service can grind to a halt. Form loading goes from seconds to minutes. These are serious problems that made me wish I had stuck to using Zoho strictly as a prototype.

    Pros

    Great interface, email and text integration.

    Cons

    1) Speed is too slow for "real" business use. 2) On premise application is forever stuck in Beta, there is no choice but to use Zoho's slow servers. 3) URL and mobile app customization is not possible.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for giving Zoho Creator a try. We believe the issue faced by you could be specific to your Zoho Creator application as we haven't had reports of latency from other users. The sluggishness experienced by you in accessing Creator Form especially during a certain time of the day is something that we would like to look into further. Could you email form details of your Zoho Creator app to presales@zohocreator.com/support@zohocreator.com, please? The team over here would like to ascertain the reasons for the latency issue and revert with possible solutions, if any. Ahmed Zoho Creator

    Value for money product!

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    I like customizable data management and adding data to dashboards and customizing them according to our needs. It doesn't need many codings, however, sometimes there might be glitches which can be sorted out with some help from coders

    Cons

    The price is a little bit costly however they'll provide a discount for non-profits. So it really helps.

    Perfect for In-House Custom Database Needs!

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    User Interface design is pretty straightforward - drag and drop. The Deluge scripting language is really easy to pick up and a lot of the problems you'll need to solve have already been addressed with zoho-specific solutions.

    Cons

    You are absolutely locked into the interface design aspects for reports and input forms. Nothing is going to look pretty. Any kind of custom formatting is going to require some hacking and testing before you come up with a workable solution.
