When everything and everybody around you is going mobile, you don't have many options but to follow. However, becoming a mobile app developer overnight is certainly not possible. In such cases you either need to hire help, or to use help that is already available.

If you decide to go the second route, mobile app builders, though certainly far from perfect, are your best friend. Mobile app builders are a relatively new type of software and they aren't abundant in numbers, especially if you want them for a mobile platform that is not that popular. However, if you want a mobile app builder for iPhone, then imSMB Mobile -- a mobile app builder for small businesses -- might be exactly what you need.

Create a Quick App with imSMB Mobile App Builder

Similar to website builders which allow you to create a quick site in less than an hour, mobile app builders allow you to create a quick mobile app with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you expect a high-end mobile site with all the perks you can think of, then a mobile app builder is not your cup of tea. But if you are on a budget and want to deploy an iPhone app in no time at all, this builder will allow you to.

One of the best things about imSMB Mobile is that it is an intuitive drag-and-drop application. You are presented with pre-selected options for items such as App Background, Buttons, etc., (as shown in the screenshot) to choose from. Alternatively, you can upload your own images and other stuff and make your creation more unique.
