What do you like best?
Definitely has a learning curve since there are so many features and many different ways to achieve the same outcome, but good support docs and a very active community to share knowledge/best practise. Lots of data source options available, with great Google integrations which will only get stronger presumably, now Appsheet is a Google owned company. Fun to use!
What do you dislike?
UX options are slightly limited but these are improving gradually.

We use Appsheet to run the logistics for our Ski Touring and Mountaineering holiday company (Alpine Guides Ltd). Our app is mainly used on desktop and manages various aspects of the business that are not handled by our booking/payment system and accounting software. These aspects were previously managed via a series of connected spreadsheets which were very tedious to use and so we were always on the lookout for a better way, without spending tens of thousands on a bespoke/inflexible system. Appsheet has helped us accomplish this and handles everything else including accommodation bookings (mountain huts and hotels across the Alps and all the other locations we guide in), IFMGA guide/other supplier bookings/contracts and payments, and client communications/joining instructions.
During Covid our business has been taking a short break until normal travel can resume - whenever that may be...! In the downtime I have used Appsheet to help some other local UK companies to manage their workflow, invoicing and client communications to help kickstart their own business recovery after lockdown. These include workshop management and customer order/warranty tracking for a ski shop, job management and customer communications for an electrical contractor, and contract/site management for a large local Arborist (tree surgery) company.
Appsheet is fantastic in its versatility, and seems to be getting better month by month, with a very active and supportive developer team.
