A decade ago, the question for businesses was:, do we have to get a website or not? Many were unsure of the answer then but these days it’s obvious. If you’re not on the web, then you don’t exist. Today, companies are asking a new question: do we have to get a mobile app or not? The answer is a resounding yes.
Sure, your business might already have a website that can be viewed on smartphones, but apps have one clear advantage. A well-made app can provide a better user experience than even the best mobile websites are capable of right now. Mobile apps can serve as a natural extension of your business, offering interactive ways to solve client problems, enabling users to promote your brand for you, and even giving you valuable customer-driven metrics to help you enhance your products and services.
People say, “There’s an app for everything,” but my company didn’t have one a month ago. Though I saw the value of my brand having a constant connection with my customers, I thought that the high cost of developing a mobile app probably wasn’t worth it. Someone seems to have had the same problems and went out to build a service that lets you create a mobile app in a few easy steps. The best part is that you can try it out for yourself since it’s totally free (no expiring trials here).
Having no coding skills myself, I found that the Infinite Monkeys app builder is exactly what I needed. I just typed in some info about my company, dragged and dropped a few elements and then published it. I had my own mobile app good to go, just like that. Yes, it truly is quick and painless. Their service is currently reaching out to niche communities that want to have their own apps. These interactive mobile apps can be published to native iOS, Android and via HTML5 for compatibility with web-enabled smartphones.
I find this offer useful for a lot of businesses like restaurants, bands, real estate agents and bars, as well as for communities like churches, schools, sports teams and bloggers. They can engage their fans in real time with content feeds from social networks, videos, music, photos and chat rooms, all within the app.
The simple point and click app builder offers a user interface that is certainly very likable and I was surprised that despite my lack of any programming skills whatsoever, I managed to create a mobile social networking app that was linked to Facebook and Twitter in a few minutes.
