I was wondering what the simplest and cheapest way to create a reliable mobile app (android or iphone) would be for the following situations. We are about to pick one of the following two situations:
- If I want the mobile app to mainly contain links or buttons that direct you to specific webpages.
- If I want the mobile app to contain an expert system, where each link is basically a question that will load you an alternate set of text depending on which link or button you chose.
Are either of these simple to make and free of cost to develop? We're looking for the most simple and direct way to go about this.
The final goal is to be able to make this app available in the android market or apple store (for a small, one-time fee for users who want to use it). Is this a step that can be planned out after the creation of the app itself, or does this need to be taken into account from the start?
