Creating an iOS Application Using WordPress

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

With
a whole lot of room for incessant innovation in WordPress, the web
development community is consistently striving to make WP spread its
wings further.



And
this is where the concept of using WordPress to create mobile apps
comes into existence. Yes, there are plugins and granted, they are
great, but if you are willing to compromise control and let the third
party tools dictate terms, you might as well go ahead with the likes
of AppPresser and Mobiloud. 
 



But,
when being in the driver’s seat is on your agenda, segue on to the
following partially plugin-assisted ways to create iOS apps using
Wordpress:




Build
a Web Application Theme that Stays True to the Most Basic Strictures

 



There
is a standard conceptualization (or should I say conceptual
standardization?) of mobile apps – a mobile app is the one that
runs and appears great on a mobile device. Though, this hardly covers
the native app concepts that exist at the very fibre of mobile apps
of all sorts. 
 



What
needs to be clearly understood is whether the guy who is buying your
app to sell it to his customers considers the standard web app as the
iOS app he is expecting you to roll out. If that indeed is the case,
you have your task cut out (it hardly is a task) – just code a
theme that will let your content be displayed on a Smartphone screen
in a manner most clean and clutter-free. 
 



OR,
you can use PhoneGap with technologies like CSS, JavaScript and HTML
to create a shell application. Accompanying it, you will need a
browser that shouldn’t display an address bar and something that
leads to the app you have created. The final app you have through
this method may not be something you would be immensely proud of, but
you have just created your first mobile app using few web
technologies, that alone is worth the price of admission. However, if
that doesn’t please you enough, there are more ways to follow:



WordPress
Will Collect Data for You. Now Input the Same to an App Generator

Here
is how it goes like:



To
begin with, you create a custom posts on the WordPress CMS. The
custom fields are then to be placed to where they belong. You can
then move on to creating a custom plugin that would lend a sense of
structure to the whole setup of data. And then, the app generators
come into play. Using these app generators, you have the wherewithal
to compile the apps with their own compilers. The data from WordPress
can then be fed using the URLs – which can either be done using
plugins or via the WordPress XML-RPC – and creating apps becomes a
task much feasible following that.



WordPress
Will Collect Data for You. Now, Create the iPad side of things
Natively

 



Well,
if you don’t have a whole lot of idea about this one, you have the
option of branching out to a development company that has the
expertise to blend the WordPress strategy with the mobile technology
in the most seamless and effective fashion and thus create
exceptional native apps. 
 



All
said and done, there are a bunch of things that ned to be off the
deck before you swing-start the development process. Coalescing data
from the WordPress URLs has to be done in a precise manner you must
be appropriately equipped to handle the responses. The UI operations
also have to be handled with utmost care and not to mention, do steer
clear of all the possible oversights.
