Awesome... Apple patents a WYSIWYG app builder

The first business I started was a mobile app’s business back in 2001, for the then popular PalmOS and PocketPC/Windows Mobile.

It was an amazing tool that allowed me to rapidly churn out basic apps (like Personal Information Management type apps) in just a few hours. I created a few commercial apps this way, but the real advantage was being to advertise ‘build a custom app’ services which usually carried a premium. For example a customer in Norway wanted an app to keep track of her local bus stop times. She forwarded me a scanned copy of the bus timetable and I sent her the finished app the next day.
