Transform your business by creating custom business apps with Microsoft PowerApps. Connect data from the cloud and make your own app - no coding required.

The best Microsoft PowerApps alternatives:



Xamarin



We created Xamarin because we knew there had to be a better way – a better way to design apps, to develop apps, to integrate apps, to test apps and more. We’re developers, so we know what developers want from mobile app development software: a modern programming language, code sharing across all platforms, prebuilt backend connectors and no-compromise native user interfaces.

Parse



The complete mobile app platform. Focus on creating unique & engaging apps on any platform. We take care of everything else your app needs, from the core of your app to analytics and push notifications.

Appcelerator



Speed time to market with native cross-platform app development & testing, simplified access to data via mobile-optimized APIs, and comprehensive real-time mobile analytics to power user engagement and measure success.

2016. Microsoft launched its no-coding app builder



Microsoft opened the new service PowerApps that allows anybody to build basic business apps without having to touch any code. These apps can run on the web and on mobile (through the PowerApps apps for iOS and Android).  Building apps in PowerApps is mostly a drag-and-drop affair. While the service offers an online dashboard, the design work happens in a Windows 10 desktop app. It also offers a number of templates for a couple of standard use cases. For the most part, though, building new apps from scratch is pretty straightforward — though maybe not quite as trivial as Microsoft’s marketing wants to make it look.
