hello everyone,
Get Help

The problem with trying to figure out how to build an iPhone app is that it takes a long time to actually go out and learn how to program the code. If you are like a lot of people out there, you actually have zero experience with programming. It is still possible to make iPhone apps without knowing how to write the code.

This may appear to be a huge road block but it really isn't. Creating your own iPhone application is attainable without learning to program. How? The answer is very obvious. You find someone that is willing to write the code for you. This can be done for a small fee, depending on how detailed your app is.

This means that all you need to do is come up with an idea for an app. The rest of the process can be taken care of for you by someone else. You will just act as a project manager to ensure that what you envisioned gets created.

How to Start?

The important thing is to not feel overwhelmed. There are many resources available on the internet today that will help on your quest.

To start with you need to come up with an idea and make sure that you can clearly explain you idea to someone else. You might need to write out descriptions or draw sketches on paper or in Photoshop in order to clearly communicate your thoughts.

The next thing that you need to do is find someone to help you. Since you are not an expert at making iPhone applications, you will have to be to hire someone. At first this may seem like a daunting task. The biggest hurdle to overcome is finding the right person. If you don't already know someone that can help you out, then the you will need to find a freelance designer - this is also known as outsourcing.

A few good places to find iPhone app developers is on sites like eLance or Craigslist.

Then What?

Making an iPhone app is only the first step in the process. There are other steps that need to be completed as well. You might need to find a user interface (or UI) designer, however, this isn't always necessary. You can also get get UI elements designed if creating graphics isn't something that you think you will be able to do on your own. Sometimes the person that helped you write the code for your application can also help you create the UI.

Another step in the process is that you will need to sign up for the Apple Developer program in order to have the application submitted to the iTunes store. You can do this at Apple's developer site. If this is also something that you are unable to do on your own then you can get your developer to help you with this process as well.

Final Thoughts

It is possible for you to know how to build an iPhone app without programming. You just need to do a bit of work and get a bit of help and then you will have no problems achieving your goal.

Here is an other approach.

You know of that 14 year old who produced Bubble Ball that outdid Angry Birds. (His company is called "Ney Games".) He looked into Objective-C but thought the learning curve was too steep. So he looked into something called Game Salad, but that didn't please him, so he moved on to Corona tools from Ansca Mobile. He said that "Corona was easy to use, he said, and also let him write once and publish for both Apple and Android devices."

I was considering tearing a page from his book and as I looked around, I also came across GameRanger. But I felt that I really wanted to make this a career so I took the hard route and ran with the idea of learning Objective-C, come what may. So here I am digging away with the rest of you.

The best way to build an iPhone app without any technical knowledge is through AppIncubator. It's a mobile app that allows you to submit ideas for apps.

You need to download the app, then submit your idea. If you want to get more detailed, you can use the storyboard tool on the website to describe exactly how you want the app to look and function.

If the people at MEDL Mobile like your idea, they'll develop and market it, and share a portion of the profits with you.

Granted, this isn't a great way to create your business's main app -- but if you have a unique idea for an app and want to see it come to fruition with little effort on your part, this is the way to go. And the best part is, it is totally free.
