Apple wants to ease app development process for non programmers

On April 13, 2012

According to a new patent application published this week, Apple seems to be interested in making the life easier for iOS developers. According to the Patent Apple is working on a new digital content authoring tool. The patent carries the title “Content Configuration for Device Platforms,” and describes a new authoring tool that would allow users to create content without needing to understand or access computer code.

Apple seems to think that the programming languages are a “hinderance to content creation,” the problem being that while many users have brilliant ideas they lack the computer programming skills to create a new app.

Apple plans to solve this problem by creating a so called “WYSIWYG” development tool, which will implement a graphical user interface. Perhaps this will be like an iWeb for iOS Apps!

The detailed 72-page application was first filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in December of 2011 the PDF can be found HERE.
