6 Cloud-based Tools For Creating Mobile & Web Apps

Living in the age of the web, it has become essential to create applications for both the web and mobile platforms. In order to build the best apps, you need the best tools. But, there are many tools available in the market, so it can be tricky deciding which one is the most appropriate. In this post, I have compiled some of the best cloud-based tools to help developers in the process of building excellent apps. Take a look at these tools:


Formerly known as Tiggzi, this platform is defined as a cloud-based jQuery Mobile, Hybrid Mobile App and Hybrid Mobile App Builder. With the best use of jQuery Mobile, this tool helps in building cross-platform HTML5 applications. It supports Windows Phone, iOS, and Android, and it lets you make ample use of integrated PhoneGap/Apache Cordova output. This builder runs in the cloud, so there is no requirement to download or install it.


If you are looking for a mobile app builder to create stunning mobile apps for free, then consider this tool. It allows you to create amazing designs easily without any sort of coding. Your application becomes ready just with one click. With the help of this platform, you can make applications for both Android and iOS in just minutes. It is enriched with a wide variety of components including RSS, e-commerce, social feed, notifications, events and many more. This is considered an ideal solution for non-technical people.


These days, a number of companies are looking for big data solutions. Knack has generated a perfect solution for “little data” with a cross between Filemaker Pro and Caspio. It allows the users to create their online database and is focused on building simple web applications so you can develop apps that go along with your data. This tool comes with functionality such as data display, custom forms and search. You can integrate the cloud service in your website with the web API and JavaScript without facing any hassles. Knack offers the best ways to find and share your data.


This is an awesome tool, which has HTML5 along with jQuery Mobile. It is considered suitable for people who are more designer and less programmer. Though it resembles Tiggzi, it is less developer-oriented. It has a drag and drop interface, which lets you build fast and easy mobile prototype with a Preview mode in order to test your prototype. It develops apps that are bestowed with 100 percent HTML5 components. Once you create a prototype, then coding is not required all over again.


Keen IO is the best example of a modern app without having modern analytics. This has immense ability to incorporate strong charting capabilities into your application. You can expect to create analytics features within fractions of minutes by using its pitch. And, API can be used to analyze, visualize and collect your data.


If we compare it with different cloud-based app development tools, then Kinvey is rated the most technical. It is the best option for people who do not mind some programming. But, it is known for sorting out the problem of creating and building mobile back-end. There is no need to use difficult back-end code (file management/database, user) to write. And, it does not ask you to pay until your app succeeds.

Though there are many cloud-based tools available in the market, I’ve arranged what I consider to be the best collection for you. All the above-discussed tools have their own attributes, so you need to select the one which fits to your app development goals.
