I've heard many people raved about the mobile commerce trends, made some research and many market reports said that mobile convert better than website, I also want to build a mobile app for my store.
Does Shopify have an app for that? And which one is good and affordable since I don't have a huge budget for this.

Hey Vipi,

 

Yes, totally. Mobile commerce (m-commerce in some circles) is a big wave. Here's a good article that touts the benefits of a mobile app over web in todays' e-commerce world. The data is strong.

Shopify themselves do not offer a mobile app offering, but there are many apps on their app store that do (called "mobile app builders"). Unfortunately, they're generally a bit expensive for what you get out of them and most still don't really give you a mobile app that feels like a modern piece of technology.

 

That's what led us to build Hex, which has the lowest starting cost and has an upscale design, leveraging decades of experience in big tech. It sounds like it'd be a good fit for you.

 

Reach out to us at help@hex-mobile.com and we can hook you up with a special discount and help you get your app configured. Just mention this post.

 

Looking forward to working with you. Cheers!

Converting a website into a mobile app can offer multiple benefits, enhancing user experience and expanding the reach of your content or services. Here are some key advantages:

Improved User Experience:
Mobile apps are optimized for smaller screens and touch interfaces, providing a more intuitive and user-friendly experience compared to mobile websites.

Increased Engagement:
Apps can leverage device-specific features like push notifications, which can be used to re-engage users, notify them of updates, or prompt them to take specific actions.

Performance Optimization:
Apps can be designed to be faster and more responsive than mobile websites, leading to a smoother user experience.

Access to Device Features:
Mobile apps can integrate with device features such as cameras, GPS, accelerometers, and more, enabling richer and more interactive functionalities.


Brand Presence and Recognition:
Having a dedicated app on users' devices reinforces brand visibility and helps build brand recognition. App icons on the home screen serve as a constant reminder of your brand.


Personalization:
Apps can offer a personalized experience by storing user preferences and behavior data locally, providing tailored content and recommendations.


App Store Exposure:
Publishing your app in stores (such as the Apple App Store and Google Play Store) can increase visibility and attract a broader audience.


Improved Performance Metrics:
Mobile apps can utilize analytics tools to gather detailed insights into user behavior, helping you make data-driven decisions to improve the app and user experience.


Competitive Advantage:
Having a well-designed and functional app can give your business a competitive edge, especially if your competitors rely solely on mobile websites.


While converting a website into a mobile app has its advantages, it's important to carefully consider your target audience, goals, and resources to ensure that it aligns with your overall business strategy.
