Umbraco is a free, open-source content management system built on Microsoft’s .NET framework.
As one of the most deployed content management systems in the microsoft stack, Umbraco powers over half a million websites for startups, publishers and global brands like Heinz, Vogue, Carlsberg and Sony.
It’s easy to learn and use, and comes with all the functionality needed for a modern site or web app.
The platform is stable and proven, so it’s a favorite among many developers and designers.
What if you’ve already built a site or web app with Umbraco, seen some great results, and are looking for avenues to expand?
We suggest improving your mobile strategy. What’s the best way to do that?
Building an Umbraco mobile app
Building a native mobile app is a great way to increase traffic, retention and engagement.
It will give your users access to your brand in the format they really want, evidenced by the fact that consumers spend seven hours in apps for every one hour in a mobile browser.
They also offer you, as a business owner, a much more effective channel to reach your customers thanks to push notifications - that can be sent out automatically or manually as needed.
What’s the best way to get your app handled?
There are a few different options. If you want to build it yourself you’ll need to be fairly comfortable with APIs and have some development skill. Check out this video for more information about this route.
Another more convenient option is to use Slide.
We take your existing site or web app and convert it into an app. All the hard work is taken care of, from initial design to publishing (which will happen in just a few days!)
If it works well on mobile right now - it’ll work great as an app. We can make any customizations you need, and get your Umbraco efforts onto the App Stores quickly and with minimal hassle.
