Today, Sweb Apps (http://www.swebapps.com) launched to give anyone the tools to build a great-looking, highly functional mobile application for their business, in as little as five minutes. By using Sweb Apps, users can create dynamic mobile applications that engage their customer base wherever they are, and encourage repeat, regular use by easily allowing for the creation of new content. Sweb Apps will be launching with a suite of features including an AppTracker™ to give users the ability to track their application’s daily performance, and a Content Management System that enables content creation and update real time.
“The iPhone and its many varied applications have given businesses the opportunity to reach existing and new customers on the go, but many lack the resources, knowledge, or budget to create mobile apps in-house,” said Magaly Chocano, CEO and founder of Sweb Apps. “To succeed in today’s highly competitive market, small businesses have to incorporate mobile and social media applications into their business plan. Sweb Apps gives them that opportunity to easily and inexpensively reach clients where they increasingly are, on their mobile device.”
With Sweb Apps branded iPhone applications, restaurants can upload menu items, specials or take reservations; retailers can promote sales, locations, and inventory; and nonprofits can post events, information on how to get involved, and take donations — all with customized buttons and consistent company branding throughout the application.
Does your kid’s lemonade stand have its own iPhone app yet? It might soon.
To the 70,000 apps already available, Apple’s App Store is adding thousands every week. Until now, though, building a professional-looking app had been complex and costly — many app developers charge upwards of $125 per hour or $5,000 a week, and apps created from scratch often take at least several weeks to develop, at a total cost of $10,000 to $20,000, not including monthly hosting fees.
That’s about to change with this week’s debut of new services from a San Antonio–based start-up called SwebApps and updated tools from California-based Mobile Roadie. The new offerings enable anyone to go online and have an app ready in an hour by personalizing, customizing and adapting sophisticated templates. Just as early Web-page-creation tools ranging from Dreamweaver to GeoCities made it possible for anyone to create their own website, SwebApps and Mobile Roadie aim to democratize the creation of apps.
A company called Sweb Apps has just launched a new service which lets anyone build iPhone apps, even if you don’t have a technical background. The service is aimed primarily at small to medium-sized businesses who don’t have an in-house or on-call engineering team capable of developing mobile applications. Instead, using the Sweb Apps website, business owners can create their own iPhone application themselves in as little as five minutes, says the company.
On the newly launched site at swebapps.com, a big orange button reading “Start Building” is all you need to click to get started creating your own iPhone application. Then, only six steps later, you’ll have a completed iPhone application ready for App Store submission, a process which Sweb Apps will handle for you, too.
