Kleverbeast, co-founded by Hatch Labs CEO and founder Dinesh Moorjani, is today launching in public beta to bring quick and easy app creation to the multitudes, letting anyone (even someone with no programming experience) build a beautiful, content-rich app in a matter of minutes. The service employs a simple drag-and-drop dashboard to help users figure out how to lay out their preferred media.
Ten or fifteen years ago, website creation was relegated to those who either new how to code or had the money to hire developers. Today, sites like Tumblr and WordPress make it easy for almost anyone to build their own website.
But apps are a different story, especially if your vision is a complex, professional-looking app. Moorjani explains that it can cost anywhere between $20,000 on the low-end to six or seven figures on the high-end to get a team together to build an app.
Kleverbeast eats that model for breakfast, offering a full suite of app creation tools starting at just $29/month. Plus, once you build the app it can be released onto all major platforms, including iPhone, iPad and Android.
The service supports all kinds of media, including photos, videos, animations, image effects, and social media integration. You can also update your app contents anytime, and test out the app on your actual mobile device as you build it.
Kleverbeast offers up a bunch of customizable templates built by Kleverbeast’s own expert design team, but eventually Moorjani believes that the platform may be more open for developers to submit their own templates.
The app creation space has been heating up of late, with services like Yapp Events and Appy Couple letting people get a taste for simplified app development, but no one has the same all-encompassing platform as Kleverbeast, covering verticals like fashion, photography, advice, design, small businesses, and almost anything else that would fit into an app format.
To prove just how easy it is to build an app on Kleverbeast, the team made me an app in about twenty minutes during the course of our meeting. Here’s a screenshot of the homepage:
The service is available as a public beta starting today, and the company is offering a free seven-day trial to let you test out the service.
