Native apps for Android and iPhone are developed separately, which means you’ll need to develop twice (once for Android and once for iPhone). Let’s dive into developing an Android app, since there are over 2.3 billion Android users worldwide. First, in order to create an Android app, you’ll need to decide whether or not you want to develop in-house using an Android app builder platform or Android app development software. You may choose to use an Android app maker software offline as well. Regardless, if you choose to develop in-house, you’ll need to be familiar with APKs and have access to an Android app creator APK.
How to Create a Mobile App
There are many different options to choose from if you decide to build an app in-house, including software options like drag and drop app builders (like Lumavate), which enable the app builder to build apps without any development. These are becoming a more popular option for app building software, since they allow for faster builds, and thus faster results. Many people ask what the best app builder or best drag and drop app builder is, but the answer to that question comes down to what the organization needs out of their mobile app builder. For example, if your organization is looking to build a CMS app, then it will likely need a CMS app builder. It entirely depends on what the goal of the app is! So maybe think twice when browsing the results of your Google search for Best App Builder 2018, or Best App Builder 2019–because app builders are not one-size-fits-all!
App Development for Beginners
While app development typically requires a very specific skillset, Lumavate believes that app development should be far more accessible within an organization. That’s why we created app development software for beginners, or those who don’t have any coding experience. The Lumavate platform is an interactive app builder that enables anybody in your organization to build, test, and publish mobile apps from start to finish. Our no-code platform is built specifically for marketers, so you can finally build apps as quickly as you can dream them up. For our app builder pricing, you can see our pricing page.
What is Your Pricing Structure?
For our full pricing structure, you can see our pricing page. But since you’re here, here’s a quick roundup: We offer pricing packages for every organization’s mobile app needs, whether you need to build one app or one hundred. We are a one time fee app builder with opportunities for multiple year contracts. While we are not a free mobile app builder and we do not offer an app creator software free download, we do offer free trials of our platform, which you can request here.
Can We White Label Lumavate?
Yes! While we are not a free white label app builder, all mobile apps built with the Lumavate platform can be completely customized and branded based on your organization and needs.
How Do You Compare to Appy Pie or Mobile Roadie?
Appy Pie and Mobile Roadie are also no-code mobile app development platforms, however they deliver native apps, not Progressive Web Apps. Every app built with Lumavate is delivered as a PWA, which means the user can access it without an app store download (which means higher adoption and engagement for you!).
