Do you know you can make a fortune out of those apps and games? Imagine this: your paid app may sell for a dollar. Every day, at least 50 people download it. In a month’s time, you can already have more than a thousand dollars in your account. Moreover, as long as the app is well designed and promoted properly, you can earn so much more! You can also use the apps and games to promote your own business or perhaps create more streams of income by working as a mobile advertiser on the side.
However, in general, before you can make an application, you need to have programming or coding skills. Unless you have a solid background or experience in IT, this is something you can’t do—unless you use a group of apps.
Yup, there are already apps that help you create apps and games even if your know-how on codes is almost zero. We provide you three examples today:
Buzztouch is one of the most popular apps for non-coding guys and girls out there. Its biggest come-on is the fact it’s completely for free. All you have to do is to create your own account, where you can save the different apps you have designed. It also has an incredible list of features that make app development such a breeze. The software also helps develop apps for either Android or iOS.
If there is one thing you have to remember, it’s that it doesn’t create apps for iTunes. No, your apps cannot be immediately uploaded and sold online. It also doesn’t compile codes for Xcode. However, it works along with the latter. The app from Buzztouch is designed in such a way it will be more convenient for you to export the codes to Xcode then you can already submit the app to iTunes.
The Buzztouch website has a very useful guide on how to install and run the software. The instructions are in layman’s term, so you won’t have any trouble following the steps. If you’re planning to have an Apple app, you’re going to need the SDK kit, which is specially created for potential developers like you.
App Inventor is a great tool to create apps for Android, especially after knowing this is actually backed by Google. This is still in its beta phase, so there are definitely a few kinks. But we already love this for the simple reason it reminds us of the first WordPress blogs we created—you know, in order to develop a “beautiful” page, we simply drag and drop widgets and blocks to our preferred menu bar.
App Inventor doesn’t rely on any bit of code. You don’t even have to use any kits at all. In an App Inventor, you’ll have the viewer, where you will find an empty box that acts as the phone’s interface. On the right side are palettes with buttons, labels, etc., you wish to add on your app. In the Blocks, you can do further editing, such as specifying the functions of the app. As soon as you master the use of Palettes and Blocks, you can start creating many apps in a short amount of time. App Inventor is currently tested in universities and colleges.
Code Canyon is also a great source of apps. The best thing about this website is you don’t have to do anything at all, unless you want to tweak some of the code’s parts, which is not advisable. The developers see to it the codes are working perfectly and meet your expectations. The only downside is these codes are not available for free. A mobile app may cost you around $15. If you want to have an extended license, the price can go as much as $75. Nevertheless, the app may be used for commercial or personal purposes.
Just because you have all these tools doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to learn even a fraction of programming. You can maximize Buzztouch, App Inventor, and Code Canyon if you have basic understanding of how and why things work that way. Besides, there are already a lot of free online courses to start your learning ball rolling.
