A mobile application is something that all of us interact with daily. Its definition is a type of application software designed to run on a mobile device, smartphone, or tablet computer. It is also known as an app, web app, online app, iPhone app, android app, or smartphone app. The worldwide mobile application market size will reach around USD 407.31 Billion by 2026, as mentioned here. Within NoCode Journal, we have, in the past, discussed other mobile app makers like Adalo. Here we present a different NoCode mobile application maker called Shoutem.
The NoCode platform Shoutem is an app builder based on React Native, which allows users to create truly native and cross-platform mobile apps.
It is an open-source platform that empowers everyone to make great mobile apps and helps companies and developers supercharge their mobile app development process with React Native. Shoutem was established in 2008 by Sasa Sarunic and Viktor Marohnic. It started as a tool for creating microblogging communities. With the rise of smartphones and the mobile app makers in 2013, the company launched the fourth version of the platform, designed for building iOS and Android apps. Today, the team consists of 40 people, and Shoutem is opening the fifth version of the React Native based platform to developers to create exceptional native mobile apps.
You can use the platform as a DIY app builder to create an app without a single line of code, as they already have most of the functions you'd expect from an app, waiting for you to plug them into your vision of a mobile app. The platform provides a complete development environment, tools, and freedom to change any apps functionality or create a new one.
The Shoutem product ecosystem has three distinct areas.
As we at NoCode Journal focus on the NoCode aspect of creating a technology product, we will delve deeper into the Builder Product line but just wanted to shout out to the other two product lines in case anyone was interested in learning more. While the Enterprise and Developer lines may need the app creators to know software development, anyone can use coding the Builder product line without any technical background.
The Shoutem Builder has more than 200+ customizable layouts for mobile apps with more than 40+ built-in screen types. Starting with the most basic features like directories, listings, blogs articles, Shoutem has everything to build a new mobile app quickly. These screens and designs can accommodate any media like photos, videos, podcasts, or streaming audio. Over and beyond, they also have all the regular features needed in any mobile application maker in 2020, like calendars, maps, events, and check-ins.
Shoutem's integration within the overall technology ecosystem is robust enough to make your mobile application engaging and usable. These integrations include CMS's like WordPress, event ticketing, and management platforms like Eventbrite and Songkick, audio, and video platforms like Vimeo, YouTube, SoundCloud, and Flickr.
One of the unique things that are different in Shoutem as compared to some of the other mobile application makers in the market is the ease you can monetize your app. From being able to push notifications to your application users to have native support for Sponsored content and different banner sizes for ads. Also, in terms of Ads, Shoutem is integrated with Ad Platforms such as Mopub, DoubleClick, AdMob, Flurry, and GreyStripe.
Shoutem also adds premade templates to help business owners get started with Mobile selling and create a shop integrated with Shopify. It also has community build and loyalty management functions to amplify your application and reward your customers.
With Shoutem for Resellers, agencies can build apps through branded domains, while giving their clients complete white-labeled access for app management. This kind of creative freedom will generate new and exciting business opportunities for your company in the mobile market.
Mobile phones and other gadgets have become part of our everyday lives. Mobile applications have become highly pervasive in recent years. Users can access and browse it while they are at the office, watching a movie, or searching for something. For the entrepreneurs, through an app, it can lead the potential customers to get more opportunities for their businesses.
