Blappsta Mobile App Plugin – Your native, mobile iPhone App and Android App

Description

You are searching for an easy way to create an app out of your WordPress blog? Then Blappsta is a great tool to convert your WordPress site into a native mobile app for iOS and Android in only a few minutes – including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets! Blappsta does not require any skills and no coding and even though you can individualize your app to your own needs. We even upload the App for you, so your readers can download your Android app and Apple app right from the App Stores.

Turn your WordPress blog into a native app for iOS and Android

**You can build your individual Android and Apple app using your favorite colors and your own logo. First of all, please install our free Blappsta WordPress app plugin and then you can change your native app just the way you want it to look. Instantly test it using our Blappsta Preview app for iOS and Android from the Apple App Store or Google Play™ Store. You can test it as long as you want. If you like it, go to http://www.blappsta.com and we will take care of publishing your very own app to the Apple and Google Play Store. Your readers can download your app from there and read your articles on their iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone. If you want to learn more about Blappsta, please check out our website.

Increase the number of loyal readers of your blog with Push Notification in your own native app for Apple and Android

Notify your blog readers with our free push notification service build into the plugin. This service will increase your number of readers largely, as they will receive notifications on their iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone whenever you have to share something with them. You can decide when and what you want to push. The notifications pops up on the Apple or Android devices and are also highlighted in the app itself. We really want to make sure that your readers will never miss a story of you again!

Have your native app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices indexed by Google

As Google takes care of mobile friendliness as a ranking factor we have added an awesome feature to our Blappsta apps: You can get your app indexed by Google with deeplinks right into your native app! This will help to boost your ranking and to gain more app installs and find new readers. At the moment this works for Android apps, but in the future iOS apps will also be indexed.

Features of the app

  • send push notifications to iOS and Android devices
  • share your app content to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and email
  • show the feed of your Facebook page in the app (optional)
  • allows commenting and reading comments in your native app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices
  • a list of the most popular articles instead of the categories or the latest articles up front
  • support for videos
  • show related articles at the bottom of your post in your native app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices
  • continual improvement of the app guaranteed

Features of the plugin

  • fully integrated in WordPress
  • send push notifications directly from a post or page in WordPress
  • edit teaser content in your native app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices
  • add category images for your app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices
  • individualize your app menu
  • set your home screen look
  • Contact form 7 support

There is more to come! These features are currently under development and will soon be part of Blappsta:

  • a growing number of available themes
  • support for wordpress.com
  • Android Tablet version
  • Windows Phone version

How it works

  1. Install and activate the plugin.
  2. To get a preview on what the app would look like, download and install our Blappsta Preview App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
  3. Start the Blappsta Preview App and enter your blog’s URL or simply scan the QR-code you find in the Blappsta Plugin settings with our integrated scanner.
  4. Of course all of the settings can be changed at any time. A simple „pull to refresh“ suffices in order to take over the settings in the app.
  5. Do you like what you see? Then go to www.blappsta.com and we will take care of pushing the app into the stores.
  6. If you have any questions contact us: support@blappsta.com

Reviews

not responsive

I cancelled my service because it did not work with my website and they were not willing to fix it. 2 years later they sending invoices despite sending them several emails and they do not respond to any of the emails

Simpel und äußerst kosteneffizient

Ich habe vor kurzem die erste App mit diesem Plugin realisiert und bin vom Ergebnis, vom Support und von der Roadmap für die Zukunft begeistert. Das geht genau in die richtige Richtung. Es wird bestimmt nicht die letzte App gewesen sein, die mit Blappsta realisiert wird…

Almost perfect, but have to pay

Sandhimself, where you’ve seen that it’s free? In wordpress plugin, when you finish adjusting, I ask the app apk, and I redirected to the website of blappsta where once registered ask me to choose a plan from 9,90 euros / month … Free ????
