Glitch vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

Developers describe Glitch as "The easiest way to build apps and bots". Combining automated deployment, instant hosting and collaborative editing, Gomix gets you straight to coding. The apps you create are instantly live, hosted by us, and always up to date with your latest changes. Build products, prototype ideas, and hack solutions to problems. On the other hand, Google App Engine is detailed as "Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications". Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

Glitch and Google App Engine can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
