    Hello,

    I was just curious if there’s any free plugins to convert wordpress to mobile app for buddypress themes?

    Thank you!

    Hi @surya1,

    i guess no. it’s a completely different work with their relative prices.
    Let’s wait if anyone knows more

    Hi @surya1, @youfriend,

    Actually there are, but I would recommend again using them as they are not notable for providing great performing apps. You might mostly end up with a sluggish version of your responsive website that might frustrate your members…

    The most notorious system is AppPresser but there are others. For more, please read the following post:
    https://www.wpbeginner.com/showcase/best-plugins-to-convert-wordpress-into-mobile-app/

    Our suggestion is to create your very own mobile app with a framework such as React Native and try to reach the WP-API activated on your website. Sadly, this will obviously cost you, but this will have a real mobile feel and perform very well. 🙂

    Cheers,

    Surya

    Thanks for that, Oliver and Andrea.

    I came across this add to home screen plugin which I think should be a good solution: https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-to-home-screen-wp/#description

    But I am not sure if it has mobile push notifications. That’s my primary use case. Any suggestions for that?

    Thank you!

    @surya1, my understanding is that this plugin will load some script to let your members download a Home screen shortcut to your website. However, this should not activate push notifications.

    Unfortunately, this is way out of my wheelhouse but I think that you might be interested in giving a try to this plugin:

    OneSignal – Web Push Notifications

    I would also suggest you to read this post as it compares multiple plugins providing a feature similar to the one you’re looking for:
