Frequently Asked Questions
Why offer a mobile app? We're entering what has been referred to a "mobile first" world. Simply put, this means that more and more people are going to their mobile phone or tablet FIRST for news, personal communications, and social interactions. Tablet and smartphone sales are exploding and we will continue to see incremental gains in consumption on those devices. With your business app you will have a direct connection to your users right on their communication device of choice. Your app can facilitate communication, help build community, and give you an effective way to communicate your organization's mission.
Can we update the content on our app? Absolutely! You will have a dedicated log in to access our easy to use CMS. This allows you to make real time content changes on the fly without waiting for a full app update. Our point and click interface makes it simple for anyone to update the content on their app.
What not simply offer a mobile website? We think in today's society having a website that is mobile-compatible is a must as well. Apps simply offer a more feature rich environment with access to native phone apps such as the camera or GPS functions. If you would like assistance with getting your mobile website up to speed, we can help with that... just contact us!
Will the app work on iPhones? How about Android? We thought it was important that our apps work across the major platforms. They will work on the iPhone (iOS) platform as well as Android and HTML5. Our customers preferred a "one price covers all" pricing structure instead charging for each platform separately
Do I have to pay extra for certain features? No. All current features are included. We are also adding new features periodically, which you will have access to under your subscription. We utilize customer feedback as a guide to future functionality on our app platform.
How long will it take for our app to go live? Our custom development team will work with you regarding the main functions desired and content and will have a working demo within a few working days of finalizing your content needs.
