Can AppMakr Really Make an App Developer Out Of Anyone?
Although the App Store is exploding with new offerings on what seems to be a staggering daily basis, building and launching applications for the iPhone remain cumbersome if not virtually impossible tasks for the novice dabblers in programming and software development. That could change, however, with AppMakr, which aims to simplify and streamline the application building process.
Companies like WordPress and Six Apart created popular tools to let anyone become a blogger. Now startup PointAbout wants to do the same for building iPhone applications with a new service called AppMakr.
AppMakr promises to deliver a quality app in less than an hour for only $199. Users of the online service, formally launched today, enter a site Web site address or keywords and get back a sample iPhone app built with that content in less than 30 seconds, according to PointAbout.
For $499, users can also publish completely under their own brand and gain more control over app development through more extensive testing. Under this option, publishers set up their own Apple developer accounts, but the building, provisioning and management of apps is still handled by AppMakr.
