What is Airtable for?

What exactly is Airtable for? I’m making a game where users have data that is saved. Can I use Airtable to save this data using the API? Or am I confused on what Airtable is intended to be used for?

You wouldn’t want to use Airtable for that. Airtable is meant to be a database that is used directly in its interface as if it were a spreadsheet. It’s good for small-medium scale project management and team coordination kind of stuff. It is not meant for heavy API traffic.

For an app back-end, you’ll want to use something like Firebase.
