Get started with GoodBarber

What is GoodBarber?

GoodBarber is a "Do It Yourself" service that allows you  to create a Progressive Web App (PWA), a native Android app, and a native iOS app by yourself.
This DIY tool is made for people who don't know how to code, but who nevertheless want to create a beautiful PWA or Native app.

Starting from a graphic interface, called the "back office", you can build your own application step by step.

PWA works on any browser, both desktop, and mobile.
Native apps are specifically developed for iOS and Android. They can later be published on Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store.
