Which software to build app?

Posted 15 June 2019 - 12:53 PM

Hi ! i got an idea for an app i want to build, mainly for myself. its a fairly simple app, which uses gps tracking + calculation of prices. ( example, you drive across a certain point on the map ( connected to google maps) when you pass the point, a sum is added. you drive back and at the same point on the map. another sum is added to your "whole sum" which can be revied whenever you want to.

i got no experience at all.
i am wondering
which software should i use to get started? any recomendations ?
and for people with much experience, on a scale from 1 to 10. how difficult it is to build an app like this?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Which mobile platform?
Does this data need to be saved in a DB on a webserver?

With the limited information.. about a 6 or 7.

is there any software which can make apps for both platforms?
or is all this going to be pure coding ?

The data only needs to be stored on the phone which uses the app.

There are some software toolkits that can create apps on multiple platforms, such as Xamarin and Flutter.

No matter what, building an app will involve some coding. To get into the world of programming, I would do some tutorials on an easy programming language like Python to learn the basics.

Building an app is a real challenge. But programming is fun (and you can be well-paid too) :)
