Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I remember when @eltintero showcased it here.

Thanks for posting, and thank you to Glide for making it possible!

You refer to things Glide can’t do in the interview. What are the most important ones?

Hey Mark. I wasn’t complaining!
It’s just more specific requests from customers for particular apps.

A couple come to mind: (app.cancuntour.app)
1.- Say we want to sell from the app a tour/yatch/activity. Even though if I have infinite inventory, I’d still need that purchase to be linked to a date. As far as I understand, there’s no way for me to do that: sell a service linked to X date.

2.- Another customer (app.mareazul.com) is moving from their “hospitality app” to ours, but there are several things we fall short on:
2.1 There’s no “chat” version within the app, to speak to customer service
2.2 There’s no “easy” way to send the guest the smart-key code for the guest to do self check-in (I don’t want to give them access to the Google Sheet)
2.3 Currently, their welcome app has a sign-in module, so you know that Mr John Doe is staying in Suite 101 Dec 11-13, and the home screen has that info; we can’t do that.

As I say, it’s not a complaint, I’ve been in sales and mkt my whole life, and don’t have a problem saying NO to a customer… For my business to grow, I need volume and not a lot of specific development for specific custmers (especially at this VERY low price point). But if a customer needs a very bespoke hospitality app, my guess is that Glide wouldn’t work for them. Custom dev requires $$$, and nobody is willing to pay for that around here.


Thank you for your feedback!

1: To do that now you’d have to have a row for every date. I assume that you don’t want to do that?

2.1: Yes, we definitely need to do that.

2.2 and 2.3: You could make them log into the app with their email and have a row in a “home” sheet where there’s all the info for them. I’m guessing you want the app to be public, without sign-in?


1.- Exactly. Ideally, I’d have a calendar pick, just like in forms, but for buying.
2.2 and 2.3 let me look into that… that’s not a bad option.

  1. in PRO apps, daily statistics about app usage.
