Make An iPhone, Android App Without Knowing A Line Of Code | Fast Company

JamPot’s new AppBuilder asks a series of questions and spits out a genuine, though limited-function, app. It could blow the market wide open.

With JamPot’s AppBuilder, you can build a genuine iPhone or Android app in mere minutes for free–according to the company’s own website. The young company, savvy to the ever-shifting smartphone market, says it will soon support Windows Phone 7 too, meaning it’ll address the market that RIM seems to be losing its grip on very fast according to new surveys on smartphone use.
The idea behind AppBuilder, JamPot’s VP of Sales Matthew David explained to Fast Company, is simple. By using its web interface, pretty much anyone, no matter their coding expertise, can create a smartphone app and have it running on their device within minutes. They’re not web apps, not a clever HTML5 app-like experience–they’re genuine native apps, optimized for each platform’s particular foibles. And within a couple of weeks, makers expect AppBuilder to support Windows Phone 7 with all the, as David phrased it, “fantastic” attributes of Metro.
