Last month Brian touched on building mobile apps. This month he's back, and we are going to build an iOS, Android and Windows application from scratch with AppPresser. AppPresser is a new framework that leverages WordPress and PhoneGap to easily build mobile applications. Why spend additional time and money building a mobile app that requires the same functionality of your WordPress website and needs to share data with your WordPress website when you can build a mobile app from your WordPress website. Once we build our app we will go over how to deploy it to the app stores.
