On my quest to search for best app builder for multiple platforms, Google showed many websites. Many of them were easy to use but the flexibility factor was missing. Flexibility for your app to be used on multiple platforms at one go! Some even tried to make me a full-fledged “developer” by showing me their API and hell lot of coding. Though it wasn’t that difficult for me but I was looking for an easier platform for my readers.
As the quest was on, I landed into Apps-builder.com and believe me guys it was the one I was looking for. I know you will not believe me at one go so I am going to show you 3 simple steps of using this builder and you will be left with a powerful app for many platforms like Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, iPad and other mobile sites. Yes! Just 3 steps and you are ready!
Apps-builder.com is an online drag and drop apps builder for mobile applications. It has many exclusive features which is very difficult to find in any other ordinary apps builder present in the web today. Some of those features are so good that it gives the feeling of a hard coded application. It also provides a free online simulator to test your application simultaneously as you proceed through each step. You can also change the simulator type from one device type to another and check if everything looks good in all the devices. It was completely unbelievable for me on the first sight that Apps-builder.com is providing such cool features using just drag and drop interface! Amazing it is!
Apps-builder.com makes your apps ready for multiple platforms/devices on 3 simple steps!
STEP 1 | Create your app!
Yes, the first step itself does most of the important things that is required for your application. I will term it as “general settings” step as there are many drag and drop options present in it. The first thing which you will do is give a name to your application. Think of a name and put it in the first field. After that click on “Select Template” option to select from various graphical templates available like default, black, blackbk, gradient bottom, etc. You can also add a banner and choose from various layout options. You can also select which page to open by default on loading your application and many other similar options.
The drag and drop box includes pages like Facebook, RSS Feed, Twitter, Chat, Shop, etc. You can add all the pages if you wish or only the selective ones. There is also an option to provide favicon to your application which is one of the best things that I liked about this builder. Rarely do any drag and drop builder takes care of such minute details.
STEP 2 | Pricing Step
After you are done with building your application in the first step, it will take you to pricing options. Apps-builder.com has some of the best pricing options to select from. They have 3 payment options like “Basic”, “Advanced” and “Reseller’. All the options allow you to publish your application in 7 versions with unlimited updates. These options also do not include advertising banners from Apps-builder.com which is a plus for sure. They also allow 30 days of free trail option if in case you want to give it a try before buying any plan. After the trail period is over you have to select from one of the above mentioned flexible plans. They have standard methods of accepting payments like Master Card, PayPal, VISA, etc which are very easy to pay.
STEP 3 | Promote Your App
This is yet another power packed step. It has some of the best methods to promote your applications. Redirecting your website’s mobile traffic to your application is one of the features which you will surely find useful. Visitors will automatically land to your application instead of your website on mobile devices.
You can also share your application on various social networking website directly from the dashboard. Let your friends know about your new application and get feedback from them instantaneously.
