How to make an iPhone app for websites and blogs
How would you like to offer an iPhone application for your website or blog? Check out AppMakr if you do. It allows you to make an iPhone app for your website or blog without any programming skills in a few minutes. The cost to create an app is as little as a one-time $199 fee.
The process is that you go to AppMakr.com, provide some graphics and RSS-feed information, and then the site builds your app and submits it to the iTunes App Store. You can monetize your app with ads and sponsorships or by charging for it via iTunes. This is what you what you need to get started:
- RSS or Atom feed. (If you have multiple feeds for your website, you can also add them to your app.)
- 320 x 480 pixel splash screen
- 320 x 46 pixel header
- 512 x 512 pixel icon for itunes
Here are examples of apps built from Alltop topics. All of these are free apps that people can use to stay on top of popular topics.
In other words, I can now offer custom iPhone apps for each of the 800 Alltop topics. How cool is that? And anyone can build a custom iPhone app for their personalized MyAlltop page too. The Atlantic, U. S. Army, PRWed, Inc, and Seth Godin are also using it to provide iPhone apps for their sites.
If you’d like to try the service, go to AppMakr.com and use coupon code “GUYK” to pay $49 instead of $199. This offer expires on January 18, 2010.
