READ GUIDE

When considering a no-code tool, we always recommend taking 4 key factors into account:

Ease of use. How easy is it for a non-technical person with no coding skills to use this tool to make apps? Is there a big learning curve? Can someone who has a basic grasp of Microsoft Office also get a grasp of this tool? Or does it require a lot of up-front training? This is perhaps the most important factor to consider.

Flexibility. How much flexibility does this tool have in terms of what you can build? Can it handle complex decision-making behind the scenes and allow you to bring any app idea to life without any coding at all?

We award extra points here for tools which allow you to integrate with other tools for extra functionality, or let you add your own custom code. Consider whether or not all of your desired functionality is supported by a tool before you use it.

Design freedom. Does the tool give you full freedom to bring a design to life? Not all no-code tools have complete flexibility. Remember, this can be a double-edged sword. If you're not confident in your design abilities, you may wish to pick a tool with less design freedom, as often these tools will set beautiful defaults for you.

Glide is a great example of this. You can customise the branding colours and the order of components, but Glide ensures your design stays looking like a proper app appropriate for either the iOS or Android platform.

Cost-effectiveness. Simply, how affordable is this tool? Remember, this can get complex. Some tools will start with a trial while you build, but charge you to publish your app live. Other tools have specific limits, such as a certain number of records in your database or not being able to integrate other tools into your app without paying extra. As long as you can afford the lower tier plans and have a solid monetisation for your app, don't worry too much about scaling or long term costs as often you'll have income in future to supplement these.

Remember: A low score in any one category does not mean the tool is bad. For example, a tool with a high ease of use, but low flexibility and design freedom could simply indicate that this tool is incredible easy to use and perfect for a beginner. It could also mean the tool is focused on being the best tool on the market for a very specific type of app, like a portal or marketplace.

In my line of work (reviewing tools), it's important not to play favourites - But Adalo really is, hands-down, my favourite NoCode tool.

If you're super-new to NoCode, Adalo does have a bit of a learning curve, and it's certainly not the cheapest app builder either - But those who invest in Adalo will find a super-capable, super-flexible and down-right FUN mobile and web app builder at their fingertips.

This site is built on Webflow! What more is there to say?! Webflow is possibly the best website builder out there, if you're willing to go through the learning curve.

Building a marketplace? Look no further. ShareTribe is the only NoCode platform I know of which is optimised entirely for building two-sided (buyer/seller) marketplaces like eBay or AirBNB.

You won't be able to add tons of custom features like in Bubble or Adalo, but if you want to get something branded, launched and avoid a learning curve or hassle, this is for you!

Bubble has been around for a decade now and has amassed a gigantic ecosystem of templates, plugins and experts. This alone earns it a place on our list! But beyond this, Bubble has continually stood the test of time as perhaps the best tool to use for a complex app idea.

There are two catches though! Firstly, it's not the easiest tool to use, expect a learning curve! Secondly, it cannot create mobile apps by default, web only - Instead pair Bubble with a tool like Progressier or Bravo Studio to achieve a mobile app!

Xano is a big favourite at NoCode.Tech - It's "Turing Complete" which is a nerdy term that means "You can build LITERALLY anything" with Xano.

They have a growing marketplace of templates and extensions to minimise the amount of time you need to spend building, and if you're familiar with REST APIs, you're going to feel right at home in Xano.

And if you're not? Well thankfully they've got a huge tutorial series to get you up to speed!
