What is a native mobile app?

Mobiloud apps, on every platform, are native mobile apps. Most competing solutions instead give you HTML5 apps, which means really mobile sites re-packaged as apps. The big difference is in performance and user experience.

Native mobile apps are fast, run smoothly on the mobile devices they are designed for, and make full use of each platform's capabilities. They're also easier to use, because they're designed to look and feel familiar on each mobile platform, be it iOS or Android. A mobile app allows your users to receive push notifications, share with a single tap, quickly comment on articles and access content offline. In short, if you want to impress your users, go native and build a real mobile app!

Why should I build a mobile app for my blog?

More and more, people are choosing to use their smartphones and tablets to read online content. Not only these devices make reading more comfortable, which explains why people prefer them to PCs, but there are now millions of mobile users who have just started accessing online content, as they never really used a PC before. On these mobile devices, users spend 80% of their time on apps. So no wonder, they expect to find your content in the form of a mobile app!

With a mobile app you'll be able to convert casual visitors into loyal followers. Why? Because your app will be front and center, easily accessible from the home screen of their device. And because you can alert with push notifications whenever you post something new.

How much does it cost?

The Mobile App Plugin is free to install. You can design your mobile app and test it online and your own device, for free. Once you're happy with the result and would like to publish it on the App Store or Google Play, we have simple pricing plans you can choose from. Check the pricing plans on Mobiloud.com.

Is there a quick demo of a Mobiloud app?

Yes, check out our quick online demos for iOS and Android.

Can I test out my app before I buy?

What functionality will my mobile app offer?

Your mobile apps will automatically show the latest content from your site, with no need for you to update it manually. Your app will display posts and pages, comments and categories. Your users will be able to read content online and offline, share it with a single tap, save their favourites, leave comments on your articles and, most importantly, receive push notifications alerting them to new content.

Are push notifications supported?

Push notifications are a key features of mobile apps, something a site on its own cannot offer. They're a fantastic subscription mechanism that can really help you drive growth and traffic over time. With Mobiloud you can send notifications automatically whenever you post new content (with optional filters) or manually, whenever you want. You can also attach a page or post to your notification, so you can use them for anything: alert your users to a new event, promotion or send urgent and important updates - it's a direct connection with your users!

Watch the video below for an overview of the push notifications features.

Can I show my pages or an external URL in the app?

Your site is built with pages rather than articles? No problem, you can set a page as your app's home screen, add pages to the app's menu and allow your users to easily navigate a whole hierarchy of pages. Use it to build apps for a company site, catalogues and any sort of reference apps.

Beyond pages and articles, you can now use any URL as your app's home screen or as an entry in your app's menu. Use it to embed functionality from any web app into your app, like forms, widgets or your profile on social networks, the possibilities are endless!

Are image galleries supported?

Image galleries are supported natively, with a simple design that enhances your photography and lets the user quickly browse your images.

Users can swipe between images, save or share them and quickly get an overview of all the images you attached to your articles.

Can I modify the code or add my own CSS?

Sure, click on Settings/Editor to add your own HTML/PHP/CSS code and customise the contents and looks of your mobile app's screens. You can easily pull in content from custom fields and add any functionality and styling adjustments you need.

Watch the video below for an overview.

Are custom fields supported?

Yes, you can easily add custom fields to the article list (one field supported) or anywhere and in any number within the content of posts or pages. You can add your own code using our Editor, or we can help you out.
