Question: I already have a WordPress website but I’d like to have my own mobile app available so that people can place orders with my online store. Is there a cheaper alternative to building a fully custom app for both iOS and Android?
Answer: If your WordPress website is built so that it is responsive it should be available to both iOS and Android devices.
If you want the native app that would be available in the Apple app store or Android marketplace, have a look at AppPresser and their Reactor product. Both integrate with WooCommerce. It allows you to create a native app from your WordPress website.
You could check out Ionic and Appcellerator as well. There are dozens of hybrid app frameworks to choose from. As for ecommerce, depends on if they want just online orders, or payments as well… And if you want point of sale (POS) integration or not. It can certainly be done for less than from scratch, but it’s far from a simple task.
