It's actually not hard. There are a number of companies that offer the
ability to create your own app for a minimal fee, which is great for
small businesses looking to stay relevant in this increasingly mobile
world. Or if you just have a lot of time on your hands.
Take Conduit. The company made its money creating branded toolbars found
on your browser. But over the past few months, it has been expanding
into the mobile world with a free service
that allows you to build an app and mobile Web site in minutes. It's
part of a planned shift by the company to build its consumer awareness
after spending years serving other businesses in a white label capacity.
