Softr helps you take action on your ideas quickly by allowing you to leverage your Airtable data and build powerful websites and web apps. I was blown away by how user-friendly and well-documented the entire product was! I was able to create an app within hours without any external help.

Softr’s ease and speed of use is it’s standout characteristic. No tool is faster to create with. Although there is limited design customizability, this should be viewed as a strength of Softr as it acts as a positive restraint to help you ship things more quickly than you ordinarily would.

I have been impressed with the flexibility of Softr. The ability to pull data from different Airtable bases into different blocks and display them on one page was one of the main reasons I chose Softr.

I had already tried other tools, so when I started using Softr, it was clear immediately that the capabilities were beyond what I found elsewhere.

They say that if you can’t explain it in a simple way, you don’t understand it well enough. I say the same thing about any software. If you can’t figure it out in the first 10 min by yourself without any tutorial, it’s probably not for you. Since the first moment we discovered Softr, we started the work.
Akiki RachidCOO, Bookzdoctr Inc
It took me one day to build the product, learn the integrations, and see how the customer service acts. I was completely flashed that it is so easy, and that everything is working really well. So, I quickly decided 3 weeks later to set up our main page and transferred it to Softr.

As a small business, we needed to use a tool that could grow with us, and we feel that this is what Softr offers us. After wasting time and money trying every web builder under the sun, Softr came to save the day. We cannot recommend this platform enough – it's perfect, easy to use even for a non-technical person like me.

I like the diversity of templates that are available and the thoughtfulness that has been taken in making the building process as simple as possible for non-coders.

I used Softr to build the MVP for my company www.tallsize.com.When I discovered how easy it was to use Softr to create a frontend interface for our users, my mind was blown!!! It was so easy to set up that I literally launched my site in a single weekend. Their support team was incredible throughout this journey and the ability to customize everything the way I wanted was very intuitive and easy to accomplish.

With Softr, I’m able to create beautifully intuitive and responsive front-ends that integrate directly with Airtable and Stripe. Softr allows me to create and iterate at least twice as fast as traditional web platforms.

Frequently Asked Questions about Progressive Web Apps
A PWA is an application that can be installed on any decide in a few simple steps. PWAs can work on any platform through a browser and are supported for both desktop and mobile. Similar to regular websites or web apps, PWAs don't need any dedicated bundling for specific operation systems. As soon as the application is published online, anyone is able to install it to their device's home screen.
Here are some significant differences between the two technologies: - Native apps are much more expensive to build and more difficult to ship as you need to rely on a third-party marketplace and develop a separate version of the app for each platform - Native apps are able to offer more advanced features compared with PWAs as they're better integrated into and adjusted to the environment they exist in. - PWAs provide larger opportunities in terms of Search Engine Optimization as they behave like regular web pages. - Native apps allow for more granular notification control, while PWAs rely on web notifications, which implies certain restirctions. For a more detailed comparison of the approaches, check out our PWA vs Native App guide.
Many native apps can already be replaced by a PWA, as the latter is able to provide the same functionality. However, some of the most popular platforms such as iOS have limited support for PWAs, which is a serious obstacle for the advancement and spread of this technology.
