Why do our customers quickly outgrow Miniextensions and move to Softr?


MiniExtension is a group of extensions for your Airtable bases to view and update data visually. While Miniextensions enhances your Airtable use with helpful mini-tools, Softr on the other hand is a full web-app building platform with built-in authentication, payments, user groups, permissions, and replaces the need to stitch together multiple extensions and pay extra.
