I am looking for an online mobile app builder, or any recommendation to rapidly build a simple emoticon app prototype/poc... preferable for free. The functionality I am looking for are simple at this moment... assuming I already have a set of emoticon designs, the app should have the ability for users to use the emoticons on SMS and Whatsapp, of course if I can get those to all other platform with the build-in keyboard will be better! But for now, SMS and Whatsapp only. A set for free, and another set for a fee.
Most importantly.... do I get to own the code after I build the app through the online platform? It also needs to support iPhone and Android (if support BB and MS, great, if not that's ok).
A little bit about my development background... well, I used to be a software engineer in C/C++/UNIX/AIX environment, built a few web app with VB asp.net, also managed teams with Servlet/JSP, and was a consultant on BI projects, very familiar with all database platform and MSSQL and PLSQL. Well... I have been building startups and running a core accounting/finance company now, not much hands on programming for years. As you can see.... no knowledge in the mobile app space and no time to learn from scratch. Any tool to assist rapid development to pump this thing out is the goal... hopeful in few weeks if possible?
Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated :)
