Can bubble support my idea?

I need to ensure the finish line is in sight!

I am creating an app and new to the Bubble platform. I am a personal development coach and creating a subscription/membership app and need to know if I am in the right place.

The main feature that my app needs to be able to do is showcase a daily coaching audio from me that will be replaced with a new audio recording every 24hr. I will be recording all the audio in bulk every week and will not be able to manually go in every day at midnight to take down and replace audio recording with the next days recording. I need this to be able to be automated and pulling from a library of that weeks recordings.
Is this possible to do within Bubble?

The other features that are required, are habit scoring and tracking with daily notifications to complete, a journaling section, and a coaching video section that will showcase a video of myself training how to improve in desired areas.

Having a community section where users can engage, encourage, support, and celebrate each other.


  • I would love to have daily prompts where certain tasks are in check list form and when completed, they receive points to gameify and encourage use.
    -A leadership board showcasing usernames who have the most points would be great and a way to “follow” other users to help hold each other accountable and know when they are completely daily tasks.

I would like to start app creation as soon as possible and need to know if this is able to be created in this platform, and if so what features will have to be “built out” and the estimated cost with that.

Thank you!

HI @nicholas.veitengrube
The very short answer is yes. Everything you wanted can be built with bubble.

Some details:

  1. There are many ways to do it, but a simple way would be to create an audio recording object, that will include the recording itself (or a link to it), the user/customer it is intended to, and when is it supposed to be uploaded. Then in the UI you can have a logic that always loads “today’s” audio file. Another way could be backend schedule that runs nightly and make changes to the data.

  2. Hart scoring and notifications… depends how you want to achieve that… Bubble are usually webapps (i.e. they are running on the customer’s browser) and oppose to natives apps that you download from the app/play store. You could create simple logic to notify the users when they are logged in to your app, you could also uses e-mail and SMS to notify users when they are not using the app (and encourage them to login). If you want to have a native app that uses the phone notification, you would need to wrap the your app and deploy to the App Store… there are many posts here on how to do it, and some companies will do it for you as a paid service. In my personal opinion is that if the goal is a native app you might want to consider Adalo instead , but I know some people here will disagree.

  3. The items in your “bonus” section are pretty straight forward to implement as well.

When you are discussing costs, it depends what you mean…
Are you developing it yourself? You would need to be a paid plan since sone of your requirements are will probably require more advance topics. You may also want to buy some plugins and integrate to some (paid) third party services for example to send e-mails and SMSs, to store media outside of bubble limited storage, etc… but it will probably end up being less than $100/month but you would need to spend time on it…
Are you planning to pay a company to develop this for you? It depends what would be your final kist of requirements and how complex you want your application to be but it could range from few hundred dollars to few thousands dollars to get an initial application. I think most developers (myself included) will work with you on whatever budget you have and can give you a solid estimate of what can be achieved within that budget.
