What can you build with Knack?

07/23/2012 Posted by Brandon

Claiming that Knack enables anyone to build their own web application and online database is a bit like magic. After all, your definition of a web app could be incredibly creative, or just much different than ours.

So we want to start listing examples of different web apps built by Knack. This should help present an idea of the type of apps that work well with Knack and may even provide some use cases very similar to what you’re looking for.

We’ll be listing apps in two main areas: a Demo Library with plenty of working examples you can play with; and a Current Apps tag here on this blog where we’ll describe actual apps built by Knack users.

Here’s a list of some current apps being used by our beta users:

  • Talent Database – A talent agency is using Knack to manage all of their models and actors in an online database. The models can update their own information leading to more accurate and timely info, and using filters makes searching through thousands of models a breeze.
  • Class Management – A dance studio is using Knack to manage all of their classes and students in a single web application. Parents can register for classes directly online and reports on classes and contacts can easily be generated.
  • Inventory Management – A cattle ranch is managing all of the animal inventory online. Weights are frequently imported a reports can be generated to track all inventory counts.
  • Customer Database – An IT consultant tracks their customers so they can easily pull up any server and computer info on a job, make notes, and generate invoices.
