Technology is currently in every single thing we do. Most likely we have asked ourselves several times How can I create an App? If you have done some research you know that to create an App or called a program it is necessary to code.
Coding is a skill that not everyone can develop. Sometimes you know how to code but you just don’t have the time to do it. That’s where a visual development platform like bubble.io comes in.
Bubble is a no-code development platform, which has been designed to help build applications without coding. It could be a simple App with a few features or a complex one to run an entire business on a large scale. Bubble gives the capability to people that are familiar with coding to create what they need. The beauty of Bubble is that also can help coding experts with advanced knowledge to build high-level features so we are talking about a flexible platform.
It may sound simple, but as you gain experience, you realize its ability to carry out complex processes. Complex processes without having to deal with the syntax of a programming language.
What kind of apps can I create in bubble.io?
You may think that it sounds too good to be true. Or because is a relatively new technology there will not be much support from the community. A lot of successful applications are built-in Bubble Marketplace. On the other hand, the Bubble Forum is a community where you can post your queries therefore people with more experience can help you. Also, you will be able to help someone caught in a bug that you have already solved.
You can create apps like:
- – A custom API.
- – A custom application capable of consuming and displaying data stored in another application, for example, Salesforce. You can make a custom interface. It could show exactly the specific information the client needs.
- – Product sales applications.
On top of that, with Bubble, you don’t have to worry about having staff to manage your database, deployments, and general operation. The platform with its tools takes care of it for you.
Bubble offers basic management within its ecosystem of data.
The capacity of instant integration through Plugins and third-party applications for:
- – Sending emails
- – Webhooks
- – Pre-made templates
- – Automatic branch management for collaborative work
- – Managing different sub-apps: targeting different customers are just some features of a large ecosystem. Most likely, you will find what you are looking for.
What can’t I do?
Despite Bubble’s capabilities to manage complex processes, one of the main constraints of the system is its lack of graphic capacity. If you need to create an App with heavy animation like a game or a cutting edge portal, Bubble is not the right choice.
