AppSheet

AppSheet has everything that I've needed for a small, RAD application. Complex calculations, solid record keeping, GeoLocation, Templatized broadcasts of documents and reminders, photo recordation, and so much more. Most of the billing is done by active users, however, you can even set an application to generate its own users, and control access restrictions within it rather than using the multi-user tier of AppSheet's design.

PowerApps

PowerApps does a great job of bridging the gap for mobile form entry where needed. We don't have a ton of mobile use cases, but that's because we haven't had a very active online tool kit until the deployment of O365. With most tools behind a firewall, any opportunity to work in business applications has been through VPN and that usually requires a PC/Mac. Now that we're able to access the system through a credentialed entry point in O365, we have the opportunity to think about what our mobile environment could look like. That's where PowerApps comes into our portfolio.

Pros

AppSheet

  • Ease of use and intuitive framework; can be as easy or as complicated as you need
  • Customization for organization needs
  • Integration with Google Sheets (or other third-party systems) means that viewing and editing data as an administrator is still easy and is reflected in the app

PowerApps

  • Easy to create new apps.
  • Integration with cloud data sources (Azure, Sharepoint).
  • GUI for creators is excellent.
  • Mobile and Desktop apps are created simultaneously.

Cons

AppSheet

  • GPS on the maps are terrible. We dont use the map to collect data as the signal is erratic only in Appsheet. We have another app installed on the same phone to get X,Y data which is copied and pasted into the appsheet solution. We have tried everything but Appsheet map and coordinate accuracy and erratic behaviour is below par.
  • Deployment management. While it is great that people see your changes right away, it sometimes leads to downtime if one makes a mistake. In the beginning it was hard to tell which changes would negatively effect the users and in some cases the data got jumbled due to table changes. Would be good if development, testing and deployment were better streamlined. No need for auto testing (like selenium etc.) just a place we can test before deploying. Now we have several "dev" versions with a cumbersome copy and paste system.

PowerApps

  • I feel that although it is possible to adapt the tablet view to desktop it can be cumbersome and the screen ratio is not right. There should be an option for making a desktop or browser based application specifically; or at least more screen ratio choices.
  • "PowerApps Desktop" is only available via windows store; for some enterprise users(specifically LTSB users) that makes it unavailable as windows store cannot be used with this version of Windows. A stand alone download or an explanation in the documentation would be nice to have.
  • I have spent a ton of time changing the formating over to the standard that I am using throughout the application on each data card or places where copy paste isn't an option. A format painter or a place to provide typical formating options such as font type and color would be a HUGE time saver for those of us trying to brand our applications.

There is still complexity in creating PowerApps, but you can't underestimate the power of the PowerApp, so naturally creating one could get complex. But the usage of the app should be straightforward, even if it relies heavily on the UX from the application designer. Overall, very user-friendly, does not require code, and relatively painlessly taps into business-critical information without requiring any data copying.

AppSsheet has a support group and they show videos to help app builders. Though I have truck drivers' hours and can't join the webinars. Support groups with better assists me on a Saturday evening or a Sunday that I have time off. It's hard to watch videos driving down the highway.

The community forums are extremely responsive to questions asked, there is a good body of online documentation and many community posts to draw from. Although the platform has changed, which means some of the posts are out of date and the solutions provided aren't relevant. Of relevance, I read over 400 articles plus documentation to get this first app built in SharePoint, move it to SQL and make it work exactly the way it should.

Alternatives Considered

AppSheet

We definitely looked at the competitors. I don't even recall what they were because when we hit AppSheet it was SO obvious how capable it was that the others literally disappeared from memory. They key was that ability to near-instantly deploy the kernel of your idea straight from anything from a spreadsheet to a cloud database, and then sit in front of your user the same day and ask, "Now, what would you like to see?"

PowerApps

PowerApps is the first we have used in Office 365 and Azure Integration. It really helped us to integrate application in Azure and building short apps with low cost

Return on Investment

AppSheet

  • AppSheet has allowed us to keep attendance records electronically. That in turn allows us to proactively manage waitlists, and thereby get rid of one of the major sources of complaints from our members, about not getting into the courses they want to join. For us, that's a great return on the investment of time we put into creating the system.
Helen Vorrath | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerApps

  • When having Office 365 subscription and Azure, has a superb ROI.
  • It is not necessary to have a best-in-class professional to start using.
