Welcome to v.one. This guide contains everything you need to start creating amazing apps with v.one, the easiest no-code app builder.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to:
Design apps that people love to use
Add monetizable elements to your app
Publish your app as a web app
Ready? Let’s get started.
1. Add a functional database
Database?! The mere mention of the word database can bring images of server rooms, endless wires, and complicated computer programming. Don’t worry! We’ve simplified the process as much as we possibly can. All you have to do is create an account over at Airtable and then follow this simple tutorial. Once you’ve integrated your Airtable database into v.one, you are ready to get started.

Note: You must use the v.one database template. You can’t use your own. Sorry!
2. Designing an app
Turns out that designing an app that is functional and beautiful is much easier than you think. We have made the process even simpler by integrating with Canva. Canva is a drag-and-drop design tool loved by professionals around the world. You can use the Canva integration with basically every module inside v.one.
Not sure how to create a delightful experience for your users? No problem, we’ve included UX-ray mode to give you tidbits of user experience insight as you go along.
3. Add monetization modules to your app
You can use the Discovery and Member’s Only modules to add monetization options to your app. The Discovery module allows for in-app purchases while the Member’s Only module allows you to hide your content behind a paywall. You’ll need to have a Stripe account in order to receive funds into your bank account. Stripe is the preferred payment method for millions of creators. Learn more about them here.
Note: v.one does not take a cut from what you make!
4. Publish your app to the web
Once your app is ready to see the light of day, you can publish it to the web. This will create a web app version of your app. Your users can use it on their mobile devices or desktop/laptop computers.
You can publish your app to the web for free as many times as you want. But remember, when you make a change to it in v.one, the changes don’t appear automatically on your app. You must publish it again.
Publishing your app as a web app is the quickest and easiest way to get an app live in the real world that you can share with users and test as needed.
And that’s it!
That’s how simple it is to create an app in v.one!
