About Thunkable

Thunkable is a drag and drop tool to build native Android and iOS Apps. We’re on a mission to democratize mobile app development and empower everyone to build their own app without ever writing a single line of code.

With the average person spending more than 3 hours a day on mobile phone and 85% of that time in apps, Thunkable wants to empower every person to be able to develop his or her own mobile apps and join one of the largest community of first-time developers building mobile apps.

By 2020, 6 in 10 of us will have smartphones but only 1 in 2000 will have the training to tell our smartphones what to do. At Thunkable, we believe everyone can be a developer, not just those with formal computer science training. We currently have 650K+ users in every country of the world who have built 1.5M+ apps, and that number is growing everyday!

If you are excited by the idea of democratizing mobile app development, love bringing ideas to reality through mobile apps and want to help others to do the same we’d love to talk to you!
