    Fantastic experience with Zoho Creator. Easy to use and cost-effective.

    Pros

    Zoho Creator is an effective tool for building applications for your business. We like using it because we do not have to be experienced in programming and other sophisticated tools to start using it for building apps. The apps we always build with Zoho Creator are great and they boost our daily operations.

    Cons

    Unreliable customer care support team. No other valid reason to complain about Zoho Creator because it has been good to our team.

    Undoubtedly, Zoho Creator is a very useful tool to make an excellent application. I like to use it as it has the entire necessary feature in it which is essential for creating an application. It works seamlessly well. Only thing is that I would love to see enhancement in the interface of this software.

    Pros

    Zoho Creator is a very interesting tool. I can create a perfect application as per my requirement using this software. It is a very helpful tool. There is a drag and drop interface which helps a lot while creating an application; I use it a lot.

    Cons

    Zoho Creator is an extremely wonderful software to use. However, I don’t like its interface. It is very basic according to me. There should be more improvement in it. Except for this problem I don’t have any other problem with Zoho Creator.

    Great for Prototyping Application, Too Slow for Business Use

    I started using Zoho as a quick way to prototype an application. It took a few weeks to build an application that would have taken months in .Net and SQL. My customer loved the application and wanted to use the prototype right off the bat.

    The service generally runs fast, however in the afternoons here in the US, the service can grind to a halt. Form loading goes from seconds to minutes. These are serious problems that made me wish I had stuck to using Zoho strictly as a prototype.

    Pros

    Great interface, email and text integration.

    Cons

    1) Speed is too slow for "real" business use.
    2) On premise application is forever stuck in Beta, there is no choice but to use Zoho's slow servers.
    3) URL and mobile app customization is not possible.

    Response from Zoho

    Thank you for giving Zoho Creator a try. We believe the issue faced by you could be specific to your Zoho Creator application as we haven't had reports of latency from other users. The sluggishness experienced by you in accessing Creator Form especially during a certain time of the day is something that we would like to look into further.

    Could you email form details of your Zoho Creator app to [email protected]/[email protected], please? The team over here would like to ascertain the reasons for the latency issue and revert with possible solutions, if any.

    Easy to Use - Great For Business Email

    Reviewed on 2018/05/08

    Pros

    We use this mainly for the email for our business. We were able to use our own domain name. It's easy to use and love the interface.

    Cons

    The sorting capabilities are a little limited. It's not easy to find the settings to forward your email to something like Outlook. I had to search for them.

    Pros

    I like customizable data management and adding data to dashboards and customizing them according to our needs. It doesn't need many codings, however, sometimes there might be glitches which can be sorted out with some help from coders

    Cons

    The price is a little bit costly however they'll provide a discount for non-profits. So it really helps.
