No Code App Development Platforms

While there are a plethora of no code and low code platforms for mobile app development, Lumavate is the only no code platform designed specifically with digital experiences in mind. 

Buying app development software is becoming the norm for creating apps. While companies are fed up with the normal process of lengthy project times, high cost, and lack of control, using no code app development platforms provides many advantages. However, with the growing number of mobile app builder solutions on the market today, many people don’t take the necessary time to choose the right software for their digital experience needs. But to really reap the benefits of great software, it’s important to take the time to really think about the software your business needs. 

In researching other app development platforms you’re likely to come across a Google AppSheets review. Just know, Lumavate is the only app development platform built with marketers specifically in mind. Other platforms like Appery and Mendix are low-code solutions, which mean some coding is required in order to build an app. While other no-code platforms exist, such as Appy Pie Appmakr, Buildfire, and Mobile Roadie, apps built on their platforms are delivered as native apps. Apps built on the Lumavate platform are delivered as Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), which means they don’t require an app store download, and therefore are more accessible and yield higher adoption and engagement than their native counterparts.

Finding the Right Mobile App Builder

Gartner Low Code 2021

Gartner does not have a low code nor a no code platform, rather the company analyzes the best low code platforms. Gartner is the world's leading research and advisory company.

A Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors. 

It’s a resource for analyzing and ranking application development platforms. The Magic Quadrant, in particular, looks at low and no code platforms in great detail and assesses how they are challenging markets, leading sectors, catering to niches or providing visionary innovation. 

Just being included in Gartner low code analysis is a bit of an honor. They don’t randomly select or attempt to provide an exhaustive analysis of all platforms. Instead, they look at market share, install base and additional market conditions to assess which platforms are worth analyzing in the first place. 

Gartner’s analytical process is intense. Platforms are judged by their products (or services), viability, sales execution, pricing and market responsiveness. All of that is plugged into their process, and then platforms are placed on the Magic Quadrant. The low code 2021 quadrant went over some of the biggest names in app development. They assessed which platforms were leading the charge, who was challenging those leaders and who were producing viable visions of the future. But a Magic Quadrant for enterprise low code application platforms isn’t the only thing they have on their website. Lumavate was included in six research notes by Gartner regarding Progressive Web App (PWA) platforms to consider.

Open Source Application Platform

Open source development has been a popular trend for a while now. Let’s dive into explaining what an open source no code app builder is (talk about a buzzword packed phrase). “Open source” refers to software that is publicly available rather than controlled by the original programmers. Therefore it can be modified, copied, and shared with others. So in terms of an app builder, open source means users can easily access, use, and modify the code of the builder. However, open source doesn’t mean that you have to know how to code; they can still be low code or no code platforms. The concept of open source initiatives is simply just to embrace collaboratively, an open-dialogue, and transparency when it comes to development.

Lumavate borrows from the idea by enabling you to use elements from the Lumavate Library. The Lumavate Library is constantly growing as the team adds more functionality and integrations. Lumavate offers components that integrate with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Vimeo, Brightcove, YouTube, Wistia, and more. While Lumavate is not an open source coding platform, it offers customers the experience of a no code app builder with the option of a low code platform.
