As you might already know, over the past months we have been trying to build apps in line with Apple’s new review guidelines. Apple announced that they would no longer be allowing apps built with templates and/or app generation services in the App Store. We tried our best to work around / with these new guidelines, but in the end Apple did not want to cooperate. The next step was looking for fitting alternatives for iOS apps so we would still be able to offer you our fantastic product and you would be able to keep building amazing apps with AppMachine.
This is why we are excited to announce the next version of our advanced app building platform: AppMachine 3.0. For almost five years, AppMachine has helped SMB’s from all over the world in transferring their business - and those of their clients - to the mobile space, and we are proud that we will continue to do so with AppMachine 3.0. This new platform will focus on creating mobile applications based on HTML, also known as Progressive Web Apps (PWA).
We expect to launch the beta of AppMachine 3.0 and disclose our new pricing plan at the beginning of 2018.
Existing AppMachine customers will have the option to convert their current Plus app to the new AppMachine 3.0 when they login on the new designer. This process is quick and easy, so you can convert all your existing apps to amazing PWA’s.
AppMachine 3.0 will focus strictly on Progressive Web Apps, so building new native apps on the current designer will not be possible anymore. We will still support your published apps, maintenance of these apps on the Designer will remain possible. We will continue to support published iOS apps as long as Apple allows us to do so.
