Like using Figma to design an app but it's functional

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: If you have good ideas paired with the time and desire to learn how to build your own app in Bubble, it is a fantastic, very empowering tool. Developing apps is hard, but Bubble makes developing an app without prior app development experience a lot less painful than you might expect. It definitely helps to tap in to the community for support and tutorials.

Pros:

Plain language expression composing and drag and drop design.

Cons:

My own inexperience with app logic has been the only difficulty using Bubble.

A great no-code platform to build MVPs and more

5.0 last year

Comments: I started Bubble to build my company's app. Now that it's up and running I'm a full time bubble freelancer. I really love my job, I work on a lot of different apps and it's a real pleasure to open my bubble editor every day. My clients are super satisfied.

Pros:

What was most important for me at the beginning is that you can really build anything you want. I tried no code platforms before but there was always something that I couldn't do and my clients were disappointed. Now with bubble anything they ask, I can build. With the new responsive engine it's super easy to build beautiful apps in no time that work on all devices.

Cons:

I think the learning curve is pretty steep. When you start you immediately see the potential of Bubble but to achieve what you really want, you need to work a lot and learn a lot.

Easy of learning if you already have some basics

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Very good. Always eager to learn more and curious to know what will be the next releases from the team!

Pros:

The flexibility. You can basically build anything.

Cons:

The content of the learning center and from video tutorials are only for beginners when you start already dominate bubble but you still have lots of room for improvement is quite difficult to find content

Auto-pay is next to impossible to cancel.

1.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Tried it. Didn’t like it. Couldn’t cancel it. After paying for it over a year I finally had to change my bank account to keep them from robbing me through auto-pay. I have nothing good to say after being ripped off for a year. Bubble.io SUCKS!!

Pros:

The concept is cool. There are a plethora of detailed videos for every conceivable option with developing apps. So many in fact it becomes an adventure finding answers to things easily solved with standard programming. One could spend a lot of time learning how to find out how to find out how to write an app for canceling service with bubble.

Cons:

It’s easier to write code than to learn how this works.

Bubble for prototyping

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: My overall experience is very good. The bubble is the fastest way to develop a prototype to validate your business idea with no code.

Pros:

I can integrate and call APIs from AWS Cloud very easily. Bubble allows me to control the App responsiveness to make it align to different UIs. Also, I like that I can create a duplicate from my project as a backup and restore it whenever needed.

Cons:

Bubble is really expensive and the free trial does not allow to integrate any APIs. I don't like the database in bubble as it is very restricted and does not allow any customizations. Also, It is a little bit slow to preview image and files hosted on bubble servers.
