So You Want To Make An App..........

You just got that new iPhone, or maybe even that new Android, both platforms have some really great apps. You have an idea for an app, maybe one that you think people would like. Have you ever thought of designing your own app? I know what you are thinking, developing an app, would require a lot of work, maybe not though. Have you done a search on the subject? There are a lot of websites out there that will help you make the idea that you have, a reality.  They are called app makers.

First of all you have to go and register as a developer. Google charges $25 and Apple charges $99. Then once you’ve got that great idea floating around in your head for an app, try one of these app makers. Ordinarily developing an app requires hours of extensive programming language, but not with these app makers.  

 Once you have finished building your app, I know that you are going to want to freely distribute and publish it at the Mall instead of the Market or Store. That Mall can only be found at http://www.givemeapps.com/ Here is a few of those sites that I want to list for those of you who may be interested in this concept.

 Mobile App Loader:

There is absolutely no technical skills needed. They supply a simple app building wizard. Just follow the easy to use wizard, which they call the app in a snap and you are on your way. They will build and post your app directly to the App store. They offer a 10 day free trial. If you want after that, it cost just $8.99 a month.

App Makr:

AppMakr: This platform enables anyone to build apps using a simple point and click solution. It is a browser based platform that makes is simple to create and quickly build your own iPhone app quick and easy. There is no monthly cost.

appsbar: This is another free to use platform. It enables you to make either iOS or Android apps. The user has the ability to create  and publish their app for free.

Genwi: This is a feed aggregating app creation tool that allows you to create and manage your online identities, all on popular mobile devices in the cloud for popular platforms such as iPad, iPhone and Android. There is a free 30 day trial. However after that there is a $99 per month fee.

SwebApps: This enables you to build an iPhone app in minutes, using their advanced platform which provides a better  user experience than many other platforms out there.  There is however a one time developer fee of $399. After that there is also a $29 per month fee.

AppsGeyser: This is a free service that converts any web content into an Android app. You can also make money with advertisement in your apps.

Now what do you think? I would love to hear any comments or feedback that you may have. 



It will be really cool to design your own app and if its really good you can share it to a friend.

Yes, I am thinking of making one myself.
