During this time, the entire app was migrated from Flutter code to a combination of FlutterFlow and Xano, resulting in enhanced capabilities and a more robust backend infrastructure. However, the migration process was not without its challenges. Mateo needed to integrate complex business logic for his application and ran into road blocks in development. However, the release of FlutterFlow's updated action flow editor and by utilizing more extensive custom code, Mateo was able to finalize his application and launch to both the Google Play store & the App store.

IV. Results and Impact:
Since it's launch COIN has amassed over 10,000 downloads across platforms and maintaining an impressive 700+ monthly active users. User feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with an average rating of 4.0. Users particularly appreciate the app's excellent user experience and clean design. The app has empowered users to gain a better understanding of their expenses and overall finances, thanks to COIN's intuitive presentation of financial data.

V. Testimonial:
Mateos says the success of COIN can be attributed, in part, to the efficiency and convenience offered by the FlutterFlow platform. The app's developer had this to say about their experience working with FlutterFlow:

"FlutterFlow offers a super fast way to implement new features, and design during the development process. FlutterFlow also allows me to keep my focus on features, user experience, and the value I offer to my users."

The combination of FlutterFlow's tools and Xano's backend support has enabled the creation of a seamless financial management app.With its intuitive design, essential features, and the backing of FlutterFlow, COIN has empowered users to take control of their finances effortlessly.

COIN is one of the many examples of apps built by solo-entrepreneurs utilizing FlutterFlow's app development ecosystem to build faster than every before. As the app continues to evolve and introduce innovative features, Mateos hopes to build COIN into a top choice for individuals seeking a simple yet powerful tool to manage their money effectively.
