What types of apps is PowerApps appropriate for?

I have a lot of experience with Access VBA, C++ development, and limited experience with C# and XAMARIN Forms.  I am brand new to PowerApps.  I am interested in learning more about PowerApps and have a project that would involve about 10 lookup  tables, 4 or 5 main tables, Two moderate forms  (Sub forms, simple code), and several single table minor forms for maintaing the lookup tables. 

 

Does this sound like something  PowerApps could handle?

 

Any limitations? Gotchas? I ought to be aware of before using PowerApps?  At what level of complexity does it choke?

@mx Sorry mate, but this isn't a game of keeping score. In this particular case Microsoft and PowerApps has actually acknowledged this limitation as just that, a limitation, see below.

@JRaasumaa   It would appear that you are keeping score. Let it go.

This is a problem no matter how you slice and dice it.

This is not the first time that Microsoft has called a bug a 'limitation' !
