Overall Satisfaction with AppSheet

I currently work on the side by being a professional driver for a large car dealer in nearby towns. I have developed an app using AppSheet to make it easy to keep up with drive data. One advantage is I can update things like purchasing gas in the app while at the pump so I do not get anything wrong for my reimbursement. The only disadvantage is the app looks a little generic so I would like to jazz it up a bit with more pictures and better presentation on the form pages.

Pros

  • I like the map feature.
  • I am paid by the mile so "how far" and a map make it easy to know how well I am doing.
  • I have to keep track of expenses and I need my phone on the trips. I can easily enter expense data using the app I made.

Cons

  • Using my own logo was a bit challenging.
  • Setting up backgrounds sometimes works and sometimes not.
  • There are not enough ways to jazz up the form presentations. So, even though it is functional it would be nice if when I show it to someone it has a little wow to it.
  • I will use it some more and decide how well it suits my needs.
  • If this is a good fit for me others will ask to have one made for them when they see me use it that is why more "good looks" will spark interest.
  • At this point I do not see how I can have different people access their own data by configuring the app. I am not sure about the pay version...
I have done a lot of software development and have made several programs that can input data into Microsoft Excel and then process the data for integration into ERP solutions. In doing this IT development work I have made several web sites and updated several others. I also have spent a lot of time on other web sites for many different companies. So far this AppSheet was easy to use. The user should have some google sheets type experience.
Easily using Google data was the key for me. I am going to track the information anyway, this gave me an even better way to present the data on the mobile device. I will still use Google Sheets.

AppSheet doesn't have ways to use the camera for collecting data - so some way of filtering the data so I can look only at the data I need would be nice.
