BuddyPress Mobile Apps
Integrate BuddyPress into your app with AppCommunity.
AppCommunity allows AppPresser customers to create a social mobile app for their WordPress website similar to Instagram or Facebook. With AppCommunity, app users can post activity updates, photos, create friendships, send private messages, join groups, and more.
AppCommunity works with the BuddyPress plugin on your WordPress website, using the WP-API to sync your website with the app. This is monumental improvement over our existing BuddyPress integration (AppBuddy), it’s faster, cleaner, and more native.
You can make some pretty incredible apps with AppCommunity, or just add a single feature like private messaging to your existing apps.
AppCommunity has the main components of BuddyPress, including activity posting, friends, private messaging, members, profiles, groups, and more. Because it is API based, everything is incredibly smooth and fast.
Other great features include member profiles, search for all components, list filtering (all, friends, me, etc), comments, flagging (required for iOS apps), push notifications for messages and mentions, and more.
How it Works
AppCommunity integrates with any WordPress website that uses the BuddyPress plugin along with the AppPresser plugins. You can add the AppCommunity feature to any AppPresser app using our app customizer.
Your app communicates with your website using a custom BuddyPress REST API built for AppPresser apps. Anything that happens in the app is also reflected on the website, and vice-versa. Any users on your BuddyPress site can automatically log into the app and interact there.
It’s important to note that this does not work with custom plugins or BuddyPress customizations, it is separate from your website.
