I have an app under development with Telerik Mobile App Development, but no Apple iOS Developer account. Any developers out there who want to pair up to release my app?

I may be able to help you out. What kind of app do you have? Is it already built and ready to go?

I am working to make a "Family Search for Kids" kind of thing. I sent a message to Family Search earlier today, so I am expecting a response in the next couple of days. Thanks for letting me know.

Dustin, if I could get an e-mail from you that would be a big help, so I won't have to refer to this site every time I need to reply.

If you are not yet familiar with app development, this year may not be your time to shine. If you would like, however, I could recommend a few things to get you started. Do you have a Mac or Windows-based computer?

Im almost finished with mine. If you need some dev help, just let me know what your project is.

Wow, that's good Zac. It was a long journey for me to find Truth , and our brothers and sisters from the lost tribes. The early project where with ideas from already existing games, though i didn't had a spirit to finish. It was before finding Latter Day Saints.
( Ideas from the past, not finished) I thought of 2D - space strategy ... or 2D - tanks base defence... the question is how to add spirit there ... some ideas of trivia parts i have, for sacred scrolls , history truths... this can be integrated in the game. Do you have mail to contact ? )
 
 
# Ryan Paul Spataro 2014-07-13 17:05
Zach, I have an idea not for a game but for an app to share the Book of Mormon and I am looking for someone. Would you be interested?
 
 
# Danniel 2014-06-26 12:46
Oh ... and there is a freeware library, i was using to start some projects ( for Windows ) - Allegro . (Here is a link:)
http://alleg.sourceforge.net/

If there are interested people in creating a game, will be very happy, for now i have some spare time for programming.
You can send a messages also to my e-mail : danniel.nik@gmail.com

Ray, a project to move MLS functionality to the Web is already underway and has been for the past few years. You can learn more here: https://www.lds.org/callings/melchizedek-priesthood/records-and-technology-support/about-clerk-resources?lang=eng. Thanks! -Justin

Another way for people to create games without programming experience is to use game salad. It is a pretty neat tool that has a lot of capabilities. I've seen these type of games:

Endless runner
Run/jump (like Mario)
Jetpack
Angry birds
Canon game
Asteroid

Interesting .)) Reminds me of GameMaker and Game Editor .) Thanks for sharing.)
Although i prefer plain C programming using assembler when needed, because learning new environment and all it's features takes time.
