Free Mobile and Android app maker
Mobile is taking over the desktop usage and time spent on mobile or smartphones are seeing constant and rapid growth.
Before you decide to build your first mobile app, your first most important task is to define or know the reason you want to create an app to begin with. Once you do this and write this down or know it, the rest of the process becomes easier.
There are many app builders available today, some of them paid and some of them free. Today we are having a look at the app builder given below.
Yes you thought it was closed down but its back again. the popular google app inventor is back thanks to Mit.edu who have brought the “appinventor” back to the people to enable them to make apps without having to dip into their pockets for cash.
There are other online mobile app makers like widgetbox , but they charge anyway from $25 per month/per app to $100 per month /per app which can be a bit too pricey for a average user. i have done a demo app building on their interface and its pretty easy to make a mobile app at widgetbox
The app inventor from Mit.edu is free to use, though it does not have the advanced interface like widgetbox
There is another online app builder called http://ibuildapp.com/ as well but i have not checked it out.
