9 No-Code Tools You should definitely try in 2022 🔥💯

Introduction

The world around us is changing, and the way we do things has to change with it. In this case, writing code—and doing so more efficiently than ever before—has become much simpler, thanks to the plethora of no-code and low-code tools available on the market. No-code development platforms and low-code development platforms are similar in that they both drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to create an application. Unlike low-code, no-code development platforms don't require any coding—they offer predesigned templates from which businesses can build apps. As companies deal with the parallel trends of an increasingly mobile workforce and a limited supply of competent software developers, these platforms have both increased in popularity.

Popularity and the rise of no-code tools

No-code tools have become increasingly popular, and thanks to this there are many options for you to choose from. No-code tools are easy to use, affordable and user-friendly. They also provide the opportunity for developers who are new to coding or those who have limited experience in building websites or apps on their own.

No code tools

No-code doesn't mean that you won't need any knowledge of coding as some might think! It simply means that you don't have to learn how everything works behind the scenes before being able to build something yourself with no prior experience required whatsoever!

1. Google AppSheet

Google AppSheet is a web app that allows you to build a spreadsheet-based app without writing any single line of code. It's an easy-to-use tool that allows you to create and customize templates for different types of applications, including business apps, websites, and email marketing campaigns.

Google Appsheet

AppSheet also has built-in drag & drop editor so users can quickly add content from the web into their spreadsheets without having to learn how to use coding languages like HTML or JavaScript. This makes it a good choice for small businesses and startups who want something simple but powerful at their disposal when they need it most! If you're looking for a way to make an app without code, check out AppSheet. It's absolutely free(limited up to 10 users)!

2. Zapier

Zapier is a workflow automation tool that connects the apps you use. It allows you to automate repetitive tasks, and it's free for up to 5 zaps. Zapier provides some of the easiest ways to automate your business. You can use Zapier's simple and user-friendly interface by building automated workflows between apps like Gmail or Slack that allow you to perform complex actions across multiple platforms without writing any code by yourself. For example, with one click of a button on our website, you can automatically send an email reminder when someone signs up for our newsletter using Mailchimp as well as create custom emails with the customer’s name in them!

Zapier Logo

Zapier is great because it's easy to use and has a lot of integrations with other apps, so if you're looking for something that can do more than just one thing at once, Zapier might be the right choice for you. You can connect hundreds of different apps, such as Google Sheets or Asana project management software, etc with Zapier. And because they offer both free and paid plans - starting at just $19.99 per month - there's no risk involved in trying.

Miro is a no-code platform for creating and visualizing data that can be stored in a database, spreadsheet, or third-party tool.

I have never heard someone describe Miro this way. Actually I find this description misleading. Miro is a collaboration platform for teams to work on things (i.e. brainstorming, workshops, ...). Basically what you described later on. Describing this as a No Code tool is a stretch

Appsmith is something that I've been checked out for a project that never materialized. It's a great tool for creating internal tools and it makes it possible to write custom business logic code yourself.

I would also add the Power Platform as it's evolving and growing at pace.
Love Miro but found it a little heavy and slow, whimsical.com has less features (and integrations) but great for rapid process mapping and wireframing.
