App Maker Google’s low-code tool for building business apps comes out of beta Frederic Lardinois @ 1 day

"App Maker was created to enable your line-of-business teams to build apps for the jobs [that] bigger apps don't tackle", said Geva Rechav, product manager at Google in a blog announcing general availability of the tool.

As mentioned above Google has come up with something that could help the non-professionals to develop an app which the company is calling App Maker.

The WYSIWYG environment is designed to make sure businesses can create exactly what they need, with a minimum of cost and coding knowledge.

The tool easily connects to G Suite apps like Gmail, Calendar and SheetsPlus, and business developers can further use Apps Script to hook into more than 40 of Google's other services, along with Google Cloud Platform and other third-party services supporting JDBC and REST.

Since its initial launch, Google has added new features and improvements to App Maker.

XXXTentacion Cause of Death: How Did Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy Die?
TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour . XXXTentacion had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory, the sheriff's office said.

App Maker provides those users with low-code tools to make their own custom mobile apps, with the goal of helping G Suite customers create apps specifically for their own needs that larger and more mainstream business and education apps can not offer. The company argues that IT executives' attention is on security and governance, not on app development.

But tasks like requesting purchase orders or filing and resolving help desk tickets are key to how departments like HR, sales and finance operate.

Google's solution is geared towards what it calls citizen developers and IT departments that want to quickly create apps through a cloud-based IDE that features a drag-and-drop interface, responsive templates, and samples. It also offers an application development environment with pre-coded modules and many app templates to assist in developing new web applications.

Open: App Maker now offers built-in support for Cloud SQL (GCP account required), offering high performance, scalability and convenience.

Before you start using App Maker, Google recommends checking out these tutorials and this codelab.
