"Once I got to BuildFire, I started to really see what was possible. I’ve been able to offer more value, close more deals, and charge more than double what I would have been able with my old app maker."

Most people don’t realize how much goes on behind the scenes of a well functioning mobile app. When you build an app from scratch there are hundreds of parts you’ll need to consider. You don’t want to spend time worrying about load balancers, firewalls, servers, databases, backups… etc. you get the picture. Fortunately for you, BuildFire’s app builder takes care of all the heavy lifting for you so you can focus on what you care about most, your business.
Writing code takes time. There’s no avoiding that. You can’t always speed up the project by throwing more developers on it either. So when you have the opportunity to leverage an app builder full of pre-built functionality that’s already been tested at scale, the cost and time savings are a no-brainer.
When building a mobile app, everyone faces the constraints of quality, price, and speed. When you’re building an app on your own, it can be hard to align development resources in a way that gets you the app you want within your budget constraints. With BuildFire’s app maker we give you an unfair advantage in this equation. Our app maker saves you a significant amount of time by leveraging existing features, immediately leading to cost savings, and since these features are utilized by thousands of apps, you can rely on the quality of development.
Unfortunately app development doesn’t always go as planned for many people. What you think you’re getting might be wildly different than what you end up with. With the ability to rapidly prototype with our app builder, we’re able to show you up front what type of app you’re going to get.
Usually an app management dashboard is an afterthought for most people building their app from the ground up. Normally you would have to get a developer involved for every little change you’d like to make with your app. With BuildFire’s app builder, that is a core element of the experience. Even if we end up developing custom functionality for you.
There are actually many options to choose from in the market, and at face value it might be hard to understand the difference between many of the different app builders. However, there are many very important differences between app builders. The differences are a combination of quality, functionality, customizability, support and price. What makes BuildFire stand out is our high level of customer service, ability to customize the platform far beyond our existing functionality, our simple to use interface, as well as our robust amount of features available in the marketplace. If you’re looking for the cheapest option available for simple apps, you might want to look for a cookie cutter app builder that doesn’t offer much customization.
An app maker allows you to build multiple apps for Android and iOS devices without writing a single line of code. BuildFire’s drag and drop app creator allows non-technical users to build mobile apps without needing to get a developer involved. Our mission is to empower the business professional to create high quality apps without ever having to worry about technical infrastructure or manage a team of developers. The concept of an app maker revolves around utilizing modular building blocks of functionality to build your app, essentially piecing it together like lego pieces. Our marketplace consists of over 150+ units of functionality called plugins you can utilize to build your app.
Using an app maker allows you to create an app and bring it to market in far less time than you can compared to building it from scratch. Our thesis is why spend time and money reinventing the wheel. Every time you build a mobile app there are many common components such as authentication, push notifications, firewalls, load balancing, multimedia, content management etc. BuildFire has all of these common features ready to go out of the box so you can focus on what matters most, the functionality that makes your mobile app unique.
Using an app maker still allows you to build native mobile apps for iOS and Android, however by using a platform, you won’t need to build everything from scratch for your mobile application. Hiring a development team to build your app from scratch can be time consuming and risky, so unless your app is your business, it generally makes sense to find more cost effective mobile app development solutions like an app creator.
Yes you can! Our developer SDK makes extending the functionality of the BuildFire app creator very easy and powerful. There is no limit to the type of advanced features you can create.
This is a question we get very often and unfortunately there isn’t a one size fits all answer. It’s like saying how much does a house cost? It certainly depends on the size and scope of the app that you’re trying to create. If all the features you need for your app are available on our platform out of the box, it is arguably the most cost effective way to build an app. If we don’t have all the functionality you need for your app out of the box, we typically still have most of the functionality you need and it will still be considerably cheaper to build with us vs. building your app from scratch.
BuildFire will handle the submission of your application to both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. You will be required to create your own developer accounts, however we will handle the submission and review process for you. Since our app maker launched, we’ve put 10,000+ apps into the market!
Within the mobile app development space there are essentially two distinct categories of development platforms. Low-code and No-code platforms. Most low-code development platforms still require programming knowledge and coding skills, while no-coding required app creators allow you to build mobile apps without writing a single line of code. The biggest thing you should be evaluating when you’re evaluating a no-code app creator is whether or not they support adding custom functionality to your app typically through a developer SDK.
We have a 14 day free trial you can sign up with to start building your app completely risk free! Our free app maker plan makes it easy for anyone to build a professional app from scratch.
Apps created with BuildFire have built-in app maker data on the backend. As an owner or admin, this gives you crucial insights into your users, their behavior, and app performance. You can even use tools to connect your app with an existing database.
New app maker apps are launched every day through various platforms and app makers. End-users won’t know the difference between an app created with a drag-and-drop builder or traditional development. But BuildFire really stands out when you compare it side by side with an existing app maker. Apps built on our platform have limitless capabilities. If you can’t find a feature you need from our expensive app marketplace, you can have your own app developer or one of our developers create it for you. Other app makers and no-code app builders don’t offer this level of total customization.
