If you’re looking to make an app for your business, it’s probably because you know that you’re missing out without one. But if you know absolutely nothing about the behind-the-scenes of app-making, the idea of making one yourself probably isn’t too appealing.
Before you consider parting with a substantial sum of money for a professional app builder, there is one other option—creating an app without coding.
Making your own app doesn’t have to be scary. There are platforms out there that can help you produce an app without having to write a single line of code. You can produce the same high-class results by simply using a template format and a drag-and-drop tool.
How to create an app without coding – step-by-step
1. Find an app building service
Your first job is to scour the internet for app building services that look perfect for you. It might help to look for services that provide specific templates that are ideal for your business. For example, if you’re a radio station, look for services that can help you to build apps for radio stations. Your aim is to make the actual building process as simple as possible, and you’ll find that this is easy to do when a building tool is tailored towards your business.
2. Choose a template
When you’ve decided on your app building service, it’s time to get stuck into the job at hand. Your first task will be to choose from one of the template options the service provides for your business. These templates should come pre-loaded with all the features and tabs you’ll need to give your customers the simplest and most enjoyable experience on your app.
3. Add your branding
To make your app personal to you, once you’ve chosen your app’s template, the next stage is to add your own branding. You’ll have the option to choose your own colour schemes, images, logos and other theming, to match your app exactly to your website. The best app building services will save you the time and hassle of uploading this content yourself by simply transferring your business info, logo, colour schemes and other data directly from your website.
4. Customise your layout
If something about your template is bothering you, you’ll be able to customise it to suit your preferences. You’ll have the choice of getting rid of anything that’s unnecessary and making space for additional features and tabs that will help you to improve your customer’s navigation through your app.
5. Make it live
Once you’re 100% happy with your app, there’s nothing left to do other than make it live. This usually involves communicating with your app building service and waiting for them to finalise the process for you.
The entire app building process from start to finish can take a matter of minutes, and it’s genuinely a fun experience. If the thought of coding scares you, making an app the ‘cheat’s’ way will have you feeling smug and satisfied in no time.
