So you want to build an application for the iPhone but don’t know where to start? You could hire a pricey developer, or (like nearly 2,000 others in the last week alone) you could turn to AppMakr, a service launching out of beta last week which is receiving a lot of buzz.
The AppMakr service enables anyone to create a mobile application using a “What You See is What You Get” WSYWIG interface. Users can enter a website URL or keywords and AppMakr will create a sample iPhone app in under 30 seconds built from that content. For a limited time, AppMakr is offering a $99 discount coupon through Janyuary 31st (use coupon “LAUNCH” at checkout.
Users can customize the iPhone application by adding content feeds (Twitter, RSS, iTunes podcast, Flickr, YouTube, etc.), changing the app’s branding (icon, splash screen, tab icons, header image, and text colors) and monetizing the app by charging for it on iTunes, or by including ads from AdMob or Medialets.
