We love the no-code community here at ClickSend Towers and that community wouldn’t be much without no-code development platforms (so we seriously love them). We appreciate and understand how important and big no-code development is and it’s only getting bigger and bigger.
What is no-code development?
In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, no-code development is a type of web development that allows non-programmers and even programmers to create software using a graphical user interface (GUI), a visual drag-and-drop interface, instead of writing code. The no-code movement rests upon the fundamental belief that technology should enable and facilitate creation, not be a barrier to entry.
We recently had two amazing no-code development software platforms integrate us into their platforms and we didn’t have to lift a finger. We call this an inbound integration and as you’d appreciate we seriously value them. So, before we go any further, we’d like to thank Appypie and AppMaster for making us part of their worlds and part of their customer’s lives. Without further ado, and in alphabetical order, let us introduce you to them.
What is AppMaster?
From their own website: AppMaster is a new generation no-code platform for automating business processes and building native apps for web & mobile with code generation.
AppMaster lets you build full-featured software with backend, frontend, and advanced native mobile applications. It creates your application’s source code, compiles, and deploys it to any cloud provider or private server
They’re quite a fresh, new face on the block and were recently #2 Product of the Day on Product Hunt.
- Native Mobile Applications Builder: You just drag and drop elements, edit and you will have a mobile application in minutes.
- Web App Builder: Create a web application for admin or control your mobile apps with Drag & Drop visual builder.
- Data Models Designer: Create your data models with fields, everything else will be built in seconds by platform AI.
- Business Process Editor: Visually create business processes of any complexity and without hassle.
Where does ClickSend fit in?
We are now a featured ‘module’ within their marketplace. So if you’re building something amazing and want it to have SMS functionality….let me rephrase that, the best SMS functionality on the planet, you can add it with just one click of the Install button. Too easy, but that’s what no-code is all about.

If you’re looking for no-code development platforms then we reckon you should give either of these two a go (of course we’d say that). One is a shiny new entrant the other an old stager. They both have freemium offers so why not give them both a crack and see what one you like the most.
Now go out and create something magical without code be it an app, be it a workflow automation – just make sure it requires SMS functionality! 😉
