About The Free Trial

Every time you create a new app in Backendless, that app starts on a free 30-day trial of the Backendless Cloud 99 plan. What does the trial include? Read on to find out!

Here at Backendless, we are proud of the fact that we offer one of the most feature-rich no-code platforms on the market. As such, we want you to get a legitimate taste of that platform during your free trial.

When you create a new app on Backendless, you get a full, 30-day free trial of our highest-limit Cloud plan, Cloud 99.

Benefits Of The Free Trial

The beauty of our free trial is that it gives you a access to the full functionality of the Backendless platform. There are no features hidden or off-limits that you would otherwise get on a paid Cloud plan.

Additionally, every app you create starts on the free trial, not just your first app. That means you can easily test one of our many app blueprints (templates) for 30 days.

What this means is that a great way to learn various tools in Backendless is to spin up a new app or play around with a template that already includes that feature.

For example, you can learn how to build a custom calendar in UI Builder by creating a new app using the Small Business Booking app blueprint. Or you can learn user registration and login with our “Instagramless” Insta Clone blueprint. Or learn how to build a countdown timer using Codeless logic with our Countdown app blueprint.

Free trials are a great way to learn and test concepts without cluttering your primary app with items you don’t need long-term.

At The End Of The Trial

You can see how many days remain on the free trial in the bottom left-hand corner of the app.

When your trial comes to an end, you will see a red bar at the top of that app indicating that the subscription has expired. You will then have a few options.

Plan renewal options in Backendless Console
  1. Switch the app to the Springboard Plan – For new users, you can earn the Springboard Plan once by completing the requisite number of Missions. Otherwise, the plan can be purchased for a one-time fee. The Springboard Plan is designed for app still in development, with limitations on API access.
  2. Purchase a paid Cloud plan – If you’re ready to make your app live, or will be soon, you can hop onto a paid Cloud plan which enables full API access.
  3. Delete the app – If you just created the app to act as a playground or learning tool, you can simply delete the expired app and create a new one or work on your other apps that are on one of the aforementioned plans.
