Google makes 'App Maker' generally available

App Maker is now available to all G Suite Business, Enterprise, and Education customers. This "low-code" tool is now generally available and a part of G Suite's various offerings for businesses, as well as schools.

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. The tool supports popular app development tool standards such as Java, Cascading Style Sheets, HTML and also Google's own Material Design framework.

In announcing the general availability of App Maker, Google cited research indicating custom mobile apps can save employees 7.5 hours per week, one of the driving motivations behind the increasing universe of low-code tools in the face of a dearth of professional programmers.

Merkel, allies heading for showdown over immigration policy
As a compromise, the CDU proposes turning away at the border migrants who have already applied for asylum and been rejected. The conservatives' centre-left coalition ally, the Social Democrat (SPD) party, said their dispute needed to be settled.

The overall idea here is to help virtually anybody in an organization - including those with little to no coding experience - to build their own line-of-business apps based on data that's already stored in G Suite, Google's Cloud SQL database or any other database that supports JDBC or that offers a REST API (that that's obviously a bit more of an advanced operation). The company argues that IT executives' attention is on security and governance, not on app development.

Additionally, the App Maker also has responsive templates so that the users will not have to waste time coding individual basic element separately. For example, video game publisher Electronic Arts used an early version of App Maker to create a custom app to help streamline its capital resourcing needs.

Before you start using App Maker, Google recommends checking out these tutorials and this codelab. Administrators for instance, can use the features to do things such as managing application permissions, viewing reports and logs and deleting App Maker apps and related databases, according to the company.
