No-Code Wiki (BETA): Bubble Review
What You Need To Know
Get Real, Honest Maker Commentary
Bubble is a heavy weight no code tool that lets you build complex web applications. It’s much heavier to use and larger ramp up to learn. I haven’t launched an app with Bubble nor done more than experiment with the app builder. But it reminds me of something like Webflow and Photoshop as far as technical feasibility and power. Below are some key insights from Maker’s who have already made and launched with bubble.
If you are already past the experimenting stage and have great user feedback, you may want to consider sinking your time into a solution like this. If you’re still trying to figure out what it is your concept is and if users even want it, I would try to build it with easier to use no code tools. Because that means faster making and launching. Which will allow you to validate your concept.
When you are making new things, the key is to make something quickly and low fidelity to get feedback as fast as possible so you know if you are headed in the right direction or not.
Below are some of the best no code actual applications created by some insanely talented Makers who launched using Bubble as part of the side project stack.

"In Their Words" No Code Maker Commentary and Reviews
+ The most robust and customizable no-code app maker I have ever come across. You can implement HTML, JS and CSS on any element and whenever you want.
+ The extensive amount of plugins is insane and building a plugin is also a breeze.
+You can build your own API calls to extract data or implement an action on Bubble.
+ There is a very strong and helpful community on the forum.
-Performance is the worst among all tools. Database calls are super slow and API calls cannot be made synchronous often leading to API errors as it is dependent on a database item which is still in the creation process. Increasing processing units doesn’t help a lot unless you increase by a lot which makes it not economical.
-Making a good UI is a hassle and needs a good designer to support you. Making the pages responsive sometimes takes as much time as building the frontend and its workflows.
