    Use buzztouch but even though they make it really simple there's still a lot involved.

    LOL app building is way too complicated to be free and beginner-friendly. You'll need to upskill significantly if you want to spend less.

    To develop an android app you will have to download android studio or ADT (android development Tools) software. When you have that installed then check out beginners video tutorial on android development on youtube.
    It wont be long you develop your first app. All the best

    I would say it depends what you're using it for.

    If you're looking to make a game, I'd look at Unity, as it is a free editor (until you make so much money from it), and it'll make the APK's etc for you. It'll mean you'll need to look into C# programming, but it's really easy to get on with, and there's a lot of references and tutorials out there.

    If you're looking for something that'll be essentially like a website, say the eBay app etc, you may want to look at more of a HTML 5 framework such as Ionic. Look at installing Eclipse as an editor, as well as installing Node.js. It's mostly HTML 5, CSS3 and some Javascript.

    They're my recommendations anyway. Good luck

    if you are willing to develop android app the you should download eclipse and android sdk which is free then use google and stack overflow to develop your desired app.

    lol, they'll need eclipse but to say that's all a beginner needs to do is ever so slightly mischevious.

    I know you are looking for the best "beginner friendly" solution, but try to stay away from the drag-and-drop app builders. I don't have anything against them, but it's worth much more to invest some time into gaining knowledge around the topic. I started out with the Ionic Framework. It's basically a "wrapper" for HTML files that's displayed within the app. It's really easy to learn. It also comes with a complete UI set and you can customize the appearance of your app through CSS.

    There are many other frameworks out there that you can use. The very first app I built was called "Bootstrap Assistant". This was basically a "test" app to see how the process works. With the Ionic Framework, it only took me a couple of days to complete the entire app. With their latest features, you can use a drag-and-drop builder to design your interface, then continue towards the coding part to add the backend of the app. They also have extensive documentation available on their platform and the CLI tools allow you to easily compile your app for different platforms (They support Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, Firefox OS and more!).

    Probably one of the easiest way to create simple app (no coding) is to use ai2 appinventor, it's free and easy to use. You can find a plethora number of tutorials on youtube, etc.

    Are you already familiar with HTML, CSS and JavaScript? If so, you could use Cordova to build an app that works across all major phone platforms while leveraging your existing skill set.

    It is always easy to make the first Hello World app because its homepage will always provide the tutorial for the beginner

    free app with ads. Gets a bit pricey once you take out the ads.

    I really miss the days of Adobe Flash when it came to games...
    Oh well. Back in the game. Time to learn something new.

    I never learned java before until I saw a library book that told me step by step how to make android apps along with youtube videos. It was good.

    I just want to say that the learning curve for actual coding is a lot easier than learning how to use those app development sites. Because I still have no idea what I am doing on those "easy" app makers.

    I also dont know how to use those RSS scrapper services even though I can make one on my own.

    You can use languages like xamarin, phonegap etc for creating the app.
