Who is Using AppPresser? Customer Examples.

Over the last number of weeks we’ve answered a bunch of questions that beginning customers have when they look at using AppPresser to build a mobile app with their WordPress site. If you missed those posts, here they are.

Today we’re going to show off what AppPresser can do by telling you about some of the cool apps that have been built on AppPresser.

Art of Manliness

Brett McKay writes about how to be a better man on his extremely popular site, the Art of Manliness. His podcast is #1 in the philosophy genre on iTunes, and boasts guests like Tim Ferris and Malcolm Gladwell.

AppPresser helped them connect their WordPress content to the app, and gave them key features that are not available on the website:

  • Much faster access to content
  • Caching of articles for offline reading
  • Podcast and video streaming
  • Personalized engagement with push notifications
  • Extra revenue with in app purchases

The app allows users to read articles, stream podcasts, view the website store, and more. A banner ad displays throughout unless users purchase a subscription for ad free content, for $1.99/month.

Here’s what Brett had to say:

The team at AppPresser was a dream to work with. They laid out exactly what I needed to do on my end and they took care of the rest. To top it off, it’s amazingly affordable compared to what we would have spent trying to develop this app from the ground up. If you’re an independent publisher looking to provider a better experience and connection with your readers, I highly recommend getting an app made with AppPresser. – Brett McKay, Art of Manliness

Kupernic Guide to Thailand

This tourism app features what to do, where to go, and detailed information about hot spots like Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, and more. It was built almost entirely using AppPresser’s offline custom HTML pages, so it does not require an internet connection. It boasts a very nice custom design and images that was painstakingly created by their team.

While those are some of our favorite apps, it’s by no means an exhaustive list. You can see more examples on our website.

Do you think you have an interesting app that should be featured in a future post? Leave a note in the comments and we may get back to you to feature your app.
