Zoho Creator vs Caspio: Key differences

  • Solution building
  • Ease of low-code
  • Report building
  • Developer tools

Solution building

Zoho Creator

The Creator platform provides drag-and-drop form, page, workflow, and script builders.

The form builder has 30+ different form fields to choose from. You also get a report automatically created for you whenever data is input into the forms.

The page builder offers prebuilt page templates, which you can customize. You can also embed custom JavaScript widgets into your Creator pages.

The point-and-click workflow builder allows you to build workflows without coding.

The script builder allows you to build scripts by dragging and dropping code snippets.

Using these builders, you can leverage the Creator platform to develop apps without prior training.

Apart from building apps, you can build solutions on Creator for your analytics and integration needs. Analytics is our powerful BI and reporting tool, and Flow is for integrating Creator with hundreds of external apps. Creator also offers an application lifecycle management feature, to oversee your solutions from conceptualization to deployment, and even maintenance.

Caspio

Caspio's app building model depends on creating DataPages. These pages contain various elements embedded in them, such as charts, forms, and calendars. To build apps in Caspio you need to know how to leverage these DataPages efficiently.

Caspio, though providing a point-and-click interface to create forms, views, and DataPages, is not as user-friendly when compared with Creator's easy-to-use, drag-and-drop solution-building capabilities. Caspio does not have any application lifecycle management features, such as those offered by Creator.

Ease of low-code

Zoho Creator

Zoho Creator is a low-code rapid application development platform. Apart from the provided drag-and-drop solution-building toolsets, if you want to implement custom logic, tailor-made to your unique business requirements, then that is also possible. For this, Creator offers a very high level (meaning having a syntax similar to English) scripting language called Deluge. The platform also offers a unique, drag-and-drop Deluge code snippet IDE. With this innovative IDE, you drag and drop code blocks, and only need to input your scripts' variable names.

Caspio

Caspio is a no-code platform. This means that, besides what the platform provides by default, you cannot have any customizations of your own. You are limited to the capabilities offered by the Caspio platform, with very few ways to implement custom logic tailor-made to your unique business requirements.

Report building

Zoho Creator

Creator offers powerful report building capabilities. You can use one of our many built-in report types, or build one from scratch. It also supports creating different record templates, and you can change the visualization of the reports and their data in live mode. Report views include map, calendar, timeline, spreadsheet, and Kanban. PDFs can also be easily generated.

Caspio

Caspio offers point-and-click report builders with limited room for customizing reports.

Developer tools

Zoho Creator

Creator, being a low-code platform, offers several developer-friendly tools for engineering solutions. It offers an Android and iOS SDK, to create custom Android and iPhone apps. You can also configure gesture customization for handhelds, with 80+ gestures available. App logs and audit trails provide a granular view into what's going on with your apps. You can also publish rebranded iOS and Android apps without coding. You can even create PWAs—progressive web apps—automatically. And all Creator apps run on Zoho's own secure cloud.

Caspio

Caspio, being a no-code platform, offers limited tools for developers. Unlike Creator, SDKs for iOS and Android are not supported. Caspio runs on the AWS cloud. You can embed Caspio apps on any website, courtesy of its DataPages concept, and, like Creator, it has a marketplace for apps.
