Your questions, answered.

Everything you need to know about our product and billing. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Visit our help center or contact us and we’ll be in touch.
Will I be able to configure the app on my own?
FAQ open/close button.

With our documentation and support, you will be able to configure the app on your own. We are there to help you out with any questions or guidance needed, and we can always just do it for you too!

Will my app work offline?
FAQ open/close button.

It will require an internet connection to operate.

What's your process like?
FAQ open/close button.

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 app and prepare it for submission and publishing on the App Store and Google Play.

Will I need coding knowledge?
FAQ open/close button.

No coding knowledge is required, unless you want to get more advanced integrating your website with the app. We provide full instructions for all you need to know – and our team is always on hand to help out if needed.

Will I have to update a dashboard whenever there’s new content?
FAQ open/close button.

No – the apps will update automatically whenever you publish anything new! There is little to add to your existing workflow, just keep doing what you're doing, easy like that!

Is this a fully custom app?
FAQ open/close button.

Yes – every app is completely unique and custom. For a start, News apps are built from your own unique site, completely branded for you, and customized according to your needs in terms of design and features! From your audience's perspective, they will be exactly like $100K+ custom apps.

Will managing the app add much to my team’s workflow?
FAQ open/close button.

As the News apps sync completely with your WordPress site, there isn't a lot of extra work for your team at all. The apps will update automatically with any new content or changes to your site, and the essential features of the apps can be managed through our WordPress plugin with zero coding required. Any major updates, maintenance or customization will be handled by our team of developers.

Does it only work with WordPress based sites?
FAQ open/close button.

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.


Can I integrate my favourite WordPress plugin, subscription tool, or third party software platform?
FAQ open/close button.

We are able to integrate any WordPress plugin or third party platform (as long as they provide an SDK). Most common WordPress publisher plugins will work out of the box, and we have prebuilt integrations with many of the major paywall providers and publisher platforms like Piano. As each project is custom, and we have a vast experience creating complex News apps, our developers will be able to bring your vision into reality.

What would require custom development?
FAQ open/close button.

Generally if your site has unusual or highly custom functionality, or relies on a third party platform that must be integrated with the apps, this will require custom development from our team. This is unnecessary for most of our customers, but we have experience building almost every imaginable kind of custom functionality in News apps so chances are we have a way to get you what you need!

Does it support RTL text?
FAQ open/close button.

Yes, News apps support RTL text and it is simple to set up.

How can I make money from my app?
FAQ open/close button.

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. The app is a native mobile app and has a separate design from your theme, but you can customize it and integrate design elements from your site design – our team can take care of all customization and achieve a completely unique design for your app.

Can I automate push notifications for new content?
FAQ open/close button.

Yes, you can configure the notifications to go out automatically as a response to specific events, including new content getting published. You can also send notifications manually whenever you wish. If your site doesn't run on WordPress, but rather uses any popular web stack, you'll be able to easily connect to Onesignal's REST API to trigger notifications for any event.

Is there a limit on the number of push notifications we send?
FAQ open/close button.

No, you can send as many as you like! You can integrate notifications with your website (we do that for you with our plugin if you're on WordPress) to send them automatically or send them manually. We rely on Onesignal to send notifications and you'll have full control of your own Onesignal account. They have excellent documentation if you want to integrate their API in your web application.

Will the app be able to have notifications on a per user level?
FAQ open/close button.

Your users will have a message center in which they can select the kind of notifications they wish to receive – this is great for making your push notifications more impactful and well received. If you're running on WordPress and use a plugin like BuddyPress, BuddyBoss or Peepso, we include a direct integration to trigger user-specific notifications (e.g. for new private messages). If you've built your own web app, you can easily identify individual users in Onesignal and trigger a push message with notifications for the single user.

Can I make my app subscriber only?
FAQ open/close button.

Yes you can! Several of our customers, like Foreign Policy, have subscriber only News apps. Others like Simple Flying offer app users the ability to remove ads from the apps for a monthly subscription fee.

Can it integrate a paywall for premium content?
FAQ open/close button.

Yes, we can integrate whatever paywall you currently use on your site.

What are your Full Service offerings?
FAQ open/close button.

We take a hands on approach to customer support. You’ll have a team of app experts by your side to ensure a successful project.

You'll use our platform to configure and customize your shiny new apps, then our team will take it from there. We take care of building, testing, compiling and submitting your mobile apps on all plans. Our team will dedicate several hours to reviewing your app, ensure it’s working smoothly, and guaranteeing approval by the App Stores.

Not remotely technical, or too busy? We also offer a full service package so there’s nothing at all to do on your end, we configure and build your app from start to finish and handle any advanced customization.

It doesn't end there though. On all our plans, we handle all ongoing updates and maintenance, so you don't need to worry about hiring developers down the road to fix expensive headaches.
