The Apple iPhone is the world’s number one smart phone and more and more people are using it to access the Internet. Because of its popularity, many big websites have created their own iPhone app so their readers can receive a much better user experience. You can get the John Chow dot Com iPhone app here.
Normally, creating an iPhone app is an expensive affair that requires hiring an iPhone developer and paying fees to Apple. Now, thanks to a new free service call Bloapp, any blogger can convert their blogs into a native iPhone app in less than five minutes.
Advantages of Bloapp
Besides being 100% free, Bloapp removes the following issues when creating your own iPhone app:
- Signing up for Apple iOS developer program $99/year (review takes around 1 month)
- Hiring iOS developer for your app
- Hiring UI designer for your app
- Developing the app (2-3 months)
- Waiting for 1-2 weeks for apple to approve your app in iTunes
Creating an iPhone app for your blog takes less than five minutes. All you have to do is register for a free account, enter some information about your blog, upload a logo, decide on the color scheme and you’re done!
Once you’ve saved all your settings, your app is available instantly in the Apple Appstore via the bloapp app that serves as the reading platform for your app. Bloapp even generates a QR code for you to promote your application to your blog readers.
If you don’t have an iPhone app for your blog and don’t want to spend the money it takes to create an independent app, then Bloapp is a pretty awesome solution. An Android version is coming soon.
