Swebapps – Create a Fully Operational Mobile Website in a Flash


Smartphones are the new way of the world. People of all walks of life are relying more and more on their portable computers that are much easier to tote around than a laptop. What makes mobile devices like the iPhone incredibly useful are the thousands of applications available to users.

That’s where Swebapps comes in. Swebapps specializes in the inexpensive creation of iPhone and iPod Touch web-based applications for businesses and non-profits. Creation of your application is simple and involves just six easy steps for you to perform: pick your industry, select the button for your app, pick any extras for your app, and in the final steps simply add your businesses information. These apps make it easy for you to communicate with your customers and let them know about upcoming and exciting information concerning your business, event, or service.

One great feature Sweb Apps offers is App Tracker. App Tracker will keep a log of how many times your application is used in any given day, providing you with valuable marketing stats.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep customers up-to-date on your daily and weekly restaurant specials
  • Impress investors with a simple, but efficient addition to the business
  • Promote new services and special offers to your most loyal shoppers using an iPhone app

Insider Tips:

  • Add, edit and delete information at your discretion without the help of Swebapps
  • Just because they don’t have a button image you’d like doesn’t mean you can’t ask them to make it
  • Add a client sign up feature for free that adds their phone number and email address to your contact list
  • Add video to your app to make it that much more interactive

What we liked:

  • Swebapps allows anyone at virtually any technology skill level create an iPhone mobile app
  • Over 70 different graphical button styles available to choose from
  • Beautiful interface and user experience
  • Instant delivery of an application up to and including the hosting on Swebapp’s servers

  • The layout is the same for each app Swebapps produces which could be noticed by users as the service takes off
