    iBuildApp is truly wonderful. It does, however, have two things that are disadvantageous, and I really wish they would sort these out:

    1. Images and other files MUST be kept on a web server, and cannot be stored in-app. That means that your app MUST be connected to the Net if it has images, otherwise they simply won’t be visible to your user.

    2. As a default, which CANNOT be changed by the developer, every app requires tons of permissions, even if the app developer does not need them. For example: I create a simple app, but, when the user installs it, the user is told that a whole range of permissions, including “Services that cost you money” are required. For many users, that is an instant turn-off. And, as app developer, I know that my app doesn’t make use of those permissions, but I can’t change that. Although I might assure users that my app doesn’t use it, why would they believe me? Many developers have complained about this to the iBuildApp people, but they have not changed it, and also do not offer an explanation for why those permissions are needed.

    So, at this stage, I give it a 4/5.
