Essentially, you will likely be paying anywhere between $70 and $135 per month. Below is a chart of Appery.io pricing plans and what each plan comes with.
We were a bit surprised to see that finding the actual customer support channels was difficult. There are a few icons in the footer of the website that show all of the social media icons and an icon that looks like an envelope. This envelope icon is the one you will want to click on in order to reach a support agent (via email). However, their agents are both supportive and responsive. Because the software is based in the cloud, Appery.io employs not only software engineers who are customer support reps but also cloud experts. Overall, aside from finding the actual support channels, we were very pleased with the support service.
If you are looking for an app maker that is extremely easy to use while offering a ton of collaboration and overall features, Appery.io is a no brainer. But don’t be fooled – Appery doesn’t just cater to the technically challenged. If you are looking for mobile innovation at the enterprise level, you have met your match. Furthermore, the pricing options are extremely competitive and the support is top notch. Backed by leading software company Exadel, we believe you will be very pleased with Appery.io’s app maker software.
