No-coding vs Coding Apps


The world of app creation can be tempting. With so many options, it's no wonder so many people have taken on the task of making their own apps. However, there are also plenty of apps out there that allow you to create your own without having to write any code yourself. These apps can seem like a great solution for anyone interested in creating an app but not wanting to learn how to do it themselves; however, they actually end up being quite problematic and don't always deliver what they promise (or worse). In this post we'll discuss coding vs non-coding apps and look at some reasons why learning how code is something everyone should do if they want control over their creations or if they ever plan on publishing their app in an app store like Google Play or Apple's App Store

Coding Apps

Coding apps are more expensive. The cost of coding apps is higher than the cost of no-coding apps, making them less accessible to people who are just starting out.

Coding apps are harder to learn. Learning how to use a coding app takes time and effort, so if you're just starting out with your first project, it might not be worth the effort until you have some experience under your belt.

Coding apps are harder to maintain once they're created (or after someone else has created them). If something goes wrong with a custom-built solution or one built by an expert in their field (rather than using one off the shelf), it could take longer for someone without knowledge about how that particular tool works or what went wrong with it when things go wrong at all!

No-coding apps

No-coding apps are extremely easy to use. You can create a website or app without knowing how to code, and you don't have to learn how to code at all.

No-coding apps let you do things that are possible with coding apps, but they're typically much simpler and easier than those types of programs. For example, no-coding programs will allow users who aren't programmers or web developers (like me) the opportunity to create their own websites or mobile apps without having any knowledge of HTML or CSS—the two most important languages used in developing websites on the internet today!


You may be wondering, "Why would I want an app that doesn't let me code?" And to that question, I'd answer: because no-coding apps don't give you control over your creation. You can't make changes to the code, add features or create new ones.

If this sounds like something that would be useful for your business and/or your customers (which it should), then go ahead and pay for a professional app developer who knows what they're doing!


  • You don't have control over your creation. If you're building a site, app or game, you want to be able to make changes to it whenever you want. But if you choose a no-coding platform and then change your mind about something, there's no way for you to fix it.

  • You can't sell the app after using it for free. Most people use these apps because they're looking for something very specific in their business or personal life--a way to improve productivity or fitness goals or even just stay organized better--and once they find that tool (or set of tools), they don't need them anymore! So what happens when those options expire after 30 days? could pay again...but probably not at full price! And even if somehow all those other users were willing out of their contracts too...why would anyone buy from someone else when they could just get another free trial themselves?

How to get started

Once you have a platform and template, it's time to add your content.

  • Choose the content you want to include in your app: You can add text, images and videos (as well as other types of media).

  • Add any links or buttons that will link back out from within your app. This is useful if users want more information about what they're seeing on screen—they'll be able to go right back where they came from!

No-coding apps can be very tempting, but they don't give you control over your creation.

Coding apps are a great way to make money, but they don't give you as much control over your creation as no-coding apps.

No-coding apps can be very tempting, but they don't give you complete control over your creation or any means of selling it. You can still use them for fun and learning purposes, but if that's what you're looking for in an app maker (or if the idea of creating something from scratch sounds daunting), then coding might not be right for you.


As you can see, both types of apps have their pros and cons. If you're looking for something that will be easy to use and doesn't require any coding knowledge, then no-coding apps are probably the way to go. However, if you want more control over what your app looks like or how it functions then coding apps may be better suited for your needs. It all comes down to what kind of experience do want from an app builder service?
