In today’s post I’ll be reviewing “Zapable”, the new cloud-based app building software from Andrew Fox and Chris Fox. Zapable is launching today, and since the launch was announced it’s been getting a lot of interest from Internet marketers and small business owners who are looking to cash in on the popularity of mobile phone apps
Hopefully, this post will offer some insight that will help you reach an informed decision as to whether this software is something that will be right for you.

Let me start off by explaining why I was eager to do a review of this software. For starters it’s no secret that we pretty much use our smartphones and tablets for EVERYTHING these days, and the “app” is increasingly an important feature in online commerce.
The problem is that, most Internet marketers and small business owners don’t really understand how to profit with apps. And on top of that most people don’t have the technical skills to hand code apps, and hiring a coder can cost a lot of money (with no guarantee that the app your coder builds will be what you want!)
That’s where Zapable comes in. Basically it was designed to give people like you and me, who might not have the most advanced technical skills, the ability to create beautiful, powerful, money making apps quickly and easily. Score.
What Are Some Of The Uses Of This Software?
In the pre-launch videos, (one of which I have posted below) Andrew Fox has done a good job of explaining some of the many different ways that you can use Zapable to make money with apps. I found this very interesting, because I had never thought of most of these before and it really goes to show just how many different possibilities there are out there. Who knows, I might even get inspired to start a new business venture!
An app is a great add-on for any type of business you might have or that you might choose to build in the future. Even a Facebook page or blog can simply add an app as another way to keep in touch with your followers. Whats great is that once users download your app you can contact them directly without needing them to come to your site. In fact apps may even be a more powerful way to connect with people than email marketing. Anytime you want to make sales, just push them a message! And you can build a store inside your app and sell your own products, affiliate products, Amazon products, etc…
Zapable Product Details…
This app building software is cloud-based, and it’s compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems, which means it will create apps that will work on basically any type of cell phone or tablet whether its an Apple or an Android.
One of the first things that struck me about this was that it’s completely customizable, so you have complete control over the app you build. You can decide whether you want to include a map to a local business and provide real-time directions to your users based on there current location. You can add a link to a Facebook page, an image gallery, a video gallery, static HTML pages, etc… The apps can integrate with an insane amount of other programs too like ones to reserve a table at a restaurant or to order take-out. Obviously those two integrations I just mentioned would be a great selling point if you work with local businesses and want to get some restaurants as clients.
When it comes to the actual designing of the apps everything is done via a super easy drag-and-drop interface.
This is obviously a great feature for those of us with less tech skills because it’s user friendly and requires no html or coding experience. You simply follow the steps and customize the app design so that it interacts with your customers the way you want it to. More seasoned marketers who may already be outsourcing app creation should like this because it means you can cut down on expenses. Instead of hiring a design professional to build and customize your apps you can have one of your in house team members do everything, or you can just do it yourself!
This list of features is getting long and seriously we are just scratching the surface here, but I think those are some of the coolest features…
A Few More Of The Features I Liked Best:
Dynamic – It provides you with automatic syncing and notification capability so you can notify your app’s users whenever there are promotional events or coupon offers at a business, which is a nice way to quickly get the word out to customers. If you have an e-commerce business, the app allows you to put your entire inventory into the app, which is yet another example of how this software improves interface with potential customers.
Social Integrations – It can be integrated with all major social networks and allows you to upload videos from YouTube. Not only that but you can build out products based on keywords on Amazon.
Build Your Email List (or your client’s lists) – You can create squeeze pages to add to your subscriber list with this software and it has all kinds of cool extras such like opt-in forms and push button notifications. I could go on and on here, but let’s just say there’s just a massive amount of cool stuff you can do with this software to create really state of the art apps.
Training – the program includes comprehensive training on how to get the most out of the software and even includes templates that you can use to contact businesses to sell apps to if you do local marketing.
What I DIDN’T Like…
You may be asking yourself, “is there a downside to this software?” However, In all seriousness, I honestly DO NOT see a downside here. If you’re looking to launch a new app or apps for you business(es) or you are interetuing in selling apps to clients, this is THE hottest, most powerful app building software available, hands down.
As our economy becomes more dependent on technology, taking advantage of an app building software like this is a no-brainer in my opinion.
In the end, given the current trend in app usage and how important apps are in building a business in today’s digital economy, I would absolutely recommend Zapable. Click Here to lock in Early Bird Pricing for Zapable Now!
