Everyone knows Apple's iOS App store has been a runaway success since it's launch. Everyone wants to create the next big iApp success story. But almost everyone believes you need to be able to program and assemble an App in XCode first, right? Wrong! Now anyone, can create their own iOS App for the App Store which will be available to millions of potential customers. Using AppOmator's simple graphical user interface you can build an iPhone or iPad App with ease and without writing a single line of code.

For musicians and DJ's this means you can release your Albums & DJ Mixes as iPhone & iPad Apps. Check out the videos below that'll show you how to make menus, link to music and videos, and then provide a "Buy" button that takes users to your songs in the iTunes Music Store. In fact these videos show how the Set Your Mix & Let It Ride app works and was created using appOmator. You can download appOmator for free here.

01 - Introduction

Making an Album App is not only a cool thing to do, it also provides Copy Protected versions of your music to your fans! Because all Apps must be downloaded from the App Store to your device, there's virtually zero piracy of Apps, which means wrapping your songs in an App is an excellent way to copy protect them.

Best of all AppOmator is a very cool tool and makes creating iPhone and iPad Apps a breeze.

02 - App Overview

This app consists of three menus. A splash screen (when you launch the app), the Main Menu and the Track List.

03 - Timeline Overview

AppOmator has tracks (like in Final Cut, Logic, Garageband, etc). Each track has a Timeline which you can place your audio, video or even still images in.

04 - Working with Markers

For DJ Mixes, this feature rocks. Imagine a DJ Mix which is 40 minutes long. In a Timeline you can create Markers which allow you to jump to the different parts of the mix directly from a menu button or using the Next/Previous Transport controls. Adding and deleting markers is very intuitive.

05 - Jumping Buttons to Markers

Buttons have targets, that they can "jump" to. This means any button in a menu can jump to another menu, a track, and even better a marker within a track.

06 -Interactive Music Apps

Now you've seen the basics of how to create a an iOS app for your Band, check out the audiobase.com Sample Player as a free example of how a Drum Sampler iOS app easily be created using appOmator.

07 - Quality Apps Get In

Apple's App Approval Process is getting tighter. Don't let that put you off though! Check out this video for tips on how using the extra features in AppOmator can help your App sail through the App Aproval Process.

Remember that making your App look as professional as possible will give it a better chance of being noticed and downloaded. Make use of Photoshop to design professional looking buttons and graphics for your menus, use AppOmator's Gallery features to great beautiful looking slide shows... Putting the extra time into designing your App before building it can help to make it shine on the App Store!
