iBuildApp has developed an online platform for building native mobile application and is serving customers and generating revenue. iBuildApp allows individuals, publishers and corporations to create, customize and manage their own Phone/iPad/Android application via online application creation engine and deliver it via its SaaS solution. Our platform is a Do It Yourself automated engine for building mobile applications without requiring any programming skills.


a) Building a mobile application is expensive. The cost of a feature reach app for iPhone/Android/Blackberry typically goes between $25,000 and $120,000, and the development may take a few months. b) Updating application content requires new submission to apple app store which may take up to 2 weeks. c) Another problem that exists in the wireless industry is the need to create a separate application for each phone platform, as the phone OS market is very fragmented


iBuildApp is an automation tool for mobile app creation on multiple platforms. The mobile applications can be created in minutes instead of months, and at a cost that is free or just a few hundred dollars, allows companies to expand mobile quickly across multiple mobile devices and update app content in real-time. We are expanding our platform to online Catalogs, Newspapers, Magazines and eBooks Self-publishing on iPad. Developers can code their application on iBuildApp using HTML and JavaScript and utilize those languages to take advantage of native, device-specific functionality allowing for the app to access the device camera, address book, compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and many others that would otherwise require complex development. What is your Model?

We use two business models: Fremium -you can build basic applications free of charge with a variety of premium upgrades available. The instant content update, where content is hosted in iBuildApp SaaS platform, allows asking for ongoing subscription payments. Crowdsourcing iBuildApp is mobile app building platform that allows anyone to easily create and manage mobile apps. Any member can submit a product idea, and the community can help shape, refine and complete the product. The benefit is faster time to development with what could be a more commercially viable product. Developer APIs: iBuildApp is building developer APIs that enable rapid integration with 3rd party services and app customizations. What’s the story of our company?
