The Best WordPress Plugins for Mobile App Conversion​

Since plugins are usually the most accessible option for creating a companion app for your WordPress site, we’ve rounded up a few of the top choices. Here are four you might consider using.

1. MobiLoud

The MobiLoud plugin banner.

MobiLoud converts your WordPress website into a native mobile app for iOS and Android. It comes with a customizable interface that integrates your existing theme and plugins, including WooCommerce. Additionally, MobiLoud’s team is on hand to manage the building and publishing processes, as well as to lend their top-notch support.
Key Features:
  • Designed specifically for high-traffic WordPress websites
  • Provides a comprehensive service, including publishing your app to the Apple and Google Play stores
  • Includes industry-standard features, such as push notifications and offline support
  • White labels your app so no MobiLoud branding is visible
Compared with the average development agency, MobiLoud builds apps fast and affordably. Setup and configuration costs start at $950, and ongoing updates and maintenance plans start at $199 per month.

2. AndroApp

The AndroApp plugin banner.

If you’re on a tighter budget than what MobiLoud offers, you might want to consider AndroApp. It enables you to quickly create an Android app for your WordPress website. In a few minutes, you can have a testable app complete with custom features of your choice.
Key Features:
  • Has a large selection of themes
  • Provides options to monetize your WordPress mobile app using AdMob and Appnext
  • Includes unlimited push notifications, caching support, and custom branding
  • Is easy and simple to configure
Unfortunately, this plugin does have a few drawbacks. It’s not compatible with WooCommerce or BuddyPress, and won’t be helpful if you want to build an app that’s compatible with iOS. With that said, AndroApp is very affordable. You can build your app for free, and maintenance is just $66 per year.

3. WPMobile.App

The WPMobile.App plugin banner.

Another option for mobile app creation is WPMobile.App. This quality plugin enables you to convert your WordPress site into an app for Android, iOS, or both. It’s easy to use, with configuration and customization options available right in your WordPress dashboard.
Key Features
  • Integrates with Weglot to translate your app
  • Includes standard features such as push notifications and offline content
  • Offers unlimited updates and support
  • Provides free app testing
Notably, WPMobile.App is a budget-friendly solution. It exclusively offers lifetime licenses, which means you don’t have to worry about subscription renewals and recurring fees. An app for Android or iOS runs for 79€, or you can build an app compatible with both systems for 149€.

4. AppPresser

The AppPresser plugin banner.

Finally, the last plugin we recommend you look into is AppPresser. Rather than converting your WordPress site into an app, it connects an app made with AppPresser’s service to your website. This gives you total control over your platform’s design, with a visual builder similar to the WordPress Customizer.
Key Features:
  • Enables you to design your app using AppPresser’s easy-to-use builder
  • Provides instant visual feedback with its live app preview
  • Offers features such as Facebook login, social sharing, and push notifications
  • Includes access to device functionality including contacts, cameras, and more
To get started, you’ll need an AppPresser account. Plans range from $249 per year to $599 per year for access to advanced features. If you’d rather have an expert team build your app than use their tools to do it yourself, you can check out their custom development services.
