People now spend more time using the Internet from their smartphone than from their desktop or laptop and the trend is increasing year on year. Having a strong presence on mobile is increasingly important for all businesses.
However websites on mobile often provide a subpar experience. Slow loading, missing plug-ins and fiddly navigation frustrate rather than enthuse your customers.
The best mobile experience comes from native apps, designed and built for the platform and taking advantage of all its features. The problem is native apps are expensive to develop, putting them out of reach for many small businesses. That’s why we designed the Appable service.
We’ve built a modular system that lets us quickly create an app around your content and brand that minimises the amount of code that needs to be written and maintained. This massively reduces the cost to you and means we can build you an app in days rather than weeks. With our Starter Package costing from just £649, having an app becomes an affordable choice for nearly all businesses.
Additional modules and content updates are available at extra cost. After the first year there’s a year maintenance fee if you want your app to remain live in the App Store, starting at £99 for the Starter Package. If you want to regularly update your app’s content we can offer you a discounted monthly payment plan, please get in touch for details.
You can build your app around a menu, a tab bar or a grid of icons. Here are some of the modules we’ve developed which we can use to build your app:
Custom modules can be designed based on your needs. We can also help you with brand design and content, get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Our service currently only targets the iPhone and iPad. In many key markets (the UK, EU and US) this represents 20-40% of all smartphone users. Many studies show that iPhone users are far more engaged with their devices and have higher income. In other words, these are the people you want your business to reach.
We pride ourselves in making quality, engaging apps. In recent years Apple has started clamping down on the kinds of apps that it allows on the App Store. To make sure your app passes review it needs to offer more content and interactivity than a simple mobile website. We can help advise you on picking a combination of modules to build a great app. If for some reason we still can’t get your app approved on the store then we won’t charge you.
There are some limitations to the degree of customisation we can provide you with the prebuilt modules, although we have designed the system to be as flexible as possible. If necessary we can deliver custom modules just for your app for an added fee. Certain classes of app are not suited to the Appable service and we’ll tell you at the outset whether you need a fully bespoke solution.
