We were migrating from DNN and in-house developed apps to WordPress and needed native apps fast to time with our aggressive launch schedule. MobiLoud delivered. We have iOS and Android apps, built over the holidays, and live in under two months for a fraction of what we had been spending on in-house developers.

I am using Mobiloud to turn my Woocommerce site into an app, I have memberships, subscriptions, am using Cartflows and various plugins, this integrates with everything seamlessly. I did purchase the done for you service, and it was so simple with my app launching in weeks. I had tried Buddyboss app services (also paid for done for you) and had to cancel the project due to difficulty. If you want to turn your WordPress or Woocommerce site into an app with ease I highly recommend this platform!

MobiLoud Canvas is making it easy and doing a great job, both on iOS and Android, to create individualized mobile solutions. Design improvements to your existing WordPress template are applied immediately to the existing app. I have been nothing but impressed with MobiLoud compared to the other options and nothing but happy with their service and customer care!

I’ve been tracking MobiLoud for a while and I’m impressed with their “News” product for bloggers. This solution (“Canvas”) should prove popular with WordPress developers wanting to build a mobile app for their clients.
