Competitors of Buzztouch

Hi,

I'm a subscriber of Buzztouch. Since it is acquired now, I cannot afford the cost that Buzztouch will be charging from Jan 01 onwards.
Let me know if there are any other companies like Buzztouch which may suit my budget.
Any info is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Scorpion

You are welcome to look out there for a better priced solution I have done the research. There isn't a better deal.

BTW pricing has not changed for most members. It's just you are not getting the service for free anymore.

Also this kind of post on Buzztouch's forum is extremely bad taste. Let this be a warning I am very close to deleting this post all together. So be careful what you post further. I expect though that my claims on pricing will be backed up by other "paying" members.

I also looked at your account, You are not a subscriber (not paid BT for membership) since you joined this is your first post and have made zero apps on BT.


Vishnu, happy to discuss further in private in email at <a href="mailto:info@buzztouch.com">info@buzztouch.com</a>

Hey Kristen, don't delete this kind of crap, it's a nice piece of fun for all of us who know what we are able to create with a moderate fee... Stupidity is so funny sometimes...

Delete this garbage post. This website is important for many people who use the service. For business owners like myself who refer clients and friends here, I would like for it to be a nice honest place. This person is trashing Buzztouch for fun. Not cool.

There is actually a competitor named dropsource, which seems a lot like buzztouch. I thought it was buzztouch rebranding itself because of the similar offers they have. What makes buzztouch way better than any other app maker is the community. A lot of us have others contact info and have gotten to know each other well. There's no community this supportive. The price of buzztouch is way cheaper than other app making software that offer a lot less also.

If you can't afford $15 a month, how will you afford the other more substantial costs to making apps? To make apps, you really need a decent computer so that your apps can compile in a reasonable amount of time. You need to pay Apple $99 per year plus tax.

Then think about the programming costs. If you were to give up Buzztouch, then you better know either Javascript like the back of your hand, or Objective C and Java, and the app making frameworks that go with it. Your learning curve will be very slow, and you won't have an app for a year, or you will spend $10,000 to get a simple app made.

Now think about the back-end of Buzztouch. With Buzztouch, you get an on-line backend to host your app content and allow you to make changes on the fly. I am not sure where you could get something like that anywhere.

$15 is just such a reasonable price for what you get. You can see why the existing Buzztouch subscribers are so passionate--we know absolutely that Buzztouch is the best deal on the planet.

Yep. I have looked at lots of other options and the cost is way more. Buzz touch is the way to go! I am glad Kaybee took over. Was getting concerned that the platform was dying and did not invest too much time in it recently. Now super motivated again!
