I can't decide which mobile app creator to try out for my first mobile app. I did some quick google searches, but the results are vastly different even with the most minor keyword changes.

example : "make a free app" shows a complete different top 10 list then "mobile app builder" .

So... i'm stuck. Who's big & popular and has all the tools ?

I wanna be able to have the option to add HTML, and also the option to list my app (when it's done) on all the big places (sites) for promotion.

thx guyz

I'm thinking maybe Conduit since they seem to have a smooth layout, and full of options.

I'm not sure though.. I need customization as well, not sure if Conduit allows us to bypass their advertising and use our own.

I need advice ! First time rolling with a mobile app builder and i'm in the dark. Seems like there's a lot of good ones out there.

I've never heard of Tiggzi before until now, nice creation options on their end too.

Just found this thread. Have you looked at phonegap? If you use Dreamweaver, there is a plugin for it that helps create apps. Also, you can create apps for multiple platforms.

It's free too.

I like ibuildapp.com, they do have a monthly fee if you want ad-free apps though.

IF you are thinking iPhone apps, there are two ways to go: Monthly fees or lump sum payment. That is because there are fees to list your app in the App Store. Apple's Dev. Kit is a free download and you can build all the apps you want but to get them listed there are fees. Several businesses act as middlemen making apps easier to create, handling certification and placement for a fee.
The uBuildApp is for creating your own App without monthly fees for a one time fee. For a higher one time fee they will build it for you. If you prefer a managed solution with a monthly fee structure there is BizApps. There are many others, these two have been out there quite a while.

There are several mobile app development software for you to try. However, which one will be suitable for you is difficult to answer. As you know, there are different platforms on which apps are created, like Android, Blackberry, Windows, iOS.

The primary choice of an appropriate mobile app developing tool will mainly depend on the type of platform you wish to target. For example, AppMakr is mainly meant for creating apps for iPhone. On the other hand, Genwi can be used to create mobile apps for both Android and Apple products.

The list is extensive and choosing the right one will take time. Hope my suggestions will help you.

Depends on your level experience. If you're a programmer, phonegap is the way to go. Phonegap will allow you to publish to iPhone, droid and a few others with very little change in your code. And if you are good with HTML5, Jquery and Ajax, you can create some really awesome stuff and then compile to an app for submission.

No monthly fees, and you can make your app do exactly what you want it to do.

If you're not a programmer, then those canned services are good for basic apps however you will not be able to develop apps that have much depth to them other than the options those services have.

Pick your poison.
