    Create a free app

    Been asked to look at creating an android/iphone app for the school, details, contacts, with facility to push notifications to it for school closues etc We could get one written for us but are there any free resources/websites that could help me do it myself. Just looked at 'conduit' which says free but only for 5 users.

    You could look at or modify the source code of the Google I/O Android app.

    Roman Nurik's Google+ profile is also a good source of information for designing Android apps (along with his podcast called Android Design in Action).

    https://plus.google.com/+RomanNurik/posts

    Whatever you make, please don't create a fugly Gingerbread-style app. Follow Google's design guidelines...

    For inspiration, Android Niceties and Android UI/UX are good websites.

    We've got 2 iPhone apps and a Windows Phone app (made by me ). The WP app is native, but the iPhone apps were built using Titanium which was good to start off with as the developer (a good friend) is more familiar with coding for the web, but it's proven to be tricky to keep up to date with the OS and some features just don't work the same as native code. When there's an OS update, Titanium has to update too so the code can be translated ... this can take a while

    The following might be useful? I found it on /r/android.

    A step-by-step guide about how to get started and involved in Android Development from no programming experience
