Are you programmer?
Do you need no-code tool?
Probably your answer is **no**. Sometimes you need a fast app prototype and sometimes a non-technical person asks you „how to build mobile apps?” Thunkable is the answer.

Thunkable is an interesting no-coding tool. An experienced programmer can use it to build prototypes. The application may also be interesting for non-technical people who want to understand the IT world. It is a nice idea to spend time with children and show them how you can use your phone. Children at school have contact with the Scratch language so Thunkable will be easy for them.
