Your mobile app can be the point of sale for your store, allowing you to sell your products to people around the globe.

Charge for Subscriptions

Do you have a popular blog or YouTube channel? What about a unique subscription product? Offering recurring subscriptions through a mobile app gives your customers a convenient way to pay.

Offer In-app Purchases

Talk to YOUR CUSTOMERS INSTANTLY

The Old Way

Email used to be the best way to reach your audience. You'd just select your audience, write your email, press send, and hope it didn't get caught by spam filters. Or sat ignored in a full inbox. Or didn't get delivered at all.

The New Way

Push notifications let you talk to your customers instantly, where they're already spending their time - on their mobile devices.

We've spent a lot of time refining our push notification system. Here's how you can use push notifications to talk to people using your app.

More details about push notifications

Schedule Push Notifications in Advance

Send the right message at the right time - you can send push notifications immediately, or schedule them for a future time.

Take Your Users to a Specific Screen in Your App

Got a big announcement? Make sure your users see the news by sending them to any screen in your app when they open your push notification.

Send Location Based Messages

Set up geofences or mobile beacons to send location-based messages - like when someone comes into your restaurant, or when they pass by a specific section in your retail store.

Send Daily Offers

Push notifications give you a perfect way to promote daily offers. Keep your customers up to date on your latest deals and specials.

Send a Notification in Seconds

Our push tool is simple and easy to use. Encourage action in your app by sending push notifications in seconds. Schedule notifications, send location based messages, take your users to a specific screen and send daily offers.

build relationships with your customers

The Old Way

The days of bulky, complicated CRM tools or tracking your customers in an Excel file are long behind us.

The New Way

Offering user login gives you the power to protect any part of your app behind a login screen.

For example, your app could provide certain pages and content to all users while using a login screen to keep premium content separate for paying users.

Or you could require every user to sign up and login before using your app. App Press gives you the flexibility to add user login in the way that makes sense for your business.

Provide Premium Content

Requiring users to sign up and login allows you to protect any part of your app. This is a great way to offer premium content to your paying customers.

Keep Your Customers' Information Secure

User login gives you the power to store and protect sensitive customer information, like home address, transaction history, and personal details.

Offer a Custom Experience to Your Users

Store user information to provide a custom app experience for your users, based on their behavior, preferences, and profile information.

Track Your Best Customers

Allowing your users to login and create profiles gives you insight into which customers are most engaged with your business.

Creating a new mobile app

Unlike other mobile development tools, App Press doesn't rely on templates to design apps. We've focused on customization, and our app creator gives you the freedom to create the perfect app for your business.

However, we do provide several starter apps. These are example apps that come with prebuilt layouts, default assets, and navigation to give you a starting point for building your own app.
