Adalo, in all probability, is the top choice when it comes to turning your mobile app concept
into a reality, without coding of course.

There must be 1000s of Adalo apps, live today. Obviously, not all are worth their salt. And, it will easily take you several hours to spot 'really' good Adalo app examples for ideas and inspiration.

Over the past two years, I have been going down the no-code rabbit hole. Have literally read 100s of blogs, listened to dozens of podcasts, and consumed tons of tutorials.

In this article, I've put together a curated list of the best Adalo app examples and answered some of the most common questions you might have about building with Adalo - to help you save those precious hours/days on research.

Here they are all in one place.

1. Scholarcash

Adalo App Examples - Scholarcash

The student loan debt crisis is looming over the world today. Wherever you go, we see young adults and middle-aged people, facing this turmoil. Scolarcash is trying to address this issue. Scolarcash, to put it simply, is an app that helps high schoolers and college-going students to find scholarships. When the pandemic hit, students, especially those belonging to the marginalised communities were severely affected. It is when the student loan crisis also became the talk of the town. This is precisely when Scholarcash came into action. They were founded in April 2020. It’s a non-profit NGO.

The app is (obviously) built on Adalo. Along with giving info about scholarships, it also helps students connect with each other. The maker, Alessandro De La Torre was able to build it in just one week. Today they have more than 20,000 downloads on the iOS App Store.

2. Counselora

Adalo App Examples - Counselora

Couselora, as the name suggests, is an app built specifically for school counsellors to help them save, organise, and find all their resources at one place. This app is an add on to Counselora's existing business and is totally free to use. There are over 200 resources available within the app. Counsellors can also use this mobile app to connect and interact with each other. There are features to help them organise counselling plans. Already, more than 750 school counsellors are using this app.

With Adalo, Benjamin, the creator of this app was able to fast track the app production from several months to only a few weeks. This is precisely the reason why so many makers today are choosing no-code over traditional coding route.

Peculiar Yogi

Peculiar Yogi is built to make yoga class booking—both offline and online—easier. They aim to make this process easier. Making bookings through an app is much more convenient, especially with the younger crowd. The app is created to resolve the demand that was echoed in the student crowd.

The founder wanted to meet the growing demands from the customer base as soon as possible. Developing apps the traditional way would have taken months and months to learn and build. Adalo came to their rescue! With the learning curve being almost negligent, the powerful tool was able to fully cater to their needs. In just one month, Peculiar Yogi was able to come up with an app. The helpful Adalo community, forums, and support also played a huge role in Peculiar Yogi’s decision to choose Adalo over other no-code builders.

It offers a platform to design and host websites and applications that include databases, workflow actions, and integrations.

What I can't build with Adalo?

Things get tricky when you want to build very complex apps that require functionalities like progressive customer profiling, full control or complete design customization, responsive web app design, etc. It’s good to get the MVP out and maybe scale up too, but only as long as you are not adding too many complexities in terms of features and functionalities.

Can my Adalo App scale?

Yes, Adalo allows scalability of great range. Being on AWS gives them the power to manage huge and uneven loads. No matter how large you want to scale, Adalo will be able to power you.

They are working on many projects to build apps that perform better. You can find Adalo’s updates on these projects here.

Where can I learn "how to build apps on Adalo"?

Adalo can be fully self-taught. For starters, Adalo’s own learning resources are more than enough. Their tutorials can be found here. Makerpad also has a bunch of Adalo tutorials.

How long will it take me to learn Adalo?

Again, like they claim - "If you can make a slide deck, you can make an app!"

Adalo is quite easy to learn and shouldn’t take more than a day or two to get a good hang of the platform. Building and publishing an app using Adalo usually takes 6-12 weeks.
