Exciting discovery during the weekend (link).

Use in education

It allows teachers to create an app (iOS or android) that incorporate youtube videos, pdfs/docs, quick quizzes. The app creator resides on the web and users just need to add the various contents through the drop down menu. At the end of the day, users download the source code (separately for android and iOS), compile it using Xcode for iOS apps (not sure about Android) and submit it to app store/ad hoc distribution.

Personal Experience

The web interface to create the app is intuitive enough for someone who has some experience using a LMS/CMS to create a course. I have managed to create 1 app source code within half an hour of fiddling around. Unfortunately I don’t have a developer account to test out the app yet because I am still undecided about paying USD$99 for a personal account.
