If you have a blog or a website and looking to create or build an Android App for your site, you are in a great place.

In this Class, you will learn to create an Android App for your website with free tools. That too without any coding. The most important part is your Android App will have multiple features which developers charge thousands of dollars to build one. You need not to have any coding skills. I will show you step by step how you can do that for yourself without writing a single line of code.

The important features that you will build for your Andriod App are:

  • The app will look exactly like your website when viewed in a mobile device.
  • It will have an App Icon.
  • It will have a beautiful loading screen with your Logo, the App name and Version (optional).
  • It will have a page loading bar at the top of the App to show that the page is loading. The loading bar will disappear when the page loads completely.
  • It will show a message whenever the internet is disconnected. From the disconnected page, a user will be able to go to the Android Settings, from where they will be able to turn on their mobile data or their Wi-fi. Once turned on, the app will automatically load.
  • A user will be able to go back by pressing the back button on their phone. On the main screen, they will have an option to exit the app by pressing the back button again.
  • Most importantly, you will be able to send Push Notification to your App whenever you wish to with any link and view real time statistics.
  • No matter whether you built your website in Blogger or Wordpress, I will show how you can send push notifications automatically when you create a new Blog post.

And what else you need? I will give you my project file and I will guide you how to edit it and create your own Android App easily and hassle free.

Excited?? See you in my Class...!!

This is my app, and you can see the pages appearing exactly the way it has to appear in a mobile device. Let me take on one of my block post to show you further, and there is a progress bar again. At the top. I'll scroll below to show you. The elements of the page are intact, and it is appearing really very good to me when I'll press the back button here in my mobile. The Web we're will go back to its original page, and this is one important feature that I have built in. I'll turn off my data connection, even see that there's in no connectivity page, a network air page. From here. A user will be able to go to the settings from the belittling here, and from this page they can even turn on their WiFi or data connection to resume viewing the app on their mobile. Let me turn on my data connection again. Turn it on and you will see the APP is loading all by itself. Yes, there it is. the APP is loading. And when I'll press the big button again because I'm in the main screen, there will be an option, which will say, if you want to exit the empty if I press the yes button, the epic exit all by itself, I have two more features to show you.

I know you're excited. I'll see you in the coming lessons. Thank you. 2. App Prerequisites: all residents. Now that you're going to build an android air for your site, I must tell you that whether you have built your website in blogger or WordPress or any other platform, you should make sure that it is highly responsive. Responsive meant your website will automatically at just for different screen sizes and reports. It will automatically resize, hide, shrink or large a website to make it look good on all devices, be desktop tablet and phones. This is important because we will be using a component called Web viewer in our app, and if it's installed in move I'll or tablet, it should look good. Almost all the WordPress teams and blogger teams are responsive. If it's not or any of the element, maybe menu button or anything disappears are not applicable in a phone or a tablet. Go and change your team and find a suitable one. And for this tutorial purpose, I will use my website, which is our some vacancy dot in the site is built in Blogger. I'll show you that my website is full responsive. I am on a Google chrome brother. I will go ahead and write like and select inspect and from the list off available devices here I can select any device. When I select this device, the website will fit or a Bentley according toa, a model G four screen and from the list off available devices. From here, you can select a device. Inject that if it's fits for all of them. My website is appearing really nice for all the devices. Here. Let me select a tablet, I bet Brew, Yes, it's fits great In an iPad pro. Let me select another device. Let it be galaxy s five and all my elements are looking very good to me. The next thing that I will tell you east to have a sticky menu at the top off the page. Whenever your site is scroll down, you can see my this menu is sticky and when I'll scroll down, the menu will stay here regardless off wherever I am in my website. Why this is important because whenever someone is in your app, the only option they will have is a back button. Though I have enabled the web your component to go back to earlier page. If someone press the back button, a user should have a smooth navigation throughout your side through the menu. Okay, If your website has all the able features enabled, you are good to go. And for all the futures off the web that I have told you in the previous lesson, you don't need to do anything. I have all the futures incorporated in my project file that I'll give you. You will need to work and make some minor changes only for the push notification future, we will use one signals. Push notification tool for the same purpose.
