How to make an iOS app for your website using conduit?
Conduit is an awesome platform/tool that can help you to make a smartphone/mobile version of your website. The procedure is very simple. The very first step is to visit their website and choose an option of creating an app for your website. Then enter the URL of your site and proceed further.
Once you do that, you’ll see an iPhone screen with content seen on your website with a different UI. Besides the iPhone, there are social media options that one can add to their app. There’s also a refresh button at the top right corner of the screen.
At the bottom, there are buttons to access the social media pages of your website.
There are more options available that you can add to your mobile app. Ranging from RSS feeds, Photos and even the provision to add a Contact page button.
Selecting a specific option relating to social media, you just need to add your social media page/profile URL. On adding the link, you can select the layout in which you want your posts/updates to be displayed.
There’s also an option to add a contact button in a similar manner. You can rather add a title, subtitle and description of your contact page. You can also add your details such as phone numbers, email id etc.
Once you’re done with everything, you can just hit “Save and Continue button”. After you do that, you get a URL wherein you can access this app. You also have the option to redirect it to a sub domain.
BUT, YOU’LL HAVE TO CHOOSE A PAID PLAN IN IT TO MAKE YOUR APP DOWNLOADABLE. THIS IS THE ONLY DRAWBACK. BEST PAID PLAN CHOSEN IS THE GOLD PLAN.
How to make an iOS app for your website using Capriza?
Since you’ve learnt, how to make an app using Conduit, doing the same using Capriza as a tool isn’t a rocket science.
Capriza will require you to first register on their site before going ahead with anything else. The basic requirement is having Mozilla firefox since the tool for developing your app would be in the form of an add-on in your browser. Once you download the addon, select your site and select the options you might want to have in your app.
Reading this and then trying to make your app might seem like a rocket science. It might seem difficult to understand it in the beginning. Buts its really simple.
To better understand, here’s a video describing the procedure. The video is by Capriza itself!
