Best App Makers of 2017

Last Updated: June 15, 2017

Remember those mobile phones with very limited capabilities such as the Nokia 6110? You know, the ones that only let you make phone calls, send painful text messages and play Snake? Yeah, neither do we. Today, smartphones and tablets, powered by applications (or apps), have become a significant part of our daily lives. Naturally, anyone with a product, service or business should offer a mobile application. Everyone is familiar with Apple’s attractive catchphrase “there’s an app for that!” In fact, this slogan propelled mobile apps to places we could not have imagined. However, surprisingly, many businesses and people still do not offer a mobile app alongside their website. This is because up until very recently, hiring a developer to create an app could cost tens of thousands of dollars. Thankfully, the technology world evolves quite rapidly and thus a whole new market of DIY (do it yourself) app makers have sprouted up. This may be one of the largest technological revolutions of the millennium. However, like every market, there are good services and bad ones. Therefore, we have reviewed all of the best app builder software on the market to help you find the right one that suits you best.

Many app builder companies allow you to build one app which runs impeccably on all platforms. However, this niche is still very new and therefore the quality between the services vary greatly. We have conducted research into the best app maker brands on the market. It is our hope that these app maker software reviews will help you make the best decision for your needs.


How We Evaluate App Maker Tools

Features

It is safe to say that the features offered by the various app maker brands is the most crucial part of the service. With such a broad range of businesses out there, an app creator needs to be able to handle anything thrown their way. Have an e commerce store? What about an events business? Not all app makers have the features you may need. Only a select few brands truly cater to any type of business. We break down the features of each app maker we review.

Ease of Use

The do it yourself app creator niche is a new one and therefore almost every brand uses various tools to make it easier for the user. Still, some are easier than others. The last thing you want is to purchase a plan only to find out you will need to learn code in order to create your app. We go into great detail about the usability and overall user experience from each service.

Pricing

To say pricing is important in today’s world is an understatement. However, pricing is a very broad term. You could pay $5 per month for a service, whereas a more expensive option would cost around $35 per month. However, what value are you getting from each service? We delve into the price and overall value proposition of each brand.

Support

It is no coincidence that successful brands are generally the ones with the best customer support. A service can offer a fantastic product but if their customer support is terrible, the company will almost likely go belly up. We evaluate the customer support experience in each review, and the response times as well. More importantly, we help determine whether or not a customer support team is well equipped in dealing with more technical inquiries.
