This is different from the whole lot as they are into app reselling, they manage an inventory of previously built apps which one can explore according to their business domain and need.

Though they are not into the customized in-depth experience which other platforms like BUILDER by Engineer.ai, Appy Pie or others provide, the functionality is somewhat similar from the buyer point of view and the final product is for sale on their platform.
