- Lately, I've been advocating Bubble a lot and it deserves it. I exactly went through the loop of finding a cofounder/hiring people to create website/app for me and then I found Bubble/Sketch/Webflow and many more to do everything by myself. The good thing is (in case you wanna give it a shot), you'll find an absolutely eager-to-help community and hire/work with freelancers, Bubble partners to build things for you in the time unimaginable. Now, this may sound like an overused phrase but I really go by @stef - "Ideas are a dime-a-dozen, and really, given how hard it is to take an idea and turn it into something, a product, a business, a project, the likelihood that someone is going to think “gosh, what a great idea, I’ll steal that” and turn it into something successful is vanishingly small."
Look: There’s no platform that can enable someone with no freaking clue about how to build an app to magically build one... But boy does Bubble come close.
I love visual/no-code/alterna-code environments and have worked on several of the most famous ones. Bubble is right up there.
I feel like this tool‘s positioning (“you don’t have to be a coder”) belies its true strength. It‘s GRRRREAAAT for those who would rather NOT code most stuff.
I do my best to help folks out in the forums at forum.bubble.is, but wish it had a StackExhange equivalent -- it’s that deep. Love it and wish it the best. You can build awesome stuff on Bubble, but (duh) prepare to learn some computer science In the process (this is a GOOD thing)...
An app that's more about doing something technically than paying any attention to the user or use-cases. Is just very impractical, with all the real-world features difficult to impossible. Just look at data-upload: https://forum.bubble.is/t/best-way-to-bulk-upload/1690
