We have an absolutely stunning mobile application that’s automatically fed content from our site, built by the mobile engagement experts at BlueBridge, a sponsor of the site. You can read more about their amazing mobile app platform and download our app here.
If your site or business has a mobile application, are you promoting its use on your site? The easiest means of doing this is to add a mobile app banner to your site for mobile visitors. Apple launched smart app banners and it’s a great tool to increase downloads. When a mobile user visits the site using Safari on iOS, up pops up a banner that a mobile app is available.
If you’d like to search for and create your own meta tag, you can use iTunes Link Maker
Interestingly, Google Android and Microsoft have not released a similar solution for their native browsers. That doesn’t mean that you can’t do it, though. There’s a jQuery script that you can add to your site that will not only set the iTunes Smart Banner, it will also create a banner for Google Android or Microsoft users to download the appropriate application if you’ve got those as well.
If your site is built on WordPress, the folks at E-Moxie have written a nice little App Banners WordPress plugin for you to fill in all your details and even add some settings for how it appears and how often using cookies.
