Apps, apps, apps. Some are good, some are bad. They’re money-making machines and only growing in popularity with each passing day. So the question is, should you build an app for your business? Is it essential to have an app that caters to your customers?
You might be in a situation where you’re thinking, “Yes, I want to make an app that caters to my customers. I have a great idea, but no way to execute it!” You might not know how to code, or just don’t have the time to do all that coding.
Well, have I got some good news for you. Several businesses have cropped up that offer a simple way to create your own apps without knowing anything about coding! Let’s take a look at a few of them!
It’s drag and drop! Remember Geocities? Drag and drop is where it’s at! Easy as you please. EachScape can create native iOS and Android apps, and has announced a new offering specifically designed for the SMB marketplace. EachScape is offering a DIY environment that enables companies to quickly and easily build and manage applications and bring them to market.
App builders can select from a variety of starter modules and use pre-configured components to build apps that will work seamlessly across the fragmented mobile environment. As a complement to its successful enterprise-grade app creation and management platform, this product allows SMBs an unlimited number of apps, users and builds for less than $1000 per month.
It’s not quite drag and drop, but it’s dead simple. There are a number of modules and types of apps you can choose from and you simple pick what you want in the app and ignore what you don’t. You can fill it with content from your website, or create what you like in the app builder. Include mapped directions, videos, podcasts and more. It costs $49 a month. It’s significantly cheaper, but less powerful!
Other companies you might want to consider are AppMachine and AppBaker. If you want to make a game, and you know some code, but not enough to code an entire app, check out GameSalad. It makes no sense to me, but I’m told someone who knows how to code will find it quite zippy to learn!
If you’ve made an app with one of these companies before, let us know which one is best in the comments below!
