GoodBarber: become a reseller of mobile apps!

Written by Ghjuvan Simeoni  on  Friday 26 May 2023

If you think about starting your own mobile apps development agency, you're at the right place. The GoodBarber reseller program brings all the flexibility to make your projects grow, maintaining a good quality price rapport, with a fixed pricing to create unlimited apps. Our app builder is an efficient tool used by more and more agencies to create and sell apps for their customers .

The main goal is to sell your mobile services using our platform. In other words, the idea is not to resell the actual DIY Platform itself, but to resell apps that you make. The process usually goes something like this : clients will communicate their mobile needs to the reseller, the reseller works their magic in the backend, invites the client to review their work, and the deal is sealed.

When the client logs into the backend, the GoodBarber logos and references are eliminated and replaced by those of your agency , so coherence in branding can be maintained. Only your brand will be highlighted when the customer connects to the back office of his app. The white label option is included in the Reseller program.

In addition, we have resources available to help you sell apps and improve your knowledge of the GoodBarber platform. All of the available resources are listed here . In particular, we've created white label documents with a clean design and arguments that will help you sell apps. These documents are available as a word file and slides . You can download them and use them as you wish!

This video gives you an overview of the reseller dashboard and the possibilities offered by the white label option, included in the reseller subscription:

Should I invest in a PWA in 2023 ?

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Wednesday 19 April 2023

The last few years have been stellar for the growth of mobile phones. The mobile penetration in the world has been excellent, and the number of mobile internet subscribers reached 4.2 billion people globally (Source: GSMA ). With this tremendous growth, the demand for exceptional websites and mobile applications also skyrocketed. 

However, a large number of websites simply lack the features to provide a favorable user experience on a mobile device. The problems include a heavy website taking longer to load, unresponsive pages, unfriendly mobile navigation, and elements not being optimized for touch. In fact, users hate slow websites so much that over 53% of visits are abandoned if the website takes more than 3 seconds to load (Source: Google ).

Since conventional websites are still struggling to keep up with the changing industry, and native mobile application development is still considered an additional business cost by many, there exists a solution that provides all necessary features without requiring much development cost and time — Progressive Web App.

iOS 16.4 and Web Push Notifications

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Friday 14 April 2023

Since the very first iPhone, users have had the ability to create shortcuts to progressive web apps on their homescreens that resemble app icons. Progressive Web Apps, also known as PWAs, offer a unique way to access websites and their services without having to install a dedicated app. This means they don't take up a ton of storage space on your phone, making it easy to quickly visit your favorite sites that don't have an app. However, even though iOS has allowed users to make and use web apps for a while now, they're not perfect. indeed, until now, web apps were unable to receive notifications or display notification badges. This limitation is now over with the release of iOS and iPadOS 16.4.

Why update Google Play's Data safety section for your app?

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Thursday 2 March 2023

In 2021, Google announced additional details for the Data safety section on Google Play. Developers are now required to tell Google about their apps' privacy and security practices by completing a form in Play Console. This information will be shown on your app's Store Listing to help Google Play users understand how your app collects and shares user data before they download.
By 20 July 2022, all developers must declare how they collect and handle user data for the apps that they publish on Google Play and provide details about how they protect this data through security practices. 

By not following these guidelines, you will find yourself at risk of having your app removed from the Play Store.

Note: if you have subscribed to the GoodBarber Takes Care service, no worries. If you receive this type of email, simply open a ticket with our support team who will handle this for you
