I used the service Publish5.com to create an app for my blog and video portfolio on the Android marketplace.
Not being a programmer, I don’t know if there are better ways to do this, but for a simple content app, this was painless and cheap!
The website itself walked me through a series of templates where I could host blogs, twitter feeds, or YouTube in their mobile templates. For $19, the company will create an apk with two screenshots for you to upload to the Android Marketplace.
I paid the one time $25 to Google to become a developer, and within an hour, my app was in the marketplace!
A very simple experiment. It feels kind of cool, even though I didn’t do one bit of programming. However, I now have one more way to distribute my content.
