Low code is changing the development scene in all sizes of companies, from SMBs to large corporations. The goal is the same: to get the best app possible for business without the need to sacrifice too many valuable resources such as time, people, and, of course, money.
In the early days, to build and deploy an app, you needed to be a badass developer (or be prepared to pay one). This method was costly and time-consuming. However, because of the rise of low-code, all of that has changed. In this article, you’ll find 6 examples of successful apps built on different low-code and no-code platforms that are rocking out there.
What is low code?
Low-code development was originally mentioned in December 2014, but it didn’t fully take off until September 2018 and is a method for non-programmers and programmers alike to create apps without writing a single line of code by leveraging visual interfaces. Low-code is all about making technology accessible to everyone and allowing anyone to create any software they want without any limitations.
By providing pre-made blocks, low-code app development substantially decreases the time spent constructing applications of any complexity level. Thanks to visual development, low-code platforms enable developers to see exactly how their program will look in real-time (for business users, this is critical).
Basically, the only thing you have to do if you’re in the low-code building is deciding how you want your app to appear, how it will function, and which features you want to include. Welcome to a world full of possibilities!
Low code apps examples:
Kiddie Kapital is a financial literacy app that teaches kids interactively how to earn and manage money by completing simple domestic chores that are posted and paid for by their parents.
On the other hand, this app helps parents teach their kids the value of hard work, the importance of personal finance, and the value of social responsibility.
Built on Glide + Make (Formerly Integromat), Kiddie Kapital also counts with an API Integration with Charity Navigator that allows the youngest users to donate part of their earnings to the charity of their preference.
Amz Jobs-Low code job board
This web app targets two main audiences:
- Companies: as a company, users can pay to post new jobs with all the specifications needed, such as name, description, type, role, location, link to apply, contact info, etc.
- Candidates: as a candidate, users can see all the available jobs, search for a specific one, or filter by location, role, part-time, full-time, or contractor, and most importantly, apply to the jobs.
The platform is straightforward to use by companies and great at SEO for discoverability by candidates.
Blaze Stack-Fire department app
Blazestack is a fire investigation platform that allows users to log, document, and report fire investigations. Whether it’s a big state agency, a small local fire department, or somewhere in between; the interface helps create a more thorough fire scene investigation and generates reports faster.
Something that we like about this Bubble app is that, whatever the location, the users will be ready with advanced features for data collection, report generation, and collaboration.
These are some of the amazing features that Blaze Stack has to offer to every fire investigator out there:
- Fire scene data logging workflow
- One-click origin & cause report generation
- Instant summary reports
- Arrest logs
Swapstack is an advertising and newsletter marketplace. With a Bubble app and a Webflow page, this low-code platform’s main goal is to connect brands to newsletter audiences for relevant sponsorships.
Swapstack targets two principal audiences:
- Brands: With hundreds of writers covering topics like business to parenting and everything in between, any brand finds the perfect audience on Swapstack.
- Writers: freelancers who are in charge of writing newsletters for active brands with a 0% on-boarding fee and a slack community with over 1,000 subscribers to meet.
Motocross Families of America (MFA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the motocross community together in new and exciting ways. MFA aids track owners and motocross event planners by streamlining motocross event processing with their event processing automation app.
- Post upcoming events (practice days, race days, etc.)
- Search for upcoming events
- Register for events
- Pay event fees
- Sign liability waivers
- Receive registration barcode(s) for entry to registered events
and much more, all from their phone, iPad, or computer and anywhere in the world.
PS. Something we love about this app is that most of the earnings from motocross events go to charity.
Dwellos users can use this app to keep track of their properties as well as their bills, assets, invoices, tasks, and contacts associated with them. It also features a few advanced settings, like an OCR feature for bills (which means that users upload a PDF or image and the app converts it to text) and an API call for asset manuals, as well as the ability to send email reminders for chores.
The interface allows users to add one property for free and pay for their second. Users may upload their water, wi-fi, phone, and other bills to the app and search for them by category. They can also send bills to a secure email address to convert them to text and categorize them with AI on the app. Users can also keep track of their personal belongings, such as appliances and décor. They can also associate bills with assets, while maintaining a contact list for all property-related contacts, such as service providers and others.
The “Spending Tab” is a feature that we particularly enjoy about this app because it allows customers to keep track of their expenses by category and according to their bills. Finally, users can create task reminders for themselves to keep track of any pending paperwork for their home as well as simple household duties.
