It’s not a big issue overall but it needs to be addressed.
There really is no shortage of companies offering this kind of service; we easily found more than 30.
Update: the app has now been launched, check it out here. This company started in 2011, allowing their users to create apps for i OS, Android, Windows Phone and also pure HTML5 apps.
Because of its wide feature range getting the hang of this app builder will take more time than most of the others..
We like: Their templates are very elegant and they offer plenty of options to tweak the designs. Where they should improve: pricing of course as it’s not affordable for smaller businesses.
It also took us quite some time to get to grips with the editor – the UI could be a more intuitive. App Machine automates as many tedious processes as possible.
Just give them your website’s URL and they will import everything they deem useful for your app.
However, no other provider allows you to get a real app for free. What we liked: very competitive prices and plenty of templates to choose from. What they should improve: technical hiccups need to be taken care of, the templates can be a bit restrictive.
In order to be able to actually submit your app to one of the app stores you need to be on, at least, their Basic plan.
