How to Use our Comparison Tool?

We wanted to create a tool that packed in all of our info for each app builder review, whilst also allowing you to compare them side-by-side. If you're anything like me, gathering up all the facts before making a decision is really important!

With our comparison tool you basically get to have your cake and eat it too. Why? Because you don't just get the 'at a glance' info, we've also included the full details from our review tables within the tool. All you need to do is hover over the section and the extra info pops right up!

This is just our top five, but you can easily mix and match. Just drop a couple by clicking on the crosses in the top right corner, and add new ones by hitting the big red 'plus' symbol on the left. Not too difficult right? Oh, and they'll always be ranked in order from highest to lowest, left to right, no matter which ones you choose.

 

Our Top App Builders

GoodBarber is our top pick due to its focus not only on design flexibility, but also its range of features available. There are many professional-looking themes to choose from, and then extensive customisation within that, all easy to do without needing a degree in design. GoodBarber also offers great location-based and social features. Read the full GoodBarber review here.

 

AppMachine is a jack-of-all-trades. Without focusing on a specific app category, they cover most options well with their features. They have a range of powerful pro features, unique to them, which can also be trialled within the free period. And their playful, lego-style building block design creates a user-friendly experience for all. Read the full AppMachine review here.

 

Shoutem also boast great social features, such as chat and social walls, and cover location-based features very well. While not boasting the superior design of our top-ranked app maker, discovering their powerful features are worth the time investment. Read the full Shoutem review here.

 

Bizness Apps combines niche features with a strong focus on ecommerce. They have great support, and their location-based offerings should have something for app makers of all categories. Read the full Bizness Apps review here.

 

Swiftic is the choice for ecommerce. If you have a store, whether it already exists in one form or another, or you need to build one from scratch, then Swiftic is your best bet. Read the full Swiftic review here.

 

Unfortunately we couldn't squeeze everything on this page, but if you want to find out more about each app maker then check out our in-depth reviews. You'll find video reviews, pros and cons, screenshots and more!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!
