A powerful platform to amplify your content distribution and yield revenue.
We have seen a spike in the figures of mobile apps due to the ease of access, unified services, and mobile-friendly experience they offer. Mobile apps are like a double-edged sword that benefits both users and businesses. Considering the numerous benefits and potential of mobile apps, we have designed a platform that will allow publishers to create their own mobile apps. Yes, you heard it right! You will be able to develop your mobile app, and the best part is that you don’t need any technical expertise for this.
So, let’s just delve more into the details of this innovative and advanced mobile app development platform. What are the features of this unique platform, or what benefits can publishers expect from it? There must be a lot of questions in your mind. In this blog post, we will try to cover each aspect of Sortd apps, including the framework part.
Why we choose flutter as a framework?
There was a time when Java/Kotlin and Objective C/Swift were used as the primary languages for mobile app development. These platforms were not only expensive but also time-consuming. Also, you had to develop two separate apps for different platforms (Android and iOS).
Many cross-platform mobile app frameworks, such as React Native and Xamarin, were developed to solve this problem. Flutter is not only the latest one but also the cheapest, making it the best cross platform framework 2022.
It is an open-source and free framework offered by Google. Also, this is the best app development software for Android and ios as you don’t have to write a different codebase for each platform. Packed with many tools and widgets, it allows you to create a beautiful and high-performance mobile app in a short time frame.
Features of Sortd Flutter Apps
We have tried to incorporate all the advanced features in our mobile app platform so that our publisher partners can independently create advanced and high-quality mobile applications. Below is a list of all the unique features you can enjoy via this platform.
We truly understand the needs of our publisher partners and their end users. Hence, we have tried to integrate all the features that can contribute to imparting an excellent user experience. The text-to-speech feature will allow the end users to hear news stories in audio format. This adds another layer of flexibility in which users don’t have to stick to their mobile screen. They can simply listen to their favourite news items while walking or doing other work. Isn’t it just amazing?
2. No update required
Do you know what the best part about this platform is? For minor fixes or changes in design layout, publishers won’t have to release a fresh version update. All the changes made in the backend will be instantly reflected in the mobile app and the changes made will be available on all versions of the app.
3. Attractive themes
Three themes are available at present, but we will increase this number shortly. We have integrated several customisation options in these themes so that publishers can customise the design according to their individual requirements. There is a dark theme, a light theme, and a system theme. System theme means it will use the default theme of your device.
4. Easy uploading of apps
Uploading apps to the Google Play Store or Apple App store was a strenuous task, but we have simplified it. With the Sortd mobile app platform, app uploading has become much easier. You just have to fill out a form, and your mobile application will be quickly uploaded to Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The update will be available on all the versions. Within 10-15 minutes app will be uploaded.
This feature will enable publishers to use their local language. They can customise the categories, home screen, and side menu labels in their local language. This feature is specifically beneficial for vernacular newspapers.
6. Live TV
The Sortd platform is fully equipped to support Live TV feeds. Both YouTube and native are supported. This way, publishers will be able to share live news.
7. See changes in real-time
We have integrated the feature of barcode in the configuration part. The real-time insights will allow publishers to analyse the design layout and make further decisions quickly. This preview of changes made can be seen in draft mode by publishers before publishing it. One can also download the app through a barcode.
This feature allows publishers to put widgets on their homepage to highlight specific news or promotional activity. A weather widget is also there that will give a quick preview of weather updates.
9. Paid article
We have also integrated the feature of paid articles so that publishers can earn high revenue. This has become a popular functionality among publishers using the Sortd plugin. The readers will have to pay a certain amount to access the full article in this functionality. This will open a new revenue stream for publishers.
