I gave Adalo a good second try. I stuck with it well beyond my initial breaking point. But, that’s it for me, I’m done.
All I wanted to do was recreate an app from a competitive service (Glideapps), and that process is proving extremely frustrating. Every step forward is followed by two steps backwards, and I have to make too many compromises over the original app.
I have dropped too many features or sacrificed too much over the original app. Adalo’s UI/UX experience is impressive, but that’s not enough to save it for me.
During the last couple of weeks, I have been struggling with Adalo to recreate an existing app. In the same period on Glideapps, I created two new apps from scratch, and they have been rolled out to production; the customers have signed off, and I’ve received payment.
Oddly enough, the most infuriating experience was when I downgraded my account from paid to free. I expected my paid subscription to run out in due course; instead, I discovered (and was notified when I clicked the button) the downgrade takes place immediately, and I have effectively lost three weeks of paid subscription. That was salt in the wound!
I won’t go on another protracted rant; been there done that. I thoroughly appreciate the support over the last couple of weeks and wish everyone the best.
