You may be thinking, “What about coding?” Coding is indeed an essential part of developing an application, but if you don’t know how to code, fret not. There are a lot many platforms available that lets you build your mobile app, and a dynamic one, without having to use a line of code.

Mobile App for Startups – What all needs to be considered

Let’s get familiar with some of these platforms.

  • Thunkable

Developing a mobile app and learning how the development works are something you will find rarely. And this is what exactly Thunkable offers. It allows you to learn to read the code and build your app at the same time. Thunkable uses a block-based approach, where you drag and drop puzzle-like blocks and connect them in order to create a function of your app. These blocks also have logics written on them, which let you know what will the selected block do. This is a very similar approach to the popular programming language learning platform “Scratch.”

Thunkable is a great way to build a mobile app as it is very visual. This means that you can see the design that you are building and then set the functions according to that.

  • BuildFire

To build a dynamic mobile app with tons of features, you would probably require a team of developers. But not with BuildFire. BuildFire is a one-stop-shop when it comes to portable app building. With this, you get to choose from a lot of code blocks called ‘plugins’ that look like widgets.

  1. You start by selecting a few basic plugins for the homepage and grab additional plugins for other pages of your app.
  2. For example, if you wish to add a video feature to your app, you can select the YouTube plugin and can have a video playlist feature automatically added to your app. It is that simple.
  3. Similarly, you can add other functions to your app like push notifications, user profiles, chat boxes, and whatnot.
