Shop No Further...Appy Pie is what you need.

Before Appy Pie, I was having difficulty being able to get all of our products listed so that the customers knew what we have available to purchase. With Appy Pie, that problem is solved and our revenue has increased.

Anyone can use this

Even the most amateur coder can have access to very powerful tools. This is truly an amazing thing they've done here. Highly recommend.

Great way to get a mobile app

This is a great service and will save you thousands over a custom app if you take the time to put it together.

Making things Easier

My overall experience with Appy Pie was great because it solved my problem of need an app for my business but not being able to afford the development and maintenance of the app since then I was able to create my own booking app for my business.

Frustrating Waste of Time

Terrible. I'm just hoping this is a really bad learning curve. We got a fully functioning LMS (with tests, grading, certificates, surveys, videos, etc.) up and running by ourselves TWO YEARS AGO (from another site we found here on capterra) so I can't imagine an app being any harder than an LMS - but it seems this one is. I will update my review if it gets better and we actually launch something but right now it does not look good.

Pros

The software is surprisingly easy to use and overall the features are easy to use regardless of your experience level. One of my favorite features is that it has you covered no matter of app that you are using it for. The features it offers are outstanding and there are so many features. If you find yourself in a position where you could use technical help then you are in luck with their amazing technical staff. They will walk you right the steps you need to take in a way that works for your experience level. The technical department responds quickly to emails. When it comes times for updates APPY Pie has it done in no time at all and will send you a link if you like it. You really cannot go wrong with Appy Pie

Cons

I took several minutes to try and come up with something I did not like about this software and I really could not come up with one thing.

This is a great service and will save you thousands over a custom app if you take the time to put it together.

Pros

Appy Pie was relatively easy to setup. It gives options for publishing information and building a custom app. If you get creative with what you want to do with an app you can get a lot out of the tools it has to offer.

Cons

Setup and publishing the app is tricky. There are a lot of steps to setting up the Google and IPhone app store access and codes, BUT the Appy Pie team will get you through it if you are patient. They are easy to get on the chat service and have always solved the issue in the end.

Pros

What I like the most about this app is that it makes application development more accessible to the average consumer and the advantage is that they even have a free trial mode

Cons

What I like to list about this software is that it is a bit limited when it comes to the side of design in the user interface, that user is limited to the options that are provided by the AppyPie

Pros

They answered the phone although it seems like they are having multiple conversations at one time - which often leads to confusing and bad information.

Cons

They didn't help me when they answered in the phone. It doesn't seem like anyone speaks English as a 1st language and both I and my computer engineer had a very difficult time understanding what they were saying. In fact one tech support person told me to delete some of my work (and repeatedly told me to do so), then when I wanted to add my categories back (because they should have never been deleted in the 1st place), the add button didn't work to add them back again. I tried different browsers and sent them print screens - so I'm wondering if this software works reliably. They're telling me to email them the problem when I'm already sharing print screens (and I have video) through their live chat.

There is an ENORMOUS language barrier - and the features and functions of appy pie are not well described. I spent all day trying to learn what was a category and what was a listing and how to add a page in a category (or maybe it's a listing). There is no glossary with pictures and there is no "i" button next anything and their broken English makes it virtually impossible for communications.

I am perturbed that they told me to have them build my site instead after they told me to delete some of my work and their buttons no longer work to add what I deleted. That seemed kind of wrong - and I wonder if anyone else was told to delete their progress and then their appy pie dashboards buttons were deactivated so they couldn't move forward again.
