fast and easy prototyping. drag and drop is great. the sample apps are easy to walk through as well to get around the productCons:
iOS isn't universal yet. I had to create image assets again for all the different phones and ipad sizes.
For my only con, if you switch it to universal then it just works. Easy enough to make your ios app universal. Just need to generate new images assets.
I have 1 app waiting for review that i made entirely with dropsource and added in extras like universal and access to the torch/light. It dropped my production time by 75% for the app portion. The api portion for my app easily integrated which helped a good bit. I have 4 other apps in the pipeline that i will be using with dropsource as well.
Support is top notch, even before i was a paying customer my questions were answered fairly quickly and changes were rolled out as fast as possible.
Cost for the premium apps is cheap for the features you get. I am not a mobile developer but i can hold my own with web development so dropsource was able to bridge that gap for me and get my apps developed quickly.Matt has used this product for one year.

Dropsource is a great alternative to building mobile apps with code. No-code development is at least 4-5 times faster and less costly than traditional programming.Levon has used this product for one year.
