Hi everyone,

 

I am very new to this program and I'm wondering if Dreamweaver can help create a desktop app, not a website. Is that possible? If it isn't are there any alternatives? I've been using Adobe XD and just realized that I need another application to code up an application or an actual developer to code it for me. Thoughts? Help would be greatly ppreciated. Thanks!

You'll need a specialized developer.

DW can help you code whatever you want, for the internet, but even then you have to bring the coding knowledge to the party yourself. It's basically a glorified text editor with some site management functions, and third party bolt-on extras built into it.

That's like saying I'm going to build a boat...   What type of boat?  Is the boat to be used on rivers, lakes or open seas?   

 

Similarly, there are many different types of apps for various devices & on various operating systems.  You need to be a lot more specific about what you have in mind. 

 

As @Jon Fritz II said, DW is merely a coding tool.  Your success with any tool will depend on your coding skills and what you're trying to build.
