Getting Your App Made Even If You’re Not A Programmer

If you have been struggling to learn iPhone and iPad development, or you want to develop an app — but don’t want to do any programming.  You’re not alone.

I found this great article today that goes through how to get that iOS app done.  The article goes into discovering what you as a non-programmer can bring to the table.

From what I’ve seen the key, which is also emphasized  in this article is to have a really awesome prototype.

I’ve even seen an artist develop an excellent prototype, take that to a meetup group for developers and literally have developers begging to work on the app.  That’s the position you want to be in if you’re a not a programmer.   Even if you can’t find a programmer for free being able to show exactly how the app should look and work will drive down your costs.

You can read the article from Mike Berg here:
How to get your game made, even if you’re not a programmer

If you do look for a developer take heed of Mike’s warning at the end:

Don’t: Go to a programmer and say, “Hey, I’ve got this awesome idea for an iPhone app, wanna make it for me and split it 50-50?” They only hear: “You do all the work, I’ll take half the money.”

The other day I mentioned a nice tool for creating interactive app prototypes .

Collinsadrian posted a comment about another great tool which allows you to create interactive app prototypes quickly in Keynote or Powerpoint.  It’s very easy and intuitive, and definitely a great help if you’re looking to have something to show as quickly as possible.

Check out this video demo of a Google Wave app prototype created with it:

The tool is known as MockApp and if you want to get a demo done fast then it looks good. Free too, it’s provided as “tweetware” meaning you just have to tweet about it.

Please post any comments below, thanks.

Create iPhone Interfaces Easily With Keynote (Tutorial Video)

I found an interesting tutorial today on how to create iPhone interfaces easily with Keynote.  This is something I hadn’t really considered doing.

Basically what the author does is draw out interface elements in keynote, and then copy/paste them into a graphics utility called Acorn although any image editor should work that allows you to copy/paste elements.

Check out the tutorial video here:
