What's included with Nutshell Apps?

Your Nutshell subscription includes everything you need to build and run business apps. There are no hidden extras or dependencies, only a handful of simple options to tailor the platform to your needs. Here’s what you get with your Nutshell subscription…

Drag-and-drop app builder

Nutshell’s unique drag-and-drop app builder runs in a web browser and lets ordinary business-folk build sophisticated apps for mobile and desktop devices, without writing a single line of code. It’s the lego-brick approach to building apps.

It’s so easy use, anyone techie enough to make even a basic spreadsheet will be right at home with Nutshell in just a couple of hours following our excellent video tutorials.

But don’t let the simplicity fool you, this is not a toy. Nutshell is capable of building incredibly sophisticated digital eco-systems and automated workflows, using pre-built components. 

Here are just a few of the key features…

All the complicated ‘back-end’ stuff

Behind every smart data-driven app is a bunch of back-end services that make it tick; things like databases, API connectors, email servers, authentication services, security and encryption tools, file storage, notification services, automatic back-ups… the list goes on.

Nutshell takes away the pain of finding, configuring and paying for all these hidden extras separately. Nutshell provides all of these services with your base subscription, which means there are no hidden costs and no nasty surprises.

Here are some of the things Nutshell gives you right out of the box:

Every Nutshell subscription includes free access to the Nutshell container app. However you can upgrade to your own-branded version of this app if you prefer, in your own corporate colours and with your own logo and custom name.

We’ll even keep your container up-to-date with future operating system releases for you.
