  About CodeStore  

CodeStore is run by Chris Mayer, a professional developer with experience developing on iOS, Mac OS X, Windows PC, and Windows Phone.

Chris Mayer developed all of the iOS projects on CodeStore. The Android versions were created by expert Android developers at Afoniq.

I started this website when I realised that there are a lot of talented people who want to get their work on the App Store, but aren't necessarily familiar with coding or software design.

It is the mission of the CodeStore to provide easy to use template apps - so that talented content creators such as authors and artists can simply drop their content into a template and quickly build their own app.

I've had overwhelmingly positive feedback so far, and I'm really pleased to be helping to bring many great books to iPhone, and iPad.

I have more than a decade of software development experience, and am probably best known as the creator of the 'Brain App' educational brain training game for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC, which has over 100,000 users worldwide.

  Terms of use  

By purchasing an project from this site you are permitted to:

  • Use the project(s) to publish multiple apps - these apps must either be your own work, or that of a single author who has authorised you to build an app on their behalf. If you wish to publish the work of multiple authors you must re-purchase the appropriate project for each additional author whose work you are publishing.
  • You may sell your app at any price, but you must not sell or redistribute the source code.
  • You may alter the source code in any way you wish to add or remove features.
  Custom Features  

Not every book is the same, and you may want an app which is built with your book in mind.

I have a number of variation of the projects available on this site, so if you like the look of one of the projects but would like features added or removed then let me know. I may already have what you're looking for.

Please contact me to discuss a custom version.






"Like the others writing about Chris, I have become quite a fan of his work. His system enables everyone the opportunity to jump into the iPad-app arena with little or no iOS programming experience. On top of that, he is SO HELPFUL when you have questions or need an extra bit of code to make your app just right. However, the aspect of interacting with Chris that I appreciate most is his honesty. For me, there is no one else to work with on app development. Thanks Chris."
Rose Williams

"THANK YOU! Can't believe it. This is exactly the solution we needed, as learning to program was killing us"
Jeremy Burtenshaw

"Not only has Chris developed an extremely helpful template for publishers but his help and support have been invaluable. The Story Book project has been easy to learn and allowed me to get my book published."
Tayllor Johnson

"Just wanted to say thanks, its a great project. I'd been quoted £550 for someone to build the app for me. Now for less than that I've bought a Mac, joined Apple's developer program, bought your code and submitted the app. I can obviously carry on making more apps now too."
Gary Solomon

"Without CodeStore's Comic Book App project, I don't know how else I would have gotten my project onto the App Store. I have zero experience programming, so to think of what I'd have to have gone through without CodeStore is enough to make the skin crawl! I can personally attest to getting help practically instantaneously, every time I have needed it."
Shane Peters

"Purchased the whole package and it was a big help! My first book app is live and starting work on a second! Couldn't be happier!"
B. J. DeLong

"Thanks for all your support Chris. Submitted two apps and recommended you to about 6 people. You rock."
Sean Ajayi

"I want to send you all my appreciation for the template, it is excellent and more than easy to configure. I can tell you that it has taken me 3 days in total to build an app (one day to make all the steps to publish it because I am completely new to Mac computers)"
