The problem though is that building a usable app costs money, lots of money. Not to mention a great deal of technical know-how.
Like I’ve told you before though, as web-based tools increase, so does your ability to create a quality product for less.
Introducing, Andromo. This web-based platform promises that you don’t have to be a code jockey to build a great Android app.
For me, sign up was a cinch (oops, did you read the EULA, you subject yourself to the jurisdiction of the courts in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – do I have to be a barrister or solicitor to prosecute my case?).
After signing up, you can edit your profile or create a new project. I opted to get testing.
When you’re ready, you can begin editing your project. There are a number of features you can select and design.
Andromo appears to pay its bills by allowing you to display their advertising content. Apparently, you can opt out of this, which is probably a wise idea, by paying $99 (Canadian? That’s like $200 U.S.!).
While I barely scratched the surface with this platform, I can tell there’s a lot of robust power, and certainly a good way for lawyers to use Android to market their law firms.
