This article compares the most common no-code tools with HarmonyCB. That includes big players like Bubble or Webflow, but also newer and smaller tools like Adalo or Stacker. The comparison involves furthermore business orientated no-code tools like Betty Blocks and Mendix. And of course design orientated tools like HarmonyCB and Figma are mentioned as well. So let’s see how HarmonyCB comes off in that competition!
First of all, who is supposed to use which no-code tool? The target audience differs from tool to tool. HarmonyCB is aimed at designers and creators. It offers templates, but if wanted, the user is completely free to design everything by themselves. Other tools like Figma and Webflow are also design orientated: While Figma is a tool with lots of freedom in questions of design as well, HarmonyCB offers all conceivable design options AND is fully functional. Webflow can be used for creating websites, HarmonyCB is meant to create apps or parts of it.
Which brings us to HarmonyCB’s USP: HarmonyCB is the only one of the compared no-code tools that offers working with Iframes. That means that you can work with it when you already have an existing app or even an established design of your brand. HarmonyCB offers the possibility to create and design just some parts of an app and include them to an already existing one, like Tubics (one of HarmonyCB’s users) does. Because of the broad design options the design is fully adjustable.
Many enterprises need and want to work collaboratively, so this is a function almost every tool offers. Besides HarmonyCB especially Mendix and Stacker seem to have a special interest in providing collaborative working. In comparison Adalo demands to define one account manager and Elementor doesn’t offer collaborative working either.
Responsive design & App branding
Coming to crucial functions of no-code tools, HarmonyCB provides basically all of them. In HarmonyCB, responsive design is possible through three different views (desktop, tablet, mobile). Even tools like Bubble and Retool don’t provide a fully responsive design: They have some limitations (Bubble) or differ only between mobile and desktop view (Retool).
Especially for already existing enterprises or likewise for early founders and start-ups it is an essential need to have a catchy and memorable app branding. Therefore HarmonyCB provides custom app branding in every plan. Compared with this, other no-code tools like Webflow or Retool limit that feature to the more expensive plans.
Integrations & Deployment
It is not only a feature of HarmonyCB to integrate the Iframes in other apps, but also to integrate APIs (like Airtable) or custom backend code into HarmonyCB itself. Integrations like APIs are common and possible in almost every no-code tool (Bubble, Adalo, Betty Blocks), only Stacker integrates just with 5% of the most popular apps .
Regarding deployment HarmonyCB appears to be as good as any other no-code tool: Not only tools like Bubble, Webflow or Betty Blocks, but also HarmonyCB handles the hosting and deployment for the user.
When it comes to customer support, HarmonyCB provides email support regardless of which plan the user paid for. By way of contrast some other no-code tools like Retool and Stacker offer that only in their pro plans. Furthermore there will soon be online tutorials that show how HarmonyCB can be used.
Give it a try – HarmonyCB is child’s play!
Still not sure if HarmonyCB is worth a try? It is possible to try out all features for free, only for releasing your project a plan is needed. While other no-code tools like Bubble, Betty Blocks or Mendix just have limited options of trying out features for free, HarmonyCB gives the users the option to check out all the functions and allows them to convince themselves before they have to pay for it.
Even probably the youngest of HarmonyCB’s users – Toby, 8 years old – was able to build a functioning app in just a few hours . The ease of use of HarmonyCB is thereby approved!
