The developer of the app, Normal Ortiz, has plenty to say about this offering. It's clear a lot of time and energy was spent on it from the concept, design, purpose, and execution of the app. “At iGenApps we are determined to lead the App revolution by empowering every app builder and enthusiast around the world with our powerful but easy to use tool to create mobile Apps straight from their smartphone device.”

The process used to build apps is so unique that there is actually a patent on it.

"

The Pricing Structure

Now, it should be noted there can be a cost involved with the app in the form of subscriptions and packages. You can begin with the free trial, which lasts for three days. During this time, it is suggested you use the app as much as possible so you get a real handle on it and figure out if it's something you can use in the long-run. The trial package includes an unlimited amount of downloads and visits, unlimited amount of updates and changes, a free splash screen for the background, stats and analytics, and it works on various platforms.

The Nitty Gritty

So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty with the Apper app. It’s all about the user experience of course and whether or not the apps are as easy to create as the developer claims. First off, just as you would hope, the app walks you through the steps in a well-organized fashion. Your first step will be picking your language, as there are a few to choose from. Next, it’s time to give some general information about your app. You can name it, give it an icon that will appear next to it, pick your category, who it is created by, and then give a brief description of your app so others can decide if they want it.

One thing to note, when you pick your name make sure you are happy with it because this is something you can't change in the middle of the process. As soon as the name is registered in the store, that's it. The app comes pre-loaded with all the tools and content you need as you create your own offering, but it should be noted that some of the "modules" will need to be unlocked for an additional price. It’s still very cost-effective considering you’d likely have to hire a company or service to design the app for you otherwise.

With all the positives to point out there are also a few negatives. Users have commented on the fact the instructions could still be a bit more clear. That and they’d like to see stock images that could be available for use. All in all though, it’s a solid and impressive offering.
