Kinetise is a browser-based tool for creating apps. Using Kinetise, you can build fully-working applications for mobile phones, test them live, and then deploy that app to the web's leading app stores - iTunes, Google Play, Windows Phone Store and Blackberry World.
Kinetise uses a unique drag-and-drop interface, so all you have to do is pull elements from the toolbar onto the app screen. These elements are called Widgets, and each widget gives you a wide range of customisation so that you can build your app exactly the way you want to.
Once you're happy with your design, you click the "Publish" button and Kinetise does the rest. The system will automatically compile native versions for each mobile platform (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry and Java), and then send teach version to the appropriate app store
As a developer, you can use the Kinetise tool for free. You can prototype for free. You can show your working app to your friends in web preview for free. You can even install 24h test versions of your app on Android and iOS devices, for free.
