Businesses, community groups, educational groups, philanthropic an app now exists in every category.

“Businesses today need to quickly adapt to the new mobile world, having an app for your business is becoming the next competitive edge just like the need for a website or a Facebook page in years past,” said Jay Shapiro.

AppMakr and its family of companies announced today it has reached 1.5 million mobile apps built on its drag-and-drop platform. AppMakr is now available in 15 languages and is used by small businesses and community groups in more than 100 countries including Brazil, China, Egypt, Turkey, the UK and US. Global interest in mobile apps has rocketed the do it yourself app platform, growing by more than 700 percent in the last year.

“We just wanted to take a moment and thank all of our publishers around the world, because they are proof that anyone can create an app themselves and have it published, with no more writing code, no more graphic designers and no more tech savvy individuals being the only ones able to take advantage of this type of technology,” said Jay Shapiro CEO of AppMakr and its sister company Infinite Monkeys.

ReadWriteWeb estimates there are currently 8.7 million mobile app developers in the world. Based on that estimate, a full 17% percent of app developers worldwide are now using AppMakr to create their mobile apps in preference to hand-coding the application, making it the most popular DIY platform for publishers.

The modular approach allows you to choose which features you want to include in your app, how you want it to look and what you want it to do. You can then either sell your app, give it away for free or include in-app advertising to make some revenue.

“Businesses today need to quickly adapt to the new mobile world, having an app for your business is becoming the next competitive edge just like the need for a website or a Facebook page in years past,” said Jay Shapiro.

We have chosen two publishers that we believe demonstrate the true potential of AppMakr and our sister company Infinite Monkeys:

Chloe Austin Photography: If you are looking to create an app to promote your small business, US photographer Chloe Austin's app is a great example of how to make a great-looking mobile app with customizable elements to suit your needs.

The portfolio app has a widget that clicks through the photographer's full website, her blog and all her social networks.

In addition, customers can view the portfolio in three categories: Weddings, Newborns and Seniors and with the shopping cart tool integrated, you can buy a photo too.

Chloe has added a link to a special promotion on her app that will help draw in sales prospects and the location widget highlights where you can buy her photos.

The icons and background on the Chloe Austin app have been highly customized by her, showing exactly how easy it is to customize your app to make it your own.

Youth Resources: The Youth Resources app is a great example of a local group using mobile technology to offer community support, in this case for the First Nations' Youth in British Columbia, Canada. The group chose to include a range of widgets as gateways to contact information for local and national helplines.

There are currently over 630 recognized First Nations governments spread across Canada, roughly half of which are in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.

With suicide rates more than twice the national average, a lower life expectancy and higher levels of drug abuse and crime, the Youth Resources app aims to help this vulnerable group of people by offering support via the mobile app, where and when their stakeholders need it.

The app itself is split into 12 sections, each offering phone numbers for the First Nations people to use if they need advice. It demonstrates how the AppMakr platform isn't just for businesses looking to increase their profits but can be used for educational and philanthropic purposes as well.

AppMakr and its sister company Infinite Monkeys have three pricing options (free, $1/month, $9/month). AppMakr provides a range of affordable marketing solution to all small businesses, schools, community groups and individuals. By servicing the long-tail of niche interests with free and low-cost apps, AppMakr has become the largest DIY publisher of mobile apps in the world. The platform creates true native iPhone and Android mobile apps, as well as HTML5 mobile websites compatible with thousands of smartphone models.
