MakeGamesWithUs lets you build your own iPhone app for free

Posted: Updated:

MakeGamesWithUs offers a way to learn how to develop your own iPhone app through easy-to-use tutorials.

There's no strings attached to the website. It's a completely free way for those itching to build and publish their own app to let their creative juices flow.

"Our youngest developer is 14," MakeGamesWithUs co-founder Ashu Desai says. "If you're interested in building games, we're the place to be."

Ashu Desai who co-created the site, says he built his first iPhone app at 16. Now at 20, he's hoping to make the process easier and expose people at an early age to producing a real product.

"This experience was eye opening and it was the coolest thing I had ever done and there's people around the world who love what I'm doing and this set the tone for me becoming an entrepreneur," Desai says.

Part of the MakeGamesWithUs is also about education in the classroom.

"We've been setting up courses using our online materials at schools where students in class will basically go to our website and learn how to build games and they'll use the teachers and TA''s for basic help when they get stuck," Desai says.

The courses have already hit MIT and UCLA and Desai says they hope to bring the program to the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech in the next year.
