Today, we are launching GoodBarber Shopping App, the premier App Builder 100% dedicated to the creation of eCommerce apps. Mobile sales statistics are setting new records every year.. When you shop, it's from your smartphone. For those born with the Internet, this is the norm. For others, it's amazing.. except when the user experience is not up to par. We have all had disappointing shopping experiences on our mobile phones: the need to login again, poor display, long and tedious checkout process, a lot of data to enter on a small keyboard, etc. When the user experience is so discouraging, we give up and head for a merchant who allows us to shop easily. GoodBarber Shopping App was born from our desire to equip all e-merchants with the technology that makes mobile shopping fun and powerful.
With your app published on the Store (App Store and the Play Store), you are one step closer to your goal. However, it’s not the time to stop working. You must now focus on promoting your app to boost your audience. In order for your app to be successful, you need to think of all the details from the day you start creating it (or updating it). In this article we will go over the best practices to increase your downloads.
As you know, we have made it a point to improve GoodBarber day after day, and your suggestions are a great source of inspiration for us. This month we have developed two novelties that you have been many to plebiscite: A new confirmation screen for the Form section : You now have the option to display to your users a summary page of their answers before the final submission of the form. New types of links for the Contact section : you can now add links towards Instagram, WhatsApp and Skype in your Contact section You can find below a summary of the developments and updates made during July, 2019
You asked us, and now it's done : links towards Instagram, WhatsApp and Skype are now available in your Contact section. To set them up, go to Content> Sections> Contact> Edit content. Choose the type of link you want to add from the drop-down menu and enter the requested information. User side behavior will differ depending on the type of link chosen: Instagram: the user is redirected to the web version of Instagram, on the page you have entered, he will then have the choice to stay on the web version, or to open the page in the app, if the latter is installed. WhatsApp: If the user owns the WhatsApp app, a pop up will ask permission to open the chat page in the WhatsApp app. Skype: A pop-up will ask for permission to open the Skype app. If the user does not have it, he will be invited to download it.
The Form section can have multiple uses in your app. Polls, orders, surveys, customer feedback etc... The potential for user engagement is enormous. As you know, we strive to constantly develop our features, especially when they come from your suggestions. Today we present a new feature for this section, which you have been many to plebiscite: a new confirmation screen before sending the form.

Mobile has trained all of us to expect to get what we want, when we want. The impact of this new way of thinking can even be seen in the way we interact with mobile apps. With every extra second your app takes to load, your conversion rates drops by 7%. Making keeping your app running fast a must. For example, when Amazon decreased their loading time by 100-millisecond, their revenue increase by 1%! And with so many options available in the Stores today, users patience is shrinking. You’ll read here and there that the ideal loading time for an app is 2 seconds. That’s a good average indeed. We will see in this blog post how to stay close or below this threshold. We’ve asked one of our lead developers, Sergio, for some advice on how to optimize the speed of your GoodBarber app. Here are his 3 best practice tips:

Did you know that a 3 seconds delay causes you to lose half of your users? A figure to reflect upon, especially when every other second you lose another 7% of your users. During the crucial time it takes your app to open you could lose the attention of your users. Even though your GoodBarber app or PWA is build to launch quickly, you shouldn't overlook the importance of this General Design section : the Splashscreen. It allows you to display an image, message or logo while your app is launching therefore catching the eye of your users and improving your chances to keep them interested until your content is displayed. As you can see it is essential to take the time to perfect your Splash screen, its content as much as its design. If the content falls onto your creativity, we are putting our best features forward to help you with the design. Nowadays with so many different devices on the market, it is difficult to imagine and picture how your Splash screen will adapt to various screen sizes. We are now proposing different options to preview your splashscreen.
