The purpose of the live-stream and these notes is not to tell you which app development tool is best for you, but rather make you aware of what is possible and to signpost you towards a free tool that you can experiment with right away.
Alternative tools are available, and if you have the time you should certainly check some of them out to see what works best for you:
The best thing to do now would be to try some of the tools we've mentioned in previous live-streams see which ones work best for you, and then go from there.
