I read there are a few graphical apps builder that can build iPhone apps without knowing a single code, but these apps builder lack a lot of rich features and they build mostly content management.

Apple once said, there's an apps for that too. Now my question is, is there an app that build apps? Does that make any sense?

Sort of like how Adobe's Dreamweaver can build website w/o knowing html.

Someone should build an apps dreamweaver.

Flash CS5 should let you build apps for the iPhone but you'll probably want to/need to know Actionscript. It's not out yet though.

This new tool doesn't require Flash on the iPhone. It creates a native iPhone application from SWF content.

Well you know what that means!. Theres going to be a flood gate of apps. You think 100,000+ apps for the Iphone is alot. Wait until Flash CS5 comes out.

Theres going to be so many applications hardly anybody is going to make money anymore.

To any IPhone developer. Cash in Now before the new year is up!.

Alright! I really need to chime in here. I've been hearing a lot of this kind of talk. Coming from a WinTel market where there are millions of competitors, 100,000 is nothing.

Not to mention that there are many developers with hundreds of apps on the store, all crap.
For instance:
This Guy (http://appshopper.com/travel/%E2%9C%93-santiago-chile-atlas-and-travel-guide-guia-turistica)
Scroll down to see his app list.

Another 30,000 or so that think the app store is a lottery. All of these immature developers will disappear when they don't make it rich. My guess is that there are only 25,000 or so real competitors.
A majority of the successful apps are from developers that have passion and it shows in the apps they develop.
And if you set the game category aside the app store is wide open.

Keep the faith, keep coding and keep at it.
It's easy to shine when the room is full of candles.

BTW CS5 is not what you think. It will be very hard to make a good app via that software.

From what I've heard, I'm inclined to agree with you.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your conclusions, but there is a big difference between having 100,000s of Windows apps vs. 100,000s of iPhone apps, and that is the fact that those Windows apps are essentially scattered all over the internet whereas all iPhone apps are lumped together in the same store.

I'll go along with that. The iTunes software makes the app store a crowded place. I hope they plan to improve the app browsing ability.

Still, there are tens of millions of iPhones, even more iTouch Ipods.
And Christmas coming up.
I'd be happy with 0.5 percent of that market.

Cheers.
