Appgyver’s Composer 2 Makes Constructing B2B Apps Straightforward
AppGyver has made a reputation for itself with builders instruments and frameworks like Steroids and Supersonic for constructing cellular apps. With Composer, the corporate additionally launched a easy drag-and-drop software for constructing HTML5 apps final yr. Now the corporate is giving Composer an enormous replace — and a special focus.
Composer 2 nonetheless permits anyone to shortly construct a cellular app for shoppers, however the actual focus now is on making it straightforward for anyone in an enterprise (or perhaps a small enterprise) to construct inner line-of-enterprise apps with out having to the touch any code. Like so many startups earlier than it, AppGyver additionally discovered that promoting to builders is tough, however its answer clearly fills the wants of the enterprise.
As AppGyver CEO and co-founder Marko Lehtimaki advised me, the thought behind the service has all the time been to “make app improvement straightforward for a big viewers.” The primary model of Composer was step one for the corporate on this course, however this simplified model was already on the roadmap when the group launched Composer 1. “Once we put out Composer 1, we all know this was going to be an enormous improvement effort to actually do what we needed to do: to make it straightforward to write down apps with none code,” he informed me.
As an enterprise device, Composer 2 natively integrates with commonplace enterprise databases and knowledge sources starting from Oracle databases to Salesforce. It additionally integrates with various enterprise authentication protocols. As soon as customers have wired up their knowledge sources, they then construct the essential interface after which use an IFTTT-like software to create the principles that govern the app.
Sometimes, these sorts of visible programming instruments that declare they may allow you to construct an app with out writing code work properly for a really restricted set of use-instances. Lehtimaki and his staff discovered the identical, so within the strategy of constructing Composer 2, the staff targeted on making it as extensible as potential. The device enables you to interface with any REST API, however builders can now additionally write reusable modules for the service (utilizing Steroids, in fact).
If you wish to plug in a small chat app, for instance, all it’s a must to do is get that module from AppGyver’s listing and set up it. The identical goes for UI extensions, authentication protocols and the superior algorithms chances are you’ll have to work together with your knowledge. In the long term, AppGyver hopes to create a market for paid modules, as properly.

“In all corporations, regardless of their measurement, there are all the time ineffective processes that may be fastened with cellular apps,” Lehtimaki argued, including that many companies nonetheless use paper types that have to be crammed out day by day to maintain their enterprise going. He hopes that this new software will be capable of seize and repair many of those damaged workflows.
Appgyver will transition Composer 1 customers to the brand new model. The corporate will supply a free plan for Composer 2 that may permit builders to get began with the service, however this free model solely comes with one demo consumer account. When you deliver “actual” customers on board, you’ll should pay. Costs begin at $9/month per consumer. AppGyver plans to supply customized plans for giant enterprises, too.
