    Love the amazing design capabilities and live testing which makes designing an app in real-time so much easier


    Takes some time to become an expert

    The team behind Thunkable is very professional. I’ve been using their classic platform the past two years and they’ve always released products with great care and customer service

Hello Product Hunt, Big thanks to @justinkan for hunting us! We created Thunkable ✕ to enable anyone to build native mobile apps for both Android and iOS. Thunkable ✕ is a DIY cross-platform app builder, where anyone can easily design beautiful apps, drag & drop powerful functionality and then upload their apps to the Google Play Store and App Store. There are two parts to the tool: Designer: Allows you to create an app UI by adding different UI components to your screen, such as buttons, TextBoxes, GoogleMaps, etc. It also allows you to add non-visible components to your apps, such as SMS receivers or NFC sensors. Blocks: Thunkable has a blocks-based programming language that makes it easy for anyone programmers to use, yet robust enough to build unique, beautiful and powerful apps (you can make functions, variables, callbacks, etc.). You can also test your apps in real-time on your personal mobile devices with the Thunkable Live app, which is available for Android and iOS. We’d love to hear your feedback, and answer any questions you may have! Thanks, Arun

@justinkan @aksaigal If you are planning to do sales, reach out to companies who are hiring for mobile app developer or designer and have employee strength less than 50. They will be the right fit for you.

Arun, congrats on the launch! Can you talk about how Thunkable product has evolved over time, and where you see yourself going with it in the future?

@eriktorenberg Thank you! When we first launched, Thunkable was Android only. The plan was always to enable users to build apps for Android and iOS, so creating a cross-platform was the next step. We then built Thunkable X from the ground up, on a modern technology stack that enables users to design beautiful apps, and integrate the most powerful and recent technologies. Now that Thunkable X is live, we are focused on expanding the functionality of the platform. We are working on deploying new features and functions, and integrating new technology such as Bluetooth capability, push notifications, AR, VR and AI. Our goal is to enable users to easily build, design or prototype anything they can think of.

Hi, the website states that your service is free to use and there's a maintenance fee for the use of certain components. Could you tell us what the maintenance fee is? It is not disclosed on the pricing page. Thanks!

Arun SaigalMaker@aksaigal
@angeliquesocial Absolutely. If you use a component that is revenue generating, we will take a cut of that. Right now, in the documentation for each component, we explain specifically what we do. Here is the documentation for the Stripe component (we take a 2% cut), which is currently the only monetizable component on (though we plan to add more):
