UppSite – Mobile Apps at Lightning Speeds

Just having a basic website isn’t enough to stand apart from the crowd anymore. If your small business’ website won’t work on smartphones and other mobile devices, then you could be losing out on sales without even realizing it. UppSite is a web-application that optimizes traditional websites and blogs for the mobile web.

To transform your own website, enter your URL and tell UppSite which content management platform you currently use. UppSite lets you choose between,, Blogger, and Tumblr. In order for UppSite to create a mobile version of your site, the application needs your platform credentials. Install and activate the UppSite plugin, and then fill in some basic details like the name of your new mobile app and a general description. You’ll also need to choose how you want the app to look and feel. In mere minutes, your mobile application will be up and available to download in Apple’s App Store, the Android Market, and UppSite’s Portal App.

Mobile apps created with UppSite run on iOS, Android, and Windows phones, and they can be easily edited by their publishers at any time, day or night, using UppSite’s mobile editing tools. Meanwhile, professional users who sign up for Premium and Deluxe accounts can make money from their applications by running in-app ads.
