Questions you might have

Do I need to know how to code?

Nope, the hard part's already done. However, being comfortable with a graphics program will go a long way.

What plugins/software do I need?

None! Tenterhook is completely web-based and requires no plug-ins or software.

Do I need to be creative?

It certainly helps. But even if you don't consider yourself the creative type you should give Tenterhook a try. You might surprise yourself.

Is this thing free? Will it stay free?

You'll always be able to create a few free apps, but storage restrictions will limit the number of assets you can upload. In the future there may be an option to upgrade your account and purchase additional app slots and/or storage.
