AppMakrs Mobile App Of The Week for October 20th - 26th Goes to World Food Programme(October 24, 2013)
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
AppMakr, a leading DIY mobile app builder, today announced that World Food Programme is the companys App Of The Week for October 20th - 26th.
Each week, AppMakr features one app from the thousands published using our app building tool, called The Machine. This app was selected because it demonstrates the quality of content, design and relevancy that mobile apps can bring to groups trying to make a difference in their community.
With more than 1 Billion smartphones now active in the world, 84% of those users are spending at least 1 hr each day on their smartphones, the base on potential mobile readers for World Food Programme is massive and growing quickly by the day. It was this potential that motivated AppMakr to create an easy drag-and-drop app builder platform that enables anyone to create an app like World Food Programme without the knowledge of coding.
World Food Programme and thousands of small to large businesses, schools, blogs, sports teams and community groups have selected the AppMakr DIY app maker platform to create and launch their mobile app for Android, iPhone and over 5,000 different models of HTML5 compatible smartphones.
In a recent interview about building the World Food Programme app, Isaiah Parker, developer of the app shared with AppMakr about their experience entering the app economy:
AppMakr: What motivates you to go mobile?
Isaiah: Our society has progressively gone mobile in the sense that our society has sped up and everything must be faster, more compact, and easily transported. Signs and billboards are not easily transported and are only visible for a small amount of time as they are passed by, full websites require a stationary position at a computer or laptop and require more time. Our phones are with us nearly 24/7 and provide a fantastic opportunity to meet our faster society by providing information in a more compact form which is easily viewed on the go.
AppMakr: How did you find AppMakr?
Isaiah: I found AppMakr through an internet search. It was an assignment in my software development class, every student was assigned to create an app for a non-profit organization, the organization i chose was the world food programme.
AppMakr: What impact do you think it would have on your community with this mobile app youve built?
Isaiah: Members of the community can open this mobile app and see the world food programme in a compact form that easily fits into their busy fast paced lives and users can donate to the program quickly and easily.
