October 19, 2009 â€“ (The Hosting News ) Sweb Apps (http://www.swebapps.com), the Web site that lets anyone build a great-looking, highly-functional mobile application for their business, today announced an upgrade to its service that will make it even easier and faster to create applications in minutes.
Sweb Apps 2.0 introduces a new Rich Internet Application function that makes it the first and only Web site to let users view their landing page in real-time as they are building their iPhone application. The feature also gives users more control of their branding by allowing them to customize their app with buttons and background images, all on one screen. Restaurants, retailers, nonprofits and other businesses are taking advantage of Sweb Appsâ€™ increased ease-of-use to reach their customer base wherever they are.
â€œBusinesses are quickly beginning to understand the importance of being at the tip of their clientsâ€™ fingertips with mobile applications,â€ said Magaly Chocano, CEO and founder of Sweb Apps. â€œWe took feedback from our clients to add new functions to make that process even easier, so now they can retain their own branding in the app environment.â€
Sweb Apps 2.0 now features:
Drag & Drop, giving users the ability to create their own button image or background, or select background images from the Sweb Apps library to customize the look of their app – *I have tried this and it is really easy to use.
Real-time view of the landing page as they build it
Four new buttons, including Podcast, Audio Stream, YouTube and the â€œStoreâ€, which allows anyone to purchase products through the app
Ability to manage multiple applications within their account
Sweb Apps has four, six, and eight button packages. A one time set-up fee of $50 per button applies, and there is a $25 monthly hosting fee applied to every application. Additional fees apply for access to the App Trackerâ„¢. More information about Sweb Apps is now available at (www.swebapps.com).
