    You can create your own smartphone applications. But there are different platforms for which you can create apps for.
    The most popular platform is Android OS. So, to develop an app for this platform you need to first learn how to program in Java because android apps are developed in Java. There are many books as well as videos on the internet about tutorials on Java. After learning Java, you can download the Android Development Kit from Android's official website and use it to create and export your applications in an apk file format. There are tutorials also on Android app development on YouTube. Just search for the channel 'newboston'.
    For other platforms you have to use other development kits.
