Creating mobile apps without coding – advanced operations

Add power and customisation to your app in our final part of our DIY mobile app-building course.

In this third and final workshop on mobile app-building for beginners and non-coders, we build on what you learned in ‘The basics’ and ‘Data operations’ by starting to bring in more advanced operations using the ViziApps tool.

What you’ll learn

In this third session, you’ll unlock ViziApps features that let you add power and customisation to your app. Some examples include:

  • using push notifications to send messages to users
  • GPS to create apps that are sensitive to location
  • a camera (for example, to take photos of accidents to send back to the insurance company)

Your app is getting about as powerful as it can be without needing a programmer.
