Appliya are no strangers to ‘enabling’ services. In July, they opened Appliya App Development Service which enabled users with no experience or connections to build apps for a nominal fee. This time, partnered with Flickr, Appliya have designed a system which allows apps to be built free of charge, while still netting users royalties.

Tokyo, Japan, December 18, 2009 – APPLIYA Studio, one of Japan’s premier iPhone app publishers, is pleased to announce the beta release of their latest iPhone App publication tool, the App Builder. App Builder is a web-based system that allows anyone to make a fun iPhone app utilizing images from Flickr. You can add any of the countless Creative Commons images on Flickr to your custom app, or add photos from your own Flickr account. For a limited time, users can take advantage of the following offers:
- No service charge (build your app at absolutely no cost to you)
- Users receive a 10% royalty on sales from the app store
- Possibility for additional revenue through advertising in your app
Using the Appliya Studio App Builder is easy. You can pick your images from the public pool of Creative Commons licensed Flickr images using the App Builder’s search functionality, or click “Flickr Login” to login to your Flickr account to import your own images. Pick images for your app icon, cover image, and backgrounds using the simple drag and drop interface. When you’re done choosing pics, enter in titles and descriptions. Finally, enter in contact and payment information so you can receive royalties on sales of your app. Submit your app, and the folks at Appliya Studio will do the rest. This is the easiest way for artists, photographers, and art enthusiasts to get an app on the iTunes App Store.
