Google Debuts 'App Maker' for Simple Apps

Google's low-code environment App Maker is now available

Google has been working pretty hard to come up with some interesting new features for G-Suite users.

"App Maker is G Suite's low-code application development environment that makes it easy for teams to build custom apps to speed up workflows and make processes better", Google said on the company blog.

The WYSIWYG environment is designed to make sure businesses can create exactly what they need, with a minimum of cost and coding knowledge. Because their IT budget centers on big enterprise apps like CRM, ERP and SCM and beyond those priorities, IT executives' attention focuses on security and governance, Geva Rechav, product manager of App Maker, wrote in a post.

Google announced the general availability of its low-code App Maker tool, designed to quickly create apps for its business-oriented G Suite portfolio. It also supports a Bring Your Own Database ("BYODB") model, letting you connect it to your own database using JDBC or a REST API.

Additionally, for customers who also have a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account, App Maker is offering built-in support for Cloud SQL.

App Maker, launched in beta back in 2016, is created to help software developers build and deploy apps to facilitate business processes and workflows faster than they can with conventional app development methods. Google even offers a few examples of where App Maker can help: requesting purchase orders, filing and resolving help desk tickets, and tracking allocation requests.

App Maker is included with G Suite Business and Enterprise editions, along with G Suite for Education.

There are also a couple of new features that have been added in the stable release.

Before you start using App Maker, Google recommends checking out these tutorials and this codelab.

Until now the tool was in private beta; now every developer can give it a try and create applications easily. Admins will also be able to prevent apps from running without their approval.
