AppPresser – Mobile App Framework


AppPresser helps website builders make iOS/Android mobile apps out of WordPress sites simply and quickly.

AppPresser allows you to use a WordPress site as an app, including access to device features such as the camera, contacts, and more.

This plugin is not an app-creator in itself, it helps connect your app to WordPress. You must create an app with our app builder, then install this plugin on your WordPress site.

What this plugin does:

  • Is the base code for integrating your AppPresser app with your WordPress site
  • Activates AppPresser code and theme when your site is viewed in an app
  • Modifies WP-API requests to add featured image urls, used in the app
  • Adds ajax functionality used in other AppPresser theme and plugins
  • Adds a settings page

How do I use it?

  • Purchase a plan on AppPresser
  • Install and activate this plugin on your WordPress site
  • Follow the instructions in our documentation


  • AppPresser admin options page.


  1. Upload AppPresser to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Navigate to AppPresser settings page to configure

Getting Apppresser was the best decision I could’ve made. The customer support is super fast and helped me out several times. It’s also a really fast way to setup an app. I had set up the first version of my app in about a week.

Say what you will about Apppresser, but we have made three apps with their platform now and they have always provided great customer service. More often than not, they will do what they can to help out without charging me additional fees, and I appreciate that. Very responsive and helpful.

There were some issues with integration and communication, but their customer support team came through. I would recommend their service.

For over a decade my company has provided end-to-end website and mobile app solutions to small businesses as well as established organizations like the NFL Alumni and unions of the NYPD. We began evaluating the Agency Plus AppPresser Plan in February 2020 and found the interface extremely user-friendly. Since implementing AppPresser, we have been able to deliver mobile apps in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost all with just a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Because much of the app content synchronizes with WordPress in real-time and because our app images synchronize over our servers, we are usually able to completely refresh the look and feel of the app with fewer App Store Submissions. Since our initial purchase in February 2020, we have experienced major improvements in the AppPresser support process. As a matter of fact, Damien on the AppPresser support team has exceeded our expectations for support. In summary, with only basic HTML and CSS skills, we are able to deliver apps faster and cheaper in a user-friendly framework while greatly reducing the number of App Store Submissions. AppPresser has been a great investment exceeding our expectations! Lee Reeves, President and CEO Intelligent Design

I am not a developer, but have been using Wordpress for many years. So I’m pretty familiar with it and since my website for this project is Wordpress-based, I was excited to find AppPresser. I didn’t feel like I would have to reinvent the wheel or spend tons of time learning yet another platform that wouldn’t pan out anyway. People seem to be complaining about the price of this plug-in but you have to think about how much it costs to pay a development company or an app building software subscription every month – this is a steal. It just takes a little elbow grease. Do the work and you have a great outcome. It’s up to you. You can do tons with this plugin. You just have to play around with it and get to understand what’s possible. I was able to create a great looking, feature rich app with AppPresser that ties in with my site. I’m very satisfied. I landed with this plugin after spending a year messing with other options. I’ve reached out to AppPresser support about a dozen times so far (during the height of COVID btw) and received help within 24 hrs each time that was professional and resolved my issue. I’ve also witnessed several updates during my time with this plugin so far, so I can say they are continually making improvements. Great job in my experience!
