3 Awesome Apps for Teachers to Create their Own Apps

I have been doing a lot of apps review here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but I have never posted about the tools you as teachers and educators can use to create your own apps. Just lower your eyebrows down, you can do it without any coding knowledge. Of course Android and Apple do provide tech savyy guys with the tools necessary to create their own apps but for us who know nothing about SDK and app development skills, platforms like the ones below will serve the purpose. You can create your app in less than a minute and the process is completely free.

Here are some of the apps I learned from Steven Anderson and which you can use to create your customizable apps. Enjoy



This is a cool web tool that enables users to easily and instantly build a rich content based app. Just paste in the URL of the website you have and then start customizing it app the way you want. You can add images, videos...etc. The free version is ad supported but there is a paid version with no ads.


iBuildApp is the established “do it yourself” platform to make iPhone/Android apps, with no coding required. The self service web platform provides easy way for any organization to create their own mobile (iPhone, iPad, Android, Symbian, Win Mobile, Blackberry) applications and publishing materials.Creating a mobile app with iBuildapp is absolutely free. You can have an app published within minutes.


This is a Google supported platform where you can get to create awesome apps using just drag and drop. It enables you to customize the look and feel of your apps, add buttons, attach objects and many more. It requires a Google account.

  1. I'm a massive fan of teachers making apps for classes. I did this back on 2010 as a means of flipping instruction for senior students. However the power lies in students creating apps using ibuildapp.com for local businesses. Tremendous tools we now have access too.
