Create using AI

🏆 This is a premium feature

We are proud to offer a beta AI chatbot that can help you to get started on an App. This feature is still under development and we are working hard to improve it.

You must enter a detailed prompt in order for the feature to work. It can take between 30 seconds and 1 minute to generate an App.

Example prompt


The AI feature is still in development and may not work as expected. There is a good chance that there is an error while creating or editing your app.

Editing using AI

You can also edit your app using AI. While editing your app, you can click the brain icon button. This will open a dialog where you can enter a detailed prompt.

edit using ai

Please enter a detailed prompt and click 'Submit'. It can take between 30 seconds a 1 minute to generate an App.


This could drastically change your app. The AI model often makes mistakes. Please check your app carefully before REFRESHING or EXITING the page. If there are any errors you can revert back to the previous version of your app using the "Undo The Last Edit" button.
