Hundreds of thousands of people create apps to market their brands, to make money and also to establish their name in the world of smartphones and tablets. If you are thinking about getting into the trend of app development even though you don’t have any programming skills, you should find out about the possibilities of developing apps without code. Developing a mobile application is not as difficult as you might think. Below is what you need to do to develop apps without using code.
5 Best Ways To Develop Apps Without Using Code
1. Mobile Roadie
“Mobile Roadie” is an excellent application development platform that allows anyone to create and manage their own Android or iOS application. It supports all types of media, with automatic integration of RSS feeds, Google or Twitter news keywords, and an automatically updated fan feed that allows you to chat in real-time.
You’ll also have access to the free Mobile Roadie Connect application, which gives you a live preview of the application you’re developing, just as users would on their mobile phones. The application even guides you through the app submission process by checking the quality and usefulness of your application.
You can push content directly into your application and drag content from the application to your own website or blog. The API (Application Program Interface) is language-skeptical, so you can receive content in a variety of formats, including CSV, JSON, HTML, PHP and XML. You can easily introduce a custom look and feel for your application and implement it on all platforms, and once your application is launched, you can take advantage of the many marketing options.
Pricing: The Core Plan costs $149 and the PRO Plan costs $799.
Native is one of the most popular mobile application development platforms, which has a very simple UI. You can start creating a mobile application by selecting a template for your application. After selecting the template, you will see a screen with two options: design and features. You can change the layout, logo, background image, and font by clicking the Design tab. You will find a number of different streams that you can add to your application by clicking on the Features tab. Native has streams like Twitter, Facebook, PDF viewer, and so on.
When you are finished creating your application, you can see a live preview of your application on the right side of the desktop. Click the “Finish The App” button when you are finished. Nativ publishes your application under its own developer account by default, but you can also submit it under your own account. With a free basic account you can use all the basic features of the platform, while some advanced features are only available for paid accounts.
The app development platform, which was launched in Israel in 2010, is said to support more than one million applications around the world, making it a giant in the field of app development. It offers a wide range of development materials such as appointment integration, loyalty card functionality, user reviews, events and e-commerce. Most of the examples in their App Gallery are bands, restaurants and other types of event organizations. I found seven types of templates that you can integrate into six navigation modes. Icons, backgrounds and colors can be modified with your own artwork.
Pricing: COMO has a variety of plans like Monthly (57$/month), Yearly ($49/month) and 2 Years ($41/month).
4. Appy Pie
Appy Pie is a cloud-based DIY application development platform that allows users without programming skills to create apps for iOS, Windows, and Android and publish them to iTunes or Google Play. There’s no need to download or install anything – simply drag and drop to develop your own mobile application online. When you’re done, you get an HTML5-based hybrid application that supports all platforms, even Blackberry. All changes are made in real-time, along with live analysis, push notifications, GPS location tracking, and ad monetization. You can integrate websites, blogs, social media feeds, radio, mp3, and more.
The scheduler is especially useful for professionals such as doctors, spas or salons with contact features such as QR codes, including one-touch call. The code page allows you to embed iframes and custom codes.
Pricing: Free Basic Plan & Platinum (33USD/month)
The name, AppMachine, seems to have a deeper meaning. This tool automates as many boring tasks as possible. Just tell them the URL of your website and they will import all the data useful for your mobile application. Facebook, RSS, Twitter and even pictures can be imported if you wish. Very unique and quite useful!
The editor of this app development tool is visually quite impressive, but also not excessive. I personally like its idea of using Lego bricks. It’s one of the best online application development tools I’ve ever seen, and even though not all of the interface was visible from the beginning, I think they have the prospect of being among the top contenders in this field.
Pricing: Basic ($19/app/month), Plus ($49/app/month) and Pro ($69/app/month)
