Appy Pie is a cloud-based, visual, drag and drop mobile app builder that enables users who have no programming skills or experience to build HTML5 hybrid apps that run on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry devices; publish their apps in Appy Pie Marketplace, Apple App Store, Google Play, and iTunes. There’s nothing to install or download — just drag and drop pages to create your own mobile app online. Once it’s complete, you receive an HTML5-based hybrid app that works with all platforms, including Blackberry. All revisions are in real time, with the ability to send push notifications, monetize with ads, see live analytics, and track location with GPS. You can also integrate social media feeds, blogs, websites, audio, radio and more.
With Appy Pie AppMaker, building and deploying a mobile app use a three-step process:
- Select a category. Categories include Business, Information, Restaurant, Photography, Health, Worship, Law Firm, and Government Agency, to name a few. Appy Pie provides a category-specific app builder; for example, the Real Estate App Builder enables you to create an app that includes a location-based real estate listing directory; property listings with images, videos, and one-touch calling; an About Us page; a Contact page; GPS directions to a selected property; a mortgage calculator; and more.
- Build your app.The selected App Builder walks you through the process of choosing a theme; adding, deleting, and customizing the pages and other features that compose your app; and customizing the theme.
- Publish and promote your app.When you choose to save and publish your app, you must log on to Appy Pie to have your app published in Appy Pie Market Place for no additional fee or to publish it in another app marketplace, such as Apple App Store, Google Play, or iTunes.
