Appmachine
This Appmachine helps people without technical training build things like websites, apps and games. As a designer, it looks like the beginning of the end for designer and coder. Pros: It is well built in simple mobile app. It looks like a very easy and simple process. I think it is good for prototyping something, but not designing. Cons: But I don't think this has much to do with design at all. It also costs over $1,000. If I were an employer, I will hire a designer and let them do better than an app to make an app. As the world moves forward to automatized and digitalized, maybe this is the natural order of things. Like, many people use Wordpress, Cargocollective, and Behance instead of building their own website. This "App Machine" challenges the future of design and technology. But I'm sure whenever technology move on to the next iteration of technology, there will be new and better tools like this.
