The "Sir Apfelot App" for iOS on the iPhone - finally in the App Store!

The Sir Apfelot app for iOS on the iPhone - it's finally ready and available for download! After looking for an iOS developer in November last year, among other things, here in the blog had been looking for, not only the search, but also the development of the application for iOS 11 and newer is over. If you want to view the contents of this blog, all guides, news, test reports, instructions, recommendations and reviews directly via the app on your iPhone, then just install the around 16 MB application and thus always stays up to date;)

The Sir Apfelot app for the iPhone

If you don't want to miss any of the exciting, helpful and informative articles on this blog, you can download the Sir Apfelot app for iOS on your iPhone now. Here you can individually set whether you want to be informed about new posts via push message. This is particularly helpful when I write about time-limited offers for hardware or software.

You can also mark your favorite posts as favorites and thus always have exactly the news at hand that you wanted to tell your colleagues about, or the instructions that will help you troubleshoot at home on your Mac. All functions of the app, screenshots from the iPhone X and of course the download can be found in the Apple App Store:

The app is of course installed on my home screen. Maybe it will make it to the start screen of your iPhone with you? I would be very happy!

The career path: programmer, problems and solutions

I have to admit, I imagined things to be a little easier. Before I started looking for an iOS programmer, I tried out various services that offer the option of converting a WordPress blog into an iOS app. It was already clear to me that you couldn't customize a lot here, but I didn't expect that not even something halfway useful would fall out. I think I had tried three WordPress-to-app services like this in total, but all of them failed.

My search for a programmer, mentioned above, was successful at some point after I got the tip from a developer, whose app I presented on the blog, to contact an iOS developer who was friends with him. And we actually came to an agreement relatively quickly. As the saying goes: the chemistry was right! Together we made a plan of which features the app should get, which version two it could get and how the whole thing should be implemented optically. After a few months of planning and development, version 1 was recently completed, which has now also landed in the app store.

You can't believe how many different resolutions you have to make the app icon available. ;-)

If one of you is also planning to "pour" a WordPress blog into an iOS app, then I can put you in touch with the programmer. There is no ready-made solution to this problem anywhere near good enough to present to its readers. And ultimately nothing beats your own app, which you can customize at any point in order to improve the user experience or to incorporate interesting features.

How do you like the iOS app for the blog?

What do you think of the Sir Apfelot iOS app for the Apple iPhone? Which display option do you use and which type of posts would you mainly mark as favorites? Feel free to leave your impressions and opinions as comments! Of course, I am always happy about a positive evaluation of the application in the store;)

And yes: of course, the app must also be available for the iPad. But for financial reasons I first had to bake small rolls and will then deliver the iPad version of the app soon. I will certainly inform you about this update with a small post in the blog when the time comes.

    I downloaded the app onto my iPhone SE. I have now tried it out quite extensively and wrote a review about it. In short: the app is a success. This can also be used very well on the IPhone SE (4 inch), is clear and ideally suited to making a preselection which articles you want to read later on to deepen on the "large" website. On the go, you are well informed on the iPhone. My thanks to the developers who also thought of us 4-inch iPhone owners.

      Hello Horst! Thank you for your assessment! I am happy to pass on the praise for the "small" devices! LG

    Hello Jens, I just installed the app on the iPad Pro and it works ... cool part and I have to say that I'm a little jealous ...
    Many greetings from Mari

      Hello Mari! Ah, good to know. My developer may have unlocked it for the iPad, but it's not a version in the App Store that is specifically optimized for the large display on the iPad. We want to tackle that in the next few weeks. But thank you for pointing out that you can use the app well on the iPad Pro! LG! Jens
