Snappy, but only in the sense that it moves fast

Reptile is certainly snappy, but only in the sense that it moves fast!

Reptile is a no-code platform enabling agencies and businesses to build apps without developers. A designer-friendly interface, automated app builds and ongoing support makes Reptile risk-free.

It is an app design, prototype and building platform enabling anyone to create an app using common web skills. It’s the newest player on the next-generation no-code (or low-code) technologies market and it’s building on already existing platforms.

What specifically can you do on Reptile?

Who do we think are the primary user groups?

What do we mean with next-generation of software technologies?

Since apps were first built – they started to appear in 2008 (see White label mobile apps benefits and limitations) –  with traditional technology it would have taken months (or in some cases even years) to deliver the app. Since then, app development has certainly taken off like a rocket.

First, white-label apps started to appear on the market - they were a quick solution for many businesses. They made the app design and development process as well as workflow simpler and faster.

The next-generation of app building technology is the no-code/low-code software several companies developed in the last few years (see a list of them here with our comments Six out of the box solutions how to get a mobile app).

Apart from being more accessible, the no-code/low-code way of creating an app allows the designers to focus on the content, flow of UE and UI and value creation of the app. They don’t need to be concerned about the development and structure behind the app, best leave it to us or companies which build these platforms. It gives the designers the opportunity to express their creativity in a quick and easy way via visual programming.

So, what are the capabilities of Reptile?

Reptile’s app design and prototyping interface offer designers the best tools available with a preview on a real app.

Speed – quick to market

Your business decides to get an app. You have an idea. You want to validate your idea as quickly as possible. This is where our new modular app platform Reptile comes in: we assemble it quickly from our existing component library with little or no coding knowledge required.

It offers the most efficient way yet to speedily build a robust app with and support included.

Affordability / cost efficient

Another great thing about Reptile is that it’s cost-efficient and affordable. First, it enables you to build a custom app five-time cheaper than the equivalent app built through a development agency.  You can use Reptile for as many pages as you want.

Of course, depending on the functionality of the app, the cost might increase, but with the additional benefit, you should consider it.

And just another thought … will it generate higher revenues if you’re having a custom-built app?

Powerful no-code tool

Reptile automatically builds apps from designs created on the platformReptile automatically builds apps from designs created on the platform. Third-party functions are added through a flexible API interface. And Reptile sits on a secure, enterprise-equipped, .net infrastructure.

That’s quite a powerful no-code tool, right?

It’s easy to use (‘insanely easy’ – see Design apps without limits) and has all the features you need for making a unique app and website simultaneously.

A ready-built set of components enables the rapid assembly of apps and built-in after-launch maintenance. To avoid restrictions on creativity, we can combine no-code, automated builds, with low-code factory-assisted builds.

Apps are released in the client’s own account ensuring brand integrity and the monthly contract covers support, maintenance and upgrades.

Adding and updating content

Well, that’s also simple and fast, especially if you compare it to traditional coding.

If you are familiar with WordPress or Google sheets, it’ll be easy for you to upload and to maintain the content.

Our visual user-friendly platform will give you the confidence to make the changes yourself and us the peace of mind that you can do it.  There is no lag between you changing the content and it’s updated on the app seconds later.

Responsive design

Everything has a logical flow to itAs already mentioned above, Reptile has a user-friendly platform that is intuitive, easy to understand and to learn.

The interface and UI design of Reptile has been designed with the user in mind and everything has a logical flow to it. It’s clean (not cluttered) and as simple or as complicated as you want it. Each section is clearly labelled and is designed to avoid complications and errors.

Free tuition/community

There are lots of video tutorials, articles and tips on tackling design issues and they are all provided free.

The Reptile Community - a place to showcase skills and help those who need it – is open for registration now. It will go live as soon as we have enough people registering their skills.

The Community Forum will enable anyone to ask questions and have them answered by experts. And it’s also a place where you can hire, or get hired.

What is different about us

Our new modular app platform 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.

Automated builds ensure consistency of code with maintenance, upgrades and support included for a fixed fee. 

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.

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.
