App - Web Integration
Will my mobile app and web site
You have a web site. You want a
mobile app… but will they interact seamlessly?
Yes. Here’s why:
"Native-Hybrid" apps that have the
(1) functionality of native apps
(2) flexibility and affordability of
web apps (HTML).
Native-Hybrid Apps are full-featured
apps that "live" on your customers' mobile devices but are also
connected to your web site. They can send push notifications (like
mobile coupons, promotions and sales alerts). They can be searched and
downloaded from the App Stores, and they will stay on your customers'
iPhone, iPad or Android phones with your business's customized icon in
full view – keeping you top-of-mind.
Furthermore, they feature your
brand, your services, appointment scheduling, live chat, inventory,
street location, and more.
Your customers always have your
information on their phones, in their pockets, no further away than
their purses. To access you, they tap on your icon. There’s no need to
type a complicated URL into the Internet browser.
With Native-Hybrid apps, your
customers won’t navigate away from your business. Even when accessing a
web-based link, your customers STAY WITHIN your app, maintaining your
connection with them and vice versa.
We do this by pulling content from
your web site into your app. Not only does this provide seamless
continuity, but it also saves you the time and expense of weighing down
your app with superfluous native code.
Let's quickly define our terms:
1) Native Apps are heavily coded apps that live on your
2) Web Apps are essentially links to Internet
What follows is a discussion of how
WebCenterMobileApps took the best of both Native App and Web App
technologies and combined them into affordable Native-Hybrid Apps for
thousands of businesses, like yours.
I. Native-Hybrids are Much Fuller
Featured than Web Apps
Take a look at features that
Native-Hybrid Apps can offer your business and your customers: Push
Notifications, Near Me Alerts, One-on-One Customer Chat, Loyalty Cards,
Parking Markers, QR code scanners, VIN scanners, Calendar Sync, and
Web apps and simple
mobile web sites cannot offer any of these.
II. Native-Hybrid Apps Appear in the App
Both Native-Hybrid and fully native
apps appear in the App Stores. Web apps don't.
III. Native-Hybrid Apps are More
Affordable than Native Apps
Consider features like Inventory
Search, Mobile Payment (Mobile Commerce) and Company Videos. These are
important features that developers of purely native apps will often try
to encode these features into the backend of your app. THAT'S NOT
NECESSARY. In fact, it's an upsell than can prove harmful to your
mobile marketing success.
A fully native app will cost you a
lot more time and money. Native-Hybrid Apps, in contrast, utilize links
to pull important features from your already existing web site. People
using your app will have access to it all – and all within your app.
IV. Native-Hybrid Apps Demand Less
Download Time than Native Apps
By pulling certain already-existing
features from your already-existing web site, Native-Hybrid Apps not
only save you time and money but will save your customers time, as
well. Purely native apps – with lots of backend coding – take longer to
download, and this can seem frustrating (even ridiculous) to customers
who expect a Mobile App to bring them ease and convenience. In
contrast, Native-Hybrid Apps are fast, thus sparing you and your
customers time and giving them something usable – really fast.
V. Updating Native-Hybrid Apps is
Easier, Cheaper, and Faster
If you need to update a fully native
app, you'll probably need your developer's help, and that costs extra
money. It also demands twice the time because your web site will need
updating, too. Native-Hybrid Apps streamline the process. When you
update your web site, you automatically update your app. For example,
instead of updating your inventory on the web AND within your app, a
Native-Hybrid App pulls new inventory info automatically from your
You do half the work.
Work less, pay less with a
Native-Hybrid App. You'll still get a full suite of mobile app
features. In short, Native-Hybrid Apps give you and your customers the
best of both worlds.
