I’m new to Glide, and I have to say it’s awesome! It let me take an idea and create a functioning app in ONE WEEK. Yes, I have to rely on Integromat and other things to populate data, but that’s totally fine. Overall it’s super cool and easy to use.
I tried searching the forum to figure my Question: At what point do you decide to build a real app?
Although the app I built works, DATA is going to be the real differentiator for my app. Search analytics, User Reviews, etc Yes I can plugin Google Analytics, but need a little more. Offline, Push Notifications, are going to be important as well.
Also, the more time I invest in Glide, the longer I delay launching a real React Native app. Spending $2-5k to get a real PWA app is not an issue right now, just trying to figure WHEN do that?
It seems MVP is kinda dead, and it should be MDP (Minimum Desirable Product). Still learning though. I know there IS a need for my app from surveys I’ve done and people asking. Also there is a huge conference coming up that would be awesome to launch on.
So I’d like to know from others here who’ve walked this actual path…
- When did you start building your own PWA or native app to publish to the store? When did you decide to stop investing time in Glide and more into a native app?
- How did you migrate your users from Glide to a real app?
I need a launch strategy.
