Support » Plugin: AppPresser - Mobile App Framework » Holy crap, I made an app! (2, actually)

  • (Full disclosure: I work for WebDevStudios who is a partner to AppPresser. I’ve used AppPresser on my own to create 2 apps for personal projects. My review is centered entirely on my personal experience with using the plugin and product.)

    Since Apple first launched the app store, I thought it would be awesome to build apps. But, learning a new coding language in order to do it wasn’t something I ever put time and effort into. Then, along came AppPresser.

    I build my first app using AppPresser 2 and my second app using AppPresser 3. For both of them, my overall experience was pretty similar. It took a VERY short amount of time (a day or two) to knock out about 90% of the app. I then found things about my site I wanted to tweak in order to make the apps better. So I stopped, worked on the website a bit and then picked up where I left off and finished off the app in about half a day.

    Submitting the app to the app stores can be a painful process. Apple’s submission process requires some hoop jumping. This has nothing to do with AppPresser, it’s simply Apple’s process. The Google Play process was far easier. But again, that has nothing to do with AppPresser. I only mention it here because people have asked about that part of the process and figure you might be interested, too. I can also say that both of my apps were approved by Apple and Google Play on the first attempt.

    For me, as a guy who knows his way around WordPress but doesn’t know the first thing about mobile app development, AppPresser was the easiest solution I can think of for building an app. I get the power of using WordPress and all its plugins to do what I want, and then AppPresser is there to help bundle it up and turn it into an app. I’m looking forward to building more apps.
