Why Build with a Low-Code App Builder?

Digital evolution requires businesses develop sophisticated mobile applications at
an unprecedented speed. Unfortunately, native app development is too expensive and
too lengthy. Low-code app builders, like Alpha Anywhere, let more people create
mobile apps without hiring experienced mobile developers. 

"By 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity." - Gartner
