AppMakr is a web app that lets you design iOS apps with a WYSIWYG editor. It's free to use, and you can create your very own app in just a few minutes.
AppMakr focuses on creating feed-based apps and starts you off by asking you for your website (or, alternatively, some keywords). From there you'll need to sign up for a free account and you can start creating your app.
The first step involves adding feeds, from text-based feeds to Flickr photos to your Twitter activity.

What's great is that you don't even have to find the feed URLs yourself. Although you can add them manually, AppMakr will conduct a search for you and locate any RSS feeds it can find that are related to your app. This is especially helpful with grabbing feeds from Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and similar services.
The visual style of your app is very customisable. You design the icon, splash screen, app header, tab icons and more. If you don't want to create the graphics yourself, AppMakr provides several options. You can choose from either its database of icons or choose from a number of images it finds via an image search related to your app's content.
The only difficult part of the process comes when you have to actually publish your app to the iTunes App Store or test it on your phone. This is a result of Apple's strict security guidelines, but AppMakr does a good job of walking you through the process with clear and easy instructions that are both written and on video. If you've ever wanted to create your own iOS app but don't really have the programming chops, AppMakr is a fun and easy way to do it.
AppMakr is free to use, but it does require that you have an iOS developer account if you actually want to test your app on an iOS device or publish to the iTunes App Store. A developer account will cost you $119/year, but that's a pretty good deal if you're looking to create an easy to use, feed-based application.
