The best iBuildApp app’s are created by folks that have a basic understanding of technology and the internet. But, no special knowledge is required and you don’t have to be a programmer to build an app using our web-based system. To use iBuildApp, you do not need to be a developer. You can visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app content and behavior.
Q: Do I need to download and install any software?
No, you don’t. The only things you need are your browser and imagination..
Q: What platforms support iBuildapp?
iBuildApp supports iPhone, iPad, and Android OS. That means that apps built on iBuildApp work on iPhones, Android phones, iPod Touch devices and iPads. We plan to expand the platform to Blackberry in the nearest future.
If you are interested in developing an app on other mobile platform (Blackberry, Symbian or Android), please contact us for a custom estimate.
Q: How long does it take to set up and launch?
You can set your app up in under an hour. Then, once you’re satisfied with your app you can submit it to Apple store for approval. This process can take about 3-6 weeks (unfortunately it’s up to Apple:). Once Apple approves your app, we’ll let you know and you can release your app whenever you want.
