Friday Talk: Built-in CMS

Today we're going to talk about a new feature which comes from GoodBarber Salvador: our CMS.
GoodBarber Team, Monday 7 October 2013

Live+ Section

Hi everyone, we hope you had a great weekend! Let's start this week with one of the new features coming with the release of GoodBarber Salvador : Live+ Live+ is a new section inspired by our community. More and more radio stations use GoodBarber to create an app. With this new section, they can display the meta information when they stream their music. Among the informations displayed while you listen to music, you can find the artist name, the track cover, and some other useful details. Users have a direct link to buy a track or share what they are listening to.

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

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 :)

How to make a clear app with a lot of content?

Hello GoodBarbers, today I am in a solving problem mood, good news right? ;) I am surfing on Internet a lot, checking blogs, websites, news, social networks and everything I am interested on. I noticed that many blogs have lots of content giving a lot of information with more than 5 menus and subcategories. So, I thought it would be a good idea to write an article about it and let you know that it is not a problem for GoodBarber. You can have all this content in your app ;) The little story before was just a story to start the article, and because I am speaking writing a lot ;) More seriously, in this article we'll give you all tips and information you need to easily create categories and subcategories but also keep your application clear.

It's the weekend...Take a break and eat a cake!

This has been a busy week, full of news. I don’t know about you, GoodBarbers, but we got hungry :) It’s true that we have overcome the period of the bikini challenge , but the team won't abandon immediately the good and healthy "Mediterranean diet" I brought to the office when I arrived. We still got hungry and after a week of work, we all deserve a sweet treat, don’t you think?! Don't worry! You know that GoodBarber always thinks about everything ... We are infallible problem solvers! :) Just for you, our loyal readers, here is a really special recipe that I am going to give you: the CBVC aka Cacao Banana Vegan Cake

Apple keynote breakthrough: is your app being used during a bathroom break?

Hi everybody! Yesterday Apple revealed the new iPhone 5S and the new iPhone 5C. Like everyone we were super excited about this announcement. Apple's keynote are each time surprising and interesting. It's like to be at the theater when you're watching it ;) Anyway, we're pretty sure that you already know what are the big things coming out from Apple's keynote. What we like above all, it's the new M7 motion coprocessor. Do you want to know why?  Well, I'm sure everybody is pretty interested about the behavior of its users... But let's first check what is the impact of yesterday's announcement on GoodBarber.

Forget about advertising, create an app for your brand!

The Murdoch University, Australia, and the University of Indiana, USA, studied how mobile apps can have a positive impact on users. The study consisted in comparing the impact on sales, after the use or not of a branded app. It confirmed that using branded apps has a positive persuasive impact, it can increase the interest in the brand and in the brand’s products, and it can also produce a large and significant positive shift in involvement. Apps also seem to be an ideal medium for educating people about new products, or products they have yet to try. Do not forget the high level of user engagement, based on the enhanced user experience apps can offer.
