Easy app maker?

I'm creating a simple mobile app for a class project. What is the quickest and easiest way to develop a "proof of concept" or prototype for someone with limited technical skills?

No harm in telling you exactly what I need it to do: a person using the app would be notified at randoms points in the day to open the app (could be either native or in the browser at this point) and click on an area of an image map (which would be recorded and associated with some sort of unique identifier for that user) then on the next screen answer a very short survey. The app would need to also record location data and associate it with the survey and which area of the image map was clicked. As mentioned before it would do this several times a day over a period of about 2 weeks. That's basically it. Ideally the notification piece would be automated and randomized, but I can make do manually doing it.
I have looked at Sencha, Phonegap, and Appcelerator but even they seem to be a bit over my head.
