On the 12th of January I built an iPhone app to bring together my blog posts, twitter feeds and news from Communicate using RSS feeds all in one place.
I didn’t have to program it my self, I used a website called AppMakr that takes care of all of that and publishes it directly to apple using their own developer account. The whole process was extremely simple and inputing the ‘required’ fields took about 30 minutes and 5 days to appear in iTunes As Alexandr would say “Simples”
Normally the cost for developing an iPhone app runs into the £1000’s of pounds depending on the complexity however AppMakr charge $199 or $450 if you want to publish using your own developer account.
You can monitize the app that you build either by using ads that show when the app is being used (Nahhh, not for me ) or you can charge people when they download it — mine’s free
If you want to download it click here or just put ‘Lee Smallwood’ into the search box in the iTunes store — and let me know what you think
The nice people over at AppMakr are promoting some discount offers, these are:
Enter promotional code GUYK to get $150 off! Valid until 18÷1÷09
or if you need a bit more time to think about it then use promo code TWITTER to get $50 off expires 31÷1÷2010.
If you make one make sure to let me know your link so I can download it
