I do have to agree it can be a bit shocking to see the differences in price and try to but a value on the extra features you get with each one. They have their own costs for things on their end and they need to make a profit too but it does seem steep. For example, last I checked 10gb of storage was $10 a month? That seems so steep and I’d much rather go to AWS and get 100gb for around the same if not less. I understand they need to make a profit but I feel personally (and I in no way claim to understand how their pricing ideology works) that for those less technical, the huge cost of storage and plans can be an absolute deal breaker when they learn they have to implement something like aws. Often this means hiring a developer who understands how it all works, which can then add hundreds if not thousands of dollars in development.
It does feel like bubble can get very expensive very quickly if you need anything more than the bare minimum.
On the other side of the coin, I love bubble. The power it gives me to follow my dreams is something I just cant find anywhere else. It is so powerful, the support team seems to be super active and helpful, the community is one of the most helpful I’ve seen anywhere in any space and the constant patches, immediate attention to bugs and new features coming out almost every week is such an encouraging and positive thing to see as someone who wants to earn a living using the tools bubble has created. Whilst I think bubble has a lot of room for improvement in the area of customer happiness, ease of use and accessibility for those less technical, I think where they are right now is amazing and they’ve done an amazing job and they should genuinely be congratulated for that. Seeing what the team has done for the past 4 years, I have no doubt it’s only up from here for everyone using bubble.
