How to create an app for beginners, resources for parents and teachers

Apps have become very popular over the last few years, and kids today use many apps, either on their computer or on a phone, to do everything from draw pictures to track time. Apps are a great way for kids to get excited about coding and build programs that others can use. AIClub students have built thousands of AI-powered and other apps, including iPhone apps, Android apps, Python apps, and web apps. In this blog post, we answer common questions that parents and teachers have about how kids can get started and build custom apps.


Is it difficult to create an app?


Not really. In our app development classes, we have seen kids as young as in 5th grade create high-quality iPhone apps in IOS using professional coding languages like Swift. These kids create an app in about eight weeks, starting from scratch and without any previous app development knowledge.


Can a kid make an app?


Yes absolutely. We have seen many kids create apps with us. You can see examples of apps that AIClub kids have created here.
