🍏🐑 AppSheet Overview

It looks like you can use Google Sheets as a data source.

This falls in the general category of no-code application development.

Cited advantages of no-code application development include: - Faster time to deployment - Reduced IT backlog - End users don't have to wait for someone more technical to get to it. - Anyone can be a developer! - Improved security - Safeguards are built-in. - Cleaner data - Validate input data (this prevents a problem where a phone number was handwritten with too few digits, for example) - Less paper - This is a great way to digitize paper-based processes. - Increased productivity
