Location Based Apps - No Coding Required


Published on

Just because you built your site before the mobile explosion does not mean you need to start from scratch, or you can't catch up to your competitors. Within a few extra days you can turn your current Drupal site in to a publishing platform for any number of Apps. Of course, many more hours will be devoted to the actual building of the iOS/Android/Blackberry/etc Apps.

The decision of whether to build native versus simply a responsive or mobile web presence requires substantial thought and discussion. The presentation will outline a number of the benefits of each, and specifically why native apps should be considered even after making your responsive/mobile web presence. I will outline the steps I took to take my own site (Tag Sell It) from a desktop only Drupal website to powering 5 separate revenue generating iOS/Android/Amazon Apps. These Apps not only increased the revenue of the site, but serve as a powerful marketing tool for a start-up site.

At the 2011 CMS Expo Tag Sell It was awarded the "Best Drupal CMS App Developer" award.
