Today Google is introducing App Maker, a new service helping people inside organizations to iterate from prototyping to the deployment of the app. App Maker has promised to make it easy to develop basic applications serving a specific purpose inside an organization. It will be interesting to see how this App Maker performs against its competitors like Microsoft and other startups offering the same service.
Google says, users won’t have to worry about the infrastructure and it allows them to develop applications that solve their specific needs without taking it to the developers. It works like a fully featured IDE, thanks to the built-in scripting editor.
The data generated inside applications built by using App Maker can be stored in a new service called Google Drive Tables. To put it in this way, Google Drive tables are nothing but a managed structure database which stores data in Google Drive. When we talk about database setup, Google Drive Tables maintenance and setup is quite simple just like Google Cloud SQL from the Google Cloud Platform.
Google in addition to the announcement of App Maker, is now adding few new applications to its “Recommended for G Suite” program. The new program is more focused on certifying that these applications are well integrated into G Suite with the tasting for securities vulnerabilities. Google made an announcement that Virtru, LumApps, DocuSign, Freshdesk, Zoho Invoice, Xero, and Asana are newly partnered companies.
