This new research supplements Clutch’s existing research in the mobile app development industry.

WASHINGTON, DC, March 18, 2015 -- Clutch has released its first piece of research identifying leading do-it-yourself app development software.

Analysts reached out to over 35 app development software companies with an identifiable track record of successfully meeting clients’ app development needs. The research findings are based on an algorithm of factors that include the breadth of software features, client reviews, and market presence. Listed below are the identified leading app development software tools:

Mag+, Appy Pie, Appsmakerstore, Yapp, GoodBarber, GameSalad, Apptive, AppInstitute

“These software tools vary in customer and industry focus with certain tools fitting specific purposes better than others. However, these products and the support teams behind them have all demonstrated a commitment to meeting their clients’ development objectives,” explained Ryan Stevens, Lead App Development Software Analyst at Clutch. “The biggest hurdle an app development software faces is striking the balance between ease of use and ensuring that the tool will meet the customer’s functional needs.” 

Profiles of each app development software detailing the tool’s key feature areas and displaying full-length client reference interviews are published on Accompanying this research is a companion piece on the costs associated with traditional mobile app development services which may help business buyers recognize the value and feasibility of a do-it-yourself app development solution.

Clutch’s effort to identify leading app development software is ongoing, and the firm encourages established software companies to apply to participate for potential inclusion in future research updates.
