How to get started with AppBuilda
It's easy to build an App when you know how. AppBuilda provides a really simple way to get started building an App whether it's your first time or your 10th.
Step by Step guide to getting started on AppBuilda
Step 1: Decide what kind of App you want to build
If you've got an idea for an App that's a great start. Turning that idea into a reality is achievable if we break it down into steps.
At AppBuilda we help you combine different types of App content and features together to make your own unique App. But to do that we need to first work out what types of content and features you need for your App to work.
We're going to use an example of a comic book store. In order to create an App for a comic book store you would need the following:
- An information page about the comic book store
- A contact us page that shows where the store is
- A gallery of the comic book store so people can see what it looks like
- A list of the new releases to buy and when
- An event showing the next in-store comic auction
Each of these things can be added one at a time and when combined you have a comic book store app! For more example of 'types' of App and the combinations of pages needed, take a look at our App formulas page.
If you're ready to continue to the next step, let's take a look at creating an App profile.LINKS:
Step 1: Add an App Profile
At the most basic of levels every App needs introductory information to say what it is and what it does. That's what we call an App profile. It explains to everyone else what it is that the App does and allows you to control what your App can do.
What you'll need to complete an App profile is the following:
- A profile image - ideally this is at least 400px wide by 400px high
- The contact information you would like to include in your App - i.e. email address
There are some additional choices that you can make in your App profile, but you can take a look at these later.
So, when you're ready, let's have a go at creating an App profile.LINKS:
Step 3: Deciding what content to build next
Ok, so now you've created your App profile, you'll need to plan out what content you want to add next.
The best way to do this is work out all the things you would like to include in your app in terms of pieces of information and then decide whether they are best completed with either a standard 'information' page, a media file or download, a gallery of images or an event.
By breaking down what you want to add into these types it then makes it easier to add your content step-by-step.
Each one of these content types is available to add on AppBuilda - go to your 'Add content' section and click on the appropriate button.LINKS:
