Developing Apps for the iOS devices is very lucrative. Despite the developer support Apple provides, it still takes a knowledge of writing code to fully prepare an app for launch. Google has been working on a drag and drop app builder for primitive apps for Android but Apple’s developer program is still pretty hard for non-programers to use.
A more professional easy app building solution is to be found at http://www.myappress.com/ Taking the drag and drop method into the process, the Mac style solution to building apps is now available as a web app. Below are elements from a press release App Press sent us:
