One of my favorite nocode solutions

5.0 11 months ago

Comments: I am an educator at an engineering school and I have already tested and continue testing numerous no code and low code tools, with the objective of selecting some for use in the classroom, for the subjects of entrepreneurship and information systems. In the latter case, even for engineering and computer science students, who must learn to code, the use of tools in code allows them to develop complete systems projects providing understanding of systems architecture, design and analysis.

Pros:

Adalo manages to unite two important things: being simple without being simplistic. The tool stands out especially for the way the so-called components are manipulated, to go assembling applications/systems as if they were Lego.

Cons:

It's a bit unfair to talk bad about Adalo, because it's my second favorite nocode solution at the moment, but my favorite solution has something that Adalo doesn't: a clear distinction of frontend, backend and data: that is, providing in code but keeping the system architecture.

Adalo

4.0 5 months ago

Comments: Overall I was pleased with how Adalo helped me get started with my project, as it grew I exported the app data to Bubble, where I currently run my project. I still frequently use Adalo to test out new ideas, because it is simply the easiest to use custom app builder.

Pros:

Adalo is by far the easiest app builder I have used so far. You don't have to learn to code and you don't need to know a lot of web design to get started. They have a lot of pre-built components in their library that gets you up and running in no time. It helped me build a prototype for my business idea in less than 48 hours. Anyone can signup and start creating within minutes of watching a few YouTube tutorial videos

Cons:

Adalo is ideal when testing! However, as you grow, your app really slows down and frustrates both you and your users. It struggles to fetch list data, images, and a lot of information a user might request when using the app. For my use case, there were a lot of lists and searches done by users, and their experience got worse with each new user.

A fantastic programing softvare for beginners

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: This software can be useful for beginner developers, because there is no need for programming knowledge, only our imagination and time are enough to develop an application. And what's more, we don't even have to install it on our computer, because the entire program is available online! I can only recommend!

Pros:

It is very beneficial that this software does not require any programming knowledge, yet brilliant applications can be developed with it. This helps novice app developers and other users to use it in a simple yet hassle-free way. No bugs or bad lines of code because there are no bugs!

Cons:

The disadvantage of this software is that many functions are only available for a fee, which makes it difficult for those who do not want to invest money in their small application projects.

I really wanted to like Adalo

3.0 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

I must say that Adalo is one of the first true no-code app development companies I've ever considered. I've used Adalo for several months and found that this company really wanted to pioneer no-code development. They have large library of drag-and-drop components, allows you to easily link pages, and even integrates with other API.

Cons:

Far too complicated to use. I consider myself someone that can easily navigate many sites and software. However, it's just not a method of hierarchy that I'm used to. They also charge far too much monthly, caps "monthly app actions", charge a premium for functions many advanced apps rely on (even before acquiring any users). There should be a sandbox option to build your app entirely then charging once the app has been published on Google Play or the App Store.

What I experienced with Adalo

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

It is very easy to use. No coding skills required. Very useful to capture leads. It loads quickly, which makes the user spend more time with it

Cons:

It has very limited features and a can suspect that it is meant only to advertise to him or her
