The process can work well, and it can save you considerable time while still having a nice, polished app on multiple platforms. There are a few pitfalls with the approach, though. One of the main troubles is developing for iOS first.

I’m sure that there are several other major differences between what is supported between Android and iOS. Once I find more, I’ll let you know.

For most, the underlying technology that makes an app tick is shrouded in mystery. This has been a boon for programming experts and has spurned a very profitable niche for professional programmers who are paid to research, develop, and build these apps. But what if you have an idea for the next big thing – or even the next little thing for that matter? Well, now there is hope for non-programmers. Recently, thanks to a collaboration between Google and MIT, the world of mobile app creation has been opened to everyone with App Inventor!
