Highlight the content that attracts your readers

Written by Dumè Siacci  on  Monday 4 November 2013

Your app is designed to give access to your content in a fluid, efficient, mobile-friendly user interface. So, what you want to do first, when you put content into your app, is to sync the last published posts of your website.
We also already talked about adding filters to show categories or on predefined searches, in order to refine your app's content.
But, do you think you really know what really catches your readers attention? GoodBarber knows :)
A good way to enhance the user experience in your app is to push content that has already been proven to be popular content!
You've probably already noticed the Popular section in your GoodBarber backend. Its goal is exactly to display your most popular content.
We'll review together everything that you should know to use it efficiently.

Create a mobile app for ANY website

Written by Dumè Siacci  on  Monday 28 October 2013

We always talk about the dozen of connectors GoodBarber provides you to publish your content in your app. To this day, there are more than 30!

But now, you may be wondering what a connector is? You might also be disappointed to see that your favorite platform isn't in our connector list.  We do our best to offer a native experience, synching content from the most popular solutions in the market, but there are thousands!

Today, I'd like to introduce you to our custom connector. This connector makes GoodBarber compliant with all existing services to publish content. Of course, the downside is that it involves work on your part... but, by the end of this post, you'll see that it's not that difficult.

Let's discover together how to create an app for your Joomla, Drupal, ezPublish, Spip ... or any other solution, even one created from scratch.

How to install a domain name on my HTML5 web app?

Written by Jerome Granados  on  Wednesday 2 October 2013

That's one of the great features that comes with GoodBarber Salvador . Every GoodBarber account has now a great web app, in addition to the native app for iPhone and the native app for Android!

While the iPhone app is written in objective C, the Android app is written in java, this web app is written in HTML5. The web app runs on every browser, no matter the phone or the OS you use, that is to say that, now, your readers on Windows Phone or Blackberry can access your content from their mobile phone. 

The web app is truly fantastic. It has the same look and feel as the native app. Our engineers made a great job because it was a big challenge to obtain such a result. Why? Because contrary to many app builders who run HTML5 apps encapsulated in a native shell, we decided to make the opposite. We looked at the native apps generated by GoodBarber and we ask our engineers to reproduce the same in HTML5. When you know GoodBarber's passion for native apps and the elaborated features and UX we provide in our apps, you assess the challenge :)
