Coda is a new type of doc, with a new type of mobile experience. Watch how the docs you build on desktop transform into apps on your phone or tablet.
Coda docs start simple like other docs — and grow and evolve into powerful tools. We’ve seen people build Coda docs that do everything from launch products, run companies, and remind you to water the plants.
What Coda docs are made of:
* A flexible writing surface
* Sections to build out different user flows.
* Tables that can talk to each other.
* Views, so everyone can see the data in their own preferred way.
* A powerful formula language to reference any object.
* Buttons and automations to take actions outside your doc.
* Packs to connect your doc to the apps you use every day like Slack, Google Calendar, and GitHub.

My prayers are answered
When I first learned how to use spreadsheet formulas, I thought it was magic. I’d hack a spreadsheet or a google doc for almost everything in life and work (trip planning, project tracking, notes... the list goes on). Now I use Coda for everything AND I DON’T EVEN NEED TO HACK IT. I made a CRM for my apartment search when I moved to Seattle. I planned a trip to Iceland with my mom so we could share our itinerary, expenses, reservations, and emergency info all in one place. I moved my family recipe database from a huge Drive folder to a single Coda doc with cute icons for every section. On a project tracker with my team at work, I made my own view for my tasks that still updates the main tracker when I change a status. Now with the app, I can pull up my recipes on my phone, use buttons to make status updates when I’m not at my desk, or get reminders from my habit tracker doc as push notifications. 🙏🏼 All I can say is YAS.
Coda is Life
I’ve been a beta user of Coda for nearly a year now. It has elevated almost every aspect of my team’s operations. Every workflow, every process, every project my team owns is now running on Coda. I can’t say enough about the power that Coda puts at your fingertips. Being able to take a blank sheet and build a near fully functional application-like document in the span of a day is revolutionary. I have almost zero technical experience. With the things I’ve been able to build with Coda, I could have you fooled.
Also, the team at Coda are extremely helpful. You really get the feeling that they care about you and that they want to solve problems right along with you.
I’m so excited for the launch of Coda 1.0 today!

My rating of the app does not reflect my rating of the CODA service
Coda is amazing. The idea for the app to turn docs into “mini apps” is absolutely a fantastic design implementation. However, there are significant issues that disrupt user joy.
1.) slowness of the app to load
2.) it says it works offline, but because it works so slowly, I don’t trust that it works offline
Slack’s app had this problem in the early days as well. The background app refresh often cause drafts to disappear and the app would reload causing you to lose your place. Incredibly frustrating because on mobile, you are constantly switching from one app to the next in order to get the information into its appropriate place.
The only feature this coda app needs is to load instantly to the last place you Had the app open.
Get rid of that stressful loading circle. Omg. If it works offline, then everything about this loading circle tells me that it doesn’t. I’ve never opened the app and seen the ring around less than 4 times. That means I’m literally counting to four. It’s 2020. Kill me.
Developers— please find pride in getting your screen changes to happen in less than 200ms.
Also the “going back to home” interaction. Takes a stressfully long amount of time to switch between coda docs.
That being said — I love the service. You are legends. Keep it up!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
