A WordPress for creating mobile applications

Written by

Just as no self-respecting company should neglect its online presence or underestimate the usefulness of having its own website, it is hard to imagine a brand of some weight that has not developed its own mobile application. Democratization in web development has its greatest exponent in content management platforms such as WordPress, which, thanks to its modules and templates, reveal the magic of computing to people without any knowledge of programming languages. The Ilerdense startup King of App has set out to do the same with mobile applications.

Who are we talking about?

Xavier Barata saw his opportunity when he was working in an advertising agency, after hearing several clients complain about the difficulties they had in developing their own mobile application. In 2014, he launches King of App, an open source tool that allows you to build applications intuitively for 50 euros. The price, a decisive factor in its solution, is the result of a modular management system that simplifies the process of creating the application. “We have developed a technology that allows us to reduce costs and production times”, summarizes Barata. In addition to allowing you to create it from scratch, its platform allows the user to convert a website designed with WordPress into an application easily. This symbiosis is particularly interesting, considering that three out of five websites in the world are built with this content manager. Integration between different systems is also simplified on its platform, which allows communication between applications via API.
