How to Convert your WordPress Website to an App Professionally
I remember when I started my first website, it was in the News and Entertainment Niche and most of my competitors (in my Country) had their apps on Playstore and were making extra revenue as well as reaching more people.
My Goal then was to create a professionally looking Mobile App, that’ll automatically update it’s content as I publish articles on my website – I surfed the entire internet but couldn’t find an easy way.
It later dawned on me that there was a misconception which was straying me away from my Goal, the misconception was that “I must know how to code before I use Android Studio”.
This came after I watched a YouTube Video on How to Convert your WordPress Website to an app using Android Studio and those guys were coding genius, to think that they were teaching someone like me who knows nothing in coding.
In Summary, I later found what was working for me and today I have around 7 apps on Playstore which were designed by me and remember that I don’t have any Coding Knowledge.
The Big-Time Game Changer for little me was CodeCanyon, I mean, you could literally download a pre-built app, then customize it with Android Studio.
For just $9, I secured my flutter app template for news sites then.. but that story is now over.
How then do you Convert your WordPress site to a Mobile app professionally
First of all, you either need Android Studio or Visual Studio Code Editor, these are the best 2 free Windows Software which people use to code. I personally recommend Android Studio because of it’s vast features.
Once you’ve downloaded Android Studio, you should now head over to CodeCanyon and purchase a suitable template for your site (Woocommerce, News, Marketing etc).
Here are my top Mobile App picks on Codecanyon:
NewsPro – Flutter News App for WordPress.
FluxNews – Flutter Mobile App for WordPress.
WooStore Pro E-commerce – Full Flutter E-Commerce app.
Ion Press – WordPress Native Ionic App.
StoreX Pro – React Native E-Commerce Template.
Unzip the File you downloaded from CodeCanyon and you’ll get access to the template as well as the documentation.
The Documentation contains a step-by-step tutorial on how you should customize the app from importing the templated to exporting your app.
If you’re too busy to customize the application templates you downloaded, you might want to hire a freelancer on Fiverr.
You Just Head over to their homepage and search for ‘building mobile apps’, then contact the gig seller via inbox and tell him that you already have an app template which you want him to customize for you.
He might have to create a Gig for that if he hasn’t already and you then book the gig and deliver the details he may ask for which include: App Name, Logo, Description, Website Link, Website Categories etc.
I believe that after reading this article, your eyes must have been opened to exactly what you need to do in order to create a professional app for your WordPress Website.
