Google App Maker was a low-code application development tool, developed by Google Inc. as part of the G Suite family. It allowed developers or its users to build and deploy custom business apps on the web.[1]

Launched in 2016,[2] it was accessible to its users with any G Suite Business and Enterprise subscription and G Suite for Education edition.[3]

Google App Maker allowed users to drag and drop widgets into a visual editor with built-in templates. The apps could be customized using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery and Google's own material design visual framework.[4][5][6]

PC Magazine rated Google App Maker 3.5/5.[7]

Following Google's acquisition of AppSheet, the App Maker editor and user apps was shut down on January 19, 2021. New app creation was disabled on April 15, 2020.[8][9]
