“We considered doing it in-house but then you have to worry about updates and paying thousands of dollars more if there's a major iOS update. It just made sense to go with them. Their track record speaks for itself”

Frequently Asked Questions
The process starts with a consultation with one of our app experts. We go over your vision for the apps, the must-have features, and create a roadmap for bringing them live. Then we begin with the development work. You'll be in touch with us throughout the process, and will have plenty of opportunities for input and testing the apps along the way. After a couple of weeks (for projects with less complex customization and features), we'll be ready to go through the final testing of your News app and prepare them for submission and publishing on the App Store and Google Play.
Many of the common publisher WordPress plugins will work straight out of the box, and we can integrate whatever third party plugins you need for your ideal app with custom development.

Any major updates, maintenance or customization will be handled by our team of developers.
News is built specifically for WordPress based news publishers and content sites. That said, if your News site is built on another type of CMS it may be possible to build you apps based on a custom instance of WordPress that acts as an intermediary between your main site and the apps. It is possible to get an excellent result with this method, speak to one of our team to find out more.
