Up until a few months ago, I was under the impression that you really had to be an application developer to create applications that people could actually use and enjoy. Today, I am seeing growing indications that this may not be the case at all. Anyone willing to get their heads around a bit of a learning curve can create basic software.

My first example is a tool called QuickFuse. The idea behind QuickFuse is that you can develop VoIP software reasonably easily and without the need for actual programming skills.

What makes QuickFuse really compelling is the fact that theĀ developmentĀ of said software is possible right from within your browser. This makes development of your latest creation completely cross platform.

Speaking of cross platform, however, it should be noted that the simple to develop tools go beyond those simply for VoIP apps. This is where Radical Breeze’s Illumination Software Creator comes into the picture. Available for all three popular platforms, Illumination Software Creator will allow you to create just about anything you can put your mind to.

Both tools are designed to allow the user to create applications using a building blocks like method. So have it, give it a try, and share what you come up with!
