All this while, building an app is like a rocket science for non-developers or non-professionals who are not familiar with the particular structure. But not anymore. 27-year-old Duke University alumnus, Juan Porras, who is at the head of Durham-based start-up called Rheti, has launched a new app that allows non-developers or non-professionals to build their own software applications for mobile devices.
According to the company's chief technology officer and mobile developer, Rafael Tavarez, he feels overwhelmed with requests for building others' apps.
"There is a trend for people that are building applications themselves who don't want to spend a lot of money and they don't want to spend a lot of time figuring out how to program apps," Porras said.
According to their website at http://www.rheti.com/how-it-works, Rheti will be available via Google Play, which is targeted for Android mobile phone users.
"It's three steps - very, very simple. You start with a template catalog, we'll call it, and then write your app's name, and then you select your app's icon, and you're essentially done with the building, so you can see your app created after you submit your icon," Porras said.
