Pros

I loved the fact that i had so many features available in one environment and each one of them worked perfectly fine. The key word is Customizability.
They do excellent software, excellent customer support and excellent patching-keeping the product up to date. You will never be disappointed to go with them.
The ease of use and the go to for help on topics are very helpful. This allows to set it up faster, and they have good training and support.

Pros

The ease of use with the dev tools is amazing. As long as you understand basic logic flow of programming, you can build an app without any familiarity with native mobile technology.
Great product with great potential and superior customer service.
Without coding anything you can visually create powerful native mobile apps. Great for fast prototyping application screens.

Cons

But the worst part is the support is extremely poor and unhelpful.
There are some minor UI inconsistencies between tabs that were weird to figure out (only at first) and the current knowledgebase is somewhat minimal.
The process to configure and distribute apps is lengthy, time consuming and confusing at the beginning.

Cons

As with any drag and drop (it isn't purely drag and drop) service I am limited to the modules/plugins that are integrated currently.
Some build errors are not explained therefore have to spend a lot of time figuring what caused them.
Limited barrier to entry - cost. I did not have to hire a programmer (or two programmers) to design and code the application in the various development environments (xcode + Android Studio).

Great product with great potential and superior customer service

Reviewed 5 years ago

Rapid mobile development that integrates with any backend.

Pros

I am a python guy not swift or java. Dropsource helps me deliver a full package to my clients and myself without having to onboard another developer. Saving clients money and headaches for myself. The api integration is the best there is, as long as your api is up to snuff with swagger spec then it can be integrated very easily with your mobile app. I have built apps in swift, obj-c, and java in the past but won't any more thats for sure.

Cons

As with any drag and drop (it isn't purely drag and drop) service I am limited to the modules/plugins that are integrated currently. This currently isn't a deal breaker for me because you have access to the full source code so if I needed add something that Dropsource doesn't have then it still cuts down on time needed for additional code.

Good Mobile Development Platform

Reviewed 4 years ago

Quick and light mobile app development and prototyping.

Pros

Without coding anything you can visually create powerful native mobile apps. Great for fast prototyping application screens. Makes front end development easy.

Cons

Web based makes it somewhat limited and lacking certain features for complicated apps most things you need to develop on the backend APi.

Working with the Dropsource team and product has been, easy, productive and generated the results.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Limited barrier to entry - cost. I did not have to hire a programmer (or two programmers) to design and code the application in the various development environments (xcode + Android Studio). Speed to Market. I was able to very quickly iterate on design and functionality in the Dropsource platform and test almost immediately on my hardware or via their web interface.

Pros

Developing a cross-platform mobile app (Android + iOS) did not require me to learn xcode and Android studio in depth to get a minimum viable product. A common interface for developing screens, an infrastructure for testing without having to always download and compile to test on a physical device increased time to market and productivity. The Dropsource team was always there (including nights and weekends) to assist with any questions.

Cons

I had the opportunity to work with the Dropsource team as a beta customer - so I, along with the team, experienced some of the growing pains as the product matured. There were some aspects of how the product was implemented or behaved that were either not intuitive and/or not well documented. However, the Dropsource team was always available ready to answer questions or address platform issues. Documentation of features has improved tremendously as Dropsource has moved from beta to production.

Dropsource really makes developing apps easy and fun. For both platforms: Android & iOS

Reviewed 5 years ago

Finished and delivered 4 apps in a month time.

Pros

The fact that apps can be made for both platforms while maintaining the same interface and common features like device variables.

Cons

The fact that it is web based makes it sometimes a little limiting. There should be dedicated apps for both macOS and Windows.

W e would never had a mobile solution if it wasn't for the ease and accessibility of Dropsource.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Dropsource helped us develop and deliver a mobile companion app to our web presence, opening our selves up to a larger number of customers.

Pros

It's all web based so in this era of software as a solution it fits right in with our portfolio of tools and solutions.

Cons

Dropsource lacks some WYSIWYG elements that we have gotten used to with local based tools. It's all minor and with some practice we were able to get the results we were looking for.

Dropsource is the ideal tool for non-technical entrepreneurs & dabblers to develop software

Reviewed 5 years ago

With Dropsource I can develop my mobile app. Without Dropsource, I cannot. Consider the value of that to an entrepreneur. That's the benefit it gives me. :)

Pros

The drag and drop editor. 1. It depicts in a visual menu all available elements. For someone without a Computer Science degree or 4 years working as a front end developer, the time saving this provides is tremendous. You also are exposed to elements you didn't know you had a use for, yielding design improvements. 2. The drag and drop editor gives you precise control over how each element is depicted in the UI.

Cons

Dropsource charges a fair price for an incredible, unique product. My use case is that I'm a user who's using Dropsource to learn how to code as it's my primary tool and I need to build my skill. One difficulty I face is that learning how things work (getting my head around APIs, Databases, UI design, UX design, process workflows, and wireframes) is all mostly concurrent -- and I pay for my access to Dropsource all the while. It's a fair price, and abundantly worth it, but due to how long it takes me to "learn and do", the bills do stack up. The solution is to stick it out, accumulate the necessary knowledge, and get quicker.

Dropsource Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

I love the platform. It's one of the most innovative development tools rolled out since Microsoft's Visual Studio. The support is always solid and the assistance with build prep is tremendous. This product can only get better. I think Dropsource will corner the market overtime as long as they continue the push forward with feature roll outs.

Pros

The ease of use with the dev tools is amazing. As long as you understand basic logic flow of programming, you can build an app without any familiarity with native mobile technology. It's really quite amazing.

Cons

For more experienced developers, there is still a ton of functionality needed which at this time is still not available, such as dynamic cell resizing in collection views, video uploading, UI position locking, and undo functionality to name a few. Hopefully these things will come in time.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review Chris. We're glad Dropsource has been helpful for you. We also appreciate all the valuable feedback you provide through our support channels and to our product team. Thank you for being a valued community member.

Dropsource

The quickest way to get an app into a prototype stage without prior mobile dev experience.

Reviewed 5 years ago

It makes it easy to prototype ideas and applications for clients and build production ready apps.

Pros

It provides not only the skeleton but puts meat on the bones so I can quickly build a truly native app. What attracted me to Drop Source was the fact that I could download the source code for the app (Swift for iOS, Java for Android), allowing me to inspect the code, debug, and use that as the base for a fully customized app down the road. The next most important feature for me is that I can access...

Cons

At the time that I'm writing this, they're just coming out of beta. As for cons, you can find yourself doing a lot of clicking to set various settings -- especially when dealing with API calls and event handling. But, that is the nature of visual designers and is to be expected. Beyond that, Drop Source has a lot of the "basics" covered when it comes to SDK coverage, but you'll want to make sure the features they offer meet your use case. Again, they are just coming out of beta and a number of features are on their road map.
