Google Sheets is my go to for any no-code project. Because it is a spreadsheet with an API hooked in, it is super simple to connect forms, other tools as well as serve as a conduit back to whatever output you are generating to the user. I use it as a database. However, it is not as functional as Airtable and below in the Pros and Cons I highlight why.
Google Sheets is free, easy to use, most familiar to use, friendly API, most responsive API that cannot be beat (when connecting to Zapier it responds the fastest between Zaps/workflows). For what google sheets lacks in what Airtable can do, it provides faster workflows.
One critical area that Google Sheets lacks in is the ability to update an existing row with a formula in it. To my knowledge it is not possible to set up several different formulas in google sheets in a column prior to adding information from a form. Airtable is superior in this regard. Depending on what you need done, I’d recommend google sheets. When I created a the no code tool generator I failed to create it with google sheets and used Airtable successfully.
Below are some of the best no code actual applications created by some insanely talented Makers who launched using Google Sheets as part of the side project stack.
