More features on the way!


What’s included?

The AppBuddy extension. It does not include image posting, push notifications, the AppTheme/IonTheme, or any other features. If you do not already own the AppTheme/IonTheme or AppCamera, please purchase the AppBuddy Bundle instead.

Will my custom BuddyPress plugin work in AppBuddy?

We do not officially support any BuddyPress plugins. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t work. If you would like to use a plugin you are welcome to, but we will not support it or guarantee that it will work in your mobile app.

Can I use a custom theme?

AppBuddy only works with the AppTheme/IonTheme. You can customize this theme using a child theme, but we do not support custom themes.


An existing WordPress site with BuddyPress installed and activated, along with the AppPresser core plugin and AppTheme/IonTheme. The AppCamera is required for image posting.

AppBuddy works best with a bundle, since it needs other extensions to work properly. Check out the Agency Bundle or the Agency Plus Bundle
