What makes Bubble great Digital Storytelling tool?

What makes Bubble special? Bubble is a visual programming language that lets you build web applications without code. Using Bubble, you can build a fully functional web application, such as a sharing platform, a marketplace, a social network, or a CRM tool, both for internal and customer-facing situations.

No-code platforms like Bubble use drag-and-drop visual workflows, without requiring them to write code. For anyone with a programming background or even advanced Excel knowledge, no-code can also dramatically reduce production time. This became critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, and remains important in the face of ongoing crises.

As shown in the example of Storytracks, using an app is a brilliant way to tell stories of people, locations, show heritage of an area and even plan tours. When designing an app around the stories that you want to share and collect, the advantage is that the tool you are making is completely adjusted to these ideas and will most likely produce a loyal audience. The only down side used to be the complexity of such a task. However, but that is no longer the case.

It is now possible to enable users to record, upload, and playback videos. All of that is possible without writing code thanks to Bubble, since they have made it super easy to support video creating on your site by integrating Ziggeo as a plugin on Bubble.

Tour operators often turn to Bubble for their custom web apps, with a custom booking portal for their tours.
