10 reasons to create an app!

blog_write_no_author  Monday 23 December 2013

We have discussed many times the "benefits" that the creation of an app can bring to your brand , not only as a commercial brand, but also as a blog, a VIP, a radio, a club, etc.
 
Nowadays, native apps provide a better user experience and improve the way content is made available. The experience that a mobile application offers to users is much more rewarding than the one offered by a mobile web app.

How to plug social networks sharing features in your app

Written by Dumè Siacci  on  Wednesday 11 December 2013

Your GoodBarber app embeds social sharing features that will help your users to spread the word about your content. It means that almost everywhere in the app, your readers have access to a "share" button that will lead them the sharing screen.
 
You've probably already added such features to your website: you can easily understand that the more the process will be easy for your users to share your posts or videos, the more they'll share it :)
 
Since the GoodBarber 2.5 Salvador release, we've also integrated Facebook likes into the apps. It means that once your reader is logged in your app with his Facebook account, he'll just have to click on the "heart" button to like the post he's reading. It's not exactly the same action than a real Facebook share: a share will create a new post in the user's timeline, and a like will just appear in the Facebook ticker feed.
 
To be honnest, as a Facebook user, I prefer most of the times to just "like" a blog post than to actually "share" it to my friends: the two actions are totally different and apply in different situations.
 
GoodBarber also allows you to ask your users to login using Facebook or Twitter to post a comment, to bookmark a content, or to submit a picture/video/text from a Submit section. You should enable this feature if you don't want the comments on your website to be anonymous.

Towards applications always faster!

Written by Méryl Fiamma  on  Wednesday 27 November 2013

Since we launched GoodBarber, our goal has always been to offer applications with the best user experience. Beyond the interest that they can present for the final users, our approach — which is mainly shared by the industry — is to estimate the user experience of an application by the design and the fluidity (speed) of the interface.

Our second goal is to give our users the maximum flexibility in the management of their application with the diversity of the settings, and by modifying it easily.
It's the reason why we created a system of remote control for the applications updates. As fast as possible, this tool helps you updating all the base installed (design for example) on your app without an other submission to the stores.

The combination of these various constraints created a complex equation to be solved. Because the largest the flexibility of the settings is, the most complicated it is to keep the speed and  fluidity of the interface. And conversely, the more we look for speed, the less settings we can propose.

We dedicate a big part of our work to keep on improving GoodBarber and make it the sharpest DIY software to create beautiful app (especially through the GoodBarber 2.5 Salvador update). In parallel our team works on the optimisation of the application after every release.

Alex, the italien guy ;)

blog_write_no_author  Monday 18 November 2013

Hi everyone!
 
My name is Alex, I’m an iOS developper, from Genoa (Italy) and I started to work for GoodBarber in September after 2 months of internship.
 
My passion for the development began when I was in high school. My parents gave me my first iPhone, and since I could not change the background image, I began to do research how to customize my phone. In this way I discovered the jailbreak ... and the rest is history.
 
Some people know me as MPow in the jailbreak scene, I love to make jailbreak tweaks and apps for iOS.
 
Right now I'm studying IT at the University of Genova, and I live and work in Ajaccio, for GoodBarber of course.
