The aim of Apps is to improve the inherent capacity of the mobile device they are installed on so that users can take advantage of new services or tools. Mobile Apps were initially aimed at offering services to improve private and enterprise productivity, including e-mail, calendar, CRM tools and databases. With the rapid growth of the mobile device market and ever-increasing public demand for new Apps, solutions for new categories quickly appeared, and today there are hundreds of thousands of Apps available for just about anything you can imagine: playing games, reading magazines and newspapers online, banking, finding a phone number or an address, buying tickets, clothes, services, and much more.
Two other types of app exist, besides the mobile Apps:
Apps are usually developed for particular operating systems, and not all of them are always compatible with every OS.
Each digital distributor that distributes Apps is bound to a specific operating system.
The main operating systems for mobile devices, and their distributors, are:
FeedReady is a mobile application, available in versions for both iOS and Android. It can be downloaded for free from the App Store and from Google Play. It has been developed specifically for WebSite X5 authors to provide their users with an App so they can be kept constantly updated on the latest news through the website Blog and/or RSS Feed.
Thanks to FeedReady, everyone can link an App to their website to broadcast their contents, thus avoiding the complications and costs of developing their own App and having it published in the official stores.
It's all so simple!
Thanks to WebSite X5 you can create a website and, when you want to open a direct channel for communicating with your public to broadcast news and events, you start up a blog and/or an RSS Feed. Imagine the website for a restaurant that can broadcast a special theme evening, or the site for a sports club that publishes the results of the weekend's matches, or a shop that wants to advertise the sale due to start next week!
With the necessary settings in the website, it just takes a few clicks to broadcast the contents of the website's blog and/or RSS Feeds through the App (see How to broadcast website contents with an App). All you have to do now is invite your visitors to download and install the FeedReady App.
Thanks to the FeedReady App, your visitors can read all your latest news directly on their smartphones or tables.
WebSite X5 Manager is an app for website administrators so that they can manage their websites even when they are not at home or in the office and are working from a tablet and/or smartphone.
WebSite X5 Manager is available for both iOS and Android and it can be downloaded, free of charge, from either the App Store or Google Play. Once it has been installed, administrators can easily log in, using their credentials assigned in the Access Management section, and access the dashboard that provides a panorama of all the information available in the various sections.
The administrator can carry out a number of operations from the dashboard or the menu, depending on the features that have been set up on the website, such as:
If you want to be kept up to date with what's happening on your website, you can set up the app so that it sends you a push notification each time you receive a new comment, a new order or when stocks are running low, and so on.
WebSite X5 Manager lets you manage all of your websites and move quickly and easily between them: remember though, that WebSite X5 Manager can only be used with websites that have been created with WebSite X5 Professional as from Version 13.
