Making your own mobile app is now super quick and easy



Look, making an app that will run on your iPhone is hard.

Luckily, just made it chimp simple for normal folks like you or I to make a mobile app right on your iOS, Android or computer. You don’t need to download anything, learn to code, or even leave your touchscreen.

Make an app to show off your disco band, complete with links to Soundcloud, or share recipes with your friends, linking them to your favorite chef sites. Explain your passion project and connect your Twitter followers to a wealth of knowledge that you can curate on your very own mobile app.

Seriously, if you want to make a mobile app and have no clue about C++ or Xcode compilers or other such fooferaw, is your best bet.

An mobile app isn’t a native app, which means you don’t even need to submit anything to an App Store curator at Google or Apple. That said, any mobile app you make with is a smooth as silk HTML5 creation, a step forward into the post-appstore era.

The app you create is optimized for smartphones, but also works on tablets and computers, so it’s a truly cross-platform experience. Now whoever you share the app with will have instant access to your app wherever they are, on whatever device they want to use. You’ll be able to create the app once, and then update it as you like, and your end-users will never even have to worry about updates — it’s all web-based.

That does mean, however, that anyone using an app created with will need to be online to access it.

Still, if you want to make an informational app that runs on your mobile phone or Mac, is super easy, fast, and — better yet — free. There’s even a little page that features all the cool apps out there, so you can get ideas for your own creations.

All you need to do is head over to website and create an account. Once you do so, you’ll be making cool websites in less than the time it took you to read the above paragraphs.

The applications of this quick and easy app creation tool are limitless. So, whether you’re a kid who wants to share your passion for soccer, or a business owner who wants to put all her forms in one place for her mobile employees, is a fantastically smart way to do it.
