Glide is really interesting. The basic idea is that you fill a dropbox folder full of content, and the service generates a beautiful app for you from the content. The elevator pitch is “Hypercard for iOS”.
I’m not sure if Glide will be successful, but I have no doubt that at some point something is going to be developed that allows just about anyone to create a basic mobile app that looks good and Just Works.
Something like Wordpress for mobile.
It’s also clear that the low-end of the custom App Consulting market, which has been dwindling for years through consolidation and evaporation of profit, will finally be dead.
(Of course, when the custom App Consulting market dies, a new market for building all these one-off Wordpress-ish apps will spout up).
