What is AppSheet?

Acquired by Google in Spring 2020, AppSheet is an intelligent, no-code app platform for everyone. Users can create apps to transform the workplace.

Common use cases include field service, transportation, customer surveys, incident reports, field data capture, compliance reports, delivery tracking, and property surveys.

Used by the Fortune 500 & Industry Leaders
Customers include Clearlink, Enterprise Holdings, ESPN, Pepsi, the University of Michigan, and the State of Colorado.

AppSheet allows users to build a No Code App in 4 Ways
1) Connect your data sources (e.g. Excel, Google Sheets, SQL, etc.).
2) Copy a sample app.
3) Use an Add-On for Google Sheets, Forms, or Excel.
4) Start from SPEC, our natural language declarative programming tool.

The vendor says AppSheet is useful if you:
1) Require a custom mobile app to brand and distribute to employees, colleagues, or customers
2) Are not a software developer
3) Work on a phone or tablet to capture information
4) Are part of a team that needs to work seamlessly offline and online
5) Want the app to have rich functionality
6) Like the power of building and deploying a custom mobile app in minutes
7) Want to be able to work offline and sync to cloud when connected

  • Quick to setup.
  • Simple to use.
  • Works on multiple platforms on the go.
  • Great documentation and support.
  • Allows one to be really creative.
  • Once the tables / UX Views get way too many in number, it can become a little daunting to manage. This part of the UX may need something really smarter.
  • Ability to Undo.
  • Could provide more UI Look and Feel options. BTW, the new Graphs look great, but have some bugs, while the new INPUT() feature is a great addition too.

  • I can keep my test data in Google Spreadsheets.
  • AppSheet does a good job creating a first "raw" skeleton of a prototype app.
  • If you name your data fields in a good way, AppSheet will correctly guess many of your intentions and create some basic infrastructure and artifacts that will save you time.
  • AppSheet has enough configuration capabilities to turn a prototype into an "alpha version" of an app that you can use for demos to colleagues etc.
  • AppSheet primarily assumes data are in RDBMS/SQL systems, but it should be technically possible and certainly desirable to keep data in a hybrid data store, e.g. GOOGLE Firebase collections, if/when these are modeled similar to RDBMS tables. (Maybe this is already possible, but it was not obvious to me.)
  • The views, esp. "deck" and "card" views, should offer more layout configurations.
  • It would help a lot if the "Data" and "UX" menu items would allow a tree-like grouping of the objects.

  • Creation of Applications for Financial Management.
  • Creation of productivity person APP.
  • Creation of APP for project management.
  • Although there is a lot of study material, it takes time to understand the full potential of the Appsheet.
  • Although all the material [are] in English, it is possible to access translations or learn in the forums and in an intuitive way.
  • The simplest apps can be created with the free version, for more complex functions or to achieve certain distributions, a license must be paid per user.

  • As a no-code development platform, AppSheet makes developing apps fast.
  • AppSheet allows us to use many different data sources such as Google Sheets and SQL.
  • AppSheet has a great community that is very supportive of each other.
  • AppSheet is fun to develop on.
  • For certain types of applications with high user counts, AppSheet subscription fees can get a little expensive.
  • Applications built on AppSheet are very responsive to phones, tablets, and computers but it would be nice if it had a computer-specific layout.

  • Being able to prepare an app almost without coding and without the need for a developer account is incredibly powerful.
  • Working on multiple platforms is a real bonus. I have been able to work with both Android and iOS devices on the field, without any kind of problems.
  • Developing, [...] testing, and refining the app is a very fluid process.
  • With a little extra work, and some extra programming, [multiple] language apps can be created.
  • Registering tracks would be a very good bonus for my line of work.
  • When creating a new app from a Google sheet, fields used as names or separators in the app structure could benefit from a clever way to be detected, similarly to other types of fields.
  • Setting personalized icons, besides the ones available, would also be a bonus.

  • Synchronizes data from spreadsheets.
  • Updates live from One Drive data sources.
  • Has handy layouts for using own data.
  • Has great YouTube instruction videos.
  • Has a vibrant community.
  • Provides live webinars to walk through different actions.
  • Expectation management, i.e. telling app creators before they share what their first readers can expect, i.e. download AppSheet, etc.
  • More end to end, single track how-to processes. It is hard to wrench in own starting position into processes from a different direction to a different destination.
  • It would be ideal to gather how-to questions from users to create step by step chronological routes to reach these results.

  • Saves time extremely.
  • Easy to enter data.
  • Take snapshot of receipts and all paperwork which allows for a paperless company.
  • I get up at 2:00 a.m. and go to work and don't get home till 6:00pm or 7:00pm. I would love to have some after-hour support and guidance when I run across problems in AppSheet. Don't get me wrong, there's not many problems, just a few minor details that I need help working out the formula.
  • I had no other issues with this app.
