15 Powerful No-Code App Examples

Are you a solopreneur, a bootstrapped startup, or a business user looking for some inspiration to know what can be built with no-code? We've gathered 15 no-code app examples.

Table of contents

We’re living in a golden age of software development, at least in terms of the accessibility aspect. While in the past you’d need extensive education and training to make even the most basic application, the rise of no-code and low-code tools means that almost anyone with a good idea for a project can get it off the ground, so long as they put in the hard work.

To show what’s possible, let’s talk about a few of the best examples of web apps that have been made using tools that don’t require you to be a coding whiz-kid to make the most of them.

15 Powerful No-Code App Examples

1. MyHabeats

First up, it’s worth discussing MyHabeats, an example of a powerful and seriously specialized app made using the Allcancode platform.

This is a tool targeted at patients who have just undergone surgery for obesity, and require strict guidance on how to handle their diet in the weeks and months following the procedure.

It is self-described as a behavioral vaccine app, meaning users are inoculated against bad habits by its routine-forming functionality. It encourages them to build and stick to healthy eating habits, and to adhere to the lifestyle changes that are necessary to keep weight off.

With a beautiful and intuitive interface, attractive graphic design elements and iconography, as well as well-obscured analytical underpinnings, it really shows what can be achieved using no-code and low-code development pipelines.

  • No-code tools used: Allcancode
  • Build Time: 12-15 Weeks

2. Love Island

As an internationally adored TV format, it’s no surprise that Love Island also has an associated mobile app to engage viewers even further while they’re watching the contestants on-screen.

Created using Choicely, and put together by the in-house Choicely team, this app is an example of how software can do double duty, crossing boundaries and allowing for advanced interactions that go beyond the app itself.

The features include the ability to vote during the show’s weekly elimination sessions, receive news and updates on all the goings on, get biographical details about the contestants, and serve users ads that are relevant to their interests to help generate revenue from this free-to-use service.

Also included are ecommerce functions, meaning viewers can buy branded merchandise without having to browse elsewhere. With various international versions of Love Island, including Italy, Finland and Slovakia all using a Choicely-built app to support the show, it’s clear this is a compelling platform to pick.

3. Plannly

We’re all more aware of how important it is to handle workplace wellness more directly and effectively. This is what keeps employees satisfied, and ensures loyalty over time, as well as improving productivity.

That’s what Plannly sets out to achieve, as this app is finely honed via the platform Natively in order to empower HR professionals with the ability to identify and implement solutions that are suited to improving the health and happiness of team members under their care.

The idea is that the app can manage the cost of various well-known workplace wellness services, and provide packages tailored to individuals, rather than forcing every employee to adhere to the same narrow set of options.

Integration for secure payments, cross-compatibility with other apps and services like Headspace and Classpass, and an approachable interface help Plannly stand out. It’s a standard bearer for what teams can achieve using no-code tools. Combining these with graphic design-focused solutions like an advanced AI photo editor means complete novices can get a foothold in app building in a jiffy.

There is also Plannly Health, an app that deals with stress-reduction in healthcare in order to minimize the chances of human error arising in patient interactions with practitioners.

  • Founder/s: Alisha M. H.

  • Category: HR & Healthcare
  • No-code tools used: Natively
  • Build Time: 15-18 Weeks

4. BizBot

In this case, we’re looking at an app that was already in existence, so rather than being built from scratch, it was actually reconfigured and modernized using MARS, bringing the benefits of low and no-code development to an established project.

BizBot itself is intended to take the legwork out of business administration, specifically in terms of how shares and shareholders are orchestrated.

With a free version available, and a premium version priced at just under $30 a month, it’s a cost-effective option for companies that are on the grow.

Moreover it caters to a wide range of users, from investors and board members to accountants and incubators for startups.

Simplicity is key to the appeal of its interface, and with both web and mobile apps offered, there’s plenty of flexibility in terms of where and when it’s used.

  • No-code tools used: MARS
  • Build Time: 12 Weeks

5. SaaSPirate

The purpose of SaaSPirate is to provide users with a platform where they can secure lifetime access to cloud-powered software, rather than relying on recurring monthly payments to continue being able to use the tools they need.

This is achieved not through piracy, as the service name might suggest, but rather by creating a marketplace for offers and deals which are sourced directly from software providers, with no middlemen in the way taking a cut.

Founder Alston Antony explained that he and his team chose to use Gappsy to create applications thanks to the drag-and-drop functionality it offers, as well as the benefits of not requiring any specific decision-making regarding things like coding languages.

The result is that SaaSPirate is able to serve its thousands upon thousands of visitors and entrepreneurial users with up-to-the-minute deals on remotely hosted software, delivering value without the overheads. With lifetime software access starting from as little as $20, it’s clear why this service is in demand.

  • No-code tools used: Gappsy
  • Build Time: 4 Weeks

6. Miss Universe

The globally successful Miss Universe competition is slap bang up to date with the digital age thanks to its very own application. Like Love Island, this widely broadcast event received an app courtesy of the Choicely development platform, which was originally launched in the spring of 2021, and has since received over 3 million downloads.

The app itself was available on the official website of the competition, as well as having specific mobile versions for iOS and Android. The result was that more people than ever were able to place votes to support participants in Miss Universe, as well as accessing all sorts of other juicy tidbits and features along the way.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, other competitions in the same category, such as Miss USA and Miss England to name but two, have also benefited from Choicely-derived apps to bolster audience engagement, sell merchandise and much more besides.

7. Tezfly

There are plenty of travel apps out there, and more than a few which intend to help users get good deals on flights. However, since this is such a massive market, there’s always room for newcomers to disrupt the norm and carve out a niche of their own.

That’s what inspired the development of Tezfly, an app that lets you search for flights from hundreds of airlines, compare prices on tickets, and book a flight in-app without needing to go anywhere else.

As you’d expect, this is an app that doesn’t cost users a penny to download, and instead the revenue it generates for its developers comes from the commission paid by airlines and resellers to offer up their tickets.

With in excess of 700 airlines represented, it’s a compelling place to get a good deal, and the fact that all this was built using Natively makes it even more impressive. It shows that you don’t need to know how to code to get in on this growing sector.

  • Founder/s: Coskun Aksu
  • Website: https://www.tezfly.com/
  • Category: Travel
  • No-code tools used: Natively
  • Build Time: 12-15 Weeks

8. WeHive

In terms of speedy development time, it’s tough to top WeHive. The team behind it took just 30 hours to transform the on-paper idea to a functional prototype. All of this was made possible thanks to Dittofi, the no-code platform that was selected for this purpose.

This business-focused social media service took advantage of various Dittofi-supported features, such as the ability to create a custom user interface inspired by the hive structure of its namesake, as well as integrated real-time messaging so that users can communicate with one another in-app.

Other supported functions include live streaming, meeting room booking, and even built-in offers for third party platforms, including Google Cloud and AWS. This is where the app’s creators are able to generate revenue, since the app itself is free to download.

  • Website: App Download
  • Category: Social Media & Productivity
  • No-code tools used: Dittofi
  • Build Time: 4-8 Weeks

9. Box Express

This Costa Rica-based logistics brand is well known in its domestic market for providing exceptional delivery services across everything from fast food to consumer goods and beyond.

In order to meet changing demands from its customer base, it turned to no-code app builder Appy Pie, and put together a piece of software that could cover every aspect of its service line-up in a holistic and unified way.

Since rolling out its app, three quarters of its customer base has made the leap, adopting it in order to continue using the solutions that Box Express provides. This includes being able to schedule deliveries, track the progress of orders, and receive much-needed support from customer service team members in the event that something goes wrong.

10. PoliticalMeetings

Leveraging the benefits of Appy Pie in order to create a service that’s dedicated to overseeing the complex process of politics admin sounds like a big ask, but PoliticalMeetings.com shows that this is more than possible.

It aims to be a one-stop shop for not just finding out about the most important events in the political calendar, but also to provide users with a means to set up their own get-togethers, large and small alike, and publicize them to an innately engaged user base.

Membership is handled via a monthly subscription, with just $1.98 charged to users, half of which goes towards the app’s operators to turn a profit and pay for the upkeep of the service itself.

11. Galaxy CRM

Another example of an established app that has been expanded via no-code tools is Galaxy, which put together a CRM in a little over a month thanks to the power of Dittofi.

Customer relationship management platforms can of course be purchased off-the-peg, or integrated via third party APIs. However, the unique nature of Galaxy’s live-streaming focused sales model meant that it required a bespoke approach.

The opportunity to make a functional CRM setup using no-code tools was appealing to its founders, especially as they’d looked into other options and simply couldn’t find a good match for what they wanted to achieve.

The speed of the Dittofi development cycle sold them on the concept even further, and the finished app was launched on the 7th week of the development cycle.

  • Category: Live Streaming & Ecommerce
  • No-code tools used: Dittofi
  • Build Time: 7 Weeks

12. Washy

Car owners and fleet managers alike are often keen on keeping their vehicles looking spotless, and yet wrangling this process is not always easy, especially if more than one automobile has to be attended to month by month.

That’s where Washy comes into play, allowing users to book mobile car wash technicians with ease, and have them visit their location anywhere in the UK as needed.

As well as arranging for cleaning services for as many cars as required, it allows for on-the-fly changes to be made to future bookings, as well as enabling customers to review details of past washes while out and about.

Natively was the no-code platform selected to serve as the development environment for this app, and since its launch it has found favor with thousands of people nationally in its home country.

  • Founder/s: Unknown
  • Website: App Download
  • Category: Automotive
  • No-code tools used: Natively
  • Build Time: 8-10 Weeks

13. International Judo Federation

Tapping into Choicely’s experience with offering apps that allow for real-time user interactions in association with live broadcast events, the International Judo Federation built an app that covers scores, instant replays, move analysis and much more.

Tens of thousands of simultaneous users were supported during the World Judo Championships, held in late 2022, so it was really put through its paces. And with typical users spending 90 minutes a day interacting with the app when major tournaments are taking place, it’s clearly getting it right in terms of engagement.

In addition to live updates, the app offers in-depth access to statistics, competitor bios, and much more besides, with PDF downloads backing up the in-app functions that are available.

  • Category: Sports
  • No-code tools used: Choicely
  • Build Time: 16-20 Weeks

14. Nightingales Care Home

This example of using no-code tools to make apps in the blink of an eye really needs to be highlighted. Specifically, it took place back during the height of the pandemic, when Nightingales Care Home needed to produce a piece of software that could be used to track and monitor the self-isolation of residents and employees alike ASAP.

They turned to Softools, which allowed them to make an app to do just that in just a day, all without having to write a single line of code in-house.

Obviously this was an exceptional set of circumstances that prompted the development of this app, but it is clear that similarly swift action can be taken with low and no-code platforms in other contexts as well.

15. La Metro

Based in the French city and region of Grenoble, La Metro is a public body that deals with a variety of public works projects, and has a particular role in ensuring that clean drinking water is available to more than half a million people local to the area.

As part of its broader digital transformation efforts, it turned to Bubble as a no-code platform to build out an enterprise-scale tracking solution to back up its work in the aforementioned water provision process.

It didn’t handle the app building in-house, but rather outsourced this to an agency called Tinkso, which specializes in working with what Bubble has to offer.

Blending a full-blown web interface with a mobile-friendly equivalent, the app enables the thousands of people who work for La Metro to fulfill their duties each day, maintaining vital aspects of the infrastructure without any hold-ups.

Every intervention that a worker makes is logged in the app, so everyone is up to speed with how things stand, and it’s easier to manage everything from day to day, while also planning ahead for future spending needs.

Wrapping Up

As you can see, low and no-code app builders are brilliant whether you’re in entertainment, politics, public works, healthcare or any other conceivable industry niche or sector.

The combination of quick development cycles, exceptional integration options, and widespread support by agencies, makes the tools we’ve touched on today worth using.

So explore what’s out there for yourself, and start making something special today!
