How to convert WordPress sites into mobile apps with just a few clicks
Mobile app builder, Worona, has launched a new, online platform that lets users build mobile apps with WordPress in a very easy way.
The free platform offers a single dashboard where WordPress users can convert their sites into mobile apps with just a few clicks. No coding or technical skills are required. Customizable settings allow them to easily control the look and feel of their apps and see all changes in real time. The app submission to the stores, meanwhile, has been simplified by integrating Worona’s platform with PhoneGap Build, an open-source development framework.
For those who do not want to handle the publishing process, Worona still offers an affordable premium service to submit your apps to the stores. You can learn more about Worona Publish Service here.
Besides the app builder, Worona 1.0 aims to merge other mobile-related solutions such as Progressive Web Apps, Google AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) and Facebook Instant Articles. According to its founders, these integrations are on the roadmap coming later this year.
CEO and Founder Pablo Postigo says:
Worona 1.0 is not intended to be used just for creating mobile apps, we want to merge all the mobile channels into a single platform. At this point, it really doesn’t matter what you do, if your website does not perform well on mobile, you are losing more business and opportunities for growth than you could possibly know. Today, people have high expectations for mobile experiences.
WordPress is the most popular online publishing platform, powering now more than 26% of the Internet. Beyond the responsive theme, there are no other improvements that WordPress makes to promote mobile-friendly experiences.
That’s where Worona enters the picture. “Simply having a responsive design is not enough, and making your website ready for mobile can be time-consuming, frustrating and expensive. We believe it doesn’t have to be that way”, adds CTO and Founder Luis Herranz.
Worona is an open source initiative that wants to bring the best WordPress mobile experience to its audience. It is the flexible, affordable option for every WordPress user looking to expand and optimize its mobile presence.
