Bubble: Versatile, Easy to get the hang of, with helpful pre-built templates

5.0 last year

Comments: Overall I found this simple and yet powerful to use. It was impressive what we could do with the system. In fact we chose to develop the system we wanted vs. buying into a fully-pre-built sass application that would have cost us lots more per month. I think it has been a good investment.

Pros:

In a few months we were able to design and implement a freelancer marketplace with user management, signups, password management, workflows etc. We had no prior experience of the product and yet it was easy to grasp the concepts and start building things in a matter of minutes. The process was made easier by virtue of an app marketplace where we could purchase a template that did some/or most of what we wanted. From there it was straightforward to customise it to be the way we wanted it. If we'd kept it the same we could probably have launched in a matter of days, but we wanted to make some changes to suit our needs. It was surprising to me just how versatile a development environment this is. Sometimes these no-code environments can restrict you by making you follow their model - but Bubble seems to have a lot of functionality without making it mind-bogglingly complicated. I suspect you can make almost any kind of website or web application you want with this tool.

Cons:

The responsive page design is a bit hard to get your head around at first, and sometimes you get slightly erratic results. I believe they are making some improvements to this in a coming release, but it is useable even now.

Thanks so much for your review; we're glad to hear that you've been able to build your app with Bubble! We are indeed working on a revamp of our Responsive engine, and are hoping to get that live to users soon. :)

Comments: Amazing! Bubble helped build Brounce, a marketplace idea I had and still runs on Bubble, along with other services I have integrated mainly through Zapier. I love the fact that I run everything without code and Bubble is right at the center of all the action.

Pros:

Bubble helps you get started in record time all without writing any code. After a few lessons designed by Bubble. You can start building your project with drag and drop and really smart workflows in no time and deploy to early adopters and grow from there. Whatever your project needs, believe me, you can absolutely build in on Bubble. Bubble integratees with a multitude of their party services with plugins and with Zapier.

Cons:

Bubble does not allow exporting the source code of your project! If this is super important to you, then Bubble might not be the best option to run your project long-term. You can export your data but not the source code. it's a bummer because down the line you might want to have better control of your app and you need access to the code, but you can't, and that's just it!

Hi there, thank you very much for your review! So glad to hear you've been having a positive experience with Bubble - we truly appreciate hearing your thoughts regarding your time building. Due to the unique nature of our platform, Bubble apps can only be run on Bubble at this time. While it's possible to export your application as JSON, it is not possible to export as code. We sincerely value your feedback and kind words - please don't hesitate to reach out at [email protected] if you have any further questions/concerns/feedback and our team would be more than happy to assist!

Difficult to use

2.0 2 months ago

Comments: Way to improve and until they can make it easier for everyone, their platform is very challenging in terms of getting even a small application up and running!

Pros:

Software can enable someone without technical background or coding experience like me to build web pages easily!

Cons:

When adding features and functionalities to my web pages, I found it to be so hard and complicated - tools provided by the platform are difficult to use. I spared hours to read through their material and watch their videos, but those material are so poor and unhelpful!

Idea to MVP in 5 weeks! Great for start-ups with no tech co-founders

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: A great starter-tool to experiment with an idea for a micro SaaS product. Would not recommend for complex SaaS platform say for Blockchain or Industrial IoT

Pros:

Designing the UI/UX on figma and then simply importing it into Bubble is certainly the most developer-friendly feature I've come across. Apart from this, creating complex workflows with visual programming and drag & drop functions saves significant time and eliminates all the barriers to developing a web application.

Cons:

Bubble is still in its nascent stages, so integrations and API calls are glitchy and lagging. It would have been much better if Adobe suite of products could be simply imported just like Figma. When importing an illustrator file, the format/palette all corrupts leading to a situation where you are forced to create all the UI again on bubble.

Bubble is amazing

5.0 last year

Comments: Incredible

Pros:

Deploy applications and test your mvp in a matter of weeks at minimal cost. Scale a viable solution to production in a click and run your app without the overhead of a dev team.

Cons:

Responsiveness can be a burden at times, but if you think out your build before hand (mobile vs. desktop) it's definitely workable.

Hello Marcus, Thanks for your kind review! Our team is actually working on revamping our responsive editor to make it more intuitive, and we hope that will resolve some of the issues our users have previously reported with the engine. We look forward to seeing what you build!
