Statistics are an important part of our daily lives and it’s been a long-awaited feature which was developed based on the feedback from our amazing users.

We have started simply with the number of downloads for each platform, listed by date and the platform. We intend on improving it by adding daily usage stats and even going deeper geolocalising hits.

We hope to be launching the plugin update next week.

Other updates include:

  • Fixed the redirect problem – Some users have had problems with the opening page.
  • Making the setup better.
  • Better preview functions.
  • Fixed a problem not allowing the to change the colors of font in the top & bottom bar.
  • YouTube videos will now open in a sperate window. Google no longer allow us to embed directly video which caused problems. Now, the videos will open in a browser.
  • Hiding the slideshow tab for themes that are not compatible.

If you have any great ideas to improve #WordApp please don’t hesitate to send me your feedback on our facebook group:

For those who don’t know me, I have been selling mobile apps for around 4 years now. I have always been a developer which amounts to over 18 years experience. I’m also a local business owner with partners in restaurants, bars/pubs, and hotels. I have a real love for my local area and the small businesses which make up 90% of my business.

4 years ago I knew that mobile apps were going to be BIG. I wanted to sell mobile apps to small businesses in my area for under $1000 plus a monthly fee. So, I created my first in-house app builder so I could make apps quickly and spend my time selling. 3 months of work and 1 app sold I was ready to go out and sell WOOHOO! I was really excited and looking forward to showing people how a mobile app could change their business.

Repeating to myself the positive sales points.

“Thanks, to push notification you can send messages to your clients when you are empty”.

So, I got in my car and was looking forward to the millions rolling in.

But it wasn’t to be 🙁 I knocked on door after door. The business owners happily let me in and were very interested but I was well ahead of time. I constantly hit “we already have a website” or “We are investing in Facebook only at the moment”. After a couple of weeks, I was starting to despair. I was selling 1 app here and there but not enough to make my dreams of an army of sales people and me and a team of developers building the hundreds of sold apps.

So, I took a step back and looked at the data. I realised that they were just not getting the picture and were not seeing the huge potential of a mobile app.  I needed another way to show off the potential of a mobile app which was easier to sell got me through the door and helped me to make the big sale later on.

Build your own city app today!

So, after nights of thinking a rattling my brain, I thought of an old website I owned in the early 90’s. I setup a site with my father for our local area. It wasn’t anything amazing just a what-to-do in my town site. A list of businesses and events. This is where I came up with the idea of city apps. A simple app that would tell people what is going on the town. Where to eat and the business owners would be able to send push notifications to tell my users what was going on. Killing 2 birds with one stone, giving my app users something worth downloading and at the same time showing the business owner the power of apps & push notifications. There were hundreds of sites doing worldwide but I wanted LOCAL, LOCAL LOCAL to be my main sales point.

So, the City App was launched I worked night & day making a mobile app that would be easy for the clients to use. I named the app after the town where I was living and planning to sell. 7 days later apple accepted the app and I was ready to go and sell. I was almost more excited about this app than the builder I built a couple of months ago, I was sure this was going to work. I had printed t-shirts with the name of the app and I love my city on the back.

Selling was for me going to the break or bust. I had to make it work. So, I searched Facebook for leads looking for business owners that were involved in the town and ongoing events. I knew that if I targeted the people that were proud to be a citizen of the city, they would be proud to be on the app. I put together a 50% off deal for the first 5 businesses on the app, that way it started the ball rolling and no one like’s an app with no content.

I hit the road with one ambition sell, sell, sell. I had 3 appointments the first day as I cold-called before. The appointments went really well and I sold 2 out of the 3 on the first day. The 3rd business said they wanted to wait to see if their competition signed up.

After one week of door-to-door sales, I came home with my first 10+ paying customers and an appointment to make a presentation in front of a group of 20 more local businesses.

I launched my first city app 3 years ago and haven’t looked back since. I started by going to the local chamber of commerce and tourist offices who helped me by leaving flyers and talking about the app to businesses & end users. I didn’t realise it at the time but thanks to the return to ‘local’ becoming extremely fashionable I hit a real button with the businesses owners. I was personally seen as doing something for my local community and invited to events and groups to present the app & my company.

Now here is the great part: As planned the city app was a great door opener. The advertisements inside the apps were an easy sale and the businesses were proud to be on the app. I included 1 push notification per month in each package sold to the businesses. This meant they could see the power of a push. After sending the push I would phone the client to let them know it was sent and I would be calling them back to see how it went (a couple of days later). To which I did, in 85% of occurrences the business owner was really impressed with the results and this is where I came in with my right hook (thanks, Gary Vee). If the campaign was a success I would say “you know if you had your own app you would be able to send push notifications to your clients every day”.

Conclusions :  I have always been very lucky in my life I often stumble upon ideas when doing something different. City Apps are an amazing sales tool, not only for the businesses listed but for you. I now have a team of salespeople throughout the west coast and we are expanding into new towns every month. I know that selling apps maybe that little easier now than 4 years ago. But when selling if you have a tool that can help you sell easier, use it!

As a developer and a business owner, I spend hours reading the latest (and old) books, I’m always reading about building, marketing & investing in my business online & offline. So, I have put together my favourite book list for developers & entrepreneurs that I have read in 2016.

I have read all these books and have I learnt a lot thanks to their authors. As a side note if you are like me, a work addict, you may find you don’t have enough time to read a book every month. This is where this amazon helps, I generally go for a run 3 times a week and listen to my favorite audiobook on audible.

Growth Hacker Marketing: A Primer on the Future of PR, Marketing, and Advertising

Now this book I had to read twice to love it. If you are new to growth hacking this book will help you think about business in a different way. It certainly changed my life.

A new generation of megabrands like Facebook, Dropbox, Airbnb, and Twitter haven’t spent a dime on traditional marketing. No press releases, no TV commercials, no billboards. Instead, they rely on a new strategy—growth hacking—to reach many more people despite modest marketing budgets. Growth hackers have thrown out the old playbook and replaced it with tools that are testable, trackable, and scalable. They believe that products and businesses should be modified repeatedly until they’re primed to generate explosive reactions.

Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual

As a developer, this is one of the best books I have ever read. It helps you think out of the box and deals with marketing, getting a job, investing your money & getting fit.

Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual is a unique guide, offering techniques and practices for a more satisfying life as a professional software developer. In it, developer and life coach John Sonmez addresses a wide range of important “soft” topics, from career and productivity to personal finance and investing, and even fitness and relationships, all from a developer-centric viewpoint.

AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness

Some love him, some love to hate him whatever your opinion in this book he gives some great advice.

Gary Vaynerchuk—the inspiring and unconventional entrepreneur who introduced us to the concept of crush it—knows how to get things done, have fun, and be massively successful. A marketing and business genius, Gary had the foresight to go beyond traditional methods and use social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to reach an untapped audience that continues to grow.

Thank you – We are really proud to announce this week that we are celebrating our 30,000th free app created with WordApp.

This venture has been amazing for us. So, we were thinking of a way to celebrate, other than going to the pub for a drink.  So we decided that a great way to celebrate would be to host a giveaway!

We wanted something useful for everyone with a mobile app or looking to build an app.

Here’s what we are going to give away :

  • 1 copy of WordApp Gold mobile app for life.
  • 1 full marketing pack for your app including (banner, stickers, NFC, & car stickers).
  • 10 window stickers for your app & 3 NFC packs.

We are really proud of WordApp. Started a little less than 6 months ago, by a small group of WordPress & mobile geeks. We have come a long way since then and are getting closer and closer to our aim of the best mobile app builder in the world.

A very big thank you

WordApp 1.16 is finally here!

After several months of hard work and debugging (thanks to our amazing community), WordApp 1.16 is finally here. Full of new features and bug fixes this version is truly an improvement on 1.15.

You can download the new update here : https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordapp-mobile-app/

Here are some of the new features and fixes :

• More themes.
–  Ten new themes for your app.
• A big decrease in size
 – One of our biggest complaints about WordApp was it’s size. Weighing in at over 46MB many servers were just simply refusing to install it causing all sorts of frustration.
Now WordApp 1.2 is less than 7MB and can pretty much be installed on any server.

•  Splash screen fixed
 – Android never had a default splash screen or loading message when you launched the app you were greeted with a white screen whilst the app launched. Not no more… You have a beautiful splash screen which fades out into the background once the app ist loaded. Neat!
• Faster speed between pages
• Loading messages between loads

Some awesome new add-ons :

  • QR Code reader
  • Geo-Fenced push notifications
  • Native Share facebook, twitter, email etc..

Our new help section is here.

After trying several help desks and gmail to provide support for you. We have finally decided to use Zendesk to give you the best possible help section & support.
OK it isn’t perfect yet but we are adding daily content & it’s a darn site better than before :).

Visit our help center: http://support.app-developers.biz/

Keeping in with the tradition of WordPress

like other software, apps & plugins we decided to give our release a name. WordPress name their releases after great jazz men & women, OS X named releases after distinct California landmarks. So, after much debate we decided to name our releases after great boxers from around the world.

WordApp 1.16 will be referred to WordApp Lennox named after Lennox Lewis. Lennox Lewis is regarded by many as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, and also as the greatest British fighter of all time.

You can read more about Lennox here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lennox_Lewis

As a last note

Our special launch price “From only $2.99/mo” for premium. Is going up next week. The offer was meant to last only 3 months and we decided to carry it on for another month. But the time has come to make the increase.

So, don’t miss out on this special price.

Get your iOS & android app from only $2.99/mo.

http://community.app-developers.biz/wordapp-specials/

Please note that anyone subscribing before next Monday will not see an increase in Price.

To look forward to :

Here are some of the things we are planning on doing next week.

We are alway open to ideas please send them to support@app-developers.biz.
