Guide to App Templates & Features
Locly Native is a feature-rich app creation platform with in-built proximity and location
support. This document will explain how you can turn your idea into a professional app
that’s ready for submission to the App Store and Google Play. There are just 5 simple steps:
Get in touch with us to talk about your project.
We can then advise you on the best possible
solution and outline pricing & timescales.
We create an app template for you that’s based
on your requirements. The template is placed
into your online account.
Start adding your own content by uploading
text, image, videos, audio and other files. In the
meantime, we’re working on any custom
features you’ve requested.
This is where you install your beacon devices
and set them up on the system. You can enter
GPS co-ordinates too.
After full testing your app will be submitted to
the App Store and Google Play. You can do this
yourself, or we can assist you.
Choose your Template
You can go for a standard template, which is shown in the Locly Native Demo app. You can
also make tweaks to this template, such as adding more Google fonts and card styles.
Alternatively you can go for something 100% custom-built for you - it’s up to you!
How Template Design Works
Your template will be created by one of our designers. Depending on the amount of
customisation work needed, we will either build a template directly into your account, or
create an image mock-up of the app for you to approve before it’s created and placed in
your account. Template designed are optimised so that the app looks great and performs
well across all Android and iOS devices.
