Create Customized, Branded Android Apps with iSites

Chances are that those of you who run websites or blogs have may have considered creating a mobile optimized website.  Others may have thought to develop an Android or iPhone application to help spread your news or daily rants.  Without proper development experience or having a programmer on standby, many have given up on the idea.  A new service from a company called iSites aims to make it possible to create and self-manage apps for both mobile platforms in an instant.

For as low as $25, you can create your very own, custom web application in a matter of minute.  It essentially amounts to taking your RSS feed, adding some other feeds from services like Twitter and Flickr, and adjusting the colors, logo and description.  All of the heavy lifting is done by iSites so you don’t have to worry about any coding.

Once you’re happy with everything, submit your app and look for it in the app store of your choosing.  Once the app is in the real world, you’ll be able to log in and monitor the app’s performance and see what’s working best for you.  Currently, the service is only available for Apple as the Android version is in beta.  Look for it over the next few weeks.
