How To Create Your Own iPhone App Without Writing a Single Line of Code


The number of applications available for the iPhone is approaching 100,000. In a very short time, iPhone apps have become what web sites were a decade ago…a potential goldmine for those who get in early.

Of course the question is, how exactly do you develop an iPhone app for your market? Well, a number of new web sites are answering that question for you. In fact, they will develop custom iPhone apps for you. And they make it dead-simple.

Most of these sites are template driven. You go to the site and follow the step by step templates to create the specifications of your app. Then real developers go to work building your app and submit it to Apple for approval. Once approved, your app will appear in the app store and will be available to millions of iPhone users.

The cost of these services vary, from a single yearly fee to month-to-month fees. But they are all affordable…none of them are near the cost you’d normally pay a professional programmer for application development (i.e. $2,000 and up).

So where can you find these affordable iPhone app development sites? I’ve listed the links to the most popular sites below:

app breeder
My App Builder
eBook App Maker

You’re welcome.


  • I am not a programmer, but I so want to learn how to write apps for the iPhone because I think I have some unique and different ideas. I’m following this story very closely and I already have most of the tools needed.

  • Dave, amazing post. Thanks. I keep thinking SOMEBODY is going to come up with a shortcut for this stuff. Great to see some of them start to surface. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

    Best, TW

  • Dave,

    This is awesome! Thanks so much for putting this together. I really like the ebook app one, that should really help some of my clients. Thanks.

  • Does anyone know how much you get paid by Apple if someone buys your app?

    The creation process seems straight forward, but there doesn’t seem to be any mention of payments from Apple, only payments to the developer.
