AppMakr makes annoying branded iPhone apps even easier to create
I'm also not saying that AppMakr doesn't work. The demo video (check it out after the jump) shows off a quick and easy-to-use creation process, and the price is less than what you'd pay a dedicated developer to make you an app from scratch. AppMakr also helps you navigate the sometimes-dicey App Store approval process, and will even publish your app through its own Apple Developer account, which is all worth a bit of money in itself.
Here's my beef, though: an iPhone app based around an RSS feed of your web content is just annoying. Why would I want to download that, even for free, when I can just add your site to Google Reader along with my other favorites and view it in a great RSS app like Reeder? How obsessed with a site do you need to be before you'll clutter up your home screen with its logo? So, no offense to AppMakr, I just don't see the appeal of the trend it's riding.
