    If not for me, perhaps I can “sit in on” / “apprentice” for a build for one of my clients? Or side-projects? Maybe? 🙂



    • MF Simchock on December 17, 2014 at 12:25 pm

      fyi – I would offer it as a free-bee if it were a client. I’m interested in the learning, not the $. I can make the $ if I learn to fish. This is a change to learn a bit about fishin’.



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      Hey Mark, we’ll actually be posting the process here on the blog, and we’ll definitely be talking about how you can make apps for your clients 🙂

    I’ve been working on building an app for this site for quite some time now. I’ve run into multiple issue with it and as I result started taking online courses for coding in my spare time. But I my current rate of learning the language I will be able to get the app to say “Hello World” sometime around the year 2020. It’s a personal goal to have vision for an app and then have that app in the App Store. Eloquentgrammarsociety.com



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      Hey Larry, thanks for posting this, Reactor may be a good solution for you since you don’t have to code to create an app.

    We are an AppPresser agency, WordPress/WooThemes/WooCommerce expert who is commited to Mobile Apps:
    http://architectforbusiness.com/mobile-apps/
    We developed a niche eCommerce site for beautiful, traditonal handcrafts which should translate well into a Reactor Mobile App showcase:
    cottagecrafted.com
    We are grateful for your consideration. Steve Walsh – Architect for Business



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:55 pm

      Hey Steve, the cottage crafted site would be great for a Reactor app. Even though you didn’t win, I’d be happy to help you get setup if you need it. Let me know!



  4. Richard H. on December 17, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    We do insulation installation and removal, and we would love a simple app to help our crew communicate with each customer before and after the job with push notifications (ie., confirm your appointment, bid summary, we’re running late, please authorize final payment, etc.) Also, if it could allow us to take before/after pics of our work to share with the customer and social media, is that possible?



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:56 pm

      Hey Richard, that sounds like a pretty custom app, and it would require some special development. If you’re interested in a quote, shoot me an email: scott at apppresser.com. Thanks!



  5. Yves Courtois on December 17, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    I am personal developer and I would to create a site around sport trainning. for that I think that a site under mobile phone must be done. Your software are very interesting to achieve my goal. It will be a pleasure to try it !!! Thanks Yves



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:57 pm

      Thanks for the comment Yves, let us know if we can do anything to help you with your app.

    Really looking forward to using Reactor!



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 4:57 pm

      Hi Steve, you have been chosen for a free app, congratulations!



  7. Wizlo on December 18, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    Hi, as Reactor is not really compatible with my WooCommerce site (i have already contacted you, variable products). I’ll be glad to see what you can do with one of my other website here.
    http://coreplayer.tv/



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:58 pm

      Hi variable products work with Reactor, but we are working on a more native add to cart process. It will hopefully be ready in the next month or two. Thanks!



  8. Jeff See on December 18, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    As a high-poverty school district, I would use a mobile app to promote our district and make it easier for our parents to engage with our schools and staff. I want to break down the brick and mortar walls and allow us to reach out and share our student’s successes while allowing parents and community members to support the transformation of our district.



    • Scott Bolinger on December 19, 2014 at 2:01 pm

      Hey Jeff, Reactor only works with WordPress websites, do you have a WordPress site?



  9. Katie - Wellness Mama on December 22, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I have a WordPress website: http://wellnessmama.com/ with the goal of helping other moms create healthier lives for their children and families. I publish recipes, natural living ideas, and homemade beauty recipes and more. I already have a rough app built on a platform (bizapps) but it is outdated and not very user friendly. My readers (mostly moms on the go) are always using their phones and I’d love to provide them a user-friendly app so they could easily find recipes and DIY projects on the go.



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 3:59 pm

      Hi Katie, I think your site looks great and it would very easily translate to Reactor. Although you didn’t win a free account, I’d be happy to help you get setup on Reactor. Email me: scott at apppresser.com. Thanks!



  10. Michael A Kukuchka (@MAKDesignLab) on December 22, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    We have a creative design business at makphotography.net, and know that a dedicated iPhone app would reach a larger potential customer base, since 6 out of the 7 billion people on this planet are on mobile devices over computers or even tablets. We are grateful for your consideration. -Michael



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 4:00 pm

      Hey Michael, thanks for the comment! Unfortunately you didn’t win but if you are interested in trying out Reactor for your app let me know. Thanks!



  11. Sébastien on December 23, 2014 at 11:18 am

    Hi the team !

    Let’s try it ! I’m the founder or a French startup, which help NGO to raise money. By using our labeled game, the player wins points which can be used to crowdfund a campaign from NGO, to help them to realize an action.

    Anybody can “change the world by Geeking” ! 😉

    I’m not sure that you’ll be able to do it, as I use some plugin to manage the points system (instead of money).

    We need an app to allow the player to check his amount of points, and use it thanks to woocommerce.

    Here is the website : http://www.greenapplab.com
    And you can see the French NGO campaign here : http://www.greenapplab.com/collectes/

    Don’t hesitate if you want some info about anything !

    Thanks !
    Sébastien from Paris 😉

    Hi There,

    My name is Jeasy and we run an ecommerce website built with woo commerce called Imperial Swords http://www.Imperialswords.com specialising in fully functional battle ready swords catering to collectors, museums, HEMA practitioners etc.

    We would love to have an app built for our store but the cost involved in getting one dine keeps stopping us. Perhaps if we are picked our dream might come true.

    Kind regards,

    Jeasy

    We’re a Christian charity in New Zealand that sends people to all corners of the world to help with a whole range of social, environmental, economic and spiritual issues.

    Why do we deserve this? Firstly, we’re a non-profit doing some great work. But from your point of view, I’m one of NZs biggest advocates for Appresser. I just love what you’ve done (and continue to do).

      Hey Jon, unfortunately you didn’t win, but that sounds like a great site. Keep up the good work!



  21. Jonathan Loutzenhiser on December 26, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    Hello,
    We are Spread the Word Outreach, a non profit charity organization. Our ministry is a new online based website that offers all other ministries or non-profits the opportunity to list their their needs to the public. The public than for example types in “guitar” or other items that they have laying around the house and than a list of every ministry that is in need of their item is populated. It is a free service offered to all ministries and the public. We have just completed our website and have some incredible support behind the future of this cause. However, we are in desperate need of an app and have the ability to provide all the requested requirements for the qualification of this offer. Please check out our fully developed website and ministry at https://stwoutreach.com Our ministry concept is new, yet our team’s dedication has been proven over the past five years of this development and launch stage! There is so much more that we offer, if you would like to learn more please feel free to contact us directly via our website’s contact page. An opportunity like this would truly be a huge asset for this cause!

    Thank you so much for considering our outreach, 🙂

  25. Nicole Vlug on December 27, 2014 at 12:09 am

    I am a photographer and the most useful thing to have for my photography students that I teach would be a reference guide on their phone – so when they are out and about with their camera they can refer to guides and cheat sheets for their camera settings for particular situations. ( things like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal lengths, etc are hard to remember when you are getting started in photography). They could also head on over to the full online photography course they would have purchased and maybe even my online gallery for inspiration (and possible further sales?) I love the look of AppPresser – I can’t wait to have an app up and running!

    Thanks for this opportunity

  27. Timothy Sullivan on December 27, 2014 at 2:36 am

    HI! I run a website and full time business dedicated to premium Japanese sake called UrbanSake.com. I’m a dedicated sake sommelier and my great passion is educating and empowering new sake fans. My website features a sake events calendar, a sake 101 education section, tasting notes, blog and a woocommerce-driven sake directory of 575+ sakes. I’ve always wanted an app for my business, and, as I love wordpress integrated solutions, I have been following the rise of AppPresser and more recently Reactor with great interest, but I simply didn’t feel confident enough to do it all on my own. Getting a free account on Reactor and a free app build from your team would be simply amazing and help me achieve my long held dream of getting a high quality, feature rich sake app out there in the marketplace – not to mention reaching a whole new community of people by showing them what Reactor can do. I hope you’ll consider Urban Sake for your free mobile app! Thanks and Kanpai! (Cheers!)

  28. Matthew Bennett on December 27, 2014 at 6:59 am

    Hi,

    The Spain Report is a 21st-Century foreign correspondence start up. We monitor hundreds of Spanish news stories each week and does its own original, independent, in-country reporting to provide readers with timely information and editorial analysis of the most important major, breaking and trending news from Spain, in English, wherever they are in the world. The web version works with a leaky paywall (X free articles + you choose your own subscription price).

    I try to make the most of every new tech opportunity that is relevant for readers. News reading is going mobile (40–45% of readers do so on a mobile or tablet). Breaking news is a big part of what makes this special, and readers say they really appreciate being able to get original reporting in English for major stories (Santiago train crash, abdication of King, Ebola, etc) as they are unfolding. So doing properly edited breaking news and updates via a mobile app, with push notifications, is absolutely right for our readers. They would really appreciate it.

    I think it would make a great example project for Reactor too, given the feature fit.

    Kindest regards,



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 4:52 pm

      Hey Matthew, that sounds like a great app. Magazine style apps work great on Reactor, you should check out the Torque Magazine app as an example. Unfortunately you didn’t win, but I’d be happy to help you get setup on Reactor. Thanks!



  29. Richard Taubin on December 27, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    Hello and thank you for the opportunity!

    We are Friends Coastal Restaurant in Madisonville, Louisiana. We lost our restaurant due to Hurricane Isaac, which was over two years ago, and are looking to re-open in the spring of 2015. We are building a new building and starting all over.

    I am a minority partner in the business and handle the website, marketing and technology for the restaurant. It would be very helpful to have an application for our restaurant for people to buy merchandise, book events, make reservations, order online and view our menu and images. I know that not all of these feature may be accomplished with existing functions in Reactor, but it would be a great start. As the largest tax producing businesses, our restaurant will help revitalize a community that was devastated by Hurricane Isaac.

    I started a website consulting, design and hosting company (zillamite.com) over 4 years ago and had to rely on it solely for income while our restaurant has been closed. We are 100% WordPress shop and have built many sites and e-commerce solutions for many local businesses.

    We would sincerely appreciate your support to help us get back on our feet by helping us build an app for our restaurant.

    Best

    I have a responsive wordpress site which is to help people find places to eat especially when out and about. Ever been out and needed to find somewhere to eat and don’t know where or if it is going to be any good. Location services is very important with in phone and tablet maps to locate and show a radius of 2 miles from location. Allow to choose places listed based on star ratings, get info about place and if choose then get voice guidance to premises from wherever their location is. Site does this at mo except voice guidance to premises, can only get this from an app.
    Also with the events and promotions push to mobiles and tablets will very much help with the earning part of my site, which is earnings based on very competitive pricing for the advertising.

    http://www.placestoeatinkent.co.uk

    So excited about the chance to get this from the most exiting thing I have seen since learning about wordpress.

    Kirk Twyman



    • Scott Bolinger on December 29, 2014 at 4:55 pm

      Hey Kirk, this sounds like a cool app. You’d need some custom development for the location services, we don’t currently have a product that does that. Unfortunately you didn’t win, but let us know if you’d like to use our app development services. Thanks!
