How To Create An App​?

  1. jQT, formerly JQ Touch
This is a framework which is fast, easy to setup and has good theming abilities. It is HTML tag based, meaning that you start with setting up an HTML file for all your pages. The latter are separate & lt; div> tags within the page. So in fact, you are building a single-page app, but the framework will make the pages swipe left-to-right when rendered on the smartphone or tablet device.

2. JQuery mobile

Query Mobile is similar to jQT since it is HTML tag-based. Once you have tried jQT, it is easy to pick up JQuery Mobile. It is also a very good framework. More recently, after some changes in JQuery Mobile, I think it is less easy to create an app without coding and make dynamic apps with it now than it was previously. It has great theming possibilities. While both jQT and JQuery Mobile take the HTML tag approach, there are other ways to proceed but still use Web technologies.

How To Create An App Without Programming Skills?

Here are two other approaches which have similarities and differences:

3. Sencha Touch 2

Sencha Touch 2 is a more complex framework. Unlike JQ Touch or J Query Mobile, it is heavily based on Javascript programming. That is, even your pages and toolbars are defined through Javascript. The framework then renders this as a mobile Web app for your device. It is a very powerful framework with a good documentation technology. The only caveat I would point out is that the docs are not always up-to-date so that some of the tutorials you can find on the site do not work now. Sencha Touch 2 makes having a single User Interface look at all devices easy, be it on iOS tablets and smartphones, or Android ones. Sencha Touch 2 contains ways of using MVC for separation of concerns between the Storage of Data, the app logic and the UI presentation.

4. Titanium Appcelerator

Titanium Appcelerator is similar to Sencha Touch in the sense that it uses Javascript as its main programming language. It is unique in that it will then render your app as a completely native app for both Android and iOS. Appcelerator also has its own implementation of MVC. Its highest advantage over the others is that the end product has native speed and UI.

Based on all these, if you are just starting out, I recommend jQT and of course, getting how to create an app without coding eBook, which will walk you through the initial steps of setup to the final publishing of your app in a step-by-step, explained manual.
