The quickest way to get an app into a prototype stage without prior mobile dev experience.
Kommentare: It makes it easy to prototype ideas and applications for clients and build production ready apps.
Vorteile: It provides not only the skeleton but puts meat on the bones so I can quickly build a truly native app. What attracted me to Drop Source was the fact that I could download the source code for the app (Swift for iOS, Java for Android), allowing me to inspect the code, debug, and use that as the base for a fully customized app down the road. The next most important feature for me is that I can access external services via API - 3rd party services and my own API. I just create a Swagger (Open API) description file and it gets integrated into the Drop Source IDE so that it knows the API endpoints, signatures, and data types. The Drop Source team has been incredibly responsive to my queries. Finally, being able to hit the "Play" button and have it load my app in an in-browser emulator is a nice plus.
Nachteile: At the time that I'm writing this, they're just coming out of beta. As for cons, you can find yourself doing a lot of clicking to set various settings -- especially when dealing with API calls and event handling. But, that is the nature of visual designers and is to be expected. Beyond that, Drop Source has a lot of the "basics" covered when it comes to SDK coverage, but you'll want to make sure the features they offer meet your use case. Again, they are just coming out of beta and a number of features are on their road map.

Kommentare: I love the platform. It's one of the most innovative development tools rolled out since Microsoft's Visual Studio. The support is always solid and the assistance with build prep is tremendous. This product can only get better. I think Dropsource will corner the market overtime as long as they continue the push forward with feature roll outs.
Vorteile: The ease of use with the dev tools is amazing. As long as you understand basic logic flow of programming, you can build an app without any familiarity with native mobile technology. It's really quite amazing.
Nachteile: For more experienced developers, there is still a ton of functionality needed which at this time is still not available, such as dynamic cell resizing in collection views, video uploading, UI position locking, and undo functionality to name a few. Hopefully these things will come in time.

Working with the Dropsource team and product has been, easy, productive and generated the results.
Kommentare: Limited barrier to entry - cost. I did not have to hire a programmer (or two programmers) to design and code the application in the various development environments (xcode + Android Studio). Speed to Market. I was able to very quickly iterate on design and functionality in the Dropsource platform and test almost immediately on my hardware or via their web interface.
Vorteile: Developing a cross-platform mobile app (Android + iOS) did not require me to learn xcode and Android studio in depth to get a minimum viable product. A common interface for developing screens, an infrastructure for testing without having to always download and compile to test on a physical device increased time to market and productivity. The Dropsource team was always there (including nights and weekends) to assist with any questions.
Nachteile: I had the opportunity to work with the Dropsource team as a beta customer - so I, along with the team, experienced some of the growing pains as the product matured. There were some aspects of how the product was implemented or behaved that were either not intuitive and/or not well documented. However, the Dropsource team was always available ready to answer questions or address platform issues. Documentation of features has improved tremendously as Dropsource has moved from beta to production.

The only NATIVE app development solution out there in the market!
Vorteile: If you are not experienced with coding, but need to have an app developed, this is the most effective way to get it done. There are other alternatives, but thanks to this service you can create an app from scratch, design and functionality is your creation, not limited to awful templates full of branding like other services.
Nachteile: You can build tiny apps, without too much functionality, very quickly. However, when your app becomes a bit more complicated, as Dropsource is yet a recently launched service, bugs start appearing, and you depend too much on the dev team. Hopefully they are always willing to help, but that's time you lose. The other is pricing, this service is just limited to apps with lots of functionalities, but sometimes your customer only want a simple app with two tabs, not "the next great app out there in the market" and price is not really accurate in that case.

Dropsource's customer service is second to none and the tool is easy to use even for a non-dev
Kommentare: Ability to directly build a native app without explaining to a dev team what I needed. This means our startup (without developers) can launch and validate a MVP very quickly
Vorteile: Once you have learnt the basics of the tool it is very fast to build, test and deploy. I have made enhancements to backend database design, updated swagger API file and implemented new functionality in my app in less than 15 min. Then build, deploy to my iPhone and test in another 10 minutes. All done by non-programmer, amazing. I love it.
Nachteile: It was missing some functionality to integrate with my backend database/app but after explaining why this was so important for my app the Dropsource team quickly committed that they would enhance their product. This was then available in the next release cycle which was less than 3 weeks from request. Their customer service team is very responive.
