Andromo offers easier route to Android app development?
We have been covering how to write Android apps – see Build your own Android app – and this involves hand-cranked Java running in Eclipse. Well, maybe this is the hard way. An easier way is promised by Andromo, writes Mayank Sharma on TechRadar.
What if you could write an app simply by navigating through a bunch of menus, without installing any piece of software and, more importantly, without writing a single line of code? Thanks to Andromo, it isn’t a question of what if’ but what is.
Andromo’s app-creation process is totally idiot-proof. If you have a mouse, a web browser and an imagination, the world’s your oyster. Anyone, including someone who doesn’t even have a whiff of programming knowledge, can whip up an Android app in a matter of minutes. Best of all, it costs nothing.
The program runs inside a web browser, and lets you specify themes, create icons, add activities and generally customise the app.
What’s the business model for the free tool? Andromo apps display “small non-intrusive strips of ads” into the applications, buit it does share back 50 per cent of any generated revenue.
