Illumination Software Creator

By Linda Bradford

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Illumination Software Creator allows anyone to create their own software applications… without writing a single line of “code”. It is more like drawing a flowchart, which the App turns into code.

NOTE: a new update with even more visual improvements is due out Fall of 2014

The idea is simple: Arrange colorful building blocks of functionality however you like to create your own, unique, piece of software.

No reading large computer programming books. No steep learning curve.

One project creates apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, Linux, Windows Desktops, HTML5 websites and Flash websites.

Illumination even gives you the full Adobe Flex, Android Java, iOS Obj-C, JavaScript and Python source code to the projects you create. This provides some major benefits:

1) Apps created with Illumination are 100% native. (iPhone apps are 100% Objective-C, etc.).
2) It's a great way to prototype new projects, or learn new languages.

Tutorials (including instructions for preparing your Mac for building iOS, Android, etc. apps) and example projects can be found on the Support Page.

There is a new version of this software due out soon.

Help, Information and news on updates/upgrades, nocost software downloads, tutorials, videos and more are available on the Support Page.

- Building iOS (iPhone & iPad) apps requires XCode 3.2.6 or XCode 4 or above (all no cost from Apple).
