Apps have become the must-have tech accessory for many people, and a core part of forward-looking business marketing plans. However, not many people or small businesses have the know-how or means to create highly functional and individualized apps that are ready to be published in popular app stores.
Appsbar was designed to fill the gap between over-simplified apps and costly, professionally-produced apps. It presents myriad personalization opportunities with a unique interface that guides creators through the entire process – from creation, to editing, to publication - with visual and textual clues at each step. As creators build apps page by page, each app becomes more personalized through limitless combinations of background colors and fonts and the ability to upload images and videos from personal libraries.
Appsbar was introduced in 2011 as the first cost-free way for anyone, at any skill level and with a limited budget, to make rich, personalized apps that reflect their own personality, business or event with direct access to app stores. Appsbar meets the demand for a turn-key solution for creating and publishing apps, while eliminating the common hassles faced by even experienced app developers, including how to develop for multiple devices and platforms, how to beat long-wait periods for publication, and how to stop rejections from app stores.
Smartphones and tablet devices are eclipsing PCs as the way people connect with friends and find businesses, entertainment and events. As mobile devices grow more widespread, notable personalities are using apps to connect with fans, and businesses are discovering new customer bases to engage. Appsbar is the tool to make the apps that make our lives easier.
Like Web sites and blogs in the 1990s, and microblogging through the past decade, apps are now an essential part of smart business marketing. Apps have emerged as a way for any business to engage their customers beyond the corporate Website or blog. Until Appsbar, businesses had to rely on an entire internal design and software team or hire a costly agency for the design, creation, customization and publication of apps – which is unrealistic for smaller businesses with tight budgets. Now, businesses large or small can create unique apps with the same functionality and crisp features of specialty apps.
