The simplest way to show remote content in your App. The RSS feeds module is a very useful tool to fully utilize existing content posted on your website, blog or another online space. Also check out the CMS Connector module for an even more powerful way to show content from your existing CMS.
Create video albums by uploading your video files or by linking to a YouTube account or playlist. All you need to do is provide your YouTube playlist URL or YouTube account name. Videos can be added as sub-screens to a variety of other screens (see Folder Screens) to incorporate relevant videos in news articles, product pages, event speaker’s bios etc.
Build photo albums by uploading your photos or by linking to external sources like Flickr. Photo albums can be related to your products, services, offices, an event, your cat or anything else you can take a snap of. AppBaker takes care of displaying your photos in a grid, swipe to browse through your photos and pitch to zoom in and out.
Folder screens are screens that contain other screens. They provide the most flexible way of organizing your content and creating your App’s navigation structure. If you wanted, for example to provide the user with the option to tap on News then Sports and then Europe, the fist two (News and Sports) would be folder screens and Europe would be an RSS or XML feed containing European Sports News. See XML API for a dynamic way to create folder screens.
CMS Connector (XML API)
Use XML feeds to bring remote data in and publish an unlimited number of drill-down screens. This is a an extension of the RSS specification with special tags that AppBaker uses to convert your XML feed into fully styled screens. Pass on data as well as formatting parameters to create and handle how your app behaves through your own CMS.
Embed mobile versions of Facebook or Twitter and let app users engage with your social media channels. That will help you increase your social media audiences and to build a two-way communication with users of your app. You can also link your app to a twitter account timeline or a hashtag search result using RSS. An especially useful feature to promote twitter marketing activities and events even further.
Let users ‘share’ any content screen that has an external URL. Users can easily share your App content in a number of supported networks like email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, Tumbl and more. This functionality will also recognize other social media that the user is logged-in on their smartphone automatically, adding them on the list of ways to share your content. As we always say, sharing is caring.
Each app screen you create can be geo-tagged. Plot a screen on a native map or many of them at the same time. Users can see a single or multiple points on the map, near me points of interest, etc. Show users how they can get to your locations or event venue easier and faster, nearby hotels, ATMs, restaurants, beaches, etc.
