Overall Satisfaction with AppSheet

We are developing various rapid prototypes and variants for a planned mobile app.
  • 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.
  • Much faster time-to-market for a data app.
  • Better discussion and sync with stakeholders at seed stage.
  • Faster A/B testing with Alpha Group.

Do you think AppSheet delivers good value for the price?

Suited: Rapid prototyping of hybrid mobile apps that are primarily data apps. Less suited: Apps that must be sophisticated in layouts and visuals from day 1.
