Comments on Google Glide

“Still the best thing since sliced ​​bread. Because Glide is phenomenal in its simplicity and intuitiveness. The creator of this is a genius in my eyes. Because with Glide, anyone can make an app just like that, purely based on a Google Sheet. Yes, a Google Sheet. Fantastic! And since recent months it is even possible without a Google Sheet. Whoop Whoop!” Matthias Vermeulen, Belgium, 2021
