Need to Make an App? There's an App for That!


Many of us do not have computer programming or software engineering degrees nor the time to learn various programming languages. For those of you that are interested, here are some programs that make the app building process much simpler.

Chrome/Chromebooks


Chrome App Builder

Chrome App Builder is a utility that allows you to easily create Chrome Packaged Apps without needing to type any code. With the Chrome App Builder, you simply define a few settings such as navigation controls and a home button, type in the app URL and finally choose whether you want it to be enabled for use in Kiosk Mode. Once the app is exported, you can test it out locally or upload it to the Chrome Web Store.

Android/iOS/Windows Apps


Buzztouch - I have used this in the past, but it used to be free for limited features.
Appypie - Also can build apps for other platforms.
Microsoft App Studio (Beta) - Create Windows 10 apps.
