You have a great idea for an app. You want to make an interactive book? A tip-a-day app? Maybe turn your content into a game? (Gamification is so hot these days!)
But you have a problem—no budget to get it made. Or maybe you got a quote from a developer that was 10 times more than you could afford. That’s the position I found myself in about a year ago.
Because I am known online as Grammar Girl and I love word games, it was a no-brainer for me to make a game app based on matching words with parts of speech, but it became clear that unless I did it myself, it wasn’t going to happen. I despaired. Then I discovered a tool called GameSalad, and my dreams were within reach. Grammar Pop could exist.
Gone are the days when you need to know Objective C to make an app. Today, you don’t even need to know what Objective C is; you just need to have patience and be willing to tinker, because now there are companies that create the underlying app code for you.
