> I am a little bit familiar with html5
Yeah I am willing to learn as much as possible
For a small team of experienced developers it's probably not a difficult project.
Since you didn't provide details about your previous programming experience, can we assume you don't have any? If so, you do understand that this will probably take several years if you are going to attempt this yourself?
What sites do you plan on getting your data from? Do that have public API's? Some may require a fee and licensing agreements.
Which specific devices are you building your mobile app for?
About the sites, initially i was thinking of somewhere like bbc, but i dont think the have any public apis although i have found a few websites that offer similar things( these are free)
Hi nancy, im targeting android devices (for now anyways)
One of the easiest app design/developments tools I've tested so far is the free Intel XDK. This should give you an idea how easy it is to incorporate a services data feed into your app: Using Services Datafeed in App Designer | Intel® Developer Zone. Below the video is a list of 16 training videos that should get you on your you way fast. XDK has its own device emulator, but hooking my HTC One Android phone up to XDK for additional testing and debugging was a breeze with Intel's App Preview - downloaded directly from Google Play.
Another one is Smartface App Studio.
There are a dozen or more "Low-Code Development Platforms" as well. Just Google the term.
Thank you all for the feedback, its kinda late where i am so I will definitely look into the suggestions and hopefully give good feedbacks
