Company description

The Problem to create an app for free.

1) every app developer was reinventing basic building blocks. There was an obvious need for an app platform for mobile apps that has the basic building blocks (pre-built, drag and drop)

2) Building a mobile application is expensive. The cost of a feature rich app for iPhone/Android typically runs between $25K and $100K, and the development may take a few months

Solution to make an app for free.

iBuildApp is a very easy to use mobile app maker, hosting and management platform. The app maker service allows businesses to create and publish iPhone and Android app in a matter of minutes.  The web interface is solution-based with widgets for location/contact us, coupons, video, audio, pictures, RSS, Twitter/Facebook etc. The design and widgets marketplace offers graphic designers and developers a place to sell mobile templates and custom modules for businesses and individuals to drag ‘n’ drop right into their app. The widgets are built with iBuildApp specifications and can be installed in any app with one-click of the mouse.

The new Plug Ins Marketplace is expected to have small businesses to engage a new wave of app developers that can sell software through the new marketplace, expanding mobile app market coverage.

We plan to split the revenue from the marketplace with developers, with 20 percent for iBuildApp and 80 percent for the plug ins creator. For traditional technology companies this might sound like a bad deal, but for smaller developers we are hoping to offer a new way to build, distribute and market the mobile apps.

The marketplace is expected to work in a similar fashion to the App store used on the iPhone, with some plug ins available as a free download. It is unclear what the median price point will be for paid plug ins.

To start, iBuildApp will make its own plug ins available through the marketplace, including eCommerce, Coupons, Advertising, Pictures, Video and GPS. This software will cost between $10 and $100.

Based on Google’s success with Android apps, Chrome adoption rates and the overall market trend towards the cloud, the iBuildApp Marketplace is poised to be the next major mobile app distribution store.
