ShoutEm provides users with an easy way to construct mobile apps that can be placed on the Android Market or Apple App Store. The user begins by adding their website and content feeds. ShoutEm turns the content into a mobile app for the user. ShoutEm supports most of the current popular content feed and web services, including YouTube, Vimeo, Word Press and Drupal. The app user can perform many common social tasks, such as liking, commenting and sharing content using FourSquare, Facebook and Twitter. The user can also add links that direct their mobile app users back to their website. ShoutEm also supplies customization options so the user can create an app that looks and feels like their very own. These visual elements include the addition of a customized icon, top bar logo, brand color schemes, splash page and home image.Show more screenshots »
ShoutEm was founded in 2008 and released in beta towards the end of 2008. The site was then released publicly as a micro blogging social networking app in December 2008. ShoutEm changed its service in February 2011. The new version of ShoutEm lets you build a mobile application for the iOS platform without coding. The company currently maintains two international locations, including one in New York City and another in Zagreb, Croatia. The team includes CEO Viktor Maronhic, CTO Sasa Sarunic, Advisor Jim Hirshfield and Vice President of Corporate Development Louis Kanganis. According to the ShoutEm blog, the application creators hope to provide the average person with a way to create functional mobile apps without the help of an expensive developer. The blog even states that developers may disagree (hinting at a lack of job security on their part); however it is hard to imagine a complicated mobile app project being handled by an automated application rather than a skilled professional.
ShoutEm helps users create functional mobile applications. The concept provides regular people with an alternative to spending a great deal of money and time. Although it is hard to imagine that a tool like ShoutEm could create a very involved, complicated app, it is certainly an attractive alternative to bloggers and website owners who need something simple and easy to manage.
The ShoutEm website guides users through the mobile app creation process with the help of a cartoonish red and yellow clad super hero. The bright yellow color scheme is contrasted beautifully against a dark grey background. The site has a very fun, unique personality that encourages users to learn more. It takes a very clean, easy to navigate layout and spices it up with eye-catching colors, content and the site’s smiling super hero mascot.
ShoutEm provides users with four account options. The first is the Basic plan which costs around $35 per month (or around $30 per month for annual subscribers).
