Ready to start a new business in 2023?
This post contains 16 Web app ideas that you can start building today, without knowing how to code.
Let’s get started!
1. Niche food-delivery app
Ordering food online can be a true nightmare for people with allergies or dietary restrictions.
By focusing on a specific dietary restriction, you can carve out a profitable niche in an otherwise saturated market.
Also, by niching down, you can ensure that the information that you’re providing is more accurate than that of bigger more generalist competitors.
The cool part about it is that you can start building an app like this Today, without knowing how to code. To get started, head over to the Wized cloneable section and copy the Finsweats project.
2. Local job board app
Does your town or country have a job board? If not, this might be a great business for you to start. Searching for local talent on social media or big platforms like Upwork, is not the easiest thing to do. There will always be a flood of irrelevant listings for both companies, and individuals.
By creating a local job board or freelancing platform, you could help lots of people save time.
It’s also much easier to start ranking on Google locally than globally.
If this idea sounds cool to you, you’ll be thrilled to hear that you don’t have to start from scratch. You can bootstrap this business for free with Wized.
3. Create an on-brand course
If you want to start selling your knowledge, a great way to start is by creating an online course.
Nowadays, anyone can upload their course to teachable or Udemy. Unfortunately, these platforms are not tailored for any type of content, and there are only a few customization options.
The cool part is that you can easily get around this issue, and build your own course with Webflow, and Wized.
You can design and develop your website in Webflow, and then simply add logic to it with Wized. With Wized, you can add user accounts to any webflow website, protect pages and much more.
You can get started for free.
4. Custom membership site
A membership site can be a brilliant way to share your expertise, build a community, and to create a nice income for yourself.
In 2022. there are plenty of ways to get started with memberships. There are lots of platforms out there from Patreon to Onlyfans.
Membership sites are a great fit for you if:
- If you have in depth knowledge you want to teach on a subject
- If you already have an audience, and you want to create an exclusive area.
- You’re in a position to cultivate a niche community of people
If you care about delivering a unique experience to your users, you can also build a custom membership site with no-code tools.
5. Local house renting app
Competing against giants like Airbnb or Booking.com is really hard. However, if you’re competing locally, and you focus only on long term rentals, you might stand a fighting chance.
Since all of the locations are within reach, you could ensure that the quality of images is as high as possible.
Maybe you could even create video walkthroughs of the properties, or virtual 360 tours.
This way, the users know exactly how the place will look.
How many times did it happen to you that you booked a place, just to find out that the location doesn’t look nearly as good in real life.
If this sounds like a cool business to start, sign up for Wized, and start building your pixel-perfect app without code.
6. Local freelance marketplace
How do companies in your area find talent? Is there a cool platform out there, or does everything boil down to who knows whom?
If the latter is true, maybe this is a great business for you to start. Searching for local talent on social media or big platforms like Upwork, is not the easiest thing to do.
There will always be a flood of irrelevant listings for both companies, and individuals.
And hiring the CEO’s uncle’s best friend’s son, is not always the best idea.
By creating a local freelancing platform, you could help lots of people save time.
It’s also much easier to start ranking on Google locally than globally.
If this idea sounds cool to you, you’ll be thrilled to hear that you don’t have to start from scratch. You can bootstrap this business for free.
7. Learning path quiz
Help users discover their optimal learning path. Start by building out a form and asking questions about the person, and offer personalized resources based on the answers.
You could offer courses, books, blogs or any other useful resources to aid the user’s learning.
The easiest way to get started with a business like this is by picking a niche.
8. Recipe suggestion based on the availability of your ingredients
Not everyone is an intuitive cook.
Taking a look at the fridge and coming up with a tasty recipe isn’t easy for most people.
This is where this app idea comes in.
The web app would work like this:
- The user would add a list of ingredients
- The web app would scan a database of recipes and ingredients.
- The web app would return a list of recipes that can be made with these ingredients.
You could even go a step further, and let users filter the results based on dietary restriction.
This type of app would save users a lot of time and headache.
With these tools, you can create a gorgeous app without writing a single line of code.
9. A web app for swapping goods
The truth is, people love free stuff!
Just remember how you felt the last time when you needed a tool, and someone gifted it to you.
With this app, you could let users exchange items between each other.
Not only would your users love it, but it would also help to reduce waste.
If you’re going to build an app like this, I would suggest to start with a niche. Here are a few niching ideas:
- Category based: f.e. Pokemon cards
- Area based: f.e. swapping goods in Sacramento
- Profession based: f.e. necktie exchange for business executives.
An app like this would be incredibly easy to build even if you don’t know how to code.
With Xano, Webflow and Wized, you could build an app like this in no time.

All you’d have to do is curate content to employees based on the companies requirements.
Is it possible to build something like this without code?
11. Ride sharing for people with dogs
If you have a dog, getting a ride is not always easy.
Your app could let people make money giving dog owners lifts. You could start by letting people write where they are driving, and others where they need to go. All you would have to do is offer a simple way for users to contact each other if they’re a good fit.
To get started, you don’t need to add any blow’s and whistles like route planning, and integrating interactive maps.
You could build your MVP without code, and if the app get’s traction, you can always hire a developer to help you improve the experience.
In the early stages, the most important thing is to get feedback and improve.

12. Old furniture giveaway web app
Getting rid of old furniture is a clumsy and exhausting process. You have to contact a friend or family member to help you carry and dispose it... Well maybe you could build an app that helps users bypass this hassle.
The users who want to get rid of old furniture could list all the stuff they no longer need.
Others who need to decorate their apartments could give this furniture a new home.
To build this type of web app, all you need is a form that let’s users submit relevant information. This is incredibly easy to do with no-code tools like Wized and Webflow.
13. Car insurance comparison
Your app could help users pick the cheapest and most convenient car insurance.
What’s more, if you set up collaborations with insurance companies, you can get a hell of a commission.
Most insurances nowadays have some sort of REST API available, or they have a list of variables that they use in order to calculate their prices.
If this info is not publicly available, you can always contact the companies. In most cases they will be happy to collaborate with you if you can bring some more customers their way.
As complicated as this project sounds, you could build it out without knowing how to code. With Xano as your database, Make.com as your backend and Webflow + Wized on the front end, you could build an app like that without problems!

Especially if you’re an agency, and you charge hourly on occasions.
Just imagine if you could build your own app that would help you set this process on autopilot.
Well, the cool thing is, you can! Even without coding.
We’ve built a free template that you can clone, and use as a starting point.
Here’s how it works:
- Freelancers or team members select a project
- Then they assign the number of hours they worked
- You get all of that info sorted in an Airtable base
- You can use formulas to calculate hourly rates and set due dates
15. Local deals and coupons web app
Let users find the best deals from local shops. You let companies to give you discount coupons, and in return you help them land more customers.
Discount coupons are incredibly easy to track, so it wouldn’t be hard for businesses to pay you a commission whenever you help them land a sale.
On the other hand, local’s could scroll through your site, and find amazing deals in seconds.
Building an app like this is easier than you think.
