Make an IPhone App for Your Blog for Free Using Bloapp

If you want to make an iPhone app for your blog, hold off on getting expensive help from professionals first especially if you are not blogging for business. Bloapp provides a way to optimize your blog for mobile viewing and it is totally free.

More and more people are accessing websites, social networks and blogs on their mobile devices such as the iPhone. As a blogger, you will find that making your blog accessible and readable in a wide array of platforms will be good for you in the long run because giving readers more ways to view your blog increases the chances of retaining them and maybe even gaining new ones. This is why it is a very good idea if you make an iPhone app for your blog. However, most of the options you have involve paid services whether they are freelance app developers or web-based services. Fortunately, there is Bloapp to save the day.

This service does not actually create a stand-alone iPhone app for your blog. It only provides a platform that provides a way for your blog to be optimized for viewing on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. It also provides a sleek and convenient way for you to let your readers subscribe to your blog via a QR code. In a way, your blog will be an app within app.

In three easy steps, you can create this app within an app all within 5 minutes or so.

1. Register - You have to register for the service and add your blog to your account. This involves providing your blog URL and your blog feed URL. You will also be asked to verify blog ownership which can be done in two ways: meta tags and HTML file upload.

2. Customize - In this step, you can pick a theme for your blog and customize it with your own blog logo, header and background image. You can also set your desired font and color. All of these customizations are done in a wizard-type tool that makes customization fast and easy. Each modification you apply can be immediately seen via the live preview feature. Once you are happy with how it looks, you can save it so you can proceed to the final step which is promotion.

3. Share - In promoting your blog, you are given a link to the Bloapp app on the iTunes store to make it easy for your readers to download it. You will also be given your very own QR code for your blog which your readers can scan to directly add your blog to the app platform. Your readers can also search within the platform manually to find your blog without the help of a QR code.

Of course, if you make an iPhone app for your blog, you are not just promoting it. You also give yourself a chance to earn from this app by having ad banners at the end of your posts. You can add these banners via the Make Money section of the Bloapp website. You just need the code for a 320x50px ad banner to optimize your blog app for monetization. It may not be a stand-alone app for your blog, but for a free solution, it's a welcome tool in promotion and monetization.
