Zoho revamps low-code application building platform Creator

Zoho Corporation, a cloud-based software company, on Monday announced a major update to its low-code application building platform Zoho Creator.

In a release issued by the company, the latest version Creator 5 has significantly enhanced and refined the core functionality of the platform, including its Mobile App Creator, Page Creator, Form Creator, Report Creator and Workflow Creator modules.

Commenting on the development, Zoho Corp  Business Process Products Vice President Hyther Nizam said over the last 12 years, the Zoho Creator platform has enabled citizen developers to design and deploy over two million custom applications.

"Having refined our low-code, no-code approach to app development, Zoho Creator has become the app builder for those of us with no formal programming and deployment experience. With this update, we are raising the bar yet again by enabling mobile app creation for both smartphones and tablets, no programming skills required. On top of this, all two million existing Zoho Creator applications are now automatically mobile-enabled,"   he said.

He also pointed that web applications built on Zoho Creator 12 years ago-before mobile operating systems like iOS or Android even existed-are automatically mobile-enabled and ready for deployment on smartphones and tablets with no effort on the user's end.

Zoho Corporation also sated the launch also introduces the ability to design and develop native custom mobile apps alongside web applications. "To simplify deployment for larger organizations, apps built on Zoho Creator can now also be managed through the Zoho One Admin Panel, a unified interface that governs the company's full flagship suite of applications," states the company.

The Chennai-headquartered company stated that Zoho Creator 5 is available immediately for all new users. Existing users will be migrated to the new version in phases over the next few months. Zoho One customers will be able to deploy their Creator apps through the Zoho One Admin Panel.

After the 15-day free trial, Zoho Creator's pricing starts from Rs 400 per user per month when billed annually.
