This time using KickAppBuild, I actually tried making a net shop application.

You can create multiple categories and classify them freely and display them.

And since the settlement system is prepared, it is okay even if there is no complicated system or security knowledge.

When products are actually purchased ......

The ordering party receives a billing e-mail with payment options such as purchased goods and amount, shipping method and settlement method ......

The order form is automatically sent to the mail address addressed to you. The settlement method is cash or actual goods exchange payment,PayPalYou can set.

◆ I actually tried creating an application
The creation of the application and the test with the exclusive application can be done up to 10 pieces for free. However, in order to open and operate it in general, it is necessary to subscribe to a pay plan. The application created by KickAppBuild is operated on the cloud server, you do not have to set up the payment system yourself or operate the server, but you have to pay the usage fee to use the whole system It is a mechanism.

I will make an application at once. Click "Build For Free" (create free of charge) on the top page

Go to the template selection screen. Click "CATEGORY (category)" on the left side of the screen.

Categories are displayed in a list, and you can narrow down the target template by adding tags of categories that match your purpose. This time I will make a net shop application for iOS. Click "Personal & amp; business".

The categories that are prepared are "All templates", "Books & amp; multimedia (book & amp; multimedia)", "Events & amp; causes" "Locations & amp; pieces (place & amp; "Music & amp; band" "Digital magazine" "Blank templates" "Design & amp; portfolio" (design & amp; photo collection) "Info & entertainment "," Personal & amp; business "" Restaurant & amp; bar "" Miscellaneous (others) ".

Next, select the template of the desired application. Since this time is a net shop, "Mobile Shop" seems to be available from the template. When I click on the image on the right image of the smartphone template ......

Since the image being operated on the application is magnified and displayed, it becomes easier to image the completed form. Click the ">" arrow to display the next image.

Click "×" to close the image.

After choosing a template candidate, click "SELECT".

Then login was requested here. To log in, you can use Google Account and Facebook Account, but this time create a new account. Click "Get Started" at the bottom of the window.

As the account creation screen is displayed, enter the user name and password, the email address and name to be registered, enter the same alphanumeric characters as the image displayed to the right of the input box in "Verification Code". And lastly click "REGISTER" to register. Please note that the registered e-mail address does not contain the URL to check the e-mail address and account linkage, so you can continue to create the application as it is.

◆ "Step 1. Pick Template (Step 1. Choose Template)"
Move to the screen for creating the application based on the selected template. Here you can grasp the image of the application based on the template to some extent. For example, if you click "Categories" ...

The image of the page selling the product "Chicken ($ 7.99)" will be displayed. Grab the approximate image on this page and click "Use This Template" when you decide to make an application in earnest using this template.

Since you decide the name of the application, decide an arbitrary application name in "Application ID" input box and input it.

Since it decides the platform of the application, it selects from among all 4 types "Native iPhone" "Native iPad" "Native Android" "Native Kindle" "Web App". Since I try to make an application for iPhone this time, I select "Native iPhone". Next, click the "Navigation" tab.

Decide the tab display method of the application. Select from "No tabs", "Standard tabs", "Custom tabs", "Wheel". This time I will make a net shop with several categories, so I will select "Custom tabs".

You can edit the colors and functions of the entire application.

You can edit the color at the top of the screen with the "THEME" tab. Click the pull-down menu to the right of "Primary color" and use the color picker to select the color. Color codes can also be used. After choosing a color, click "choose".

This time I made the color of the upper part of the application screen from white to black.

The "CONTENT STYLE" tab sets the color and background of the entire screen. Since this time I will select yellow as the background, click the yellow icon of "Background Color".

The background of the whole application turned yellow.

In the "APP ICON" tab, decide the design of the icon displayed on the iPhone's home screen. You can prepare the image by yourself or you can use the image prepared in advance. Click the image under "App Icon" to change the start icon.

Icons can be uploaded to your favorite images or made from pre-prepared samples. In this time I will use the prepared image, so click "Choose from gallery".

Save the changes with "SAVE".

The launch icon was designed.

Since the application is automatically changed for iOS on the server, the design has collapsed a bit but problems do not occur in operation.
