Mobile apps are becoming increasingly essential for businesses that want to reach on-the-go customers, but many small businesses don’t have the resources to hire app developers, and creating their own apps that actually work and appeal to consumers may seem a bit overwhelming.
MobileIgniter is a new software-as-a-service provider that gives companies and individuals the ability to build their own high-quality mobile apps using a simple user interface and then publish them to the App Store or Google Play.
The apps can be simple for users and easily built, or intricate and well-designed, depending on how much time and energy your company wants to put into building an app.
There are other do-it-yourself app builders available, even some that can also pull content from other sites automatically, but MobileIgniter offers a number of different options that may be beneficial for small businesses. Users can create modules that make up their app by extracting information from their website, Twitter feed, and other social sites.
In addition to its app-building features, MobileIgniter offers statistics and analytics about the customers that use the app, so that businesses can gain insights into their users. MobileIgniter offers a 7-day free trial for those wanting to test out the service. After that, the company has a few different plans starting at $99 per month.
The MobileIgniter team also offers support and consulting for companies that want help with anything from graphics to development.
MobileIgniter was created by Dominic DiMarco and Tim Nott and is part of the Gener8tor  accelerator program, which is holding its Demo Day on August 23.
