No code tools are all the rage these days. With more and more people getting into entrepreneurship, the need for simple and easy-to-use tools has never been greater. These tools allow you to build your business without having to learn how to code. While there are some limitations to what you can do with no-code tools, they still provide a lot of value for entrepreneurs who want to get their business off the ground quickly.
In this blog post, we will explore the world of no-code tools and see how they can help you build your new startup!
No code tools are pieces of software that allow you to build websites, apps, and other digital products without having to write any code. This is a huge benefit for startup founders who may not have the time or resources to learn how to code. No code tools can help you get your business up and running quickly and with less hassle.
While there are some limitations to what you can do with no-code tools, but they still provide a lot of value for entrepreneurs who want to get their business off the ground quickly.
No code tools work by providing you with a visual interface that you can use to drag and drop different elements to build your website or app. They are usually very easy to use and don't require any coding knowledge. Even if you've never coded before, you should be able to pick up a no-code tool and start building your product within a few minutes.
There are a number of different no-code tools available on the market today (more about this subject 'The top 7 most important app development process steps you should look for in a mobile app builder platform' from a previous blog) which might also be of interest to you.
Some of the most popular include:
Webflow - Webflow is a website builder that allows you to create custom websites without having to write any code.
Bubble - Bubble is a visual programming tool that allows you to build web and mobile apps without coding.
AppSheet - AppSheet is a no-code platform that lets you quickly build mobile apps from your existing data sources.
Adalo - Adalo is a no-code platform that allows you to build custom mobile apps without writing any code.
If you want to read more about these and other platforms, read the blog, where I'll compare some of the better-known mobile app-building platforms (2021) and highlight each of their USPs ('Six out of the box solutions how to get a mobile app for your business')
When you're choosing a no-code tool, it's important to make sure that you pick one that has the features and capabilities that you need.
Don't be afraid to experiment with different ones until you find the perfect fit for your startup.
What are the benefits of an app for a startup?
More and more small businesses see that using an effective mobile strategy involves more than just a mobile-friendly website.
You might have noticed that many small businesses you interact with have their own dedicated mobile app – be it the coffee shop on the corner or the fitness studio where you’re a member.
Maybe you have more questions about this subject and we're trying to answer these too:
If you’ve got a start-up, you’ll need a website, no doubt. Nowadays those looking to take their businesses online can benefit from a slew of no-code website applications. No-code websites are advantageous for a number of reasons. By opting to use a no-code program to create your start-up website, you’ll save a lot of time and you’ll be able to implement changes as you see fit.
No-code and low-code tools and platforms come to the rescue, but this is not a game of one replacing the other. However, we cannot achieve that with platforms that use proprietary technologies, create silos, and leave the “high” code alternative as a last resort when the no-code/low-code developers hit the wall of limitations. In that direction, a low-code platform needs to be open so that: Users can turn their low-project to high-quality code for the framework of their choice to maintain it outside of the platform the traditional way.
No-code platforms are especially valuable to the public sector. By comparison, low-code development is far faster, more agile and less costly. With low-code platforms, public-sector developers no longer write all software code manually. Low-code tools are not appropriate for all projects. Experienced developers can benefit from using low-code tools, too.
Our new no-code modular app platform Reptile is the most efficient way yet to build and support apps. Imagine the business app of your dreams and we assemble it quickly from our existing component library.
You, your designer (or if you have a marketing agency) designs your app just the way you want it (most designers use a software tool called Figma).
Once you've made the design, you upload these designs on Reptile.
Then press the Build button and in 10 minutes Reptile has automatically build the native iOS and Android apps for you.
You can then sign these files with your own Apple or Google store account and publish the app in your name. (And you have saved yourself a lot of money and built an app in 10 minutes that used to take us a month at least to do it manually.)
Another good side-effect is that automated builds ensure consistency of code (that means that developers cannot introduce new bugs into the sytem when writing coding).
From our expert mobile UX designers to the technical team who can integrate the app into your network, we provide a dedicated team to support you all the way.
Reptile will host your services and plug them into Reptile's secure technology, provides support and updates your app regularly (Apple and Android systems have a habit of changing requirements several times a year!) for a fixed monthly fee. No support headaches, no nasty surprise bills.
We are continuously looking for ways to improve things using technology. As such, we’ve built many apps that we’re proud of, and if you are interested, here is a link to a few of our recent achievements we’d like to share with you.
