Adalo’s Founding Story

Did you know who invented the first computer?

NoCode Tool: Adalo

The company’s name Adalo came from Ada Lovelace, widely considered to be the world’s first computer programmer.

The founder David Adkin of Adalo hopes to carry on her innovative spirit and usher in a new era where anyone can create computer programs and solve problems once thought to be impossible.

Their mission is to unlock the world’s creative potential so that anyone can bring their ideas to life. Well, that’s the main goal of NoCode right? They want to create a world where everyone can innovate everything.

Adalo was founded in 2018 by the team of Jeremy Blalock leading engineering, David Adkin leading design and Ben Haefele leading product and operations in St Louis Missouri.

Adalo helps turn real-world ideas into Apps without writing a single line of code.

They have beautifully designed drag-and-drop components, including lists, forms, payments, buttons, and navigation, which are reusable building blocks to create your app’s interface.

The unique feature is that Adalo allows you to set up dynamic actions like linking pages, push notifications, login, and permissions as well as Native device actions and third-party integration like Zapier to bring your app to life.

Finally, it is all about creating a repository or database for your app, which can be as simple as spreadsheets setting relationships between entities, managing user data as well as integrating with external data sources to create a fully functioning data-driven app.

Additionally, Adalo introduces Universal Search, empowering users to swiftly locate any necessary element within the platform, whether it be components, marketplace components, sections, or feature templates.

Moreover, the Quick Add Menu simplifies the process further by consolidating all essential elements required for app building into one accessible menu, accessible via a single click or their newly introduced hotkeys.

For thousands of years, women have connected with the moon to harness their intuition and align with the divine feminine energy. The moon serves as a reminder to unleash the goddess and wild woman within us. We all possess both divine masculine and feminine qualities, ideally balanced equally. However, the divine feminine is currently out of balance globally. Moonifest made by Samantha Shaibani, encourages individuals to reclaim their power by honoring these energies, uplifting the collective consciousness. It’s for those who feel a magical potential within and recognize the goddess inside.

Why I Must Use Adalo?

Adalo is more than just a platform; it’s a revolution in app development. Founded on the belief that everyone should be able to create apps, regardless of their coding skills, the platform empowers users to build, design, and customise their mobile apps effortlessly.

We at NoCode Journal have used Adalo for a couple of sample projects and are hoping to use the same for some significant projects in the future.
Manish (the founder of this digital magazine to showcase NoCode and LowCode tools and DSHG Sonic) is a React Native app developer, so I do have the ability to write code, but the flexibility of using a product like Adalo is very visible.

The best attribute is to see how soon we can get a first look at a functioning app in a client’s hand without having to hunker down and code for a long time.
