Making Android applications is something that interests a lot of people and Google knows it. That’s why he has launched App Maker, a quick and easy way to create your own apps for free.
Google has as a current pillar Android, applications, smartphones. The company has to take care of that and if it has to encourage the creation of applications, it will do so.
Yesterday we echoed a new program of no less than 10,000 grants from the company to the European Union with the aim of training professional app developers.
- Today, Google’s proposal focuses on the simplest apps.
- App Maker, or how to make an application quickly
- Until now, if we wanted to make an Android application we could use the complex tools of developers that Google and other companies have created, such as Android Studio, or choose one of those services that allow us to create a very basic application without knowing how to program.
- Now we have a new option that mixes a bit of both idea.
- You do not need to know how to program to make Android applications with App Maker.
- Google has launched App Maker, a service that allows us to create apps through a very simple interface that focuses on the creation of useful tools for small businesses.
- App Maker has a drag-and-drop interface that we will modify in a web browser and that has the option to enhance with other Google tools such as Google Maps, contacts of our Android app or groups.
Also, if a service has an API, we can use it to perform new functions within our project.
A new G Suite service:
- App Maker is integrated into G Suite, the Google business service that includes other tools such as Gmail or Google Drive.
- The intention of Google is that companies that use their services and can also create simple applications that for example can help manage orders or perhaps the inventory of the company.
- Although the tool has high potential in what develops, the main idea of Google is that small business that wants a simple solution for a specific application do not have to resort to the services of a developer, with the cost savings that implies.
- App Maker is currently available on the G Suite Business website.
In addition, the search engine has introduced some new applications and services in its “Recommendations for G Suite” section, with the guarantee of knowing that this app has been tested with the others of G Suite and that there are no problems.
The chosen ones have been Virtru, LumApps, DocuSign, Freshdesk, Zoho Invoice, Xero and Asana.
