We have been covering the number of ways by which you can create your own mobile applications. We have reviewed web-based platforms which help you create your own mobile app. These websites cater to the needs of non-technical people who wish to reach out to a greater customer base with their very own apps created for the smartphones and for the HTML5 websites.

Each one of these platforms have their own pros and cons. But the one thing that’s common to all of these is that, they all are web based. You need to login through a browser, and then explore the functionalities offered.

Now, how would you feel if there’s an app dedicated for the very same purpose? Yes, there is an app that helps you create your own, using your smartphone! This means, now the users have the capability to create an app, on-the-go!

No programming skills required, no technical knowledge expected. Download Apper, and start building a mobile application for your clients, your business, or for promoting your content. IGenApps focuses on making your app available to a larger user base, by giving a unique link and a QR code, which can be used for downloading the app, making it free from OS platforms. However, if the user wants to get his app published on the App Store, all they need to do is pay $99.

There is a learning curve involved in using the platform which is aided through tutorials available in youtube. If you are new to the application building environment, it would be a bit confusing at the start. But once you have got the idea about how to go around it, iGenApps would really make your life easy.

Once you are in the app, start with the ~ez_lsquo+ez_rsquo~ on the top right corner of the page. Enter the details of your application, like the Name, Description, and Name of the Creator etc.

Abhirup is our guest blogger on education apps and thought partner. He harbors certain thoroughly misguided self-impressions like he has a refined aesthetic sense (our website’s visuals are NOT inspired by his ideas) or that he has a deep baritone. However, we choose to ignore these as he sometimes comes up with good ideas notwithstanding the fact that they are articulated in confusing managerial jargon; perhaps explained by the fact that he is an MBA from IIM Bangalore.
