Tips and Tools for Building a Successful Business50+ High-Profit Side Hustles 🤑hi.switchy.io/Bh6oNo Code Trends Report 2022 📈hi.switchy.io/Bkmu
What's up Doc, First of all thank you for the great content like always. I was wondering if I could create an app with no-code that can connect with an external wireless device via bluetooth to measure (heat, distance etc) Flutterflow or Alado?
@Vulva Ether no problem!
@Doc Williams Thank you Doc
Hey glad you're liking the content! Hmm that's a really good question.Out of the two platforms, FlutterFlow will be the way to go for that for sure. It depends on the exact functionality you need but it sounds like webhooks or APIs would need to be involved with this.It depends on your experience level but you would prob need to use some integration with APIs. I would prob look into IFTTT and Nodered as well.Hope that helps!
I think your videos were some of/ if not the first that I came across months ago when I started looking at nocode. And I chose Flutterflow over Adalo. One of the first issues is I don't know what language Adalo uses in the backend, which means I'd probably be stuck in their system forever, so scalability was the issue.Flutterflow on the other hand uses Flutter. Simple, straight to the point.My experience has been mostly good but my thoughts are:1. Don't design in Flutterflow. Design/ prototype in figma, etc. know what exactly you want to build and execute it there. You'll save yourself a lot of time. Trust me on this. 2. The documentation isn't terrible if you like reading. But they could've had wayyyy more success if they had better Clip-Share tutorials. Explaining WHY instead of... Just drag this here and you're done 🙄. The earlier videos just expected you to know, rather than spoonfeeding you. This is a column this is how it works, this is why you want to use a column instead of a row. Now if you want to create something like this, use the knowledge you just learned to see how easy it is. They didn't take that approach and I personally think they failed in that area, esp for a new tool. You can tell it's a small team, but they can & need to do better/ more content.3. I think Adalo's 50 records is trash when you compare that to Firebase. I could be wrong but idk. Maybe the integration is better.4. I've also seen the comments on Adalo being slow so I wouldn't even bother wasting my time with that.Overall I think nocode requires you to know what you're doing. Having zero experience in database design, UI/UX, etc.. it's not there yet. And I also think most Clip-Share programmers try to save time by writing less code... With nocode you can do almost anything with very little consequence and not worry about the underlying code. I think the approach going forward should be, "we're going to create this screen from a mock-up/ prototype, it's looks complex but is super easy when you know what to look for, here is a column, this is a row, button, stack." When people get super comfortable with designing then you start introducing the complex stuff.. not everyone knows their way around GitHub, APIs, custom functions, etc. And while they don't need to go super in-depth, they do need to show/ explain WHY they're doing any of this stuff and why it matters
@Hary Das Cuellar No. You'd have to recreate the design in Flutterflow
@#TeamFlash the 100% design I make in figma. can I bring it to flutter flow?
@Hary Das Cuellar because figma is sorta like a blank canvas. You can move elements around, redesign stuff quickly. And Flutterflow is when you decide to build the actual product.In the earlier versions of Flutterflow you couldn't drag and drop anywhere on the screen it had to follow certain rules. Still does but it's not the tool you'd want to waste time in perfecting the layout of your app.
why are you saying its better to design in figma instead of doing it on flutterflow, i'm a beggineer
hi may I ask how's the performance? Are you satisfied with the performance? In scale of 1-10 how would you rate the performance. My main concern is performance
Hey Doc! Thanks for the highly knowledgeable content again....just a humble request to you....please make a video on the new entrant tool in the field of no code, called APPSMITH....it is developed in my country India....but the way it operates seems little bit complicated....i would love to know ur opinion on this tool and if possible make a review of it to breakdown things about how the tool operates in a way that beginners or non tech guys can understand, which you usually do....thanks in advance
Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into it and see if I can add it as a future video. Thanks so much!
Hi, thank you for the information. I'm very new to this and I've started creating my app on Balsamiq wireframes and now I've built it out on Figma. I'm just learning about "no code app builders". What I'm putting together is that I should halt finalizing on Figma and just start over in Flutter Flow, so that I can begin my user testing?
@Christina Velasquez exactly!
Hi, I have not validated my idea yet. So last night I created the landing page for the smoke test. I think what your getting at is make sure this idea is validated then switch to flutter flow?
No problem welcome! Depends on where you are in the process. It would be more seamless if you start with a platform like Flutterflow but have you validated your idea already?I ask because you might be able to validate first with figma and shift over after. Hope that makes sense, please ask more questions or let me know where you are in the process
Hi Doc, really appreciate your high-value content! what no-code tool would you recommend using to build a Depop clone mobile app? it would be preferable to build the MVP and scale within the same platform noting I don't have a coding background and don't want a significant time gap between MVP and the final product...
Hey glad you're liking the content! I would prob go with sharetribe go and then transition to Sharetribe Flex to scale. If you want to try it out here's the link www.sharetribe.com/?rfsn=5288964.5990a1 (this is my affiliate link)
Hey, Doc I've been designing and managing my own Long distance learning app. I started designing in photoshop, then pulled all the screens into invision, I then outsourced an android development team, the app crashed on my server and a lot of data was wiped out. now am starting over and want to do it by myself but I am not a coder. I want to try building my long-distance learning app using a none coder, flutter flow looks interesting and I would want to deploy it on ios and android stores. what would you suggest to work with as none coder?
@Doc Williams Hi Doc did you get my recent, message?
Hey great question! It all depends on the exact features of the app.Hearing about a learning app it depends if you need quizzes etc. Also depends what stage are you in. ARe you validating your idea or already have students and need to streamline what you're using.One more thought is have you already tried using a LMS (Learning Management System) like Podia or Teachable prior to needing to build an app from scratch.Hope that helps!
Hi Doc! Love your videos. I’m trying to build an app that matches a person’s interests with locations around them. Which no code builder should I use?
Hey thanks! Glad they are helpful! Based on that feature you can that with any platform that allows for database relationships. That can be done with flutterflow, adalo, glide apps, softr etc.Depends on the exact functionality you want for the app but I would prob go with Glide Apps www.glideapps.com/ to start with. If there are other features to consider please let me know. Take care!
Exporting code puts Flutter flow waaaaaaaay ahead of other nocode platforms.
Hi Doc, Love, love, love your videos. I've been researching one question for months, and I'd be SO grateful for your guidance. I want to no-code develop a mildly complex trivia game app and I don't know which development platform to use. Think a simple trivia game, not graphics intensive at all, but with the following complexity: determining winners and losers (time to answer, correct answer, and the possible number of winners (there can be more than one per round, depending on the number of players),grouping players on a first-in, first-grouped sets of players per round, andthe number of points added, or lost by winner(s) and losers, respectively.
@Brian Murphy No problem!
@Brian Murphy no problem!
@Doc Williams Thanks, Doc!
Hey Brian glad to help!Hmm for that type I would prob go with Bubble. Although not usually made for games the logic of what you want can be accomplished by Bubble.The second option that I might explore because they have a game engine would be buildbox- signup.buildbox.com/Hope that helps. Take care!
Hi Doc, thanks so much for this video! I built my MVP on Wix and will develop it further on Flutter after I test it to validate my idea 🙏
Love it! Hope all goes well! Keep me posted on your progress
This was very helpful to decide which framework to use. Thank you!
Glad it was helpful!
Hi Doc! Amazing Videos, thank you for tour insights. I would like to build a similar app just like "Motivation" or basically an app, where you can get templates, Ideas at somepoint video explanations etc. Which App would you recommend? Thanks again!
Thanks for the comment! I just did two interviews with startups and agencies that have used both and the factors for transitioning.
Hey KD great question! I would prob go with FlutterFlow with that idea.Keep me posted on your progress!
The whole Adalo vs Flutterflow isn't even a question anymore. You should choose Flutterflow any day of the week. As someone who was using Adalo for over a year, stay clear of it. It's got bad performance and a terrible new pricing structure. You are unable to scale if you app becomes successful on Adalo.
could you do a comparison video between bubble and flutterflow? both seemed so similar in many ways and its hard to choose between the two! could u do a video on their scalability as well when transacting 1,000 -> 100,000 data?
@wicleansoon wicleansoon Sure thing!
@Doc Williams that was quick! thank u for the quick response!
Just came out with that today! Check it out here: clip-share.net/video/Xn1l-XJ3c1k/video.html
FlutterFlow I even didn't know it existed! I tried to learn some code with no success in the last month. Gold for me! thanks man, you deserve a Like and my Sub :)
Glad I could help! Hope your project/idea goes well!
Hey doc, great content! any chance you could do a video on creating a sports news feed app? Also any chance I could consult with you on how much this would cost as a project you’d take on? Thanks
@pops sinor sounds good! It could be done with fluttler flow but for livestreaming it would be like youtube live etc or if you want to host the video you’ll need something like google cloud platform or AWS and you’ll need a developer for that.If you want a fully no code platform to livestream I would check out Teyuto or Uscreen.Take care!
Hey Doc, thanks for the reply and the link to contact you. Much appreciated. Atm I’m simply first trying to understand and learn what’s involved and the tech that would go behind an app that would give you end of game sports scores and also have sports news feeds from a provider.
Hey great question! I'll put it on the list of potential videos in the future. You're looking for an app that updates the score of a particular sport regarding the results or play by play? Currently I'm only taking clients that are building start ups and scaling. If that fits your situation here's a link for a paid planning session to review the scope of your app and execution. Here's the link to book- bookme.name/brandfactoryinc/lite/blueprint-for-building-your-ideaLet me know if you have any questions!
Hello, thank you for all the helpful videos. I am new to no code app builders. What I want to build is a language learning (English for now) mobile application, however I am not sure which platform is most helpful if I want to create such application. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you
@Doc Williams thank you for the suggestion. Do you know if Glide supports video or not? I read on stack overflow that it doesn’t. It only supports gifs. Can I embed a video / audio on Glide? Thank you
@Kaveh Ekbia yup I would go with Glide Apps- www.glideapps.com/Hope that helps take care!
@Kaveh Ekbia thanks for the details! You could do that with Glide Apps www.glideapps.com/Each platform are usually great for one type- audio, video etc. Hope that helps take care!
@I am wondering if you still have a recommendation on what software to use based on the description I provided below? Thank you 🙏🏻
@Doc Williams The app that I want to create will be mobile app
hi,, Thanks for the clear explanation.I am studying Adalo. How can I connect a Bluetooth device such as the HC-06 with Adalo?
Hey thanks for stopping by! At this moment I don't believe it is possible to integrate with bluetooth. I would reach out to Adalo for more clarification.
Hello Doc, which noncoder platform can one use to create a ride sharing and courier activity from one city to another app?
@Wnet 24 feel free to email at email@example.com but it's regarding consulting for planning your app or business I have a booking link here- bookme.name/brandfactoryinc/lite/blueprint-for-building-your-ideaThanks!
@Doc Williams thanks for your reply. is there a way i can contact you directly?
Great question! Depends on your skill level and where you currently are.For example if I'm testing my idea and at a MVP I would use Glide. If I have tested it and started getting the traction I would go with Bubble zeroqode.com/template/ridely---taxi-ride-sharing-like-uber-template-1501857279453x140151737882509310Hope that helps and keep me posted!
The Only down side of flutter flow is their Auth system is tied to Firebase which means you can't use your own backend unfortunately.
Thank you so much for the content, it really helps🙏🙏
No problem! Glad it was helpful!
GREAT video. Thank you. Can I 'export' from Adalo and then 'import' into Flutterflow?
@Doc Williams copy that. THANKS for the reply. Thrilled I found your channel. All the best.
No problem! Great question!At this time you cannot export an app from Adalo
Hi doc..so I would like to know your opinion for my side project. It's a fitness app dedicate for a coach and his clients. I've already done most of the job on Adalo...but seeing the boundaries. Is flutterflow more adapted ? I have to deal with a lot a data. Because there are personal (and didated programs for each clients) in which there is the exercices...(Sry for my english lol). Have a great day
For fitness app I tend not to use Adalo but depends on the key features the client needs.
No problem! This depends on the key features your trainer needs. In general FlutterFlow might be a better fit with the amount data and features.
hey doc. trying to build a dating/matching site for musicians. i am finding this is one of the tougher apps to build. any ideas for what i should choose? im a designer by trade so i'm thinking flutterflow or appgyver. which one?
@Kendra Gaines no problem! I would first buy a template and use Glide Apps to validate my idea with my audience and then when I want to scale use FlutterFlow.Here is the link for Glide-www.glideapps.com/templates. I would look for a dating template, focus on one key goal with the test and see what my audience wants. Hope that helps take care!
@Doc Williams thanks for the reply. I haven't test yet so what do you suggest instead?
Hey Kendra!Great question! This depends if you're doing this a test or trying to scale. If you have tested your idea and attempting to scale I would use flutterflow.
I have a language app idea which has stemmed from the mountain or flaws and errors with current language apps, Duolingo being no exception. I just cannot decide whether to go with Adalo or Flutter. 😫
hey great idea! depends on your current skill level and how much you validated your idea to get revenue from your audience. Could be Adalo to test your idea or to scale FF would be a good solution. Hope that helps take care!
Great video! Subscribed!! I want to make an App that advertises for participating restaurants, bars, etc. The front page will advertise content for these places. The user will have the option to then click, order, & reserve a seat before getting there. Like a Grubhub or Doordash but in reverse. Does this make since? Can you please tell me what template I would start with? Thank you!
Hey Joe! Welcome to the channel! This depends on the exact functionality you need like how it connects to their inventory. Does the restaurants all get instantly get paid etc.In general it would something like Glide apps to test the idea.FlutterFlow would be prob be the one I would go to advance the idea but would take more time to initially build out.Hope that helps!
Hey Doc, what would you recommend for a free app, with several countdown timers to events ? with adds for revenue.
@Doc Williams Thank you very much =)
@Kegle gotcha ok in that case I would go with flutterflow
@Doc Williams I think native, events are weekly basis, so cycle through. could be 1. Event 1: starts every thursday at 1pm to 3pm, then again, at 5pm to 7pm. So basically showing a countdown timer for when the event starts, and perhaps change color while the event is ongoing, with time remaining, and back to normal countdown when the event is over.
Great question! Depends if you're need a native or web app
I'm looking to build a service ranking platform like upwork / fiverr etc. but without the payments system. I just want paid memberships, rankings and reviews. What platform would you recommend?
I would prob go with Sharetribe Go to start with and then shift to the Sharetribe Flex plan for that.
I want to create a point of sales, any suggestions for the best tool? (offline mode would be a nice but not necessary feature)
Hey great question! This depends on what you want for POS. Are you looking to build a platform with an integration with Stripe or another payment processor?
Thanks for the infos Doc. My question is: If I get the Pro Plan of Adolo and I finish the app and publish it in the first month, the app remains on Play and App Store even if i suspend the payed subscription? What i loose in this case? Thanks so much!
@Doc Williams you are great, manny thanks!!
Hey Arden great question! That's a great question! I don't know the exact answer to that after searching Adalo's forums. I would reach out to their support for more clarifaction on that.
Hi,i plan to make a learning app where users can learn various language components( say Idioms) by video bytes and subsequent text examples. I would like this to be in different languages. Beside this the app will have a test their skills section where they can attempt questions.1. I want to test my idea by looking at the downloads2. See how many users are willing to pay 3. Identify advertising revenue model
@Curious Bean Yup I would use FlutterFlow for that. It depends on the exact features you need but you could create a V1 for your idea. I would really focus on one key feature you want in the app to begin. Hope that helps take care!
@Doc Williams In your opinion, would Flutterflow suffice for the MVP ?
Love to hear it! I would prob target specific groups from redditt or quora to get traction even more than just looking at the numbers in the app store.Because there is a lot competition to launch in the appstore you need a community promoting it for the best results.Hope all goes well on your journey!
Hi Doc what platform can I use for a real estate app and a tinder like app?
Hey Dave great question! Depends if you have validated the idea with customers yet or if it's a proven profitable venture. Also depends on the exact functionality of Tinder. For example, just the swiping style or you need advanced analytics to track what people swipe and change based on analytics, etc.Validating I would go with Glide Apps. Proven and ready to run, FlutterFlow.
Sup doc which would you suggest out of the two to build a content-streaming app say for animations
Depends on the exact functionality you need but prob Teyuto teyuto.com/or Uscreen www.uscreen.tv/?via=doc (affiliate link)
hello, i am building a marketplace app like etsy, i am like half way done building it in Adalo. Now i am having doubts concerning the functionality, app speed. what do you think should I go ahead test my idea with Adalo and then later switch to flutter flow? or is adalo competant enough to handle marketplace 10k to 50k daily users? thanks would appreciate your insight.
@R k yup sounds good!
@Doc Williams sharetribe flex might not work cause i don't know how to code properly but maybe after i am done with adalo then i can switch to flutterFlow?
Hey great question!If you're just starting without any customers or sales I would use Adalo stlll.If you're looking at a marketplace 10k to 50k daily users I would really take a look at Sharetribe Flex which is made for marketplaces or FlutterFlow.Hope that helps! Let me know if you have more questions.
Hey Doc i want to create a Netflix replica, I estimated about five hundred users will use it. So I don't really know which noncoding app builder to use. Which one would you suggest?
@Madikologa Moeti no problem! Hope all goes well with your business and project
@Doc Williams thank you so much👍🏽
Hey great question! This depends on your budget and functionality you want. In general,I would go with Teyuto teyuto.com/Take care!
Could you make a video on the most affordable no-code app builder
Hey great question! Check out the video how to build an app five different ways for free- clip-share.net/video/dyCXtdHUyrk/video.html
Hi what would you recommend for creating an app that can build example drag and drop information to build lesson plans and other educational reports ?
Also as it relates to education. It will take time to build. And I need to be guided in the right direction to start building it. I'm a teacher as well.
@Doc Williams thank you so much for accommodating me. This is the idea phase and I would like to make it or turn it into a service business to get paying customers. Do you have a Facebook page in case I have more questions to ask privately please. Lol I don't want someone else snapping up my ideas 💡 lol
@120paj ok that changes things. Before I give you a few options is this in the idea phase or do you have paying customers for your idea?
@Doc Williams I would like clients to access lesson templates to create or customize their lessons from the platform
@120paj are you asking having if the platform will allow other users it for lesson planning or only yourself using drag and drop?
Doc, great info man! I clicked your coaching program link, but it doesn't work...let's talk!
Hey Don! Sorry about that! Sounds great!Here you go- bfcoaching.paperform.co/If you have questions message me- firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking to build a fintech app, where should I go for that?
I would go with FlutterFlow. Are you asking regarding the training or expertise to be able to build it?
Can the app you make here be used on either iOS or android?
Great question! Depends on which platform you’re referring to. Check their pricing page for more details.
Hi , would like to create a marketplace app for consumers to buy, sell or trade. May I know which app do you recommend?
@Doc Williams thanks for replying. How about adalo?
Great question! This depends if you're validating your idea and scaling.If I'm testing the idea I would go for Softr or FlutterFlow. If I was scaling I would use Sharetribe.
both looks good if you're pretty new to it
Yeah both can be super helpful!
I want my adobe xd designs to convert them into flutter code pls help, firstly i want to design the flutter ui for web etc. I have been given adobe xd design links. pls help
Hey Shravan! Great question! You’re not going to be able to directly integrate with adobe xd and use them in FlutterFlow.But similar how people use Figma with the exact dimensions they want and replicate the layout in FlutterFlow
After making your app do you still pay the subscription?
@I AM CHIDERA no problem! Hope your project goes well!
@Doc Williams thank you ☺️
Great question! For Adalo yes for sure. Flutterflow you pay as long as your using their platform but Flutterflow allows you to export your app so you could stop paying after constructing it but it would be more of an option if you have a fulltime developer.Hope that helps!
I want to build On demand service Providing app with multi vendor and e-commerce feature but how to manage backend in that case can put some lights on it please?
Hey great question! Sounds like you are planning to create a marketplace.If that sounds right I would look at my content about how to build a marketplace with sharetribe or softr.Hope that helps take care!clip-share.net/video/bsHAy89Cd8c/video.htmlclip-share.net/video/l09uvaDcFKg/video.htmlclip-share.net/video/ESYniA9hcII/video.html
Hi Doc. I want to build an App that can upload videos, posts, and photos, have an inbox, and be able to do live videos and live audio, be able to edit and delete a post. Will you help me find an App that can help me achieve this. Much love from South Africa.
@Thokozani Nkosi No problem, many of these functionalities will be in our mobile app we're building on FF so I understand.
@Queer N' Cool Thank you so much🙏🏾, I will definitely check it out.
@Thokozani Nkosi FlutterFlow allows that.
@Doc Williams Hey, sorry for the late response. I don't have a paying audience yet. It's a social media App like Facebook, Twitter, IG, etc. I showed a couple of people the prototype I did with Adalo but that only uploads pictures, if I can get an App that would have all or most of the features I need I'd be pleased.
Hey great question! This depends on where you are with validating your idea.DO you have a paying audience yet? Are you doing this for your community or a paying client? Tell me more.Thanks!
can you use it to create dating app?
Yes but Depends on the exact functionality you want it in
20 gb don't sound like enough for a solid marketplace app maybe 500 gbs
@Doc Williams any website builders that have unlimited storage? For the hosting I mean. Could host my own but is it really worth it when I'm not a tech guy and would have to hire?
Hey Tim! I agree that it wouldn't be great for a scaling marketplace but if a creator is validating their idea I could see it having a place but in general if I'm building a marketplace I would go with Sharetribe.www.sharetribe.com/?rfsn=5288964.5990a1 (affiliate link)
I want to build a fake parody app that I can use on my phone in videos. So something that looks real and operational but has no actual functionality.

Can I build uberclone using flutterflow
Depends on the exact features you would be yes that's possible with Flutterflow.
Which platform has better customer support?
@Noah Blackhurst no problem glad to help!
@Doc Williams thank you very much! And thanks for the video, this was very helpful.
Great question! I would go with FlutterFlow
Thank you so much 😀
Im trying to make a grocery delivery app for my store.
@Doc Williams Doc is the best! That's why you control the board Captain. Thanks a million, please keep doing what you are doing. P S, my skill level is "just started today"
Depends on the exact features you need but prob I would suggest Flutterflow between the two but depends on your current skill level and features you need.
can you explain how tomake classified app plz
Thanks and I appreciate you sharing this knowledge
Hey great request!Depends on the functionality but it can done with Softr or Glide apps. THey already have templates you can use for classifieds.If we get a lot of interest in the next poll for building I'll do it live on stream.Thanks!
I want to build a grocery delivery app...
Goodtimes! Love the idea! What stage you currently in? Do you have the clients or the businesses yet?Or are you currently grocery store owner?

app like uber
not available in Africa ? i got "user not authorised" error
@Doc Williams its ok now, thanks
@Samuel Joseph - Bitcoin regarding the error message I would replay with the error and describe the action you're taking. For example- community.flutterflow.io/c/discuss-and-get-help/firebase_storage-unauthorized
@Samuel Joseph - Bitcoin I haven't seen any evidence that it's not available in Africa.I would reach out to FlutterFlow for further information- email@example.com
@Doc Williams Flutter flow
Hey Samuel! What platform are you referring to? In general both platforms should work. I would reach out their support to confirm
