Roast my landing page (I'll roast yours in return)

We are preparing to launch our product in few days in public and would love to have some feedback from real people. Please be honest and don't worry about my feelings :)

I can review your page in return if you would like.

    It's pretty solid. Showing the app itself makes it look legitimate.

    At the same time, my gosh that app looks too-good-to-be-true. As a developer, I've got alarm bells going off, harking back to frameworks (not even build tools) that promised power but came at a price and inflexibilities. I'm skeptic.

    To build trust, and to address the by-default skepticism your visitor will surely be feeling, have you considered reducing such anxieties by showing what your app can't do? Show its limits. Educate how to get around them even.

    At this point, you're probably feeling like you could, instead of that "what it can't do" approach, that you could show a list of what you've got on the roadmap. I wouldn't show a roadmap about what you're building, hoping that it will create trust. More features might, instead, create anxiety.

    I'd just own up to the edge cases and leave the current app to be sold as is. The point is to show when (for which situations) your product shines and communicate situations where it doesn't, so you can reduce anxieties (like too-good-to-be-true skepticism) and create trust.

      I've made a longer post with your site as an example, where I make the case to highlight what you app can't do in order to reduce that "too good to be true" anxiety and re-assure the visitor. I also recommend you put a price up. Could be $100 for per published project, even. It'll reduce anxieties.

      In the article, I'm making assumptions about AppBuildy. Please correct me where I assumed wrong!

      Hope that helps.

      Got it, big thanks!

    I love the intro video. Super great way to show off what it is really quickly. I also love the design of the site.

    My question would be: if I use this to build an app, can I submit it to the app store?

    Also - it says get started for free but there's no info on what the pricing may be after that.

    Very friendly UI. Think that's important for no-code tools.
    I think maybe the copy could be improved. A little bit wordy.

    Who is your target market?

    For me it's not clear, if I use your tool can I deploy the app to the App Store or is it a web application?

    Amazing performance for both platforms — you have three icons iOS, Android and Web.
    You could never see the difference - You won't see the difference

      We'll fix it, thank you

    Love the headline - very clear-cut unique value proposition. Same for the video demo.

    "Amazing" performance <- the word "amazing" is too general, it'd be good to dive deeper into specifics

    When I see the section on "Powered By Your Data"...which is only 1 section...and the next is "and so much more" it feels like the rest are fillers and only the first section is your strength. The so-much-more section also looks hastily constructed.

    The four "Try Now" buttons under the 4 example apps...I was thinking I'd be able to try the example app if i clicked it, not to get started on the trial.

    Hope this helps :)
