Though I still remain iPhone-less, I really like that gadget. Maybe I will go for the 4G when it becomes available. Apart from the long list of advantages, the iPhone has spawned a massive iPhone apps industry. One of the premier iPhone App publishers here in Japan is APPLIYA Studio, a subsidiary of Softbank Corp., the telecommunication company exclusively in charge of iPhone sales in Japan. As of today, APPLIYA Studio more than 230 apps on the Apple Store.
Earlier today, APPLIYA Studio announced an upgraded version of their online iPhone App publication tool, the iPhoneAppBuilder. This web-based system that allows anyone to make an engaging iPhone app utilizing images from their Flickr account or straight from their computer.
Content creators such as illustrators, musicians, writers, photographers, etc. with great content but inadequate programming skills can now build their own iPhone apps without engaging the services of accomplished developers.
For a limited time, all users can create their own app for free. Also, customers that submit an app will be automatically entered into a contest running from February 22, 2010 to March 22,2010. The owner of the top-selling iPhoneAppBuilder app in that time frame will win $1000.
With the iPhoneAppBuilder, you can do the following:
1. Build your app for free (no charges of any kind, no strings attached).
2. Receive royalties on sales from the app store.
3. Avail yourself the possibility for additional revenue through advertising in your app.
4. Build a variety of fun and useful apps including clocks, calendars, image viewers, slide puzzles, and Appliya’s unique “Pictter” app that combines user images with Twitter posts.
You can get started with Appliya Studio AppBuilder and have your own iPhone app built in minutes. Here is the tutorial video:
