We launched a news mobile app in a day!

Did you know that research from October 2019 showed that the global mobile population climbed to 4 billion different users?

There was a time not long ago that the thought of accessing the internet – seamlessly – through your cell phone seemed like a pipedream. Beyond that, the idea that it would be a more common method of internet usage than laptops and desktops would have seemed absurd.

But here we are. Mobile has seemingly taken over the world. And with that, the advent of the app has come. Of which, there seems to be one for every possible aspect of life imaginable. Whether it’s to do with health/wellness, cooking, accounting, news, content, and everything else, there’s an app for it.

Content publishers across the board are seeing an uptick of mobile users and recent analysis of our publishers see an 80:20 or higher ratio of mobile to desktop users.

Many publishers are now developing news mobile apps and experimenting with PWA to engage with their readers.

Quintype’s One-Day App Turnaround Story

Now, apps take eons of time to produce. In many cases, it might be due to the sheer scope and intricacy of the technology. Traditional CMS systems provide APIs, let alone mobile-first APIs to build out native mobile apps.

Though, much of the time, it’s due to a lack of resources, knowledge, and expertise. True to our spirit of making technology accessible to all publishers, we set out to build a mobile framework that turns a website on our CMS into a react native app.

Our mobile app framework works for all content-first publishers and all content and configurations of the mobile including the menu and home screen collections can be managed from the Bold CMS in real-time without having to go through the app store approval process and app upgrades.

How do we do it?

With the following functions and features:

First and foremost, there are pre-coded building blocks of layouts that make it a plug and play process.

Plus, you’ll always know what’s happening with your app with crashlytics, if there are any discrepancies. Such as when the program crashes. This feature keeps the process free-flowing because you can view all changes live with real-time updates on the app with push notifications, for instance.

Also, Quintype integrates analytics, Onesignal, and other third-party integrations, helping you capitalize on trends and improve upon any weaknesses.

Here are a few more attributes that set Quintype’s app-making process apart:

  • React native app

  • Offline mode

  • The ability to log in through social media and regular channels

  • Paywall options

  • Compatible with iOS and Android devices

  • State-of-the-art security, packages, and features

Most impressively, and intriguing to many businesses, is that we offer these services for a minimal upfront cost. From there, you’ll pay a monthly licensing fee that makes it easier to go mobile-first.

The Proof is in the Results

From February 18th to 19th, the Digital Media India event for 2020 will be happening. For this special occasion, we built an app with the program schedule and Awards list within 24 hours.

So, it’s not just big talk. We’ve been turning around apps with lightning quickness for some time now. This is now available as an add-on to all our CMS users. The process is perfected, and if your business wants to leverage this lucrative trend, contact us today!
