My concern is that as end users we could end up shooting ourselves in the leg by asking glide to provide us with features that were already free on google.
If we keep doing that we will end up paying unnecessarily for something that was free.
I want glide app to remain reasonably priced as they are the only one of its kind to give so much functionality for so little.
Check out an app named appsheet, It does all you are asking using google sheets, with so much more features but it cost $10 for each person you allow access to your app.
The worst part about it, appsheet started out just like glide very efficient and effective at just presenting whatever is in your google sheet.
However people kept requesting google sheet’s function to be placed in the app until appsheet began to add the spreadsheet formulas to the app “Something that was free”, in turn they had to start charging users for these free features.
What end up happening their operations cost skyrocketed and they were forced to charge app users a lot of money for unnecessary features.
This is how I myself found Glide because appsheet became too expensive and redundant by placing all google sheets free functionality in the app and then charging for it.
You are right it will be easier to place some of google’s features right in the app, but is it worth it?. Once you set up your glide app, and all your filters and formulas in google, you don’t have to touch them again.
So all i’m saying let us as a community do our part to keep glide slim and trim and not bloated with unnecessary features that we already have on the google end.
Sorry i’m just traumatized from having to abandoned my previous platform and starting all over again. I really love glide and Cant afford it if it gets any more expensive.
