The client wanted to build an MVP for their new product and see how well bubble performs with a completely external database before building out the full product.
For this project, we created native Android and iOS apps using Bubble. But instead of the internal database that comes with No Code, it connected to an external database via APIs. We've found instances where this solution works wonders for some social media features but ran into limitations when integrating APIs. This required code-based solutions built from scratch rather than a simple visual interface like Bubble. We’ve finished the project and helped the client decide not to pursue further development in Bubble, but rather build it with Code from scratch. Even though No Code is great for MVPs, for very complex projects - traditional software development may still be the right solution.
