GoodBarber: become a reseller of mobile apps!

If you think about starting your own mobile apps development agency, you're at the right place. The GoodBarber reseller program brings all the flexibility to make your projects grow, maintaining a good quality price rapport, with a fixed pricing to create unlimited apps. Our app builder is an efficient tool used by more and more agencies to create and sell apps for their customers. The main goal is to sell your mobile services using our platform. In other words, the idea is not to resell the actual app builder platform itself, but to resell apps that you make. The process usually goes something like this : clients will communicate their mobile needs to the reseller, the reseller works their magic in the backend, invites the client to review their work, and the deal is sealed. When the client logs into the backend, the GoodBarber logos and references are eliminated and replaced by those of your agency, so coherence in branding can be maintained. Only your brand will be highlighted when the customer connects to the back office of his app. The white label option is included in the Reseller program. In addition, we have resources available to help you sell apps and improve your knowledge of the GoodBarber platform. All of the available resources are listed here. In particular, we've created white label documents with a clean design and arguments that will help you sell apps. These documents are available as a word file and slides. You can download them and use them as you wish! This video gives you an overview of the reseller dashboard and the possibilities offered by the white label option, included in the reseller subscription:

GoodBarber Developers’ Best Practices to optimize the speed of your app.

Mobile has trained all of us to expect to get what we want, when we want. The impact of this new way of thinking can even be seen in the way we interact with mobile apps. With every extra second your app takes to load, your conversion rates drops by 7%. Making keeping your app running fast a must. For example, when Amazon  decreased their loading time by 100-millisecond, their revenue increase by 1%! And with so many options available in the Stores today, users patience is shrinking. You’ll read here and there that the ideal loading time for an app is 2 seconds. That’s a good average indeed. We will see in this blog post how to stay close or below this threshold. We’ve asked one of our lead developers, Sergio, for some advice on how to optimize the speed of your GoodBarber app. Here are his 3 best practice tips:

Fire Cloud Messaging, the system used to send and receive push notifications will therefore be the only system in effect from April 11, 2019. You probably missed the announcement by Google and it’s perfectly normal. It’s GoodBarber's job to make sure that your Android app adapts to Google's regular updates (and Apple's iOS app).

Maps management on PWAs: choose your provider

You may not know it, but recently Google has changed its pricing policy for its Map services. Previously completely free, the use of Google Maps is now subject to billing, and it may impact you if you reach a certain rate of use on your PWA.   Explanations.
Mathieu Poli, Wednesday 5 December 2018

What's new at GoodBarber? November 2018

As you know, at GoodBarber, we like to give you choices. Once again this month, our teams were working on a specific option, which has been talked about for a few months following Google’s pricing changes. Now you can choose the map provider that will be used to display all the maps of your PWA: Google Maps or Mapbox. There are not a lot of map providers in the market and new uses are giving location data more and more value. If those services were previously free, pricing is now applied in most cases. With this in mind, it was essential for us to give you the opportunity to choose the provider that best suits you between these two market institutions. You can find a summary of the developments and updates made during November, 2018 below:

Restrict access to your PWA with a password

You know that Progressive Web Apps are accessible via a URL, indexed by search engines, and can therefore potentially be used by all web users.  This is a huge advantage in terms of visibility and audience acquisition in most cases, however in certain situations, it can actually be a setback.   Maybe you want to take advantage of all the perks of a progressive web app, but for its content to be available only to a private audience, like in the case of enterprise apps? Now it's possible, thanks to a new feature:
