Alex, the italien guy ;)

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.

Highlight the content that attracts your readers

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

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.

Be cool and use automatic notifications

Have you ever wanted to have someone do some stuff for you? When you're too busy to do it? GoodBarber thought of you, with the automatic push notifications, you'll be serene ;) If you don’t have the time to send a notification after you wrote your last article on your blog, turn on automatic notifications to trigger one as soon as your article is online. Make automatic notifications recognizable by adding a prefix to your messages in order to give your users a clear information.

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 :)
