Is it too difficult for a noob? Maybe there are some nice tools which ease the process?
I did. Internet today is full of material to learn from
Firstly you can learn to program and secondly you can hire a freelancer/find a dev studio.
If you want to learn how to program you need to be in it for the long run, learning to program is a tedious task and takes time and dedication. There's no definite time on "how long it takes to learn to program", everyone learns differently and it takes as long as it takes. If you're wanting to build an app on Android then Java is your language and if iOS is your platform Objective-c or Swift. Simply google 'iOS app tutorials' or 'Android app development tutorials' and you should be on your way to learning to program.
The second option is hiring someone to do the work. Apps aren't cheap though, although you can get someone in a developing country to do the work for a fraction of the price but I wouldn't recommend it for a large project, if possible contract the work to someone who speaks your native language. Having a native speaker makes contact so much easier and really streamlines the process. Developers (iOS) start at around $40USD an hour but if you're looking for someone really experienced in a certain field this number could easily double/triple. If you decide to find a dev studio then you really want deep pockets, but at the same time you need to fully investigate the app studio.
You can find freelancers on website such as freelancer.com. Always be wary and take all measures to verify the person you're dealing with is who they say they are, always break up the payment and set deadlines for features. Make a contract, there's heaps of free templates on the net.
I developed Android apps in college... the most complex being a Painting app and then a Tower Defense game. Might be difficult for a noob, especially if you don't have programming experience or knowledge of graphics. You can teach yourself, but you'd have to be very dedicated to learning it.
Yes, Operation TOKAMAK.
I made this. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=my.app.does.nothing&hl=en
Joke aside, it is really to learn and there is not much to invest. The Internet is full of literature.
I made App for the Dark Web called STARNET. It uses Femtoscale field forces projected by a device that works similar to smartphone holographic projector, but instead of light it projects femtofields that surround your bodies energy field and then compress it to level it can be magnetically induced INTO the internet and sent like data packets to be released through reverse procedure in receptive smart device.....which is all fancyspeak for You CAN Email yourself.
Download it if you DARE!!!
I would really try it out sometime but i'm so lazy to even do it and probably stupid too haha xD
no, but have you ever heard an app named I am rich... hahaha. "the app is the definite proof that you are really rich and can buy just about anything you want!" wtf, lol. And many kind of that are still available on sideload website like apknite
No, but I did supply character artwork that would be rendered in 3D for a fighting game. This was back in late '17. Don't know when it's coming out though. It was a mercenary job and I wasn't really part of the team. Got paid and moved on.
no I have not yer
I am only a user of mobile applications.
I have a couple of times (through hackathons and an attempted group project with friends)-for simplistic apps, it's not that bad but the more complex and realistic your mobile app is (real-life applications, multiple (and differing) functionalities, etc.), the more difficult it can get. If you want to get started, I highly recommend learning the specific language that your preferred platform for your mobile apps commonly runs in (Apple-Swift and Google-Java) and know the functionalities of the app framework (ex. XCode from Apple) that you want to create your app in.
I took a class in yr8 about it. But it wasn't something I pursued afterwards.
i want to
No but, I have failed
I'll stick to Scrach programming
There is everything on the internet but it is very difficult to make an application.
I once tried to build a Minecraft apk mod.
I just tried modding a game
