Support » Plugin: Appmaker – Convert WooCommerce to Android & iOS Native Mobile Apps » Good product, great support, will be using it often

  • In short: this is a good, solid App that is easy to build and the Appmaker team offers great customer support.

    Longer story:
    I spent months researching App plugins for WooCommece and always got turned off by bad reviews. The Appmaker offered 14 day free trial, during which they adjusted the app to work with one of our custom plugins and offered customization of another custom plugin we use(at extra charge, which is fair). Building the app is pretty straightforward and easy. The App pulls the content and categories from WordPress and WooCommerce and all you have to do is create menu links to display them. Creating the home page and other pages is a simple drag-and-drop. So, depending on how big is your website, building the app itself is not technically difficult, but it can be time-consuming. We had a few questions (relating to our custom plugins) and the Appmaker team always responded by next day. I can honestly say, that the customer support is outstanding.

    While the App is not difficult to build, uploading it to the Apple Store can be confusing for someone who does not do this every day. You will not be able to upload to Apple Store if you don’t have an Apple Developer ID (and pay $99 US/year). And, you can’t have an Apple Developer ID if you don’t own your own Mac or iPad as the Apple Developer ID requires two-factor-authorization (which ties your ID to your device). The actual process of generating and uploading certificates is a bit lengthy.
    HOWEVER, all of this has nothing to do with the app itself – it is the Apple’s process of publishing an app Just make sure you have enough wine in the fridge and you’ll be fine 🙂
    Uploading the Google Play is pretty straightforward. You need a Google Developer ID which is $25US/year.

    Overall, this is a solid product at a good price and the team behind it works tirelessly to help you when you run into an issue. We wish them all the best!
