Weever appBuilder is a service that lets you build and deploy a mobile web app, quickly and easily from your Joomla site!

The mobile web app functions and feels just like an iOS, Android, Blackberry 10, or Windows 8 app -- all within the mobile browser! There is also now the option to submit your app to native app stores.

This extension enables you to build and manage your app entirely within Joomla's administrator backend, utilizing mobile best practices to present your content for a mobile-specific context. App visitors will be able to quickly and easy find your latest news, follow your social network feeds, touch to make a phone call or email you, watch your videos, browse your photo feeds, and more.

Setting up a Weever App is extremely easy. All you do is:

- Sign up for an API key
- Install extension
- Paste in API key
- Start adding content and branding to your app!

The extension will forward the devices you specify to your app, and automatically provides the app with the most up-to-date info, so you do not have to manage both your app and your site.

Currently natively supports:

- Joomla Content Articles, K2
- Social and more: Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, Youtube, Vimeo, Flickr, Picasa, Foursquare, Wufoo Forms, more being added regularly

Your app will work for iOS devices, Android devices, Blackberry 10 and Windows 8 devices.

Make appBuilder Your Mobile Mapping Solution:

- Build mobile maps with geotagged content from Joomla 2.5 or 3.x Content, and K2 Content using the Geotagger, a comprehensive geotagging plugin with a point-and-click UI in the K2/Joomla article editor.
- "Nearby" tab shows a list of content items based on their distance from the mobile device's GPS position.
- End-users can filter categories of content on the maps to make looking for relevant content easy! One-click from a content item to Driving Directions too!
- Support for KML and GeoRSS data

Localized Apps in English (US, Canada, UK), French (Canada), Portuguese (Portugal), Mandarin (China), Italian (Italy), Finnish (Finland), Dutch (Holland) available.

I don't write many reviews but this app is great! I had been looking for a mobile solution for my site and this fit the bill and more. You can see that the creators of this app have put a lot of thought and time into it and with the updates that will be coming out soon I expect everyone to be using it. On an iPhone you can even add it to your desktop and it functions like a real app. There are a few things that are not available yet but after talking with their amazing support team I have been assured they will be in the next update due out any day. Great job guys!!!!!

Weever is a fantastic solution that, within minutes, provided a sleek, professional solution for our mobile visitors. It was a breeze to set up, and the intuitive control panel made it easy to incorporate not only our site's content instantly, but our social network posts, too. Because of that, Weever really brought our site a whole new level. Two thumbs way up!

The back-end interface is intuitive and with the variety of features catered for, the weever app seems to provide something for every website - blogs, social media feeds, one-touch contact, video/photo stream, events...We use it on the Irish Joomla User Group website and it's gotten a lot of positive feedback from our members. The only disadvantage is there is no forum integration as of yet. Most importantly, the developers are approachable and enthusiastic and we're really looking forward to seeing how this extension develops.

The support from the developers is great. An easy way to make a iPhone app (with the added Blackberry app included) Have looked at specific Iphone apps although having to Submit to apple is not what I wanted. Having the ability to change items on website and having them on the Iphone straight away is great.Instead of storing Photos on my website but using Flickr allows me to quickly get those photos on the weever app.Using Jflickr on website also allows me to use the same sets...Great.Soon weever will have the ability to view Flickr sets i believe.Another intergration with wufoo will allow me to link straight to Surveys, Newsletters and Online store i believe....Cant wait. Have already got a google Calendar on the iphone app but waiting on the EventList calendar integration hopefully this will be as easy as the Google Calendar.The Contact tab is great now the iphone customers can email, Phone or find the shop easily..... Keep up the good work ... Thanks for quick response and help with questions

Nice concept but OMG is this SLLOWWW! Even their demo takes about 20 seconds to respond to each and every tap. Does not respond anywhere near a mobile app so that iclaim is deceiving.

Hope they can tweak this to get some decent response time. Also need to dump the address bar if you're trying to simulate an app. iWebkit does this extremely well is much much faster.

Hi Ringo7,
Please submit your issue to our support ticket system. We'd be especially interested in what phone you are using. Please note we're still in beta, and could really use more details about your issue in order to resolve it.

We use Weevers Apps on our Montréal JUG site and I love it. It does a very good job of transforming our site in an iphone app (or Android, blackberry...)

Everything on our site is is not available trough the app, but the important things are there. Especially the info for our next meeting: date, hour, address and link to the google map!

I recommend it. It's very easy to setup in a couple of minutes. No app coding skills required!
