When our company first started moving onto the direction of using Sharepoint, we didn't know anything about PowerApps. I came on board and honestly, first time user then, I started discovering it's hidden powers. The lovely customizations that you can implement to the Forms in Sharepoint is incredible, there are several items on them that you need employees to go into and edit fields but with PowerApps you can customize which fields they can see and which ones they can see but cannot edit. You can also change the order of the items you're adding to each form and lock it up as needed. The App you can create for mobile phones is real nice, simple to create and simple to make it connect to its data sources as well as to add/remove more. Also, versatile to incorporate calculated fields using its formatting or logical formulas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

PowerApps has been giving us a hard time when running it with Google Chrome. The authentication just doesn't seem to work for us, we have been relying on an alternative browser every time we have needed to create or modify any project. We have not reached out to a support team since based on the nature of the problem, is not a Microsoft problem but could be a setting on our default browser. Other than that, what's not to like?

What do you like best?

Power Apps is a great tool when you're after the creation of business apps. It's quick and easy to design and develop. There were certain instances when the team would ask me to create 3-4 proof of concepts for client presentation and demo the following day, if you were to use other platforms that makes use of custom development, you certainly wouldn't be able to achieve this feat in a day or less. Power Apps allows you to connect to multiple data source such as excel, sharepoint, cds, etc. It also has many different connectors that you can include during development. I'm a current user of this product and have been using it since December 2017 and am an active member in the forums. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though Power Apps is powerful and offers you the capabilities to develop quick and implement fast. It still has certain limitations that forces you to create work arounds. With my 2 years of experience using the product to its fullest, i've experienced the terrors of developing my applications with very unstable internet. Trust me when I say how much of a hassle it is trying to edit the contents of your properties with slow internet connection, sometimes the changes you made aren't applied even after you've spent minute writing it. The other thing with Power Apps that I found a hassle was you can't work on the same application as your teammate, because only one user can access the app's edit mode at a time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product to learn, quick and easy to master. Stay updated by reading the release notes as their are always frequent updates. Fast pace and always evolving. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Development has always been a problem for companies especially when they're hungry to make a sale, by the time they've completed their custom developed product, the client would've already gotten a different vendor. Power Apps solves that with its quick and easy to develop capabilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

While it is nice seeing Microsoft finally tapping into the low code realm and even the automation and RPA realm, i expected much more from them. Not having a BPMN tool as part of the Microsoft echosystem is a true loss. Having that would allow Microsoft to defeat absolutely any system out there. Its a start i guess. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While its a start, its broken and unreliable. I cannot recommend using Power Apps for business applications. The poewr platform is not a unified system, and users need to create flows separately and apps separately, flow by itself is unreliable and therefore it deems the whole Power Apps usage kindof risky for business use. The other problem i have with Power Apps is that we do not get all of its features and connectors even though we are E5 subscribers! Microsoft expects us to pay for that as well. This is where they made a big mistake and made us stear away from the product altogether. I really wish Microsoft would one day provide a BOM solution based on BPMN which would allow us to create complex applications using internal connectors to Microsoft echo system in addition to external data sources (without getting into the micro-transaction method we currently see with power apps). E5 is your premium license, with that should come EVERYTHING, included! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

try before you buy, try a sample of each scenario you wish to test. In my testing i found the functions library very poor, like you can detect internet connectivity but nothing else in regards to network statuses. While it has some nice features and is indeed usable, i cannot name it a successful low code paplication builder due to the fact that it lacks a true process modeler. For apps to have a logical flow of approval or what not, you need to use FLOW, and flow is not stable, and lacks many features of doing external connections and actions. Would love to see Microsoft imlement a BPMN process builder within flow and opens external connections for E3 and E5 users without expecing us to pay yet another premium on it! Furthermore, there is no true support for Power Apps, the support you get is only through the community, even when we voice our requirements, it takes years until our voice is heard, same thing goes to Power Bi. Wish there was a proper support which reads and listens to our complaints and requests. I'd love to try and use Power Apps with external systems and data sources, but am not willing to invest yet more for what was marked as "Premium" features of Power Apps, this Micro Transaction logic should not be used by Microsoft. It loses business more than anything... Not to mention it only works for internal employees and not for external anonymous users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since the workflow engine is not stable and we get failures on the workflows, we never reached to the phase of using if for business applications. Furthermore, even though we have E5 licenses, we still cannot use Power Apps for tapping to external data sources, this is really sad to see and does not show that Microsoft appreciates its customers even at the E5 level!

Speed of design and proof of concepts as well as the ease of use when connecting to multiple datasources Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the more heavy footprint applications that handle large datasets require some thinking outside the box in order to efficiently and effectively work with data so the simplicity of the app is sacrificed and the maintainability of it can become difficult.

The absolute best part of Power Apps is the template based system. Our organization went from having zero IT ticketing system (everything was sent to IT department through emails) to having a full fledged Help desk app integrated into outlook.

PowerApps helps you create anything you can think of. Tools like attendance monitoring, sales tracker, project management, process automation or even your own diary can be made using PowerApps, and the big suprise is that you only need to code less since it has a drag and drop feature. It offers an additional AI capabilities that you can use like text recognizer and object detector which makes it more to the next level. Since I'm Power BI enthusiast, PowerApps helps me bring a high quality reports and dashboard with the customer since it fills what Power BI lacks like having a write back functionality.

What do you like best?

microsoft power apps is an awesome low code app development tool that fits in nicely with the entire microsoft ecosystem of applications such as dynamics, sharepoint, excel, outlook, and automate. We use this to interact in a variety of ways with sharepoint lists to allow users quick access via applications placed in microsoft teams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The user interface for setting up new applications could be designed a little better with more options on sizing . Better in app development help could be useful as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time and examine all the options available and do some pre planning on how to best integrate across the spectrum of microsoft products. Find spreadsheets users are updating manually and convert to powerapps for a streamlined and more controllable interaction. use the community boards that are available as the creators are always willing to share best tips and practices Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have various Sharepoint lists that we keep different data in such as office supply requests, production team resources, basic inventory check in/out management and more. Users interact with these lists via powerapps that we have created to control access and functionality. These apps are placed within Teams so users have everything at their fingertips without moving in and out of different products. power users with limited code skills can still dive in and contribute.

What do you like best?

No knowledge of programming is required, and the interface makes it very easy to design as you go. It is pretty easy to get a handle on if you are used to writing excel formulas, as formulas are the primary way you get your app to function. I also love how it integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft Apps. For my most complex app, made for a fortune 500 Fin-Tech company, I integrated SharePoint, Excel, Teams, and Flow. It all runs smoothly. Troubleshooting is also very easy as Power Apps lets you know exactly what the issue is in the formula bar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There isn't enough training available. Due to this the learning curve was steep, and I had to do a lot of trial and error to get things working. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary challenge I used Power Apps to solve was to create a repository for tracking projects, where everyone could access. The former mechanism resided on our secure drive, but we had taken on a new team that did not have the security privileges to be added to the secure drive. With Power Apps, I was able to build an app to track all these projects. The app resided on MS Teams, which everyone could access. Another benefit was that this new infrastructure was very portable as it could be accessed on tablets, desktops, or smartphones. I also loved the integration with Microsoft Flow, as we were able to set up a flow to notify the project owner and a manger if a project needed attention. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Using PowerApps doesn't require programming knowledge and it allows enables Users to create business form very easily . In no time using PowerApps user can create Mobile Apps / Forms interacting with any other platform like SharePoint/SQL etc. Availability if hundreds of Out of box connector makes this tool so powerful that it can be used for creating forms which can pull and push data and show on the form with minimal configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The PowerApp forms need to be improved little bit as with complex form with multiple controls on it make form bit slow. Apart from that I think the there should be more flexibility for developer to design the fancy forms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is great tool provided by Microsoft which is offered as Platform as a Service. Pricing is very low and comes with Office 365 licence.

we have developed many apps for our sales personals who collects data from vendors. This was a great app which we developed and was configured on the device provided to sales team. This app was developed within a month with almost no cost as we all of our users had Office 365 licence.

Apart from that we have used PowerApps form to replace legacy Infopath form on SharePoint online site which provided more flexibility in terms of getting data from different sources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

PowerApps help you focus more on the functional aspects, logical implementation, theme design and other business aspects of the application rather than focusing on how each and ever component of the application is made.It handles all the inner intricacies by itself.

Stay away, new pricing effective 10/1/2019 took our cost from $3,000 a year to $54,000 and Microsoft gave a 3 week notice of price change. Workflows was $165 a year now will cost us $30,000 a year,

Users was $3,000 a year, now will cost us $24,000 a year. I’ve been developing within Powerapps for the past 18 months for my company, it has great potential if Microsoft wasn’t so greedy (and we only have 50 employees).

Powerapps lets you create tailored apps for your business needs and can only be shared with those within your organisation.

The only issue I have with the Microsoft Powerapps web app is that it wasn't clear you had to manually save!

Being a No-Code platform for developement, Apps created will be free of issues like silly coding bugs, coding standard issues, and most importantly, updating to higher version issues as all these things are handled by PowerApps. PowerApps also let you create Apps really fast and easily. Plenty of templates are available with which you can customize the changes you need and you'll be ready to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

PowerApps is unable to handle large dataset. For example : If you are trying to fetch data from a Sharepoint list, initially you cant fetch more than 500 items. After tweaking some setting you can bring it upto a maximum of 2000 items. This much of limitations makes me steer away from PowerApps.

PowerApps also is very sluggish in rendering the changes back to the developement screen which can cause confusion while developing. Sometimes I had to save and publish and then reopen my app in edit mode to check if the update is happening. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not a complete tool yet. Still is good for fast deployment of apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how the different sections of a form or any other kind of component for that matter can be beautifully organized into cards which are very easy to manage. Arranging them as cards can help you with things like disabling or making them invisible together as a group - for all the items present within the card.

Microsoft has implemented the Gallery view properly which I fairly like because data inside Gallery is auto updated when changed in the back end like Sharepoint.

The feature to run the live app while developing is very convenient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I hate how bad PowerApps is at syncing data with their respective back end - be it an excel file or Sharepoint. Things are so horrible that sometimes if your logic is not working all you needed to do is copy the piece of code of logic , delete it and then again paste it for it to work - thats all you need to do to fix it and I am not ebven joking. PowerApps in its current state is very very unpredictable the way it behaves. I feel that presently, PowerApps is not ready to be used professionally.

I can go on all day about how bad the apps look when are completed. The resolution is horrible and components like buttons and textboxes look like they are from the 90s Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

PowerApps seem to work well with Microsoft flow. So automating email and other tasks from flow based on triggers from PowerApps is quite a reasonable thing to do.

PowerApps working together with Dynamic365 gives a good experience for the developer while developing as he he can debug test run his app simultaneously.

There is a seperate section which shows which are the variables and collections in use and what all values are stored. This is very convenient.

There is a bunch of tools available to customize your app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There is huge list of things I dislike.

The integration with Sharepoint is very buggy. Sometimes it takes very long to fetch/send data. Sometimes it fails to show data it has fetched on the UI. This can cause a lot of frustrations.

There is not a whole lot of resources available which can help if you are stuck at some point.

The look and feel of the output apps is horrible by my opinion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

May not be the product for now. But Microsoft is looking to improve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PowerApps is mainly used by me to provide a more user friendly experince of a mobile/desktop application to the user, instead of him/her having to go through the complications of a Sharepoint page which will take some time for the user to learn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
