Prepared to know which is the best no-code tool, bubble io or FlutterFlow?

General Comparison

In general Bubble is more focused for apps web creation and Flutterflow mobile apps, however to create responsive apps web on both platforms it is possible.

Furthermore, on both platforms, it is possible to create apps PWA, which can solve most demands for application development.

Creating Native Mobile Apps is possible in Flutterflow and for Bubble it is necessary to use a third party service such as BDK. See in the image below.

Regarding push notifications in FlutterFlow it is possible and for Bubble it is necessary to use the BDK to have native applications with notifications.

There are also other important features to compare Bubble with FlutterFlow, for example

  • Complex logics
  • offline operation
  • collaborative construction
  • Autonomy under the source code
  • APIs
  • Backend

Bubble and FlutterFlow – Backend

In the composition of a complete backend we have:

  • Structured and secure database
  • Server Actions: These are actions that will be executed directly on the server. You can, for example, schedule actions without depending on user actions.
  • Webhook: A trigger that triggers a certain action between applications.
    Example: Online payments.

In Bubble, we have an integrated backend, which is possible with some positives and points to consider

Strengths

  • Faster learning curve;
  • No extra backend costs;
  • Enables Webhook and server actions.

points to consider

  • Dependence on a tool;
  • Lack of tool focus;
  • Compliance.

In FlutterFlow, we only have frontend, which is necessary to connect with external backend like for example firebase or Xano.

Strengths

  • More professional structure;
  • Decentralization of a tool;
  • Tool dedicated to its function;
  • Compliance.

points to consider

  • Longer learning curve;
  • Extra expense depending on the chosen tool.

So, you must choose which is the best tool for your project.
