Course Description

There are literally hundreds of tools, technologies and frameworks out there for building apps for mobile devices. But which one do you choose? Are you an experienced developer looking to decide which tool to use? What platforms do you want to build for?

Perhaps you are non-technical but really like the thought of creating your own app; either just for your own satisfaction, or to enhance your skills or even possibly generate a second income.

What sort of app do you want to create? What is the best tool for a business app and what is the best tool for gaming app?

Maybe you don't want to get involved at all. You might want to outsource development to a third party. What should you be wary of? What about buying a finished app?

Lots of questions that hopefully this free course can guide you through.
