Have you had a GREAT idea for an app, but don’t know where to begin to make it?  What if there was a cloud-based platform (no software to download) that allowed you to create your very own mobile app for iPhone, Android, and Kindle without the need for complicated programming or coding experience?

With iCardinalApps you get to choose from tons of templates that are professionally designed for various different industries and types of mobile apps.  Now you can develop your dream app using an innovative platform and easy drag-and-drop  and WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) functionality.

How to Create an App

Try to match colors to your logo (if you are building it for your business) and find something that has images relating to your industry. You can choose from options for lawyers, sports, clothing shops and more.

Test Your Mobile App on Your Different Devices

Just because the mobile app looks good on your computer screen doesn’t mean it looks exactly the same on a different device.

Pull out your iPhone or Android and play around with the app before you send it out to customers. You may need to adjust a photo or you may even notice a typo while playing around with it. iCardinalApps has an amazing previewer that allows you to see your app exactly how it will function on your mobile device.

Integrate Your Social Media Pages for Increased Interaction

Create an App

It doesn’t matter what platform of social media you use, customers find it helpful if you have it on your app. Not only do they not have to open a bunch of different apps to go on their social media, but they can access certain deals and specials you only send out to social followers.

In short, it’s a great way to get people talking about your company, and it’s an excuse for them to open your app. You can even turn your current Facebook page into a mobile app.

Upload High Quality Photos and Test Them on Your Phone

Nothing says ametuer like a junky photo on your mobile app. If someone opens your app to a stretched out photo on your homescreen you can bet they will delete the app. Work your hardest to crop photos so they fit well, and get a professional photographer.  Remember there are also many, many websites that provide awesome FREE photos that you can use in your applicaiton.

PLAY AROUND WITH DIFFERENT FORMATS AND ASK FOR FEEDBACK

There’s no reason you can’t try two different templates, send them out to a beta testing group and ask for feedback. Mobile apps are like websites, where people respond to certain elements better than others. Learn from your users so you can see why some don’t turn into paying customers.  You can setup a test in the previewer app or you can send a URL to allow testing of the app.  You decide who you want to test your app and how you want it tested.

MAKE YOUR TEXT REFLECT YOUR ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE

Do you run a law firm or a clothing shop? Ask yourself whether or not you want to come off as silly or professional. Silly text is a great way to get people smiling about your company, but it’s a horrible idea for lawyers or accountants.

START SMALL AND MOVE UP FROM THERE

With iCardinalApps you can create a mobile app from a template, then as you improve your skills, change the template to make it unique for your customer.

UTILIZE THE SHOPPING CART FEATURE

Mobile commerce is the way of the future, so if you have a brand that sells any type of product you should be selling it on your mobile app. We have templates ready for you to add your products and start selling right out of your mobile app!

IF YOU SELL PRODUCTS, USE LOTS OF PICTURES

No one is going to buy from you if they can hardly tell what your product looks like. Give them as many high-quality photos as you can, and really wow them with the angles.

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF TESTIMONIALS AND REVIEWS

Most people make their purchasing decisions based on feedback from other customers, so make a separate page on your mobile app that just shows customer testimonials or reviews. Give people a reasons to buy, and maybe even think about getting customers to make video testimonials.
