How does AppPresser work?

AppPresser allows you to build a hybrid app based on the Ionic Framework. You can add your WordPress content by using our theme and plugins. Your WordPress content is displayed inside an iframe in the app, and we use theme switching to display our theme.

You can also use API driven list pages that pull in only your site data, and do not use an iframe. This is a much faster way to display your content, but it has some drawbacks.

Add custom HTML pages that have nothing to do with WordPress, and work offline.

Is there a free trial?

No, but we offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Is it a one-time purchase?

Your subscription renews automatically each year. You can cancel at any time.

What happens if I cancel?

When your subscription expires, you will no longer have access to the myapppresser.com app dashboard. That means you can’t edit or change your existing apps, or create new ones. Your apps will still work, you just can’t make changes to them.

Push notifications will stop working, since those are included with your subscription.

What other costs are involved?

You must pay for your own Apple and Google developer accounts which are $99 and $25 respectively. There are no other costs to deploy your app.

Can I use a custom WordPress theme for my app?

You must use our AP3 Ion Theme for the app, you can customize it via a child theme. This does not affect your current WordPress theme, you may still use any theme for your normal website.

Many of our integrations do not use any theme at all because they are only pulling API data from your site. Some WordPress pages that show your site use our AP3 Ion Theme.

If you have functionality in your website theme that you need in the app, such as shortcodes or custom post types, you must move that code to a plugin for it to work with AppPresser.

Will my custom plugins work in the app?

Many plugins, such as LearnDash, Gravity Forms, WooCommerce, BuddyPress, membership plugins, and others work fine in apps out of the box. Others have conflicts, so we do not officially support any plugins except those named on our website.

Can I use a 3rd party service in the app?

We do not officially support any 3rd party services other than those listed on our website.

Does the app have any AppPresser branding?
No. The app is not branded by AppPresser, and it resides in your own Apple and Google Play account, so it only has your name on it.

How does app store submission work?

App store submission can be a little tricky, but we have documentation to help. You can also pay us to do it, or purchase a plan that has app store submission included.

Do you guarantee that my app will be accepted?

We cannot guarantee that your app will be accepted because there are too many elements that we do not have control over, such as your app’s content and features.  It is up to you to ensure you meet all the guidelines both Apple and Google require are met.

We do, however, have full confidence that the app will not be rejected simply because it was built with AppPresser.

Can I download the source code?

Yes, you can download your app’s compiled source code, as well as the .ipa and .apk app store files.
