Bizzness Apps is one of 53 companies chosen by VentureBeat to launch at the DEMO Spring 2011 event taking place this week. These companies do pay a fee to present, but our coverage of them remains objective.Bizness Apps, a self-service tool for creating simple iPhone apps, today announced at DEMO Spring 2011 that users will be able to simultaneously create apps for both iPhone and Android using the company’s service.
The company, which focuses on small businesses, allows users to easily create, edit and manage an app online without any programming knowledge. Users can create an account, customize the app based on the businesses information and determine any features it may want, which may include GPS, Facebook and Twitter sharing, messaging, check in coupons, event calendars or an information tab.
Bizness Apps isn’t the only ones looking to create apps for businesses. The company notes that Mobile Roadie and SwebApps are its main competitors. Though Bizness Apps may have an advantage as it only charges $39 a month for its service with no set-up fee, compared to the others which range from $29-$100 per month and $400 plus in set-up fees.
The Chico, California-based company, founded in 2010, has raised an undisclosed angel round, though cofounder and chief executive Andrew Gazdecki notes it was under $500,000. The company has created more than 500 iPhone apps to date.
