Why we build on Bubble

There are many no-code tools to build with, and nearly all of them offer speed and ease of use. The key is finding the platform that has the power and flexibility to handle your concept as it scales and evolves. We choose Bubble because it gives us complete control over design, functionality, and extensibility of each app we build, so we don't fear encountering features we can't deliver on. Trusted by thousands of companies and backed by the best partners, Bubble is our clear technology partner of choice.

BUBBLE HIGHLIGHTS

Complete control

Unlike no-code tools with specific use cases (like Webflow for marketing websites or Shopify for eCommerce), Bubble is a comprehensive "visual development" platform designed to mimic the flexibility of code. Builders define each workflow step, each search parameter, and each database field in their application. As a result, Bubble requires more training and expertise, but can produce virtually any modern app configuration.

Pixel-perfect design

Bubble supports fully responsive and pixel-perfect design, allowing builders to accomplish any UI/UX. Most of our clients use our Canvas design framework and preconfigured modules to accelerate the initial build, but Bubble allows our team to implement custom design tweaks or complete app reskins at any point with total precision.

Fully extensible

While Bubble offers a vast array of functions natively, a key consideration for any no-code tool is its ability to work well with third-party services and custom code to extend its capabilities. Bubble's plugin ecosystem and flexible API connector tool make it easy to add anything from Google Maps to Stripe payments to a custom AI algorithm built with code. This extensibility magnifies the power of Bubble to tackle any functionality.

Scalable and secure

A key value in the Platform-as-a-Service approach is the world-class and fully maintained infrastructure that powers your application. Bubble is built on AWS and is constantly monitoring and improving its platform behind the scenes. This means 99.9% uptime, the ability to scale virtual computing power with a click, and dozens of security measures. So your technology will keep up with your scale and protect you from threats.

Common questions

What types of products is Bubble good for?

A plus icon

Bubble is a highly flexible programming framework, which makes it a good fit for building almost any kind of a web application. These might include marketplaces, sales tools, productivity tools, and practically anything else with users and a database.

What types of products is Bubble not good for?

A plus icon

There are a few categories of products that Bubble isn't yet good for:
- Apps that need to work without an internet connection
- Apps that have complex regulatory requirements (e.g. HIPAAA)
- Fully native mobile apps (e.g. Whatsapp or Uber) - though web-based mobile apps are supported

Will my application scale?

A plus icon

Yes. We always design apps to optimize for scale, based on our understanding of the potential features and user behavior our client envisions. The Bubble technology is built to scale, with the ability to upgrade server capacity as needed (including migrating to a dedicated AWS cluster) to service a growing user base. Bubble provides simple dashboards and notifications to track app capacity usage to help you adjust as needed.

Will my application be secure?

A plus icon

Yes. All app data is stored on industry-standard Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers, which companies like Netflix use to manage their sensitive data. Data is encrypted at rest, all changes are logged for auditing, and role-based privacy rules determine what data is visible to which users. Apps support SSL encryption (i.e., https:// rather than http://), which offers an additional layer of data security. For apps requiring the transfer of sensitive personal medical records, our apps cannot yet be HIPPA compliant. We are happy to answer specific questions about security as you get started on your project.
