Reviews

Mobile Advantage with MobiLoud

MobiLoud Canvas is making it easy and doing a great job, both on iOS and Android, to create individualized mobile solutions. Design improvements to your existing WordPress template are applied immediately to the existing app. I have been nothing but impressed with MobiLoud compared to the other options and nothing but happy with their service and customer care!

Impressed

I've been tracking MobiLoud for a while and I'm impressed with their "News" product for bloggers. This solution ("Canvas") should prove popular with WordPress developers wanting to build a mobile app for their clients.
