Introduction to Make apps

Make is a no-code integration platform. Make connects multiple apps in a scenario to process and transfer data between them. In addition, Make runs your scenarios automatically on schedule.

The advantage of Make is that you don't need to be a coder to share data across apps. Read more about how Make works.

What are Make apps?

Make apps are the integrations of third-party APIs or Make utilities. Each app consists of modules.

Types of Make apps

Make divides apps into app types based on their origin:

  • Make developed apps: apps created by Make,

  • custom apps: apps made by Make users in the Apps Platform,

  • add-on apps: apps shared on the Apps Marketplace.

Make developed apps

Make developed apps are developed and maintained by Make developers. You can use these apps in any scenario. Make developed apps further differ in their availability in Make pricing plans:

  • standard apps: All Make users can use standard apps.

  • premium apps: Users in organizations with the Core plan or higher can use premium apps.

    The premium apps are in the scenario editor marked with a label:

  • enterprise apps: Users in organizations with the Enterprise plan can use enterprise apps.

    The enterprise apps are in the scenario editor marked with a label:


Make custom apps

Custom apps are developed by other Make users. Custom apps are available to Make users based on their visibility:

  • private apps: The custom app developer and users in all organizations they are part of can use the app.

  • invite-only apps: Access to the app is on an invite-only basis. The app developer has to share an invite link with you.

  • Make verified apps: The app has been approved by Make. All Make users can use verified apps in their scenario.


Make verified apps go through extensive review process. Although made by Make users, verified apps have to adhere to Make apps development best practices and have to be actively maintained.

Make verified apps have the same level of quality as Make developed apps. In addition, verified apps are frequently created by the owners of the web service.

In the Make platform, there is no visual distinction between a Make verified app and a Make developed app.

Make add-on apps

Make add-on apps are developed by other Make users. In contrast to Make verified apps, the add-on apps don't go through the app review process to be approved by Make. Instead, these apps are developed by Make partners and power users who have to take dedicated training.

The add-on apps are shared as part of the Apps Marketplace. You can check all the add-on apps on the Make Apps & services page when you filter to show the add-on apps only. In the scenario editor, you can identify the add-on apps by the add-on label:


Add-on apps may require an additional purchase to use. Make does not earn money or commission on these purchases. You purchase the add-on apps directly from the developer.


The Apps Marketplace is currently in the beta stage. Support, maintenance and monetization of an add-on app is the responsibility of the add-on app developer.
