Introducing Andromo - Create Android Apps Without Coding

Have you ever tried to learn how to develop an Android app?

If so, you might know that it requires knowledge of programming languages like Java or Kotlin.

Android development is surely a difficult and complex task. But, the Andromo app maker provides you a solution that makes the job a lot easier. It allows you to make an Android app without coding.

It’s a website, meaning that you don’t need to install Android Studio or any other software on your device.

In my opinion, Andromo is a great tool for those who find programming a bit difficult. It enables you to design an app by offering a range of ready-made app features.

For example, you can add the following features with just a click.

  • Photo Gallery / Wallpaper
  • Audio
  • Video
  • Maps
  • Surveys
  • Polls
  • Ads
  • etc.

And you know what, it’s even easier to customize the design according to your business requirements.

So, no matter whether you are a programmer or not. You can now design, monetize, and publish your app by performing simple steps.

There is a huge number of apps on Google play that are built on Andromo. You can build Games, Recipe apps, Educational apps, Business apps, and many others according to your requirements.

Today, I will explain to you the features and working of Andromo in detail.

So, let’s get started!


Features

Andromo has tons of features (aka Activities) that could help you design any kind of app. But, for the sake of this blog post, I’ll briefly introduce you to a few of them.

Google Maps

Andromo Map activity provides you the facility of displaying your location on the Map. Your user can easily get the navigation and direction of your business.

PDF

By using Andromo PDF activity you can easily insert a PDF file into your Android application. But, remember that this PDF document will open externally.

Youtube Video

You can display Youtube videos inside your Android app by using Youtube activity. Youtube Data API v3 is used in this activity.

Audio

You can create an audio player inside your Android application by using Audio activity.

Photo Gallery

You can upload a photo in your app and display it in the Gallery section by using the Photo Gallery activity. This Activity also allows you to set the size and layout of the photo.


How It Works

In this section, I’m going to explain to you the working model of the Andromo website and how you can make an Android application using it.

At first, you need to create an account on the Andromo.com website. It’s free and no credit card is required. Basically, they offer a completely free trial for two weeks. During this time you have access to all the activities.

I think 14 days are enough to explore this app builder and create a mobile app. After that, if you like this platform then I would highly recommend you to buy a subscription plan.

I myself bought its “PRO” plan that helps me design custom apps for my clients with ease.

Anyways, login to the Andromo.com website and then click on the “CREATE AN APP FOR FREE” button.

You have to pick the theme according to your requirement, and then give a name to your app. After that click on the “BUILD THIS APP” button and you are ready to go.

You will find the following tabs on your screen
