One of the important, new aspects of GoodBarber 4.5 concerns a menu that everyone is a fan of: the Global Style Menu.

GoodBarber receives a major update today. GoodBarber 4.5 is the most advanced version we have ever created. It has been designed to make you more productive, and its speed performance has been increased.
"Multi-platform" users are a majority in almost every country of the world (source: comScore MMX Multi-Platform, Dec 2017) The challenge to offer a perfect UX, both on mobile and desktop, has never been so important. Your users are expecting to find you everywhere, in the Stores, on the Web, from their smartphone, their tablet and their computer.
This multi-channel presence is not a luxury, but a necessity. However, few have the expertise, the human, technical and financial resources to offer their users an experience that rivals the one proposed by big names on the web.
As an App Builder pioneer, GoodBarber has always given you the opportunity to be at the forefront, well before anyone else. In 2011, it was with the creation of native apps, only offered at that time by a small niche of developers; and since 2017, it's with the creation of Progressive Web Apps, a concept that feels like the renewal of the web and the future of apps.
4.5 is a version that consolidates the versatility of GoodBarber to create the apps of the future. Every time, GoodBarber faces a double challenge. Design the tool that creates cross-platform apps and imagine the interface that lets you take advantage of the power of this tool as intuitively as possible.

As you know, we're in an avant-garde position with regards to Progressive Web Apps, as we were the first app builder to offer the possibility to create them. GoodBarber allows you to make Progressive Web Apps and native apps simultaneously, giving you everything you need to conquer the web and mobile world. With just one third of the time and a twentieth of the cost of classic development required, you have the opportunity to attract new visitors on any device thanks to PWA's, and to retain your users thanks to the strong levels of engagement native apps offer.
GoodBarber version 4.5 takes you to the next level in terms of the back office, by boosting your productivity, as well as apps that are more performant than ever.

You're well aware of the potential of Progressive Web Apps, the web applications that offer new functionalities in browsers that bring an experience comparable to that of native apps.
Progressive Web Apps have been on the rise since last year, but their main setback has been the fact that certain key features weren't supported on iOS devices.

Today we're presenting a new option available in the Calendar section.
As usual, we've analyzed the way you use GoodBarber, and for event related apps, we've noticed that a lot of you have projects that involve multiple time slots within the same day. We've therefore decided to offer a new option, which should be much more intuitive for your users.

At GoodBarber, design is a sacred thing. We're obsessed with giving you the freedom to customize many settings so you can end up with a unique app. No other App Builder takes it this far as far as design options go, but with offering a multitude of options comes the fact that interfaces can start to get messy, bringing us to our next challenge which was to find a simple way for the app customization process to be carried out.
Global Style is the solution. It is the menu where you can define the overall design of your app from.

With over half of all worldwide internet traffic coming from mobile devices, there’s no doubt about the fact that mobile is king.
However, user behavior seems to be going more towards being fed up with installing applications. Despite the general craze over native applications’ UX, only about a third of smartphone owners download apps each month.
Progressive Web Apps are here to tackle this paradox by solving the application-download burnout issue. The proof is in the 4 points to come.

In June, 2017, Apple introduced the 4.2.6 rule into the App Store guidelines. This rule address those using app builders such as GoodBarber.
This new rule was followed by a lot of questions and lack of understanding, from users of app builders as well as app builders themselves. On December 20, 2017, Apple updated the wording of the 4.2.6 rule to provide some clarification.
