New! HUGE LearnDash App Improvements

LearnDash App Features

We completely rewrote our LearnDash integration from scratch to make your courses faster, smoother, and more immersive for your students. It’s now in beta and ready for you to test in your own apps.

The main focus was performance, and it is a huge improvement. Moving away from iFrames to an API based infrastructure allows courses to be viewed much faster, and makes navigation smoother and more native. Your students will love it.

  • Faster and more immersive
  • All core LearnDash features like progress, mark complete, lessons, topics, quizzes
  • Login and registration, enrollment in free courses
  • In App Purchases available (limited)
  • API based for speed

An important thing to note is that because this is all API based, your app will not pull in any customizations or 3rd party plugin functionality from your site. You can customize a little bit with CSS and template hooks.

Try it Out


The Learn AppPresser app has been updated so you can try out all the new stuff on your device.

Video Demo

This video includes LearnDash, BuddyPress, blog posts, and in app purchase demos.

Technical Details

Our old LearnDash integration relied heavily on iFrames, which wasn’t the most native experience. Now LearnDash courses are entirely API based (with the exception of quizzes).

We are using a mixture of the LearnDash REST API and our own custom API. Using the API means big performance increases, but it is a trade-off with less customization. Because the templates are all on the app side now, it’s not as easy to customize or add 3rd party plugin functionality. We think this trade-off is worth it.

    This looks terrific and speed is always important to keep the users happy.
    However we make extensive use of the premium addon plugins for Learndash from Uncanny Owl – Learndash groups, design, toolkit pro etc.
    Any chance of adding support for them on the roadmap?

    In accordance with your Twitter offer our Learndash courses are part of our community and training at our site:

      Thanks Dale! We would be happy to add some of those features to our roadmap if lots of people request them. Otherwise we are also happy to build something custom for you.

    Would love to try this for education.

    I would like to give this a go again. Must admit I tried your services last year but did not come through with the project. Was a bit harder than announced so I hope the new updates have meade things a bit easier.

      http://www.gravid.dk is the site 👍

        Hi Michael, you won a year free on AppPresser! We will contact you to get setup, congratulations!

    Hi, folks!
    It seems a great opportunity to expand the reach of my Feng Shui courses. I would love to try it out (with the help of my website developer).
    I’ve been thinking about using apps for online courses, but it always sounded so complicated. Your app seems to make it really simple.
    This is my website:
    I’m from Brazil and it’s in Portuguese.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Is the login via Google, Facebook integrated?

    • Scott Bolinger on February 22, 2021 at 7:45 am

      No, it is a Google login only. Anyone with a Google account can use it.
