Build your own Facebook Apps

App in a box is a really interesting site that claims to be able to help you build your own Facebook applications within 5 minutes.

The site offers to help you build 5 different types of applications at the moment. These are:
  • Text
  • Mp3
  • Video
  • Image
  • Any combination of the above

They also have 3 new ones planned
  • Link to information on other social networks
  • A count down to an event
  • A quiz type app

If you are keen on getting students using social networks like Facebook and want to connect that to other work you are doing without all the hassle of learning lots of programming skills, then this looks worth a try.

I haven't tried it myself yet, so I'm not sure if it does all that, but will post something ( maybe even with a tutorial on once I have.

If you try or have tried it, by all means post a comment below and let me know how you got on.

Sadly, the site is closed and the code is up for grabs if anyone can devote the time to it, according to Tom. What a shame!
