AppMakr.com is a do-it-yourself platform to create content-based native mobile apps for iPhone & Android, as well as HTML5 Mobile Websites. The process requires no coding knowledge and builds apps with a WYSIWYG editor. It is free to use the site.
After the company was initially acquired by ShareThis, it was announced on May 24, 2013, that AppMakr would be deprecating the AppMakr service and taking the site offline. However, the service was then acquired by competitor Infinite Monkeys, who have merged the platform with their existing mobile app builder. The combined entity now claims to be the largest DIY mobile app publisher in the world.
AppMakr's platform uses RSS and API integrations to power the content in a creator's app. This content may include text, images, podcasts, audio, and video. Creators can also add location-aware GeoRSS and Media RSS feeds. Additionally, the platform allows in-app HTML5 and CSS3, which serves locally from the mobile device and can access its camera, accelerometer, and other built-in features.
Other platform features include push notifications, native photo galleries, shared calendars, live chat rooms and mobile ad network integration. The AppMakr platform partners with a few advertising networks so that creators can monetize their apps.
Within the editor, creators can customize the look of their apps by designing their icons, splash screens, headers, and tab icons. If creators do not want to design graphics themselves, the platform presents a database of icons to choose from and culls images from related web searches..
