What is the best web based App development tool out there? It is really hard to tell, and it takes quite a bit of time to get into any of them deep enough to know what is for real and what isn't. I also see a lot of the "this is so EXPENSIVE" ranting when trying to find opinions or reviews of this kind of stuff. I don't quite get that - paying $50 or $100 a month for this kind of service doesn't really seem like a lot of money. Is it just that do it yourselfers on the web expect everything to be free?
Anyway - I have looked into the following:
- AppMakr: looks like they have been acquired since the last time I logged in there. Just doesn't seem professional enough or provide enough functionality.
- Map2App: I like this one - I want to like it more. A little limited, and the interface seems to lag at times, loses edits, etc. But we are seriously considering it for some client work. Really like how it is map driven. Definitely lacks in documentation.
- ShoutEm: Terrible name if you ask me, but impressive online interface. Also lacks in documentation, but seems to have the most features. I like this one a lot. >
I know there are many more - and ones that I have seen and lost bookmarks too, etc. Feel free to mention others in the comments.
