Frequently asked questions
Can you build apps without coding?
Yes, a no-code platform makes it possible to build apps without coding. No-code app builders use prebuilt blocks and a declarative interface to make app building simple. Just drag and drop the prebuilt blocks into place to build mobile, web, and internal business apps. With no-code development platforms, even people without any coding experience can build simple apps quickly, easily, and more affordably than they could using traditional coding methods.
What are examples of no-code apps?
A no-code app is any app that’s built without traditional coding by a developer, whether it’s a mobile app, web app, or a simple internal business app. Some examples of no-code apps that are in use by businesses today include apps for onboarding employees, tracking production, automating workflows, and engaging event attendees. Since no-code apps are simple and easy to build, businesses often use many no-code apps at once and each one solves a single problem.
What is the disadvantage of a no-code app builder?
The primary disadvantage of a no-code app builder is that you’re usually limited to whatever prebuilt blocks and features are included in the platform, so customization is limited. Also, most no-code apps are narrow in focus and solve just one business challenge. That means you may have to build more apps using no-code techniques rather than one robust, traditionally or low-code built app that could solve a few problems at a time. Since all no-code apps are built on platforms, your experience depends completely upon the organization that built the platform, and any changes could negatively impact your apps or process.
Is no-code going to replace developers?
No-code tools have become both useful and popular, but they won’t replace developers. No-code apps are built using templated components and thus have limited customization options. Any organization that needs or wants complex apps will need developers to build them using custom code. Introducing a no-code development platform to your business makes it faster and easier to build and deploy apps across the business, freeing up developers’ time for more complex work.
