I'm not sure how hard this will actually be, but I would like to know how I go about creating an app?
I already have a subscription product for meal plans up and running, but this would be so much easier if I had an app with a database of recipes etc.
I can't find any training on it, and I'm not even sure if it relates to this platform and my website. But, if anyone has any info, then I'd love to know.
I have a feeling that I will have to have it professionally done right?
Thanks

Hi Stefanie
I don't know about building an app.
I find that having and using a Google calendar helpful because it has a search feature on it.
Best wishes,

Delroy

i've not gone through hte whole process but there is a way to change a google doc into an app
https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/no-code-development/turn-google-sheet-data-into-a-no-code-web-app-with-appsheet
worth a review

if you do go the pro route and get a designer ...specify what you want first...
do some sketches and get them to wireframe...
it is all about the specification...

good luck

Hi Phil,

Wow, this is great info! However, I just don't see how a Google doc can withhold all the information I need in an app. Such as a database for recipes and the ability to filter out specific ingredients and generate shopping lists etc.

I think I may need to pay someone to do it. And, yes, I will definitely decide exactly how I want it first :-)

you would be creating spread sheets with the information on in certain areas and this links to your app ...so you can add to it for the future...
as far as i could see....
filtering is a similar process as with spread sheets and applicable to the app...
it may not be comprehensive enough for what you want ...but worth bearing in mind even if you get a designer to create one as i am sure it would be good to be able to update it...in an easy to use interface...
