This is very interesting.  I took a look at their website and can see immediate uses for the capability.    I am assuming the "beta" model will allow trial and error so I definitely will start working with it and let you know.   Thank you Cabe for the interesting post.

I'm curious as to if in-depth testing of the created apps are available through the Kleverbeast software considering its browser-based or whether a separate platform is needed? If so does that mean that if someone wanted to create apps for both Android and Apple platforms they would need two separate software suites?

There are a ton of start-ups focusing on this same space. Will be interesting to see who emerges as leaders.  Also, most offer very basic functionality.

While I like the idea I don't care for subscription services.

For 99 cents I would try it.

Looking at it deeper, some advanced web functionality is not there. Like data handling, interactivity. It looks like an excellent way to sell products though. In the end, isn't that what it is all about?

This is a terrific idea, an app builder for the non-techie. It will be interesting to see whether this fills a real need. The question becomes -- is there a sufficient number of people who have the technical imganation to come up with an app idea but also don't have the tech know-how to execute it? Or, perhaps it will help those who do have the tech expertise but find this tool saves time and money on app development. We'll see.

That's quite cool! I'm not super-techie (I write about tech, but am not so great at using it) but I think even a semi-luddite like me might be able to create an app with this.
